Yesterday the death of legendary dressage sire De Niro was announced and today it hit the show-jumping community: Clinton by Corrado I/Massetto has died. The grey Holsteiner died at age 24 due to his age. Clinton and Dirk Demeersman (BEL) were part of the team for the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens and won the Grand Prix in Lummen. They were placed second in the Grand Prix of the CHIO Aachen.
Clinton had a worldwide reputation as excellent sire: he has more than 50 licensed sons, among them Eldorado van de Zeshoek TN, Zacharov TN, Whitaker, and the most famous Cornet Obolensky
