He’s dark, handsome, elegant and has talent in abundance. If you ever see him in the flesh or watch him in action, he would undoubtedly make an impression on you. The Trakehner stallion Grafenstolz, is certainly proving hot property in the breeding world right now and he is just one of the many, first class stallions we profile on Horse Scout.

 

Rarely do you find an stallion who both in his own performance and that of his off-spring has proven to be a Master of all Trades. In fact you would be hard pressed to find many stallions with better all-round credentials. Grafenstolz currently stands at Number One in the British Eventing stallion rankings and is in the top 10 of the World rankings for good reason but he is also siring a number of quality jumpers and dressage horses.

The fact that World No 1 eventer Michael Jung chose to compete him as a young horse is testament to the stallion’s ability. The pair won the prestigious Bundeschampionnat 6 year old eventing championships (the German Young Horse Championships) and was also a finalist for the 6 year old Jumping and Dressage Championships. That same year, he won the World Eventing Championships in Lion d’Angers and then displayed his extraordinary scope and bravery when clearing 2 metres in an International Puissance competition.

 

His progeny are displaying the same talent, willingness and bravery together and seem to be inheriting his elegant movement. Some of his successful representatives include Grand Prix Iwet who finished 4th at Waregem in CSI3* level showjumping; Santana’s Gold who won the Junior European Championships; Gina K, Telstar de Bardenave, Saviola 3, Giaccomo YSS and Mr Schabel are all competing CCI3* eventing. Then in young horse classes he has dominated the Burghley Young Event Horse Finals as well as the French Young Horse Championships.

He is also the damsire of the reserve champion at the 2015 Trakehner approvals, Fellini who is now in training with leading Dressage rider Helen Langehanenberg.

 

Grafenstolz stands at 167cm and is approved by a number of the main studbooks: Trakehner, Selle Francais, AES, Anglo Arab, Hannovarian and is ranked number one of all the stallions in Baden-Wurttemberg.

 

His own breeding is exemplary. His sire Polarion qualified several times for the World Cup Finals in dressage and went to the European Championships with Laura Bechtolsheimer. His damline is equally impressive as his mother is the full sister of the approved stallion Gypsy King and the approved stallions Guy Laroche and Grimani are from this damline.

 

His stud fee remains at 900 euros plus VAT this season which includes a live foal guarantee.
