A champion is gone.

Iron Man van de Padenborre, direct father of our most prominent stallion Illuminati out of Vigo d’Arsouilles has passed away today. We share our deepest condolences to their breeder André Leemans.

It was alongside Gregory Wathelet that Iron Man went to the highest level. Together they shone in CSI5*, on 1m55 classes. From victory to victory, his career finally ended as a sire. It is now the turn of his offspring to pay tribute to him over the bars.

We are lucky to have crossed the road of a champion who will remain engraved in our memories.
