ES Toronto - Bay Dutch Warmblood Stallion - Now or Never (Voltaire) /Belisar

Sire of 2019 Foal by Lucynda *P* (Onassis/Condus)

From International Horse Breeders:

With the Dutch stallion Toronto the Celle State Stud could acquire a further jumping talent. The powerful bay stallion descends from the jumping horse producer Now or Never which is stationed at the insemination centre in Artland. Now or Never was acquired from Holland. His son Voltaire looks back on a long lasting career in international show jumping ridden by Jos Lansin. He was among the top jumpng horses at shows in Calgary, Stockholm, Lanaken, Helsinki, Wiesbaen and at the The Olympia in London. Voltaire obviously passed on his characteristic ability to perform to his offspring both in dressage and jumping. He is descended from the legendary Furioso 11 who like non before him influenced Germanys horse populations by producing offspring for enormously versatile and various purposes. The dam Imke is ‘elite’, and according to the dam report she is a very well developed riding type mare with lots of presence.

Now or Never was champion in s’Hertogenbosch in 1998. He is a stallion of great presence. He won the finals in the IAN trophy in the KWPN competition in the year 2000. In 2001 Now or Never gained 7th place. He was one of the 12 selected KWPN horses for the World Championships at Lanaken in 2001 and he won first place in the Stallion Competition 2000/2001 in Giesbeek. Now or Never proved himself at a sire by producing a multitude of uniform foals with very good riding type, good quality and outstanding presence. They had wonderful movement.

Also his dam line is very interesting. The sire of Toronto’s dam is Belisar by Saros xx which is full brother to Swazi xx the sire of the Trakehner stallion Consul. Meanwhile the young stallion has his first successes in jumping horse ability classes.

Toronto gained the following scores at his performance test; character 8, temperament 8, willingness to perform 8, conformation 8, trott 6.33, canter 8 walk 7.67, natural jumping ability 9, free jumping 8,83, jumping manner 9, jumping technique 8.67, cross country 10. He won the jumping phase of the test which could be expected because of his outstanding pedigree. He has one licensed son, 5 state premium mares, 16 auction horses.

FANTASTIC - 2010 Black Hanoverian Stallion - Furst Romancier/Sandro Hit

Information from Gestut-W.M.:

From the first moment on, Fantastic turned a lot of necks with his impressive appearance, lacquer-black in great elevation. Equipped with three first-rate gaits and an outstanding interior, he also presented himself on his 30-day test, where he scored points for his brilliant ride ability. This enormous rideability and his unshakeable mind made it possible, after multiple injury-related breaks to have a strong start without ifs and buts. After victories and placements in basic tests, he was able to qualify for the German Bundeschampionat at the age of six. But that's not all, last year Fantastic managed to win the first S-level dressage at the young age of 7 years. Great motivation and a high degree of dedication characterize the daily training with Fantastic, he fulfills all tasks set to him with ease and gives us thus daily much joy. He convinces on the one hand by his own sporting achievements (eg Bundeschampion and world champion of 6-year old dressage horses), on the other by his highly esteemed, unique sire performance (numerous federal champion, dressage world champion, several Licensing winner and descendants with World Cup successes or victorious in Grand Prix). In the third generation World Champion II is a reserve winner of the Oldenburg licensing, after two successful national championship participation he was successful under Dutch flag in dressage up to Intermédiaire I. Fantastic represents the Hanoverian mare family 1410 of Fionda. From this line countless, up to the heavy class highly successful sport horses of both disciplines result. In breeding terms, Fantastic managed to convince right away with his debut vintage, no doubt he presented participants of the German Foal Championships in Lienen, auction foals and winning foals in series. In addition, his offspring on the foal market are very sought after one or the other of his offspring has already switched to renowned stallion breeders and several of his offspring represented these valuable genes on the different Körplatz. Even under the saddle, the first of his descendants are already successfully on the road, quite the dad they like to decorate themselves with the yellow bow. Due to the unique impressions that we were able to collect from Fantastic ourselves and the successful offspring, we can offer you a guarantee for modern dressage horse breeding. Fantastic does not have a red factor and is therefore purist dark in his colour inheritance (no foxes) does not have a red factor and thus is pure dark in his inheritance.

FUERST ROUSSEAU - 2005 Black Hanoverian Stallion - 16.2

By Rousseau (Olympic Ferro/Roemer) out of SP Weltina (Weltmeyer/Grenadier)

Sire of Red Robin's 2018 foal

Fuerst Rousseau placed 3rd at Adelheidsdorf in 2008 with a dressage score of 138. He then went on to compete at FEI Young Riders in Switzerland, solidifying his place as not only a fantastic scoring young horse but also an FEI competitor with a temperament suitable for young riders.

From the Superior Equine Sires website: The noble black stallion and half brother to Dramatic (by Don Frederico), World Champion of five-year-old dressage horses in 2008, will be trained by Obersattelmeister Ole Köhler. The pedigree of Fürst Rousseau shows once again that a proven dam line chosen by an experienced breeder will produce the best breeding products: Fürst Rousseau completed not only a fantastic stallion performance test, his close relative Barclay (Belissimo M – Prestige Pilot – Grenadier, breeder: Wilhelm Klausing, Diepholz) was also awarded with highest scores, and he finished this test as winner. The dam line further down in the pedigree of both stallions goes back to state premium mare Geranie by Grenadier – Arsenik, and they descend from the family of Wolgarune by Wöhler, one of the best dam lines in Germany. The younger representatives of this line are also ready to start successful careers.
