Sandro Hit - Soraya’s Sire

Soraya’s sire is Sandro Hit, the black 16.3 hand ground breaking stallion who has founded a new dynasty of dressage horses the world over. In 2017 World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses ranked Sandro Hit the number 3 dressage breeding stallion in the world! As a 6 year old he was the World Dressage Champion. He has more than 18 licenced stallions and more than 180 state premium mares. He has produced 11 bundeschampions and top rate offspring including Sir Donnerhall who has the same breeding as Soraya (Sandro Hit/Donnerhall). This same breeding produced the 2007 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing Champion, Soliman de Hus (with 7 licenced stallions), considered to be the best son of Sandro Hit. This combination also produced Weihegold (Don Schufro/Sandro Hit) the winner of the GrandPrix Special at Rio.

In 2010, 2011 and 2012 Sandro Hit won the USEF/Performance Horse Registry Leading Sire Award as best dressage sire in the USA. The legend continues. In 2013 a 2½ year old Sandro Hit/Donnerhall colt was one of 43 dressage colts selected for Oldenburg stallion licencing. Sandro Hit’s progeny have been auctioned for top prices including the 2.5 million Euro for his daughter Poetin two-time Bundeschampion. His progeny are consistently winning in the show ring including the Rio Olympic GrandPrix Special winner Weihegold, out of a SandroHit mare.

Sandro Hit’s dam Loretta is probably the most influential mare today in dressage breeding with 3 licenced sons, Sandro Hit, Diamond Hit and Royal Hit. Welt AS, Sandro Hit’s maternal great grandsire produced Olympic gold medalist Bonfire ridden by Anky van Grunsven.
