Son père Sandro Hit

At the auctions in Vechta, Verden and Ankum as well as at auctions in Holland and England, Sandro Hit has produced one top foal after another. At the Spring auction 2002 in Vechta, his son "Super Star" was sold for over € 250,000. In 2002 alone, he was the sire of two champion stallions, "Sir Wilson" and "Stedinger". For years his offspring have been winning medals at the National Young Horse Championships, for example "Show Star", National Young Horse Champion 2001 and Vice-Champion 2002. "Poetin" won the National Young Horse Championships in 2000 and 2002 and the World Championship title in 2003. Moreover this exceptional mare brought the record price of €2.5 million at the P.S.I. auction. Besides Poetin, Sandro Hit produced "Sandro" the Reserve-Champion at the National Young Horse Championships and "Sunny Boy" the winner of the small final. Sandro Hit's progeny are causing a sensation wherever they appear ­ "Starlett", most expensive horse of the Broodmare collection and "Schatzinsel", top price at the Vechta Spring Auction. Sandro Hit continues to earn points through his progeny: in the dressage horse classes, not only does he have the highest index of 153 in the whole of Germany but the highest security rate at 88%.

Sandro Hit's sire, Sandro Song was Oldenburger Champion Young Stallion and Main Premium Champion. The dam's 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. His dam, elite mare "Loretta" produced the reigning Vice-World Champion and Vice-National Young Horse Champion Diamond Hit and the highly elegant 1c premium stallion, Royal Hit.

Her dam, Dakota I.K is by the stallion Dream of Glory, the magical cross of Donnerhall with a Pik Bube mare. Dream of Glory scored 146 points for rideability at his performance test, the best of his year, to finish fourth overall at Medingen. In 1994 he competed in novice and elementary level dressage competitions, and qualified for the 1995 Bundeschampionate. In 2000, he started seven times with Anja Hermelink, gaining four wins and three placings up to Intermediaire level. He was competing at Grand Prix before his untimely death from a colic attack.

Bundeschampionate winner and 2000 World Young Dressage Horse championships' participant Dreamy's Dream and Bundeschampionate reserve champion Dr Jackson are his most famous offspring. Dream of Glory was also well represented as a sire in various Verden Elite sport horse auctions.
