Ocordo, a Dutch Warmblood, was a son of the matchless Olympic Concorde (Jos Lansink) and came from a mother who was the full sister of Carrera La Silla, an outstanding international competitor who won the Grand Prix at Aachen and participated in several Nations Cup events.
Ocordo, a talented jumper in the prime of his life and on an upward career track, left this world too soon and will be deeply missed by our staff, his longtime rider Erin Davis Walsh, and all of his admirers. His true greatness lives on in the foal crops he left with us and the hope they carry forward into the future. Ocordo is by the outstanding sire Olympic Concorde, who, guided by Jos Lansink, won the Grand Prix at Aachen and the Dutch National Championships, among many other successes. Concorde is himself by in incomparable Voltaire, one of the highest ranking sires among sporthorses worldwide for the past decade.
Ocordo’s dam, Katosca, is a full sister to another Aachen winner, Osta Carpets Carrera, who is today owned by the studbook La Silla. Great jumping genetics combine in Ocordo, a beautiful and capable stallion of enormous personality and charisma.
Imported as a six year old and brought up carefully through the levels, Ocordo began showing in Grand Prix and international competitions in the last several years. He exhibits great interest in his work, careful and bold on course, and demonstrates his tremendous scope in the most difficult of combinations. He offers a pedigree crammed with proven jumping abilities backed up by very solid and serious show records among many family members, a resume to be seriously considered for those looking to produce highly competitive prospects.
Since his importation, Ocordo has competed in venues across the United States, competing on tough courses among some of the most accomplished horse and rider combinations in the country. His star is on the rise and we are really enjoying the ride! 2008 7th Place, Pin Oak Charity Grand Prix, Houston, Texas 7th Place, Grand Prix of the Southwest, Houston, Texas 6th Place, EMO Jumper Classic, Houston, Texas 8th Place, Blue Ribbon, Grand Prix, Waco Texas 10th Place, Nordic Lights Farm Grand Prix, Houston, Texas 2007 4th Place, Level 7, Frostbite Jumper Classic, Glen Rose, Texas 6th Place, Level 8, Lexington, Kentucky 9th Place, FEI Jack Daniels Grand Prix, Denver, Colorado 9th Place, Level 7, Lexington, Kentucky 10th Place, Gamblers Choice Open Stake, Denver, Colorado 2006 1st Place, Level 7, Parker, Colorado 2nd Place, Level 7, Parker, Colorado 2nd Place, Level 6, Santa Fe, New Mexico 2nd Place, Level 6, Parker, Colorado 3rd Place, Level 7, October Hill Farm Grand Prix, Texas 3rd Place, Level 6, Glen Rose, Texas 5th Place, Bienvenida World Cup qualifier, Monterrey, Mexico 5th Place, Level 7, Lexington, Kentucky 8th Place, Level 9, Parker, Colorado 9th Place, World Cup Qualifier, Monterrey, Mexico 11th Place, Level 8, Grand Prix de Santa Fe, New Mexico 2005 1st Place, Level 8, Del Mar, California 2nd Place, JetSource WCAR Prix de Nations, Del Mar, California 2nd Place, Level 8, San Juan Capistrano, California 2nd Place, Level 7, Del Mar, California 3rd Place, Level 7, Del Mar, California 3rd Place, Level 7, Parker, Colorado 6th Place, Level 8, Wellington, Florida 7th Place, Tulsa Grand Prix, Oklahoma 8th Place, Level 7, Texas Showcase Grand Prix, Glen Rose, Texas 2004 2nd Place, Level 6, Houston, Texas 4th Place, Level 5, Wellington, Florida 5th Place, Level 8, Wellington, Florida
Ocordo has produced several foal crops and has become increasingly popular as a sire for attractive, beautiful individuals with the skills required to be competitive showing prospects. While all the offspring are beautifully marked and exhibit exceedingly nice type, they are also very athletic and elastic in their carriage and movement. The older foals which we have free jumped show the intelligence and care for the work that Ocordo himself exhibits. We expect great things from these youngsters and look forward to seeing more of them headed to the arena. Ocordo is a good cross for mares who need improvement in the topline and in overall type. He improves gait quality as well, especially in the canter. Breeders should consider using mares with some Thoroughbred in the second or third generation. Ocordo is actively competing and will be available only during the standard breeding season dates, as published by October Hill Farm. Within that time period, however, he will be showing locally. October Hill Farm will endeavor to accommodate all mare owners during this period but encourages adequate lead time for optimal scheduling and shipping of orders.
