About Nelson

All the scope, sired by CSI5* stallion Grand Slam VDL

Ridden by Marlon Modolo Zanotelli, Grand Slam VDL made his breakthrough at the very highest level in 2021. The Cardento x Heartbreaker stallion made a huge impression by jumping clear in the FEI Nations Cup Final in Barcelona, finishing 6th in the GCT of Valkenswaard and securing top 5 finishes at CSI5* shows like Stockholm City and ‘s-Hertogenbosch. The grey gelding Nelson is a son of the highly talented Grand Slam VDL and shows tremendous scope. No jump seems to be too big for this diamond in the rough. His grandsire Up To Date has been a successful breeding stallion as well, producing Grand Prix showjumpers Cosun, Bokai, Campari and Dimitri.
