Date of Birth: 04/11/2001
Owner: Mr. C. Kock
Both german top horses at the world equestrian festival in Aachen 2006 were out of the SANDRO /Gepard line!!
Shutterfly by Silvio in jumping, and Satchmo by Sao Paulo in dressage!
One of the few lines, which produce horses for jumping and dressage in the same quality!
This is underlined by “Sandro Boy” (Markus Ehning), by Sandro and by “Sundance” (Franke Sloothaak) by Sandro Song in jumping, and by the most exciting dressage stallion “Sandro Hit” by Sandro Song. Sandro Song is the grandsire of Shogun.
His dam, the premium mare “Locarno Loretta’ had herself the potential of an international horse, and got excellent marks for jumping and movement. She is by “Rabino”, a son of “Ramiro”, a century – stallion, and sire of international horses like Olympic silver medal winner “Ratina”, “Royal Bravour” and “Ninette”. Calypso II by Cor de la Bryere is the sire of “Contender”, sire of “Checkmate”, ”Collin”, “Montender” and other international horses. In 3rd generation we find “Lord” (Holstein), sire of international horses in jumping (Livius) and dressage (Larius). He was for many years in the top rankings of international jumping and dressage! “Shogun” comes out of one of the best dam lines in Europe, Holstein line 474a.,which produced stallions like “Calato” (sire in European Champion “Coester” and others), N-Aldato in the Netherlands, “Royal Cavalier” in Ireland (Nr. 9 in world jumping ranking 2006),Loxgraf Go in the USA.
Shogun stands at 1.72m and combines type, good movement and unlimited scope and excellent technique in jumping. (Marks with licensing: walk 8.5,trot 7.5,canter 8.0,jumping ability 8.5,technique 7.5) He has a very good temperament, and offered flying changes after being for a few weeks under the saddle. His foals are noble, dominantly in his dark bay colour, with good movements and promising jump.
