|SOPRANO, formerly Blue Hors Soprano ridden by Andreas Helgstrand, is a striking, modern, 17.1 h, homozygous black
stallion with proven world class performance bloodlines inherent in his pedigree. Possessing correct conformation and three
excellent basic gaits that exhibit energy, activity, suspension, and elasticity, his ground covering, movement is effortless and
SOPRANO’s pedigree demonstrates great depth and versatility. His sire, the legendary 1999 World Young Horse
Champion and Bundeschampianate SANDRO HIT, passes on to his progeny the genes of numerous influential stallions.
SANDRO HIT’s sire, SANDRO SONG, a double graded champion in Oldenburg, is by SANDRO, an international show jumper
who won the Danish Derby ridden by Franke Sloothaak. WELT AS, in SANDRO HIT’s third generation, is famous for siring Anke
Van Grunsven’s Olympic Dressage Champion Bonfire and many other top horses.
SOPRANO'S damsire, the legendary CONTENDER, who won his 100 day test, is one of the most significant sires in
Germany. CONTENDER’s progeny are characterized by outstanding jumping ability, very good movement, and excellent
rideability. SOPRANO's mare line (The Flattopia) produced many international stars such as dressage horse Rubioso ridden
by Ellen Bontje; Lord Kem (Champion Stallion in 1989); Continue; Maffay; Calmiro; and Farmer.
ALSO FOUND on SOPRANO’s damside is TIN ROCCO, who won ten conformation tests as a three year old and
competed in Grand Prix jumping winning the Preis Von Blankenesse in Hamburg/Klein Flottbek (Derby Show). Of TIN ROCO’s
approved sons, Traumtänzer won the stallion performance test in the USA and Torero was his best winning dressage horse in
1990. His highly awarded St. Pr. daughter Gutena represented him successfully at the German show in Verden in 1990. His
son Tie Break was in the finals of the 1988 German Show Jumping Championships and in 1990, he won a test at the German
event horse championships. In the 1990 FN breeding statistics TIN ROCCO leads as the most successful sire of event horses
of his age group.
TIN ROCCO’S sire, TIN ROD XX, was an English TB of large frame and excellent movement. He produced approved
stallions and very valuable mares including the dam of Landlord (Olympic horse 1988) and Lausbub (international show
SOPRANO'S OFFSPRING are modern in type inheriting his beauty, elegance, elastic movement, correct conformation,
outstanding temperament, athleticism, and dark color. Not only do they show great talent for dressage, they also show a great
deal of scope and style over jumps. Soprano has been a very consistent producer of top offspring in Sweden, Denmark,
Germany and the United States as noted below.
We invite you to share in the excitement and joy of breeding a Soprano foal and look forward to working with you.
