Furioso II, sire of the 'keur' stallion Purioso, produced 200 state premium mares and no less than 68 approved sons, many of which are rendering their services on other continents. We can therefore justifiably claim that Furioso II has influenced breeding on a worldwide scale. In the Netherlands his sons Purioso, Voltaire, Thorwaid, Faust Z and Forum have been approved. From the sport we know, for example, Osta Carpets Cachet (Jean Ciaude Vangeenberghe), Filius (Franke Sloothaak) and the stallion Heisman (Michael Matz).
Full brother to Furioso II is the French stallion Mexico, whose son Le Mexico has become famous in the Netherlands as a showjumper producer. The Oldenburger dam of Purioso is Alinda, daughter of the famous Holsteiner Marteli, who descends from the sport horse supplier Trebonius xx
At his performance test, Purioso easily met the high expectations. For free jumping he received an 8, but under saddle he was even more impressive, which earned him a 9.
Purioso progeny are in one word phenomenal! Not for nothing does one consider Purioso the absolute progenitor of the nineties. He sired many excellent sport horses, such as for example Henderson Gammon (winner of, amongst other competitions, the Calgary Grand Prix), Olympic Wendela (winner of the Grand Prix of Italy at Pavarotti's), Baiderdash, Lavender Blue (winner of the 6-yr-old competition), Olympic Ambush, Condor, Werner BJ and Vashkar. In addition, his approved son Olympic Cocktail stepped into the limelight with Anky van Grunsven, taking away a second in the Kur on Music at the 1993 Aachen CHIC, amongst other feats. Besides Cocktail, Purioso's sons Bentley, Cantor, Faido (Champion Showjumper of the National Stallion Competition for 4yr-olds) and Prince Paradiso have been approved. Latter two stallions have had equally impressive sport careers, and it is no surprise, therefore, that Purioso, awarded the predicate 'keur', holds a high place in both the dressage and jumping index. No less than five of the progeny of this fertile stallion were nominated for the Barcelona Olympics.
