ABOUT Silvio I

LICENSED: Oldenburg, Hanover, Hesse, Rhineland, Baden-Württemberg, Bavaria, Westphalia and Oldenburg-International. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ PEDIGREE: The homozygotically dark Holstein stallion Sandro B, Silvio I's sire managed to establish himself in Oldenburg within a very short time. He is a foundation sire of great forcefulness in terms of type and appearance. Himself an active international showjumper under Franke Sloothaak, he passed on his exceptional jumping ability to his progeny. The dam Gelbkatze is a daughter of the chestnut-stallion Gepard who has had a lasting influence on Paul Schockemolhle's herd of mares. Gepard was a son of the outstanding sire of showjumpers Gotthard. The same mating combination of Gelbkatze-Sandro B produced the full-brother Silvio II, who m 1993 absolved his stallion performance test in Medingen with the highest jumping index of the year. The grandam Rhododendron who derives from the fabulously handsome thoroughbred Ballboy xx was mated with Palermo, to produce the vice-champion of the year 1987, P.S. Palm Springs, who was sold at the PSI auction for an absolutely top price and later became an advanced class showjumper. Silvio I and II derive from the venerable Oldenburg damline of Rodenande, which i.a. also produced the approved stallions Going for Gold, Grannus-Grande and Weltstar. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ PERFORMANCE: Silvio 1 absolved his stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf in 1990, receiving particularly high scores for his jumping ability. He was awarded the I-b main premium by the Oldenburg Association in 1991. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ PROGENY: His first few crops of foals already produced absolutely top foals in series which frequently enriched the auction podium in Vechta. His first batch gave rise to the approved son Sunrise (Dillenburg state stallion). One of the climaxes of Silvio I's young siring career was the 1995 Oldenburg stallion approval, where he presented the vice-champion Sir Lui, an additional premium stallion Sesostres, as well as Sinatra Gold. 1996 likewise was a harvest year for Silvio I, whose daughter Tettina was overall champion of the European Mare Championships in Brussels. She is only one of the numerous daughters awarded the state premium. Sir Louis was vice-champion of the Redefin stallion performance test and he triumphed once more at the Oldenburg approval with Sir Holtrup and Sergeant Pepper who were awarded the breeding licence and landed in the premium lot. Both were respectively, the winners of their stallion performance test. Sergeant Pepper was state riding horse champion and a highly placed federal championship finalist both in 1997 and 1998. In 1998 he was awarded the I-a main premium. In the following years, further Silvio I sons received their breeding licences in Oldenburg, including the highly ranked premium stallion Sterntanzer, who won the 2000 stallion performance test in Neustadt/Dosse. In 2000, Silvio I was represented by two sons in Oldenburg once again, including Sergeant Pepper's full-brother, Spider Murphy and a premium stallion who is destined to go into the services of the HLG Neustadt/Dosse. The biggest success in 1999 was achieved by Sternstunde: Reserve champion of 6-year-old jumping horses at the FEI World Breeding Championships in Zangersheide. In 2001 it was Shutterfly who did credit to his sire. He took Meredith Michaels-Beerbaum to victory at the German Ladies Show Jumping Championship. Silvio is recognised for lifetime for the Hanoverian Jumping Horse Breeding Programme. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________ STUD MANAGERS RECOMMENDATIONS: Silvio is the most prominent representative of the "Sandro Dynasty" who is currently in great demand. He is known for passing on "type" qualities and natural performance abilities of a versatile nature. _______________________________________________________________________________________________________
