The stallion inspection committee jumping has nominated the Grand Prix stallion Funky Fred Marienshof Z  for recognition. The board has formalized these recognitions.

Funky Fred Marienshof Z
The 10-year-old Funky Fred Marienshof Z (Fantomas de Muze x Libero H), ridden by Lars Kersten, has demonstrated his capabilities at the Grand Prix level in recent months. The duo secured third place in the World Cup competition at Jumping Amsterdam, an impressive fifth place in the Grand Prix of Gothenburg, and another fifth place in Den Bosch during the Dutch Masters at 1.55m level. Kersten and Funky Fred also placed fifth at the Dutch National Jumping Championships in Deurne last weekend.

Funky Fred's sire, Fantomas de Muze, a son of the Grand Prix stallion Sandro Boy, competed at the highest level under Karline de Brabander-Vereecke and Koen Vereecke. Fantomas de Muze's dam is the well-known mare Cordula de Laubry (by For Pleasure), highly ranked on the Hippomundo mare ranking. Funky Fred's dam is the mare Marien, who jumped at 1.50m level. She is a daughter of the preferent World Cup winner Libero H. Aside from her sports career, Marien produced the 1.60m showjumper Dundee v/h Marienshof and the international showjumpers Calorie v/h Marienshof (by Clinton), Nabarien Marienshof (by Nabab de Reve), and Be Marien v/h Marenshof (by Bamako de Muze).
