Cristallina is a straightforward horse who inherited her scope and the use of her back from her father Cadence van ‘t Gelutt. She is issued out of the first crop of Cadence and comes out of a good family. Her granddam Taluta is the sister to the international Trudo Janique (Fantastique) and Willem van ‘t Janshof (Flamenco de Semilly) who claimed numerous wins with Gregory Wathelet. For many years Trudo Janique was the faithful partner of Ludo Philippaerts. The pair won in Madrid, Barcelona, Oslo and Paris. The riders of Auction International Aalst praise Cristalina for her cooperative nature and honest character.
