From Superior Equine Sires:
Few stallions have managed to become a legend during their lifetime...and then there was Sandro Hit. He is a unique black beauty and his production of epochal importance to world dressage horse breeding. He has most definitely created a name for his line.
Sandro Hit has started a legendary new dynasty in dressage horse breeding. He and his offspring have a long list of accomplishments and he has champion blood through and through. Sandro Hit is himself a German national champion and World Champion of six-year-old dressage horses and has trained up to Grand Prix. In the dressage WBFSH world ranking, Sandro Hit was placed fourth in 2015. From 2010-2012 he won the USEF/Performance Horse Registry Leading Sire Award in the US as the best dressage sire.
Desendants of Sandro Hit are high in blood, modern, harmonious, equipped with excellent movement and a fascinating appearance and shine. He produces chic, modern, strong-moving progeny, who are gifted with captivating charm and are conquering the market. Sandro Hit has produced top-priced auction foals and horses with more than 185 licensed stallions including several champion stallions, state premium mares, championship winners, and numerous Grand Prix winners like St. Emillion and Showtime both under saddle of Dorothee Schneider as London's Olympic dressage team. Showtime also won the FEI World Cup Freestyle in Salisburg in 2016.
Sandro Hit reached another landmark in 2016 with two offspring in the Rio Olympics and both won metals. With Dorothee Schneider, Showtime FRH was part of the German gold metal team in dressage, after he became German Champion in the Grand Prix Free-style and Vice-champion in the Grand Prix special. Santano II gained a Bronze metal in eventing with Christopher Burton of Austrailia.
Sandro Hit has produced over ten Bundeschampions to date – and at the 2011 World Championship for Young Dressage Horses he presented numerous finalists such as Showtime, Sunday, and Soulmate. His offspring are setting new records in the sport with 142 mares being awarded state premium, and numerous progeny being auctioned for top prices like 2.5 million euros that was fetched for two-time Bundeschampion Poetin, or 580,000 euros the Bundeschampion San Francisco was sold for. He himself was striking Bundeschampion and World Champion of Six Year-Old Dressage Horses.
In the 2015 Hanoverian stallion book, Sandro Hit was recorded to have sired 1,087 competition horses with winnings of 744,268 euros and as of 2016 he has produced 1138 competition horses with total winnings fo 887,913 euros.
Sandro Song, his sire, was champion of his licensing in 1990 and main premium champion 1992, while his dam, Loretta, has passed on her genes to significant licensed sons like Royal Hit and Grand Prix winner Diamond Hit (who is sire of the 2011 NRW champion stallion).
We cannot say enough about this stunning sire.
Sandro Hit is the sire of our leased mare, Elite Mare Safira, and the damsire of our Havannah FH.
