His looks, his power, his technique, his pedigree, Bacardi VDL is the perfect stallion. As a 7 year old, Lansink piloted the stallion to silver medal at the World Championships in Lanaken. From there, he moved to Janika Sprunger and that proved to be a match made in heaven. He won the Dubai World Cup, he was 2nd in the LGCT Doha Grand Prix, 3rd in the Rotterdam CSIO Grand Prix along with several other placings in major Grand Prix’s.

His spectacular way of jumping has always drawn large crowds ringside, impressed by his unlimited force, a fantastic foreleg and spectacular finish. His sharpness is also easy to spot in his offspring. The eldest have competed in their first 1.50m classes as 9 year olds in 2020. Goldenstar is already a Grand Prix winner under Alex Gill, as is Gerdinieke with John Perez. 

Bacardi is from a family of great showjumpers, with his dam Supardi by Kannan, producing great offspring. Bacardi’s full brother Olympic horse Apardi, ridden by Daniel Bluman, stood on the podium of the LGCT Grand Prix of Chantilly.
