Zophiel/Martini x Summertime
Her Sire - Summertime is a Trakehner Verband Elite Candidate and was approved as a premium stallion in Neumünster in 2000. He passed an excellent 70 day test and also won and placed in Young Dressage Horse classes in Germany, as well as Riding Horse Suitability classes which include jumping. Summertime has produced excellent foal crops in Germany with many inspection champions and the approved stallions Songline (Champion in 2006, sold for 325,000€), Eveiro and Giovanni Silva in Germany, as well as Eisenherz in North America.
Summertime's sire E.H. Michelangelo was a leading mare producer in Germany and the Netherlands. As a riding horse producer, his focus was on dressage, but a number of very successful eventers also stem from his lines, e.g. the approved Hölderlin at CIC*** level. Michelangelo was approved in Neumünster in the 1980s and left Germany for Holland, where he started his breeding career. It was not until 1991 that his first crop of sons was inspected in Neumünster. That crop yielded the amazing champion Kennedy and the premium Guy Laroche (ATA). Other approved sons include the 1998 Reserve Champion Hirtenruf (now FEI dressage), the pinto Contrieu, the Danish dressage sire Michellino (e.g. sire of the 2009 European Dressage Champinships Team Bronze medal winner Mistral Hojris) and the Oldenburg premium stallion Mon Dieu. Michelangelo shared his sire Pasteur xx with another legendary dressage sire of the Trakehner breed - Mahagoni. Michelanglo's dam Miami, who was awarded State and Verband Premium as well as Elite status, also produced the international Grand Prix dressage winner E.H. Monteverdi TSF.
Through his dam Sarogna, a Bundeschampionat qualified riding horse in Germany, Summertime contributes the blood of yet another major sire of the Trakehner breed: E.H. Arogno, Anglo Trakehner by Flaneur out of E.St. Arcticonius xx by Apollonius xx, was one of the most prominent sires in Germany and also influenced many other breeds through his sons, grand sons and great grand sons. He is the foundation of the very successful line of E.H. Caprimond - E.H. Hohenstein, as well as of the top Danish warmblood line of Schwadroneur - Blue Hors Hertug, to name just two. In the falling dam line, the Ibikus-son Valerian and the mare producer Wilder Jäger then round out a valuable genetic background. Summertime's mare family of Sophie also produced the Neumünster Reserve Champion Samurai II (later exported to the US), the East German show jumper sire Sarastro and the impeccable show jumper sire Sarafan.
