Bloodlines

Sire Line

Sterling's sire SANSISCO, is truly a stately and refined stallion, who took his 30 day test in Prussendorf in 2005. For his gaits and rideability he scored 9.0 practically all of the time and the guest rider gave him a score of 9.75 for rideability. In 2006, once again in Prussendorf he won the 70 day test and also took first place in the dressage index as well as second place in the jumping index.

From 2005 to 2007 Sansisco won and placed in tests for young riding and dressage horses from novice (A) to medium (M). In 2007 he won 15 tests for young dressage horses (M, M/B and M/A) and qualified for the Bundeschampionat.

In 2008 he won more than 20 advanced (S) level dressage tests up to Intermediare I. He also placed in the Nürnberg Burgpokal in December 2008. In 2009 more than 40 advanced level victories were recorded and he again easily qualified for the Nürnberg Burgpokal Final.

This made Sansisco the most successful SANDRO HIT offspring for 2009 and after winning his first Grand Prix test in November of the same year, making 2010 his first Grand Prix year. He also received the VTV Dressage Stallion of the Year award in 2009 at the Oldenburg Hengsttgate. In 2010 Sancisco won and placed in many Grand Prix and Grand Prix special tests.

From 2006 to 2008 he sired the most Elite foals in Mecklenburg and numerous other premium foals in other breeding areas. Many of his foals won classes at the Kempke Hof Foal championships, with the greatest highlight of his stud career being when one of his sons became the Mecklenburg Champion Stallion 2009 and two other sons were also licensed. He clearly stamps his progeny with his good looks and athletic ability.

Sansisco's dam ROSENFEE is by ROHDIAMANT, the 1990 brown German Oldenburg stallion, who has a radiant presence and extravagant movement. Rohdiamant's dam ELEKITA's pedigree contains a successful Oldenburg line that has more than 70 years of success. Rohdiamant's sire, RUBINSTEIN I, has been described as the "Sire of the Century." Rohdiamant has had a distinguished career, winning the Oldenburg stallion approval in 1992 and then in 1993, earning the Reserve Champion title of his 100 Day Test with a phenomenal dressage index of 150 points.
