Ridden by Marco Kutscher, Spartacus won the Grand Prix of Oslo in 2012 and became second in the Grand Prix of Leipzig and Geneva. Ridden by Henk van de Pol, Spartacus has also achieved many good results, including twice a fourth place in the three star Grand Prix competitions of Vejer de la Frontera and the tenth place at the Dutch Championships in Mierlo.
Spartacus’ pedigree was fully build on performance genes: sire Stakkato is the best stallion the Hanoverian Verband has had in years and produced an endless list of international showjumpers. Grandsire Grannus is considered to be one of the best dam’s sires of all time and still appears in the pedigrees of many world-class showjumpers at the highest level. Spartacus’ dam Galina earlier brought Elton John, a son of Acorado I who jumps successfully at Grand Prix level with Hergen Forkert. Via the sires Colorado x and Granit, Spartacus’ pedigree goes back to the famous mare Welfenglück, who performed successfully at international level with Herman Schridde.
As a sire, Spartacus develops himself in the best possible way: out of his first crop of offspring several jump at international level and also Spartacus’ youngest offspring convince in age classes.
