The bay Holsteiner sire Sandro is well-established in Oldenburg and is very influential in breeding type and appearance. He was an international show jumper under Franke Sloothaak and he passes on his outstanding ability to his progeny. Goldkatze is by Gepard who thoroughly influenced the Schockemohle broodmare band. Mated with the same stallion she produced the full brother Silvio 11 who passed his stallion performance test in Medingen scoring the highest index for jumping in 1994. Silvio 1 & 11 are descendants of the esteemed Oldenburger line of Rodenande. Rhodendenron mated with Palermo produced the vice-champion of 1987, PS Palm Springs, who was sold at the PSI auction for top price and later became an advanced class show jumper.
In 1990 Silvio 1 passed his performance test where he scored especially well in his jumping ability. In 1991 he won the Ib main premium of the Oldenburger breed society. From his first crop Silvio 1 produced top foals: three of his foals were the top priced lots of the Dammer Mai Sales in 1992 and at the PSI auction the filly Stars and Stripes was the top-priced foal of all times. In 1993 Siegertyp was sold in Vechta for DM20,000.00 as well as Sternstunde DM 30,000.00. At the 1995 Oldenburg stallion approval he presented the vice-champion Sir Lui, premium stallion Sesostres, as well as Sinatra Gold. In 1996 likewise he produced a harvest, his daughter Tettina was overall champion of the European Mare Championships in Brussels. She is only one of many daughters with state premium. Sir Lui was vice-champion of the Redefin performance test and at the Oldenburg approval he triumphed again with Sir Holtrup and Sergeant Pepper who were awarded the breeding license and both were respectively winners of their stallion performance test. Sergeant Pepper was state riding horse champion and highly placed federal championship finalist both in 1997 and 1998. In 1998 he was awarded the I-a main premium.
