Paaskamp’s Princenhage represents no less than eight generations in the Netherlands. This line started in the Netherlands with the mare Weston Gay Lady, a top horse of her time, coupled to Royal Welsh champion and known in the motherland as a foundation stallion, Bowdler Brewer. For those eight Dutch generations, there are still 9 generations in the mother country, so Princenhage comes from a long-bred line and one of the most appreciated dam lines, that of Lady White/Lady Starlight. We then continue with stallions known in the Netherlands such as Blaenau Chelsea Fan, Winkeldorp’s King (Dyoll Starlight cup winner 1993), Rowfant Saul (best three-year-old 1983) and then come to the mare Patricia, grandmother of Princenhage. Patricia was bred to Knodishall Geraint, a stallion who has had a strong influence on Dutch breeding in a few breeding seasons. Knodishall Gwillym and Geraint are ¾ brothers, both by Pendock Legend out of a daughter of Knodishall Miracle. Paaskamp’s Paola was the result of this combination and, just like her mother, became ‘keur’. An achievement that unfortunately occurs too little in section A, two generations of ‘keur’ mares in a row. Princenhage is the first studbook son of Ysselvliedt’s Special Edition, who, just like Pendock Legend, is a son of Revel Jeeves, which results in a nice piece of line breeding.
