Headleys Deluxe offers an exciting opportunity for British breeders looking for quality Thoroughbred bloodlines. Having completed his first season eventing under Italy’s Giovanni Ugolotti, Headleys Deluxe has shown a convincing start to his career. Licensing with the AES in Spring 2019 before qualifying for the Burghley Young Event Horse Finals on his first ever outing, finishing 2nd at Rockingham International Horse Trials BYEH qualifier. Judges awarded a 10 for conformation and 8 of 8 for quality. 7th place at Gatcombe BYEH and performing at the Burghley Young Event Horse 4 year old finals ended Headleys Deluxe’s first season under saddle on a hugely promising note. 2020 saw Headleys Deluxe enter his first BE100’s, with double clear finishes in two of his three events, jumping clear cross country every time.
Headleys Deluxe is a tall, modern Holstein stallion with three uphill paces and a superb kind and trainable temperament. He carries over 70% Thoroughbred blood, a great length of stride in the walk, a supple trot and a round and powerful uphill canter. An effortless, ground covering gallop compliments a quick, careful jump action with excellent bascule over fences. Headleys Deluxe offers a new combination of the best European Thoroughbred and Warmblood bloodlines to British breeders, with his beautiful head, well-set neck on a sloping shoulder, powerful hindquarters and good feet. Offering quality thoroughbred blood without compromising on frame, paces, or temperament, makes him an ideal choice for the professional and amateur event rider.
Sire, prolific black type German Thoroughbred stallion Duke of Hearts is licensed with the four main warmblood studbooks- Hanover, Holstein, Oldenburg and Trakehner. A fantastic achievement for any stallion, particularly a Thoroughbred. Duke of Hearts won on the racetrack at distances over a mile, demonstrating not only his speed but also the stamina that is so crucially important in the professional event horse. Duke of Hearts has 3 licensed sons and several successful event horses competing internationally. Son Duke of Champion competes successfully at CCI4*L, finishing 5th in the Blenheim 8/9 year old CCI4*S 2019, with Daytona Beach at CCI4*L; Baroness 374 is competing at CCI4*S and 1.30m; Duke’s Delight CCI4*S, and Duchesse of Hearts W show jumping internationally at 1.35m amongst many others. Duke of Hearts passes on his modern frame, elegant paces and athleticism coupled with a trainable attitude and bravery cross country.
Sire Halling, owned by the Darley Stud, is one of the most prestigious international blood sires, with five Group 1 wins to his name. Halling won 12/18 race starts, including doing the double winning the Eclipse Stakes and the International Stakes in 1995 and 1996. As a sire Halling sired two other licensed sons, Fisich XX and Dandoun XX as well as CCI3* event horse Knockavardagh Boy.
Duke of Hearts’ Damsire Königsstuhl was a phenomenally successful racehorse, and remains the only horse to win the prestigious German Triple Crown, winning all three races in 1979: The German 2000 Guineas; the Deutsches Derby and the Deutsches St. Leger. This achievement led to Königsstuhl being crowned German Horse of the Year, followed by German Champion Sire 1988 and 1994.
Headleys Deluxe’s damline hails the most respected jumping bloodlines in recent years including Caretino, Caletto II, Acord II, Ahorn Z, Calypso I, Cor de la Byrère, Ladykiller XX, and Landgraf, amongst many others. Colourful Lady competes at CSI5* show jumping under Capt. Brian Cournane in the USA proving to be a valuable addition to the Holstein studbook both in sport and breeding. Headleys Deluxe is her only offspring. Grand-dam Hakuna Matata has produced three FEI jumpers and 2 state premium daughters, with her dam Weltlady producing a state premium daughter and international 1.45m jumper.
Damsire Casall needs no introduction having competed soundly for 13 seasons injury free. Casall finished in the top 25 of the 2012 London Olympics; 4th and won team bronze at the 2013 Europeans; 4th 2014 WEG. The Global Champions Tour proved a happy hunting ground year on year competing in 39 Grand Prix’s, winning 9, alongside 2nd overall ranking 2014, 3rd 2015 and finally being crowned 2016 LGCT Overall Champion, beating the world’s best. As a sire he has proven equally as impressive, siring 153 licensed sons and 53 state premium mares. Casall comes from the Stamm 890 damline, one of Holstein’s most successful performance mare families.
Headleys Deluxe’s pedigree combined with his promising competition record have shown that he is an outstanding addition to British breeding, offering the best of modern bloodlines to event and jumping breeders.
