In 2016, Bentley is ranked first in the sire rankings on HorseTelex of his age group (IPV ranking), so you can call him one of the world's best stallions. Like Cornet Obolensky, Bentley’s breeding includes the winning combination of Clinton x Heartbreaker. His motherline is one of the most prestigious in Belgium and resulted in well-known jumpers like Utrillo vd Heffinck, Upsilon vd Heffinck, Uzi, Conrad de la Vie Z etc. His dam Souvenir was victorious with Wilm Vermeir at GP level and his granddam Kinette produced the outstanding Quel Homme vd Heffinck (German champion in showjumping with René Tebbel).
Bentley has been retired after a sport career at 1m50 level with several riders (Guy Williams, Harrie Smolders, Wilm Vermeir) to be a successful sire. He is already the sire of the French 5 and 6yo champions, the Belgian 5, 6 and 7yo champions and many international showjumpers such as Fame van de Plataan (1,60m, Anne- Sophie Hemeryck Godart /FRA und Rik Hemeryck/BEL), Heartbreaker van de Achterhoe (1,60m, Piergiorgio Bucci /ITA), Guess (1,60m/Emanuele Gaudiano/ITA), Gentley (1,60m, Filip de Wandel/BEL), Giorgio van't Hagenhof (1,60m, Quentin Judge/USA), Icarus v't Klavertje Vier (1,60m, Maelle Martin/FRA) und Sea Coast Ideo d’O (1,60m/ Gudrun Patteet and Karel Cox/BEL).. Respect at the jump and super mentality are deeply embedded in his genes. His offspring is awarded for strong back, impressive impulsion behind and perfect foreleg technique.
