About - Grey Top is a tall, athletic and powerful stallion, from a proven pedigree, who is already proving himself in both breeding and sport. He is light on the ground, quick over a fence and very rideable and adjustable, with a balanced, rhythmic canter.
Performance - In his Hanoverian performance test, Grey Top was reserve champion of the jumping stallions and a very good fifth of the dressage stallions, finishing third overall and proving his versatility, movement and temperament. As a young horse, Grey Top won and placed in several classes at medium level, and with scores up to 9.0 he qualified for the Hanoverian Jumping Horse Championship as well as the Bundeschampionat. By 2016, Grey Top has stepped up to 1.50m level and has impressed the spectators with several placings.
Sire - Graf Top I, who adds a lot of Gotthard blood to the pedigree from the valuable 'G' line, has produced numerous grand prix jumpers and many up-and-coming jumping horses who are competing internationally. Graf Top's sire Graf Grannus has produced more than 20 grand prix horses, among them the licensed sons Gavi, Gem of India, Gigolino and Giovanni, while damsire Calypso II, who is also Grey Top's third sire, was a hugely successful stallion who jumped to 1.45m level himself and has sired numerous grand prix offspring, including the licensed son Contendor.
Damline - Damsire Singular Joter has produced several grand prix horses, and his dam was an outstanding broodmare, producing six licensed sons including Singular's full brother, Singular Joter II, who jumped at international grand prix and won team gold at the 2007 Pan-Am Games for Brazil, and grand prix jumper Landritter Do Feroleto II. Ravella's maternal half-sister Orinal produced a grand prix dressage horse, Lambadero. Other stallions from Grey Top's mareline include Churchill, Gama Alacant, Aerobic Z, Don John, Lucky Boy D, Goldhard Z, Artos Z, Hamlet, plus the grand prix jumper Belony (by Balou du Rouet), while Grey Top's full sister Graf Magna jumpe dup to 1.55m, and their half-brother Stuntman 10 is jumping international 1.60m grand prix.
Progeny - The foals from Grey Top are super models, with his oldest offspring turning five years old in 2017. He has three licensed sons from his first crop, with a fourth son licensed from the following year's foals. Two of his stallion sons, Gunfire PJ and Grey Quindam PJ, are now emerging in sport, jumping at 1.20m level. Grey Top passes on his scope, athleticism, temperament and movement.
