All eyes are on Grandorado TN, being one of the greatest talents of the G-year of the KWPN. In the KWPN Performance Test the son of Eldorado van de Zeshoek earned 85.5 points and he was already described as a phenomenon. Top-level rider Willem Greve discovered many world-class horses in his career and bought a share of Grandorado too.
“He is a true natural. He is a rough diamond with all the potential, in my opinion”, Willem Greve states about Grandorado.
His unlimited scope and power, Grandorado inherited from his sire Eldorado van de Zeshoek, a son of Clinton which jumps at the highest level with Willem Greve. Dam Charmieque also jumped at 1.40m level with Willem Greve, after she scored 83 points in a mare performance test of the KWPN. Grandsire Carolus II jumped at Grand Prix level with both Thomas Voss and Schuyler Riley and has produced many international jumpers. Great-grandsire Baloubet du Rouet is also of top-class level, being a top sire and winner of three World Cup Finals and Olympic gold with Rodrigo Pessoa.
Grandorado was not only the champion of the KWPN Performance Test, but also won the finals of the kwpn stallion competitions in 2016 and 2017! He also became second in the Stallion Competition in both Kronenberg and Zuidbroek.
Spielberg is a dressage stallion to dream of. His conformation is almost ideal and he is a true ‘Strahlemann'. Thanks to his great movements, he obtained as only one of the few Westphalian stallions the title ‘Prämie' stallion.
Sire Sunny Boy is an acclaimed son of Sandro Hit out of the Donnerhall-daughter Fantastica – the full sister of the legendary Don Schufro and Don Primero. Spielberg's grandsire Rosier brings in the precious genes of Rubinstein I, who was bred out of the famous damline of Olympic champions Ahlerich, Rembrandt and Amon.
Through dam Rosiera, Spielberg goes back to Rondula, who is also the granddam of the Grand Prix dressage horse Last Minute, ridden by Ilka-Kerstin Geiss.
Besides a great size, Spielberg adds a fantastic mind to today's breeding of dressage horses. Thereby Spielberg has a lot of rhythm and balance in his movements.
Spielberg was succesful in higher level dressage under the Dutch rider Joyce Lenaerts.
Spielberg's oldest offspring also perform at respectable level: ridden by Fieke Houwen, Spielberg's Cartier made his debut at Prix St. Georges level and ridden by Robin van Lierop, Denza Lenza also performs at this same level.
