Grannex (Frozen semen only)
16.22 hh, 1991, Bay, 9 ins bone. AES/SHB
Owners: Mr & Mrs E. Bleekman
GRANNEX was one of the British sires we see all the time in the results! He has produced two National Event Champions to date and many excellent Jumpers – what more is there to come?
Since winning the style prize at the AES National Stallion Show as a 5 year old, GRANNEX jumped successfully up to International level with Ben Dunning and on the County Show Circuit with Stephen Williams.
GRANNEX’s pedigree – if you were to list and picture all his Olympic/World European Medallist relatives you would fill a book!
ANNA-TEVKA his dam lived up to her superb breeding, only jumping for a few years when having a break from breeding and jumped to Grade A with Dirk Hafemeister.
GRANNUS and LANDGRAF the sire and grandsire of GRANNEX are two of the all time great stallions of the Show Jumping world. With RAMIRO Z, sire of RATINA, Olympic Gold and Silver medal winner, also in GRANNEX’s damline he has three of the worlds greatest four stallions in his pedigree.
GRANNEX’s offspring are quite exceptional. Many are show jumping and making their way impressively up the top of the ranks including BARONS GRAPHITE who is one of the South West's top Grade A’s.

In eventing Gerry and David Mills' GRANNTEVKA PRINCE has to be the star GRANNEX son with rider Lucy Weigersma. In 2006 they won the Pavo National 6 year old Championships and the Intermediate at Gatcombe. Lucy was quoted as saying "This is definately a horse with a big future !" A statement he has lived up to. They went on to 2nd at Burnham Market *** and 11th at Barroca ***, and finished 2009 with a win at Blenheim CCI*** and a great fourth at Pau CCI****. In 2010 they were 3rd in the Advanced Intermediate at Belton, 13th in the World Cup qualifier at Chatsworth, 4th in the Tattersalls World Cup qualifier and 9th at Luhmuhlen in the CCI****. After many more good results they were knocking at the door of selection for the London Olympics and completed 2012 with an excellent run at Burghley CCI****. PRINCE joined Team Bleekman in 2014 and won the Irish National Junior Championships at Tattersalls and placed 10th in the Junior European Championships with his new rider Janou.
Other successful GRANNEX offspring eventing have been ELLFIELD APRIL JOY, LEACOURT TOUCH AND GO, LITTLE BOSS, GRANADOR, DELPHY'S CHARLIE BROWN, WHATA PERK, BLUE RIVER II, GRANITE LADY, DUKE OF AXBRIDGE , GRANNTEVKA PRINCESS – the GRANNEX name still features heavily in the event programmes and many of our top riders have ridden his offspring - William Fox-Pitt, Oliver Townend, Georgie Davies, Jade Lazenby, Lucy Weigersma, Jade Halim, Janine Jansen – and more keep appearing!
Grannex has been, and is still being used by Britain's top owners and breeders – with the change to short format, a true ‘Jumper’ who throws quality and movement is what we want. GRANNEX is available for frozen semen worldwide. Collected and frozen by the leading centre in Belgium, the quality of his frozen semen is exceptional; which is not altogether a surprise as his chilled semen, with a morphologic normality of 97%, was declared outstanding by numerous veterinary centres specialising in Artificial Insemination. We are not aware of a single chestnut GRANNEX foal - they have all been bay with the exception of a few greys.
