Dark Brown Warmblood colt

DOB: 19th December 2022

Sire:   Karajan (IFS) (Kannan/Quidam De Revel/Cornet Oblensky)

Dam: Bandarrah Pixie (Copabella Visage/xx)

This colt is just like a super model....smashing good looks and legs that go forever..!​  He has a pedigree that has jumping superstars at every place you look.

Kenny's sire is the outstanding young Kannan sire, Karajan. 


The Westphalian licensing of 2016 was marked by an outstanding lot of show jumpers which shone brilliantly at free jumping. Among those, one stallion was especially remarkable: Karajan. All experts agreed, his free jumping was sensational: with overview, perfect manner and boundless capacity. A stallion with a good face, correct foundation, supple body and outstanding basic gaits.

His phenomenal pedigree carries three Olympic fathers, who dominate international show jumping. Kannan, currently No. 5 in the world rankings, is father of Nino de Buissonnets (Steve Guerdat), the Olympic champion of 2012 and fourth of Rio 2016. Verdi, still actively participating in sports at the age of 14, won the silver medal with the Dutch team in London and the Gold medal at the World Championships and the European Championships.

Cornet Obolensky, currently No. 3 in the world rankings, was represented by six offspring in Rio. Six million Euros in lifetime earnings were won by his offspring.

The falling dam line carries Lincoln L by Landadel, who won international jumping Grand Prix, as well jumping stallions Don Juan and Servus. The dam line provided licensed stallions Samorano and Sulaiky v.d. Helle by Stakkato, as well as Cornet Session and Coloseo by Cornet Obolensky.


Kenny's dam is by the incredible pinto stallion Copabella Visage, who is no stranger to the world of jumping.

Visage was an immediate sensation when he arrived here in Australia as a 5-year-old: Champion Five-Year-Old as well as Champion of Champions at the DSJWTS 2003; then Champion Young Event Horse at Sydney Royal 2004. He moved from D Grade into C Grade in just a few months of competition, and continued to make jumping look effortless at A & B Grade.

Christopher Burton took over the training ride on Visage while Julia was away on a prolonged show run in 2008, and the pair got on so well that we decided to see what they could produce in the competition arena.

The 2008 National Championships provided them with a challenging debut, and they won the Mini Prix in an outstanding display of style and control. They soon followed this up with a 2nd placing in the Sale World Cup class, Chris's first time out at this level of showjumping.

Julia's earlier successes included a win at their first Grand Prix outing together at Camden Show in March 2008. And this was shortly followed by a successful run in Part 2 at Sydney Royal.

In 2007, he notched up regular wins and places with Julia in the Young Rider classes across the country. In 2006 he won the Mini Prix at Tempo and followed that up with wins in the A & B Grade as well as the Grand Prix at Maitland Show.

He also held his top position in the leaderboard for the Tri-Series Grand Prix, until changed circumstances meant he did not compete in the final round at Tempo. He still had sufficient points, however, to finish 2nd overall.

Visage's performances have been consistently outstanding, including a breathtaking clear round in his first ever World Cup, at Sydney Royal 2005. He won or placed in every class in Part 2 as well, then went on to make us proud at the Copabella Classic a few weeks later. He also placed 7th in his second World Cup in Queensland in 2006.

Vicki Roycroft found Visage in France in 2003. Born in 1998 and standing at almost 16.2hh, Visage is a wonderful example of the modern sporthorse: great bone, athletic frame, movement and paces that dressage judges are seriously impressed by. He is calm, intelligent, friendly and trainable. And he loves his work.


Put these pedigrees together and this colt is sure to have an exciting future in the jumping world....whether it be pure show jumping or eventing.  He is for sale and a payment plan can be arranged to coincide with his weaning.  We envisage that Kenny will mature to a good 16.3-17hh and will be a fabulous sport horse for the future
