"TWO-TIME OLYMPIC CHAMPION SAPPHIRE’S DAMLINE"
Chin Chin is one of the few stallions to have competed in two Olympics (Seoul and Barcelona), finishing 6th in the individual event, and then placed in two World Cup finals with his Mexican rider.
He is the sire of some of the best mare lines currently in the market, such as Querly Chin (Querly Chin - de Muze line) or Ta Belle van Sombeke (dam of Glock's London and Taran de la Pomme). His daughter Usha van't Roosakker’s lines is currently one of the most popular mare lines at online embryo auctions.
He is also the sire of BWP Ambassador Phin Phin and one of the most popular stallions at VDL, Arezzo.
Chin Chin van de Eijkhof's dam's sire is Darco, who was also a participant and runner-up at the Barcelona Olympics. A World Cup finalist and World Champion who led the world rankings for five years among breeding stallions and is still in the top 50. His best known offspring are Parco and Otterongo, Winningmood and Mclain Ward's star filly, Sapphire. Sapphire's name is also linked to her pedigree in another way, as Eijkhof's great-granddam is the BWP mare of the year Idjaz-C, whose nine(!) offspring have reached Grand Prix level, including the two-time Olympic champion, Sapphire. Several progeny by the young stallion's dam Nevada van't Merelsnest have been sold at elite auctions, including Chin Chin van de Eijhof's dam sister Eldorado van de Zeshoek, who was the most expensive foal at the 2020 Westphalian foal auction. Also voted Breeder of the Year, Van' Merelnest's broodmare line has resulted in several international stallions, including the most famous Glasgow-W vh Merelsnest, Nations Cup winner, winner of the World Cup in Helsinki and the impressive Grand Prix in Rome with Jur Vrieling.
