About - Morricone is a sensational young stallion who has been overwhelmingly popular in his first two seasons at stud. From a Trakehner sire and an Oldenburg damline, he brings together the very best of German breeding. In 2017, Morricone has matured into an outstanding young horse who is every inch a stallion. With his exceptional temperament, easy rideability, expressive paces, powerful hindleg and perfect conformation, Morricone is the complete package for dressage breeders.
Performance - He was the champion and crowd favourite of the 2014 Oldenburg Licensing, and was the runaway winner of his performance test the following year, with four scores of 10 and nine scores of 9 or 9.5, for a spectacular total of 9.33. As with all stallions at Bonhomme, Morricone is being produced slowly with the future in mind, but at every stallion show, he impresses the crowd and is a joy to watch. He was awarded the dressage Hauptprämie in 2016, in recognition of his outstanding first crop.
Sire - Millennium is a renowned stallion-maker, and comes from a line of grand prix Trakehner stallions including the legendary Gribaldi, sire of World and European Champion Totilas, Grey Flannel, Painted Black and countless other exquisite stallions. Millennium's sire Easy Game excelled in his performance test, and while he competes to advanced level, his youngsters are proving themselves both in sport and competiton. Easy Game's damsire Schwadroneur also competed at grand prix, and his mother line has produced 38 licensed stallions within the first four generations.
Damline - Rubin Royal OLD has already produced twenty six licensed sons, and is the premium winner of the Oldenburg and international grand prix series. He is the eldest of six licensed brothers and has been trained up to grand prix level. He has 25 licensed offspring and numerous grand prix offspring, including Rubicon D, Rigoletto Royal CH, Rockefellers Cinderella, U.S. Latina and Real Dancer. Third sire De Niro has led the WBFSH Sire Rankings for four of the past five seasons, and is the sire of the numerous Olympic, World and European medallists, including Desperados FRH, Delgado, D'Agostino, Dablino and Glock's Voice.
Progeny - Morricone's first crop of foals are all copies of their sire; compact, beautiful models with perfect conformation and friendly, inquisitive temperaments. Several of them were invited to the Elite Foal Auctions and they are much sought after.
