Like father, like son, Finalist HW seems to be a near clone to his famous sire Finest, he truly resembles a near copy of the unforgotten "winner of the heart" on the occasion of his licensing in Verden, winner of the series in dressage horse tests and a sire who seeks his equal! After unique moments at the licensing in Verden this convincing charmer had a more than successful entry into the breeding career. His foal years left nothing to be desired. There was hardly a foal show in which Finest could not make the respective winning foal. His captivating charm, unmistakable character and even the three basic gaits, blessed in equal measure with exceptional quality, he has undoubtedly passed on to his descendants. So it was possible in the last few years to provide several participants at the German Foal Championship in Lienen!
The inheritance of Finest is thus constantly on everyone's lips - this is still reflected on the auction sites of various associations again, an outstanding price spear chasing the next. A highlight was then the approvals last fall, it was raining record numbers in terms of the approved offspring of Finest. We would particularly like to highlight the Verden licensing, in which Finest was represented with 9 of his descendants. One of them was even allowed to decorate himself with the coveted premium sash and changed ownership for € 360,000. Through a total of 8 licensed sons on the most relevant Körplätzen Hannover, Oldenburg & Westphalia, this year's event was marked by Finest's signature. And also on the mare shows were already the first successes to be recorded, as well as numerous class wins and Schausiege were the result. A custom made inheritance performance in every respect.
This picture-book career is also reflected on the sporting level. After his 30-day test in Münster (breeding value of 138 points), Finest developed excellently and became a series winner in dressage horse tests with grades up to 9.0 at the age of four. So far undefeated in all his starts, he was able to win the first qualification for the Bundeschampionat of 5-year-old dressage horses in 2016 as well. Here, Finest received the third highest score of all qualified for the Bundeschampionat participants in his class. Father Fürstenball sets milestones at a very young age - he himself was a brilliant champion stallion of his licensing, HLP winner, Bundeschampion of 5-year-old dressage horses and a high-ranking participant in the world championship of six-year-old dressage horses. The mother Like Princess of the Schwindler's Trakehner family brought with her first three foals two licensed stallions and a top-class state premium Mare. Mother Father Like Weltmeyer himself u.A. attract attention as an Olympian. And Prince Thatch remains in the memory of Allen as the father of the World Cup team gold champion Piccolini under Klaus Husenbeth. More than 30 licensed stallions, numerous elite mares and countless award-winning foals have already emerged from this strain. Finest has no red factor and thus is pure dark in its inheritance.
Finalist HW's dam is by the famous stallion Stedinger, he was the radiant and unequivocal approval winner of the 2002 Oldenburg Stallion Days. He is a modern, elegant stallion, large framed, with a formidable overall appearance and highly elastic in every respect. Stedinger is one of the best of his age class as regards his jumping performance. His sire Sandro Hit is regarded as the upholder of the Sacramento Song xx - Butes bloodline that established itself in Holstein and was disseminated in the warmblood breeds of Oldenburg and Hanover via Sandro. Sandro Hit was federal champion six-year old dressage horse in 1999 and world champion of the young horses in Arnheim. In the meantime, he has become one of the most sought after contemporary sires. Five sons from his first crop were licensed at various approvals in Hanover, Münster-Handorf and Redefin as well as the radiant and undisputed Champion Stallion in Vechta, Status Quo made a strong statement. In 2006, six of his off-spring qualified for the German Foal Championship where his daughter, Sinfonie, became Champion Filly in 2004.Stedinger's dam, Association premium mare Bold-Fantasy absolved an excellent mare performance test with a loose jumping score of 10.00, an extraneous rider score of 9.0 and an overall score of 8.67. She is a full sister of the approved Lamar H, who is himself a successful dressage sports horse. She also produced the approved stallion Donninger. The maternal bloodline is directly linked to all the epochal greats of Oldenburg breeding history through Landadel, Futuro and Adonis xx. The Oldenburg foundation line of the mare Besinda (by Orient-Hildebald etc.) also brought forth the approved full-brothers Andrew (successes up to Grand Prix) and Armagnac, as well as the likewise multiple advanced dressage sports winner and approval champion Waldsee. This bloodline moreover also produced Tansanid, who won the the silver medal at the 1984 Olympic Games under Christine Stückelberger. The grandam gave birth to many successful showjumpers, dressage horses and cross-country eventing horses. Stedinger has won medium level dressage tests and with his strong movements and rideability, there's no doubt that he's headed toward Grand Prix, in spite of a heavy breeding load.
