The rising 5-year olds In Style and Imposantos, the rising 6-year old Total U.S. and the rising 7-year old Giovanni won the third and final qualification leg of the KWPN Stallion Competition circuit held in Zuidbroek, The Netherlands, on 2 January 2018. The classes were judged by Monique Peutz and Gert van den Hoorn.
At L-level two stallions shared the victory with 85 points: In Style and Imposantos. Renate van Vliet steered Joop van Uytert's In Style (by Eye Catcher x Lorentin) to a winning score earning 8,5 for his gaits, rideability and potential. Van Vliet trains her horses with Diederik van Silfhout and Edward Gal. Bart Veeze and the black Imposantos (by Wynton x Krack C) finished on the same point total. Diederik van Silfhout and Paul Schockemohle's Oldenburg bred Furst Jazz (by Furst Romancier x Painted Black) landed third place with 84 points. The winner of the second leg, Indian Rock (by UB40) was absent from the third qualifier.
At M-level division for 5 year olds who just turned 6 as of 2018, Dinja van Liere dominated the pack aboard Paul Schockemohle and Joop van Uytert's German bred Total U.S (by Totilas x Sir Donnerhall). She scored 90 points for the victory. The black stallion scored 9 for walk, harmony and potential. The trot earned 9.5. Adelinde Cornelissen and the Gelderlander bred Henkie (by Alexandro P x Upperville) were the runners-up with 86 points.
Only two horses have been competed in the Z-level division. In Zuidbroek the winner of the first leg was back on top: Franka Loos on Giovanni (by Chippendale x Scandic). They scored 82 points and were just a fraction ahead of Dana van Lierop on Gunner KS (by Belissimo M x Vincent) with 81 points.
