Successful combination of the best dressage bloodlines in Europe
Champion Stallion of the Oldenburg licensing in 2018, Premium Stallion of the Danish licensing in 2019 and second Reserve Champion of his stallion performance test in Denmark with the dream score of 904.5 points. The absolutely charismatic Global Player once again impressed the experts with his excellent rideability and willingness to perform, his remarkably ground-covering walk with perfect rhythm, his energetic trot, swinging beautifully through the body from behind, and his wonderful uphill canter with exemplary freedom of the shoulder.
Through his sire Kastel’s Grand Galaxy Win T and his dam, Don Schufro’s daughter Chatel's Schurana, as well as the half-blood Rawage Quintus (by Age xx) in the third generation and the Trakehner Donauwind in the fourth generation, his pedigree combines the best performance lines.
His sire Kastel’s Grand Galaxy Win T, a son of Apache, who came eighth in the World Cup with Emmelie Scholtens/NED, and out of a Jazz dam, was Danish Champion Stallion in 2014, Danish Vice Champion in 2015 and placed finalist at the World Championships for 5-year-old dressage horses in 2016. He is now trained to advanced level. Several of his sons have been licensed, including the premium stallions Hesselhøj Gnags and Giovanni Bell. His offspring have been placed in competitions for young dressage and riding horses in their age classes.
His dam Chatel’s Schurana received a silver medal for her test and took part, for Denmark, in the World Championships for Young Horses in 2007 in Verden. She then started her breeding career.
The dam's sire Don Schufro, Danish Champion and team bronze winner at the 2008 Olympic Games in Hong Kong/HKG with Andreas Helgstrand/DEN, sired numerous successful horses, the most famous being Weihegold OLD/Isabell Werth, Olympic Gold medallist, World Cup winner and European Champion. From 2012 to 2017 and again in 2019, he was amongst the top ten of the world's best dressage sires according to the WBFSH. For years, he also dominated the FN breeding valuation.
The Danish half-blood Rawage Quintus (by Age xx) appears in the third generation of the pedigree. The Trakehner Donauwind, in the fourth generation, is considered by experts to be one of the best sires of the post-war period. He stood at stud in Denmark and then in the USA. He produced, amongst others, the show-jumping Olympic and World Cup Champion, Abdullah, and the dressage Grand Prix horse, Fabian.
He descends from the original Hanoverian mare line of Williswinda, from which also descend the internationally successful dressage horses Happiness/Isabella Tovek/SWE, Don Corleone/Kathleen Muhr, Radcliffe/Agnete Berger/DEN, Macao/Elizabeth Bortuzzo/USA, Alion/Juan Manuel Vidal/ESP and Angelo/Markus Jungwirth as well as various licensed stallions.
