He was born May 26, 2017 via embryo transfer and is pictured here with his surrogate mare.
His sire, Quaterback, is a stallion that seems like he could only come from another planet - with his light-footed, brilliant movement and perfect cadence, all eyes become riveted on Quaterback when he appears. He was the radiant Bundeschampion of the three year old riding horses in 2006 with the highest scores for his trot and canter. The test riders in Warendorf even gave him this dream score of 10.0. Prior to this test, he had won several tests for young riding horses. He was also the winner of his 30-day test with a final score of 9.14 in dressage, an 8.43 for jumping and an overall score of 8.88. As if it were not enough to have unbelievably dynamic movement, he was also blessed with an outstanding type. Quaterback comes from one of the most successful mare lines of modern day. His dam Passionata is a half-sister of the unforgettable World Champion and double Bundeschampion, Poetin. Her full brothers Samba Hit I to IV put on convincing presentations at the Bundeschampionate. Samba Hit I was also a finalist in the 2006 Nürnberg Burgpokal and the sire of Samba's Diamond who became the Champion Stallion of the licensing in Berlin-Brandenburg and Sachsen-Anhalt that same year.
His dam, Bonne Chance is a lovely chestnut filly out of Doppler Shift and by Belissimo M. Chance shows a fantastic walk with terrific elasticity, a great reaching canter with a wonderful stride length and a balanced, uphill trot with round knees to spare. She is extremely personable with a desire to please and loves working with her people! She is modern and feminine, with three good gaits, and a premium foal with the Oldenburg GOV.
