Sandro Hit

Sandro Hit

Ser Gioveto's sire, Sandro Hit, is proving to be an extremely successful stallion, both in dressage competition and as a sire of numerous top foals. In 1999 he became Six-Year-Old Dressage Horse World Champion, and the winner at the German Federal Championships in Warendorf. "Best Young Stallion of 2000" is just one of the titles he won that year. As many as 10 licensed sons came out of his FIRST FOAL CROP, and his daughter, Poetin 2, was the winner of the three-year-old mare and gelding section at the German Federal Championships in 2000. In 2001, five of the TOP 10 foals in Germany were by Sandro Hit.

Ulf Möller on Sandro Hit:

“I think he is really a revolution in the breeding. An absolutely new bloodline – he has more that 65 sons now. Maybe Weltmeyer did this, but no other stallion.”

What qualities does Sandro Hit give his young stock?

“He is really stamping his offspring. He is producing uphill horses, producing pretty horses, even with some ugly mares. He gives his color, and he gives outstanding rideability, and he gives something that is difficult to say in words, he makes proud horses. This is what is important – but it also gives a responsibility to the rider that he understands this proudness, and don’t try and press this proudness out. The rider must allow this pride to come out of the horse – maybe it was a bit the same with him at the stallion test, they pressed him and I let him live."

What mare lines does he cross on?

“That is the really good thing with Sandro Hit, we have outstanding offspring from Donnerhall mares, from Rubinstein, from Weltmeyer, from Brentano, from Holstein bloodlines, like Calypso. This is what makes Sandro super super interesting because this is a line that fits all the prominent lines, so now you have a new choice.”

Sandro Song

Sandro Song is by the influential Oldenburg based, Holsteiner stallion, Sandro. Sandro competed in international show jumping competition with Franke Sloothaak. Sandro Song is out of Antenne II by Gepard, who left a lasting imprint on Paul Schockemöhle's mare band - Gepard was a son of the great sire of show jumpers, Gotthard. The grand-dam Antenne won numerous Grand Prix with George Ahlmann. Her sire, Adlerorden was a top jumping sire in Westfalia, siring stars like Argonaut 7 with Bernard Kamps.

Sandro Song is one of the few stallions to have been both Champion Oldenburg Junior Stallion as well as main premium winner. He himself competed in both dressage and show jumping to intermediate level.

SPS Loretta

Sandro Hit’s dam, Loretta has been an excellent stallion producer – bred to Don Schufro, she produced Diamond Hit who was Reserve World Champion Five Year Old Dressage horse and Bundeschampion in 2002; bred to the Rohdiamant son, Royal Dance, she produced Royal Hit, the 1-c premium stallion of the 2002 Oldenburg stallion licensing. Loretta is by Ramino, who was champion of his performance test at Adelheidsdorf in 1983.

Loretta’s dam, Lassie is by Welt As who was the sire of international showjumping star, Leroy Brown, and dressage star, Bonfire.

Ramino

Ramino stood in Oldenburg from 1983 to 1987, while at the same time competing in showjumping with Melanie Kötter. The pair won team gold at the European Junior Championship in 1987, before he joined up with the Italian rider, Loris Pujatti, again with international success.

Ramino has proven an exceptional sire of broodmares – he is the damsire of the jumping stallion, Gio Granno; the 1997 Oldenburg licensing winner, Ronaldo, and his full-brother, Rubin Star W, who won his stallion performance test and was a finalist at the Bundeschampionat; Sergeant Pepper, two time Bundeschampionat finalist is also out of a Ramino mare.

Bolero

Bolero

1975, 16.2 HANDS (Black Sky xx-Baronesse/Bleep xx)

Bolero (1979-1987) is a classic example of the refining influence the Thoroughbred has had on the modern Hanoverian. Although a three-quarter Thoroughbred himself, he retained the quality and movement of his Hanoverian ancestors. A very prepotent sire, Bolero stood at stud only nine years, yet sired numerous approved sons, States Premium mares, and top dressage horses. His line continually produces good shoulders and withers, modern toplines and elastic action.
