Pedigree Details

Sire:  Sarkozy   (Sandro Hit  -  Weltmeyer  -  Bogenschutze)

Current Vice Bundeschampion and Hannoverian Champion.


Sarkozy completed his 30-day test in Schlieckau with excellent results.  This noble stallion’s scores for walk, trot, canter, rideability and willingness were all outstanding, particularly the 9.5 which he received for walk.   Sarkozy led the field in the Bundeschampionat Final for four year-old stallions, scoring 9.5 for conformation and 9.0 for all basic paces.  The jet black stallion only missed out on the title by one point, finishing up as the celebrated Vice Champion.  This achievement came soon after Sarkozy's Riding Horse Championship win in Hanover, where he triumphed with a score of 9.08.

Sarkozy's pedigree is almost inspired because it combines the excellent genes of champion producer Sandro Hit with those of Weltmeyer, a stallion with millions of euro in competition winnings, and this is reflected in his extravagant movement.  It is rounded off by premium Hanoverian genes from Bolero and Lungau, producers of many successful Championship horses such as Beauvalais, Salinero and Brentina.  Sarkozy is a dynamic mover with a generous action through the shoulder that earned him top scores at his licensing test, where the commission judges awarded him an impressive 9.5 for his walk.  Sarkozy's first crop of foals are outstanding without exception and one of them was Reserve Champion at the German Foal Championship.

 

DamSire:  00 Seven    (Rubenstein 1  -  Doruto  -  Amor)

OO Seven was the highest ranked dressage horse ever at the stallion approvals in Holland:  Walk 8, Trot 9, Canter 9, General Dressage Score 9.  In 2005 his Dressage index was an impressive 204 - at that point the highest index ever in the KWPN studbook.  His sire is the well-known dressage stallion Rubinstein I, who has performed at Grand Prix level.  Rubinstein I has sired almost 70 approved breeding stallions.  OO7 was selected for the performance test at the 1999 KWPN stallion show in Den Bosch. He was described as a "Genetic dressage ace with an appealing type and light-footed movement with much impulsion, self carriage and balance.  Unique combination of bloodlines thanks to first rate sires such as Rubinstein I and Doruto, the world's best producer of dressage horses".

 

2nd DamSire:  Samber    (Pericles xx  -  Ordonnans  -  Romeo)

Samber is the only coloured stallion ever to be approved by the KWPN, where he gained high scores (including a '10' for character) in his performance test.  He is the sire of over 20 Approved stallions, and over a further 20 Approved grandsons.  Samber competed Grand Prix level in dressage and at Z level showjumping (equivalent to SJAI Grade A).
