Offering for young stallion "Secret"...

SECRET (Sezuan - St. Moritz - Rotspon)

Well, he has been much the talk of the town the past week since being introduced to the market outside of Germany. 
I had a nice visit with Gestuet WM and met young (3 years) "SECRET" a few weeks ago. and was delighted with his quality and his nature. 
Time has not yet proven how these lofty moving youngsters will mature for the Gran Prix ring, but, for now, they are captivating. And this one is absolutely good in his legs and mind. He goes for his stallion testing in mid April, so we will all be looking forward to those results.
It has not worked out to freeze semen for the U.S. due to the early demand for fresh cooled semen in his own Country. We will look to the Fall for them to be able to dedicate time for freezing for North America , looking towards the next breeding season

I am very pleased to introduce SERANO GOLD to the American breeding market. He will be offered with an optional LFG contract. 

I first met Serano Gold as a young stallion, fresh off a win to qualify for the German Nationals Championships (Bundeschampionats). He was in the Finals that year, as a 3 year old. He qualified 2 more times for the BCs , then went to Edward Gal for training, where he was successful through Prix St. Georges as well as in breeding with KWPN mares. Subsequently he was sold into England and disappeared from the public eye…… until NOW!  A sharp eyed breeder kept his eye on Serano Gold all the time, and when the opportunity again arose, Serano Gold was purchased and relocated to a wonderful Stud Farm in Austria, where two of his excellent sons live!Both are stallions, Solitaire Gold and Silenzio Gold. (see videos) Still sound, happy and super healthy, Serano Gold is working the Grand Prix under rider Marcus Notworthy, qualified rider at the Spanish Riding School in Vienna. 

To this day, I believe his positive note for the American Warmblood breeding market is the absolute trainability/rideability of his offspring. He is such a strong stamper and gives a consistent “product”; in very user friendly, beautiful and easy to ride and train partners. This is a jewel of a sire for the American dressage market, and I would not discount him as a hunter sire

Excellent quality semen has been collected and prepared at world renowned University of Austria. Introductory price of $650 per dose this year or $1600 LFG.
