Sire's Sire - Starpower TN
Thanks to Starpower TN, Germany’s best genetics are available to breeders! Ridden by Eva Bitter, sire Stakkato was among Germany's best horses for years and his offspring have excelled too. Just to mention some of Stakkato’s world-famous offspring: Spartacus TN, Souvenir, Satisfaction I, Filou de Muze and many other Grand Prix showjumpers. Grandsire Escudo I has also proven to be a valuable sire in Germany and Starpower’s dam 'Enjoy' is no less than the full sister to El Paso, who jumped at international level with both Markus Beerbaum and Daniel Heuer. Additionally, dam Enjoy produced Cian O’Connor’s rising star Saphir and the international showjumper Pegasus Athleta. Granddam Wyoming jumped at 1.40m and is the full sister of Grand Prix dressage stallion Frambeau and the aunt of Imke Schellekens-Bartels’ legenday Olympic Sunrise.
Starpower TN became the champion of both the 70-day test in Prüssendorf as the KWPN Performance Test. Starpower was approved by the KWPN with a score of 87 points, including a 9 for reflexes, rideability, attitude and talent as a showjumper. Later on, Starpower TN and Hanno Ellerman jumped successfully in all the young horse competitions, and ridden by Zoï Snels, Starpower TN made his international 1.40m debut last year. At the World Championships in Lanaken for 7-year-olds, Starpower TN showed his enormous scope and potential for the major Grand Prix level.
Starpower’s oldest offspring catch the eye with their scope and easy way of jumping and out of his first crop, already two sons were invited for the second round of the KWPN Stallion Selections.
