Better than ever: Sandro Hit has started a new era in the dressage scene and is already writing sporting and breeding history
Our number one: National Young Horse Champion — Young Dressage World Champion — unique producer performance
Sandro Hit progeny are breaking all price-records, are annually winning championships and are Approval Champions
His first offspring are already successful at World Cup level

From the 2006 Oldenburger premium lot alone, our “number one” was completely dominant with four direct sons reaching top prices of € 450.000 and two further nephews, one of them the champion stallion. His unique performance as a producer is demonstrated once again with two highly scored national champions, putting the number of championship title-holders which he has produced up to seven. Silberaster was also distinguished as Oldenburger champion mare, Sir Donnerhall was reserve champion. The Sandro Hit son Salieri has been triumphant at World Cup level with Victoria Max-Theurer. Besides that he has produced an armada of highly successful up and coming successful young horses.
Himself a national champion and world champion, Sandro Hit is out of the brilliant elite brood mare Loretta, she produced the Reserve World Champion and Reserve German Young Horse Champion Diamond Hit and the highly elegant 1c premium stallion Royal Hit. Her sire Ramino was Stallion Performance Test Champion and later on five times Italian Champion. Welt As from the third generation is one of the most influential producers over the last years, amongst others he sired Olympic gold medallist Bonfire ridden by Anky van Grunsven.

Sandro Hit is as beautiful as an English engraving, a genial feather-light movement with brilliant results as a producer. He has yet to meet his match.

The Oldenburg juvenile stallion and main premium winner Sandro Song had his debut in 1995 with his first two sons Sandro Hit and Securus at an Oldenburg approval where they both gained their approval. In the meantime, Sandro Song has presented further approval progeny. The dam Loretta was mated with Don Schufro to produce the premièred stallion son Diamond Hit. The damsire Ramino was champion of the 1983 stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf. He was on active stud duty in Cappeln from 1983 to 1987 whilst at the same time maintaining an impressive showjumping career with Melanie Koetter. He won the Junior European Championships team gold with the “amazon” in 1987, before really outing himself internationally with Loris Pujatti under the Italian flag. Between 1989 and 1995 he was Italian champion five times. Ramino has preponderantly developed to a damsire of excellent mares and stallions. The powerful jumping stallion Gio Granno, the 1997 approval winner Ronaldo, his full-brother the stallion performance test winner and federal championship finalist Rubin Star N, as well as the 1996 vice-champion approvals stallion performance test winner; double state champion and two-time federal championship finalist Sergeant Pepper have him as their damsire. Next to no other stallion bearing the Oldenburg brand caused such a stir during the 1980's and 1990's as Lassie’s sire Welt As. The cream of Welt As’s crop on the international stage are in particular, his sons starting under the Dutch flag, Leroy Borwn 3 / Wout Jan van der Schans on the course and Bonfire / Anky van Grunsven in the dressage arena. Sandro Hit’s maternal bloodline moreover produced a number of Vechta auction horses and foals.

Sandro Hit absolved his stallion performance test in Medingen in 1997 and in 1999 he became federal champion six-year old dressage horses as well as world champion juvenile horse in Arnheim. He has meanwhile been trained up to advanced class.

Right from the outset, Sandro Hit set standards not only in sport, but also in breeding. His first crops of foals are convincing by their exceptionally aesthetic imprint of type as well as their outstanding motions. His son Sandrit was the 1999 approval winner in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, while Sommerhit was runner-up in Berlin-Brandenburg and Sandro Ace became vice-champion in Oldenburg. Sunny Boy in turn, was awarded a premium in Oldenburg, whereas Sommeliere likewise was approved in Oldenburger in 1999. In the year 2000, Sandro Hit made the headlines once more: His Brandenburg bred daughter Poetin won the Federal Championship of three year old mares and geldings under Hans-Heinrich Meyer zu Strohen. A number of his offspring attained peak prices at different German auction sites, including his daughter Starlet, who at DM 140,000 was the top lot of the collection of broodmares at the 2000 Vechta spring auction. On top of that, two Sandro Hit progeny were awarded the desired status “approved” at the Oldenburg approval, as well as at the NRW approvals. In 2001 he sired the Federal champion and two vice champions. He currently has nine licensed sons and 2 state premium mares to his name.

Sandro Hit Multiplicity: Ein Hit und Viele Voltreffer

Sandro Hit"Le Moment Supreme" of the 2004 Althengst Parade in Vechta was the appearance of the Sandro Hit offspring, concluded by a royal appearance of his grand majesty Sandro Hit.

One by one announcer Jan Toenjes welcomed the Sandro Hit progeny into the arena: Sagnol (Sandro Hit x Landadel), San Remo (Sandro Hit x Donnerhall), Show Star (Sandro Hit x Feinbrand), Smetana (Sunny Boy x Donnerschwee), Sir Wilson (Sandro Hit x Canaster) and Sandro King (Sandro Hit x Calypso I) appeared. It became a multiplicity of Sandro Hit babies. Hardly knowing where to look first and which horse to keep an eye on, this Sandro Hit parade was a surreal experience.

Definitely standing out in the crowd was Gestut Wiesenhof's Sandro King, a massive dark bay-blackish dressage horse with much length in his neck and back without being too long.

