Verden: Five young stallions awarded Weltmeyer- and Stakkato-Prizes
On occasion of the stallion show of the club of private Hanoverian stallion owners, the Hannoveraner Verband awarded the Weltmeyer- and Stakkato-Prizes. The prizes were given to stallions, which passed their performance tests last year with the best results of their age-groups.
The Weltmeyer-Prize was given to two young stallions with dressage pedigrees. With top scores for his temperament and rideability, the son of Londontime/San Remo, Libertad (b.: Mona Diekmeier, Warmsen; o.: Ingo Pape, Hemmoor) completed his 50-day-test at Schlieckau. The black, whom Ingo Pape had discovered at the stallion market in Verden, lead his age-group with a final score of 9.03. Emilio Sanchez by Estobar NRW/Don Crusador (b.: Hinrich Engelke, Dörverden; o.: Lower Saxony state stud, Celle) had passed his 50-day-test with emphasis on dressage at Neustadt/Dosse with a final score of 8.58. The bay descends from the dam line of World Cup winner Walk on Top and will be available to breeders at the state stud Celle.
Three future producers of jumpers received the Stakkato-Prize. With Stakkato Boy RM a son of the eponym was given the award. The dark bay, bred out of a dam by Lord Pezi (b.: Dr. Karl Raupach, Ankum; o.: Syndikat Rhein-Maas E.E.S.V, Sambeek/Netherlands) achieved top scores at his 50-day-test at Adelheidsdorf and finished it with a final score of 8.88. The four-year-old will be available to breeders at Ferienhof Stücker, Weeze. One year his senior is Diamant de Plaisir by Diamant de Semilly/For Pleasure (b. a. o.: Gerd Sosath, Lemwerder).
Last summer he celebrated his win at the Hanoverian Championships of four-year-olds and showed his talent again at his stallion performance test at Adelheidsdorf with a final result of 8.60. At the stallion licensing in December, the son of Balou du Rouet/Perigueux, Bilbao City (b.: Pferdezucht Dr. Jacobs GbR, Bierberdgen; o.: Lower Saxony state stud, Celle) was an eye-catcher. He passed his 50-day-test at Marbach with a final score of 8.64 and provided his breeders, the family Jacobs, with their third Stakkato-Prize.
