Hall of Fame

The Hall of Fame-MoM’s have ended their career as a MoM and are no longer available to breeders.

During their well-deserved retirement they either enjoy the all-day grazing on the vast pastures of our Mares of Macha farm, Borgo la Caccia, or they go back to their ‘home’ stable where they are eagerly awaited by their former owner/rider to spend their old age.

Contara was a respected international performer under André Plath, but Contara has really made a name for herself as the dam to the undisputed world leading sire, Chacco-Blue. Chacco-Blue was a phenomenal showjumper himself, most-notably coming 3rd in the CSIO Aachen Grand Prix.

Today, Contara grazes on the fields of our Mares of Macha farm, Borgo la Caccia in Italy. There, she is enjoying her old age in the company of her regular MoM group and embraced by the best care of our Borgo team.

Molly Malone

Molly Malone and Bertram Allen won the CSIO 5* Grand Prix of Lummen in 2014, two days earlier the pair ended 3rd in the Nations Cup, jumping clear and 4. It was their first ever CSIO 5* Nations Cup, only their 2nd 5* Grand Prix. A month later they would finish 4th in the Rotterdam Grand Prix, 2 months later, in their home country they won the holy grail for Irish riders, winning the CSIO 5* Grand Prix in Dublin.

Their successful career would last nearly 7 years on the international level and she would jump the WEG in Normandy, the Europeans in Aachen and the World Cup Finals in Las Vegas. She would place in 29 Grand Prix, winning 5 of them, 3 at 5* level.

After a successful partnership, Molly has returned to her owners to continue her well-deserved retirement.


Oceane de Nantuel

She won 15 international classes with Titouan Schumacher and Pedro Veniss. At the famous farm of the Hécart family Oceane gave 3 foals and all 3 are Black-Type performers. The eldest, Uthope de la Roque was successful at 1.50m with Patrice Delaveau and outperformed his dam by winning 19 international classes. The youngest is Atlantic de la Roque who racked up 13 wins with Jacques Helmlinger so far. Last but not least, Viceversa de la Roque, a front-runner in 1.60m classes with Alberto Zorzi.

In early January 2023, at the age of 21, Oceane returned to her home port, Zangersheide Stud farm in Belgium. At the Zangersheide pastures, she will spend her well-deserved retirement after an amazing career as a sport horse & MoM.

Magie 1_Nieuw

Magie de Menardiere

The French-bred Magie de Menardiere was the French national champion of 5 year old horses at Le Grand Parquet in Fontainebleau. No one could predict that Magie would turn out to be a magical broodmare. Her second son is Queensland E, he won the Queens Cup in Madrid and the Maastricht 4* Grand Prix with Frank Schuttert. He then went on to compete with Dani G. Waldman, winning the Deeridge 5* Grand Prix in the USA. Magie’s 3rd offspring is Winnetou de la Hamente Z. With the Swedish Evelina Tovek, Winnetou won the Global Champions League in Monaco.

After her last life phase, in which one offered her all the peace she deserved at Borgo la Caccia, Magie passed away in September 2022. We keep the best memories of this beautiful MoM and believe that her fantastic offspring in the sport, on today and in the future, will keep the beautiful thought of Magie alive forever.


Prima Donna van 't Paradijs

Prima Donna van ’t Paradijs her story seems to be eternal. A successful international performer herself she competed with Pedro Veniss and Jose Antonio Chedraui.

It was her third crop that struck gold. Ultra-Top van ’t Paradijs, by Heartbreaker, was not only an eye-catcher because of his spectacular jumping, he also delivered as he progressed to World Cup level. Venezia d’Ecaussines was next to follow. A sister of Prima Donna gave the Spruce Meadows Nations Cup winner of 2019, Jeunesse with Yves Vanderhasselt.

After her career as MoM, Prima Donna returned to her former home, the land estate of Luc Henry in the Walloon part of Belgium. Surrounded by lots of love and the best care of Luc himself, she is enjoying her well-deserved retirement there.



In Donatella-N, MoM presented a genuine World Cup winner. The mare by Vigo d’Arsouilles won the World Cup of Gothenburg, beating Plot Blue, H&M Tornesch, Casello and VDL Groep Sapphire B in the jump-off!

After 2 years of grazing as a MoM on the Borgo la Caccia estate, Donatella set course back to Belgium where she was eagerly awaited by the Philippaerts family to spend her old age at their family domain in Oudsbergen.
