1999 Oldenburg Stallion

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 impressive.

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.
