Many of his foals were placed high at the regional inspection and many were sold overseas already for record prices.
In 1999 he was in the equestrian press characterised as “The year of Jazz”. A foal by Jazz x Ariban was the winner at the Arnhem Championships. Eight of his sons were referred to Den Bosch for the 1998/99 stallion inspections. A Dutch Champion at the Pavo Cup was by Jazz (Jazz x Ulft).
