After the Leon Melchior Open Zangersheide Sires of the World class his sport career was finished for Bisquet Balou C. The 13-year-old BWP stallion by Balou du Rouet from a Polydor mare was retired from the sport with fifth place in the stallion competition. In the future he will start his breeding career in France at Groupe France Elevage. Next year fresh semen will be available, also in Belgium.
Together with Nicola Philippaerts Bisquet Balou C was presented in Nations Cups and Top Grand Prix, but, so Ludo Philippaerts said in a press release, he never had been able to show his full potential in the sport. However, for breeding, so Philippaerts said, he could become important. The BWP stallion already has promising offspring and a son who is a licensed stallion.
