Danced to gold at the German Championships
Under his sport name Zucchero, Zucchero Gold received the perfect score of 10.0 at the German Championships for five-year-old dressage horses for his responsiveness to the rider’s aids and therefore submission. He was awarded 9.0 for his big, balanced trot, 9.5 for his relaxed walk, 9.0 for his energetic uphill canter and 9.5 for the grandiose overall impression. With 9.4 and a clear lead over the competition, Zucker won the title with Frederic Wandres. Previously, at the World Championships for Young Horses, he only narrowly missed the podium, finishing fourth (9.24), after finishing second in the qualifier for the final. In 2017, at the age of four, Zucker, who was awarded the OLD suffix for the best Oldenburg bred horses, won the Oldenburg regional Championships. In 2019, he will stand at stud for the first time.
His sire Zonik was placed at the World Championships for Young Horses and, in 2018, he took the eighth place at the World Cup final in Paris/FRA and was placed seventh individually and fifth with the Dutch team at the World Equestrian Games in Tryon/USA. Among his sons licensed in Germany is Zodiac MDM, winner of the Oldenburg saddle licensing, regional champion and third at the German Championships. Zum Gluck RS2 OLD was the bronze medallist at the German Championships and silver medallist at the Regional Championships.
On the dam's sire's side is Prince Thatch xx, a very important thoroughbred for warmblood breeding. His most famous descendant was probably Piccolino/Klaus Husenbeth, World Team Champion and European Team Champion as well as three-time German Champion.
The great-grand-sire Donnerhall was double World Team Champion, European Team Champion and German Champion with Karin Rehbein. He has had a lasting influence on dressage horse breeding with his well over 100 licensed sons and his numerous offspring in sport.
From this bloodline also descends the premium stallion Robert Downey Junior.
