Significant Upholder of Famous Genes
He was reserve champion at his stallion licensing and best stallion in the 30 day test with top scores for the basic gaits and for rideability (9.13), but also convincing in jumping (8.25). After several first places in tests for young riding horses and the qualifier for the 2006’ Bundeschampionat, he passed, in a field of strong competitors, the 70 day test in Schlieckau where he excelled with the dressage index of 132.58 (rideability test 9.25!).
Also his inheritance meets the highest expectations: There are already several licensed sons on his account, in Verden in 2012, the eligible young stallion Fürstenhof (dam by Weltmeyer) was sold at 110,000 Euro to the State Stud community Celle, Redefin and Marbach; the full brother Fletcher was sold, at the same site, for the knock-down price of 90,000 Euro to the famous stud Blue Hors in Denmark.
Not for less than 60,000 Euro a two-year old not-licensed stallion by Fürst Grandios – Waterford was sold to Austria at the Oldenburg winter auction. Furthermore, there are several state premium mares from Hanover and North Rhine-Westphalia – as well as the 2009 champion mare of Bavaria and a vice champion mare in Austria. In addition, he produced winners of riding horse ability classes, numerous champion foals and high-priced elite auction candidates round out the picture. According to FN’s estimated breeding value statistics he has entered the top group of dressage sires with 131 points, thereto he can also refer to a balanced jumping index (102 points).
Fürst Grandios originates from the first crop of the famous Florestan son Fürst Heinrich, the 2003‘ world champion of young dressage horses in Verden, who was well-established in the German top group of dressage sires and is more actual then ever due to the Oldenburg double champion stallion and Bundeschampion of young dressage horses, Fürstenball. Meanwhile, his sons cause also in breeding a sensation, e.g. Fürstenball as sire of the 2012’ Oldenburg champion stallion Follow Me or Fürst Romancier as sire of the Oldenburg champion stallion in 2011, For Romance. Here, it’s an ideal mating with the sire legend Argentinus and the refinement and dressage sire Barsoi xx. Full brothers of the granddam are Condor Boccerini, successful up to Grand-Prix Special, as well as the private stallion Bajazzo.
