For Pleasure (1.60m) was not awarded horse of the century by mistake. His lifetime earnings in sport were in excess of €1.8 million. The remarkable stallion won four team gold medals for Germany, two at the Olympics and two at European Championships, and as for his offspring: Four of For Pleasure's offspring took home medals in show jumping at the 2016 Rio Olympics. The professionals of Team Scuderia SA long have wanted his foal from China Touch Hero! It's an added plus that the foal is a filly!
As a young horse, China Touch Hero already proved herself by winning the final for 6-year-old horses in Hardelot under the saddle of Jérome Guéry. She's also the mother of numerous horses of the highest level, such as CSI5* 1.60m level GCL contender Akarad Hero Z, Pieter Clemens’ current best horse, 1.50m level Jaguar de Tiji of Janika Sprunger and Espirit de la Roque. She is also dam of 1.45m Sea Coast Don’t Touch Tiji Hero, ridden by Olympian Aleksandr Onyshchenko. China Touch Hero is also granddam to the famous young horse and upcoming Zangersheide stallion, Dourkhan Hero Z (1.40m), as well as 8-years-old Inoui du Seigneur, who already competes up to 1.45m! With results like that, it is no wonder that a Balou du Reventon colt out of China Touch Hero was sold for €46.000 at Zangersheide Quality Auction of Foals.
