“Loved by the public – ennobled with the band – celebrated as Champion” – The 2014′ Oldenburg Champion Stallion and dressage winner at his stallion performance test in 2015 and 2016′ main premium winner. 2019‘highlight of Morricone’s sporting performance was the final of the Nürnberg Burpokal, finishing on fifth rank in the Frankfurter Festhalle.
Morricone unites an optimum in noblesse and type, striking quality of movements as well as brilliant rideability and strength of character in incomparable kind. “Our Champion Stallion is hard to beat in view of his elegance, type and manner. With his royal appearance and his outstanding movements, always keeping his perfect self-carriage, this noble black stallion, from the breeding of Heinrich Vahle in Friesoythe, inspired the audience and the committee”, so commented the Oldenburg Breeding Manager Dr. Schulze Schleppinghoff at his licensing 2014. Since then, Morricone has been attracting attention at every presentation.
As highlight of the year 2016 the Oldenburg Verband proclaimed Morricone celebrated main premium winner due to his outstanding power of heredity combined with his first-class performance record.
In his stallion performance test he won superiorly the dressage part with a score of 9.33 and received the maximum score 10.0 for rideability and walk four times. All basic gaits as well as constitution, character, temperament and willingness to perform were praised with scores of 9.5 and 9.0.
Morricone’s offspring exceeded all expectations. They stand out with their beautiful and noble type like they were all of a piece. In 2020 Morricone’s sons Macchiato and Montgomery became Westphalian and DSP champions of three-year-old stallions. In Oldenburg Moreno (by Morricone) was entitled reserve champion. Furthermore, Morricone presented two price-highlights at the Oldenburg auction: Mister Universe (€340,000) and Movie Star (€250,000). In addition, there were numerous champion foals at well-known foal championships as well as many elite auction foals, selling for top prices at prestigious auction sites all over the world. Ten sons of Morricone are licensed including four premium stallions in Oldenburg, Hanover and Westphalia.
Morricone’s progeny is wanted as extremely rideable, powerfully moving beauties who conquer every rider’s heart instantly.
His classic line of ancestors appears like a fairytale: His sire Millennium was second reserve Champion at the 2010′ Trakehner main licensing and leads over his sire Easy Game to the noble blood of the Trakehner Gribaldi directly.
The dam’s sire Rubin Royal OLD is Main Premium Winner in Oldenburg and international serial Grand Prix winner under Hendrik Lochthowe.
The grandsire is none other than De Niro. It would go beyond the scope to honor his breeding record in detail.
In fourth generation the Grand Prix winner Rubinstein manifests the pedigree as founder of the modern R-line. This line is also known for the performance-sires Admiral I as well as Thoroughbred Guter Gast xx.
Therefore, origin of success is the dam line of Hainbuche, which also produced Donnerhall’s dam’s sire Markus, Weltgeist I, San Remo as well as numerous successful Grand Prix horses.