Sandro KingThose who claim that Sandro Hits can not do the FEI movements will be proved wrong in the future. Sandro King showed remarkable potential for the highest collection in trot and canter.

Worth mentioning is that rider Fie Skarsoe is one of the few riders in Germany (and the world) who has the "Lisa Wilcox diva glow" to her. Always smiling and shining on her horses, Skarsoe is an anchor figure for the promotion of the Wiesenhof stallions.

The 2004 Althengst Parade closed with a breath taking finale in which Sir Donnerhall (Sandro Hit x Donnerhall) and his sire Sandro Hit (Sandro Song x Ramino) appeared in the ring while dramatic church music playing.

Sir Donnerhall and Sandro HitTeam P.S.I./Paul Schockemohle performed the same act in February 2004 on the Schockemohle Hengstvorfuhrung, where Sandro Hit and Poetin did a pas de deux.

Sir Donnerhall placed third in the premium ring at the 2003 Oldenburg Stallion Licensing, but he has become the most successful 3-year old breeding stallion for Oldenburg, covering more than 500 mares last year. In Vechta, Sir Donnerhall was only in the spotlight for five minutes, because as soon as Sandro Hit entered the ring, all eyes turned to this grand foundation sire His "little" son immediately fell into Sandro Hit's shade.

Sandro Hit's appearance at the Vechta Althengst Parade was the cherry on the cake. Since the black stallion's major 1999 world break through -- winning the World Young Horse Championships and the Bundeschampionate -- the black was hardly seen in public. In 2000 he won a couple of M-level classes, but that was it. From then on, Sandro Hit's life only meant one thing: breeding.

When you visit Paul Schockemohle's barn in Muhlen, Germany, you will find Sandro Hit covered in a layer of dust in a dirty stall in a dirty, dusty stable standing there with twenty other world class breeding stallions. Talk about an anti-climax. This king deserves a royal box, airy and spacey, layered with gold.

Fortunately, Sandro Hit's rider Dr. Ulf Möller brought the best out him again. The stallion looked shiny and fit and it was a true joy to see this lovely star in the show ring once again, bringing back memories of the glorious days in Arnhem, where Sandro Hit stole the hearts of crowd by winning the World Championships.

Sandro Hit: Example of the Perfect Dressage Horse

No other horse distinguished himself in a more prominent way than Sandro Hit. Undisputed best equine of the whole 1999 World Championships for Young Dressage Horses was Sandro Hit. "He's definitely is an exceptional horse and I feel honored to have the opportunity to ride him," rider Dr. Ulf Möller stated. Sandro Hit is a stallion where talking about wouldn't come to an end. Either if one discusses his perfect conformation or his three powerful, elastic, balanced basic gaits or even his superb potential to become an international star; Sandro Hit is just an example of the perfect dressage horse.

The black Oldenburger stallion by Sandro Song x Ramino became the favorite of the audience and while entering and leaving the arena the combination received an enormous amount of clapping and cheering. Sometimes even tears appeared in some people's eyes when seeing Sandro Hit parade around the ring. Winning every class with the sky high notes of 9.3, 9.7 and 85.94 in the six year old division Sandro Hit created a striking distance with number two Del Piero. Rider Dr. Ulf Möller, originally a veterinarian, has only been riding the licensed black stallion for half a year.

Möller works for Ullrich Kasselmann and Sandro Hit's owner Paul Schockemöle, who organizes the prestigous PSI-auctions in Ankum, Germany. Negiotations about the sale of Sandro Hit to the United States were already started before the Championships even began. Möller will be riding Sandro Hit until after the Bundeschampionate and then Europe is probably destined to see the best young dressage horse leave the continent to start a new career in the US.


2007: CRYOZOOTECH news in the field of equine cloning

Press release, August 22nd, 2007

CRYOZOOTECH is happy to announce the birth of the clone of 2003 dressage world champion POETIN 2, a Brandeburg mare that died prematurely in 2005. Now CRYOZOOTECH enters the dressage world. This achievement illustrates the use of the cloning technique for genetic safeguarding.

The first pregnancies from cloned horses have been obtained: PIERAZ-CRYOZOOTECH-STALLION, the first clone of a gelded champion horse, has covered Dziupla, a well known endurance mare from Vialaret farm: a foal is expected in 2008. Simultaneously Prométéa, a research pony mare and the first horse clone to be born, is also pregnant, due to foal in 2008.

POETIN 2 was born in 1997. This Brandeburg mare has an interesting life story:

POETIN 2, from Sandro Hit and Poesie by Brentano, was promised to a bright future: she won the German championship and the world championship in dressage for young horses, with so far unequalled grades (she got a 10/10 for her trotting performance!). She was sold € 2.5 million in 2003 to an ING Bank / van der Zwan farm (Netherlands) consortium. Xavier Marie acquired her in 2005 after the consortium had broken up. Unfortunately, when she reached his place, POETIN 2 had acute laminitis from which she did not recover. She was euthanised in December 2005. Knowing of CRYOZOOTECH's work for genetic preservation, Xavier Marie asked for her cells to be collected beforehand, with the objective in mind to get a replacement for his new studfarm HARAS DE HUS. POETIN's clone was born on March 30th, 2007. Now she frolics in paddocks of the Haras de Hus near Nantes on the west coast of France. This illustrates how cloning can be used to prevent exceptional genetics from being lost!
