Licensed for Berlin-Brandenburg, Oldenburg, Hanoverian
exceptional moving young stallion has already started his winning ways.
Paired with the talented young rider, Christian Flamm of Hessen,
Quaterback galloped away from the competition at the Bundeschampionates
He started his stallion career by being named Champion of his licensing in Neustadt/Dosse in 2005.
In 2006, after the Bundeschampionates, he went on to win his 30 day
test at Neustadt/Dosse with outstanding scores:
Riding qualities 9.75
Quaterback at the Bundeschampionates in 2006
His pedigree is steeped in the traditions of the Brandenburgisches
Landgestuet. His sire, Quaterman, was bred there and is by
Quando-Quando , the excellent dressage competition stallion that
Christy Oatley-Nist rides.
His career in sport and breeding has been exemplary, beginning in 1995
as a top colt at the Vechta auction, continuing to become the 1c
Premium winner at the stallion approval and the undisputed winner at
the stallion performance test with the highest possible score of 10 for
character and willingness to perform, a score of 9.5 for rideability
and a score of 9 for temperament, walk, trot and canter. Highlights in
sport have been participation in the Bundeschampionat finals for 5 and
6 year old dressage horses, 5th place at the World Championships in the
class for 6 year old dressage horses as well as 5th place at the
Nürnberg Burgpokal 2003, prior to which he won the VTV Dressage
Stallion of the Year Award. With first places in international Grand
Prix in 2004 and winning World Cup B finals in Dortmund , he was
then nominated for the Olympic Games in Athens..
His off-spring are very popular because of their modern, noble looks,
outstanding rideability and strong movements and they also have the
good jumping ability his pedigree promises. All of these
characteristics are impressively documented in the FN's 2004 Predicted
Breeding Value statistics.
He is by the significant stallion �Quattro�, whose bloodlines speak of
great jumpers, yet also super movers with power and suspension.
Quattro, himself, excelled in dressage, yet showed talent over fences.
And well he should , being by Qredo de Paulstro. That sire line goes
back to French blood through Galoubet � Alme� Z � Ibrahim, Furioso xx.
A French stallion with an outstanding performance record and off-spring
to prove his qualities as a sire. With a score of more than 130, he
finished his performance test in Medingen on 2 nd place. In 1994 he
became the Reserve Champion Stallion at the Oldenburg approval. In the
meanwhile he has been successful internationally at shows in Caen
(FRA), Leeuwarden (NL), Berlin, Munich, Geneva (CH) and Moscow.
Along with many State Premium mares, he has also sired 13 licensed sons
and has supplied jumpers as well as dressage horses in series that have
reached top international level, particularly Oliver Q under Ryuichi
Obata for Japan at the Olympic Games in Athens
Quaterman, himself, has been a very good sire and competition horse,
having qualified for the Finals of the Bundeschampionates in 2003, 2004
He shows the athletic abilty and versatility of his sire line.
The dam line of Quaterback is a very well known and respected mare line in Brandenburg. His dam “Passionata” is by the
Beach Boy son , “Brandenburger”, who made his performance
as a jumper:
That sire line (Beach Boy) goes again to French blood through the
stallion �Zeus�. On Brandenburger�s dam line comes the excellent
Hanoverian stallin Wendekreis, admired for the excellent riding horses
Quaterback�s grand-dam is the famous mare �Poesie� by �Brentano II.
Poesie is best known for her �Sandro Hit� daughter ,�Poetin�, and also
the Sandro Hit sons , Samba Hits I, II, III and IV!
The list of accomplishments of these offspring is tremendous.
So, in Quaterback, we have depth of pedigree of athletic,
multi-talented individuals. Quarterback uses his body as nothing you
have ever seen. He is the talk of the town in Germany, with movements
that can only be described as incredibly supple, strong and uphill. He
is a freshman sire, so I cannot give you any fertility particulars or
foal reports. It will be interesting to see if he can reproduce his
wonderful type and movement. He truly is charming. I suspect, from his
strong pedigree, we will be seeing more little Quaterbacks around!
We will no doubt have a limited supply of doses this year.
