Based on Polish and Anglo-Arab genetics, Adorator is a most
attractive outcross offering not only to our Trakehner breeder friends!
The Trakehner Verband happily licensed the three year-old Polish Adorator at
his 2014 spring approval in Münster-Handorf. Happily, because you
don't get ahold of such exquisite outcross bloodlines every day. At that
point in time, the now obviously grey Adorator was still rather black
and you could clearly tell his immaturity and youth. His Polish breeder
had sent the young colt on this long distance journey of 900 kilometers to
Münster Handorf and luckily, it was a worthwhile trip and effort.
The dark grey stallion, Adorator, is by Cedrus x Agar and as such a half
sibling to Avatar. Their common mother is Alana by Kerman x Cardiff
xx. Avatar was previously licensed two years before at the Trakehner main
licensing in Neumünster in 2012 where he stood out as the best jumper
stallion and received the premium label accordingly. Last summer, at the
Trakehner Championships in Hannover, Avatar won the eventing class A
scoring a 9.0 and the 5-year old L-class earning a 9.3!
A similar sport career is planned for Adorator, who is in training with
Jens Hoffrogge, who also developed Asagao (check our stallion roster for
Via his female grandsire Agar, Adorator still contains some of the
precious blood of Hyperion xx, the once so meaningful foundation
stallion of the Trakehner breed. Via his sireline, Adorator also goes
back to the Trakehner Poprad, who is one of the most successful Trakehner
jumpers of all time (7th at the 1972 Olympic Games). Adorator descends from
the thoroughbred family no.7 (D‘Arcy‘s Blacklegs Royal Mare), which
also produced multiple times champion stallion Danzig by Northern Dancer.
Adorator shows a 55 percent thoroughbred portion which qualifies him as
a refiner for any kind of warmblood breeding.
Adorator's conformation and silhouette already proves a visibly refined
and noble stallion.
When he was licensed in Münster Handorf in spring 2014, Adorator
convinced by his noble type, generous canter and appealing mechanics in
trot. Jumping at liberty was a promising hint to his future
sport career as an eventer. A very nice under-saddle performance
completed Adorator's first public appearance in Münster and justified
his licensing in every respect.
Adorator went back to Poland that year and became Vice-Champion of the
four year-old Polish dressage horses. Shortly after, the young stallion
was sold to Germany and moved to the barn of Markus and Jens
Hoffrogge where he will be trained and make his sport debut as an eventer.
Jens and Adorator have already celebrated their first show together at the
Gala Night of the Trakehner licensing in Neumünster only a couple of
months ago. The pair gained a lot of applause and attention and the grey
stallion has been well bespoken amongst the German Trakehner breeder
community ever since. We really encourage you to check out the video
link of Adorator's dazzling under saddle performance at the Polish Young
Horse Championships in the summer of 2015. Enjoy it as much as we did when we
first saw it.
