Be Express*HDC

Be Express*HDC, ideal genetics.
Son of the crack Orient Express*HDC, individual and team World Vice-Champion, and Over Speed du Plessis, granddaughter of the famous Bourrée.
He is also the full brother of Call Me Express*HDC, ISO 152, CSI4* with Reynald Angot. His young production seems to be living up to all its promises. Be Express*HDC passes on to his foals the strength and mentality of his sire, combined with the blood of his dam.



Selle Français stallion, ORIENT EXPRESS * HDC has an exceptional pedigree.

Son of QUICK STAR who, from his height of 1.59m, achieved a brilliant sporting career. Under the saddle of Nick Skelton first, then Meredith Michaels Beerbaum, the little horse accumulated more than €500,000 in earnings. Among his most beautiful victories let us recall that of Maastricht in 1992 and Mannheim in 1993. In his second career as a stallion, the son of GALOUBET A was approved in more than 20 different studbooks and boasts many world-famous offspring to date, including BIG STAR, Olympic Team Champion in London in 2012 and individually in Rio in 2016 with Nick Skelton; SPREHE STELLA, European Team Champion at Hickstead in 1999 with Meredith Michaels Beerbaum; QUICK STUDY, ridden by Lauren Hough and ranked 25th global performer in 2011,  etc.

KAMTCHATKA, dam of ORIENT EXPRESS*HDC, is a daughter of LE TOT DE SEMILLY (ISO 177), the sire of many CSI5* winners headed by World champion DIAMANT DE SEMILLY and the great ITOT DU CHATEAU (ISO 197), winner at CSIO level with Edwina Tops Alexander.

His 2nd dam, LORIPIERRE (ISO 175) was an international winner and French champion with Gilles Bertran de Balanda.  She has also produced DOLLAR DELA PIERRE, a private stallion and CSIO winner with Reynald Angot, World Champion in team in 2002.

ORIENT EXPRESS*HDC has had an impeccable sporting career with almost a million euros in earnings. He was the 6YO Champion in France, PRO 1 French Champion and a brilliant CSI-W / CSIO winner under Patrice Delaveau, including in the Nations Cup final in Barcelona, winner of many CSI5* Grand Prix and World Vice-Champion in team as well as individually in 2014.
