Sinclair B's Bloodlines
Sinclair B's pedigree is made up of many "greats" in European Warmblood breeding history. Many of the stallions in his pedigree provide the foundation upon which the modern warmblood is based. Such greats include Pericles, Hyperion, Der Löwe, Domspatz, Duellant, Maharadscha and Senator to name a few. Some of these horses have entire families and breeding lines based on their genes.
Another measure as to the quality of Sinclair B's bloodlines are the thirteen (at least) horses in his pedigree which were granted State Premium, Preferent, Ster or Kern status. Some of these horses have the honor of DLG awards as well. The DLG award is an extremely rare and prestigious honor. It is awarded by the national organization that oversees all the German Warmblood breeds; therefore, Hanoverian, Oldenburg, Trakehner, Holsteiner, Westphalian...etc mares all compete against each other for this great honor.
As well as having great warmbloods of the past, Sinclair has many talented, successful well rounded horses of today in his pedigree too. Stallions like Samber who reached upper levels in dressage and jumping and has seen great success in the breeding shed as well. And Sinclair B's dam who successfully competed in eventing and her sire Lopez who competed in upper level jumping under two riders. The list of accomplishments of these horses goes on and on.
Sinclair B himself showed incredible potential as a jumper as well as having great movement for dressage as a youngster but an unfortunate injury from wire cut his career short. Eventhough he was not able to prove himself in competition, Sinclair B is living up to his pedigree as a breeding stallion. He is the sire of Southern Star who is an approved stallion in Germany currently competing in upper level dressage. Sonny Boy, another son by Sinclair B was also approved to be a stallion and is currently standing in Indonesia. Sinclair B's grandson, Multicolor, just received his stallion approval and was Reserve Champion at his inspection. Another son of Sinclair B's named Smooth Design was granted Premium Stallion status at his stallion approval in 2005. These breeding successes demonstrate that Sinclair B is prepotent and is passing along the quality genes which make up his pedigree to is offspring.
Sambuco B - Sire of at least 9 approved sons in Germany. Sambuco B was one of the most popular Pinto sires in Germany. He was approved for breeding in Munchen in 1990 and was graded a 1A stallion.

His overall score was 160.2 which earned him A level status with KWPN. Not only has Samber proved himself in competition but he has shown himself to be very prolific in the breeding shed as well. His son, West Star ridden by Nina Melkonian has shown tremendous talent and results in eventing. Art Deco, owned by Liz Hall has reached Grand Prix in dressage.

Mahdi was well known for producing excellent sport horses who excelled in all disciplines. Mahdi was very popular as a producer of talented riding horses for all disciplines and overall high quality breeding stock

Some of his most notable offspring are: Lugana 1988 South Korean Olympic medal winner for dressage and state stud stallions Lombard and Leubus. Lugano II is also found in important pedigrees of popular modern stallions like Contucci.
Maharadscha Maharadscha was very important to the Trakehner breed as a grandson of the extremely significant Arabian stallion Fetysz. The Arabian bloodlines added refinement and beauty to the breed. Maharadscha was said to be, "extraordinarily beautiful, expressive stallion with Arabian stamp, but in a large format. Very pretty face, much neck, thoroughly sufficient girth; the way of going is elastic and swinging; the stallion shows the best inclination for riding." In 1962, Maharadscha won Second Prize at the DLG Exhibition in Munich. Maharadscha was the sire of 11 graded sons and 82 stud book mares, including German Elite mare ABIZA (dam of ABDULLAH).

His sons, Flaneur in the Trakehner books and his full brother, Mahdi, in the Bavarian breed, were his most influential sons.
Sergius - Sergius, the son of the legendary Hanoverian stallion Senator, was known for producing internationally successful Jumpers.
Der Löwe - Der Löwe was in his time the best Thoroughbred stallion used in German breeding, producing especially good dressage horses as well as cross-country horses. He was only 15.2 hh and was fine boned but his offspring were excellent sport horses. Twelve of his son's were approved stallions the most important being Lugano I and Lugano II who went on to found their own line; with Lugano II presently having the most influence through his grandson Lanthan. In all Der Löwe produced six state stallions, 158 registered mares and 314 competition horses with winnings of about DM 750,000. Der Löwe was considered the most important Thoroughbred of his generation and in the early 80s there were ten of his grandsons or great-grandsons at the Celle State stud. Der Löwe probably has had more lasting influence in Belgian jumping breeding where his grandson, Lugano van la Roche has been a major sire. Der Löwe was put down at the age of 29 and his skeleton is preserved in the Verden horse museum.
Landeck- Landeck was a very important damsire. He is the damsire of Lombard and also the Trakehner stallion Absatz through the mare Landmoor.

In Hanover, he is the sire of such great breeding stallions as Duft I, II, Duden I, II, Durban, Dunkel, Derby, Dezember and Davos. Even with all of these great stallions coming from this magnificent stallion, it is unusual for his genotype to be in the paternal line. It is most often found in the maternal line of horses today which is a great pity because it means that this line will soon be lost. One of the most exemplary pedigrees of which Duellant is the damsire is of Grande with Duellant being the sire of the State Premium mare Duellfest, Grande's dam. "With Grande you would say he is by a showjumper out of a dressage mother line, and yet he was a genius as a stallion."
Domspatz- From Duellant's sire comes the stallion Dollart who founded another branch of the D-Line. This branch was known for producing mainly show jumpers. The two best stallions from this line are Domspatz and Don Carlos. Domspatz is the greatgrandsire of the Hanoverian stallion Diamond Spots who has had a very successful career in Dressage. He is also the damsire of Grandom an Elite Hanoverian stallion and successful Jumper.
Famulus- Famulus is son of the influential Arab stallion Fetysz who is the foundation sire of the Famulus Line. Famulus of course is the sire of Maharadscha who produced Mahdi and Flanuer. Flanuer went on to produce the very popular sire Arogno and then grandson Caprimond which are in high demand in the Trakehner stud books.
Marke She was a chestnut mare by Marktvogt, out of Feldrose by Hexenschuss. One of her most important sons was Maharadscha by Famulus, an outstanding producer of riding horses and broodmares as well as being the sire of Flaneur and Mahdi.
Gabriel- Sire of Halali who was a noted riding horse sire. Sire of Garamond who was very important in the development and upgrading of the Rheinland breed. He was also the sire of the mare Morgenster who was very important in the development of the Dutch Warmblood through her two sons, Senator by Paladijn (different from the Hanoverian Senator listed below) who was the grandsire of the great WPN stallion, Nimmerdor. Senator's younger half brother, Sinaeda, by Camillus produced many sons who became approved stallions and his name is found in the pedigrees of many of the top jumpers including Britain's Marius and Apollo.
Senator- Senator founded one of the most important sire lines in jumping. Two of Senator's best sons were Sesam I and Sender. Sesam's famous son Servus is an all-round sire of competion horses. He is the sire of Grand Prix dressage horses Slibovitz, Schiwago and Spartan and was one of the top ten money-earning sires around 1990. He is also the sire of famous jumpers as well with Tric Tac and San Antonio just to name a few. Senator's line is also doing well in Denmark through a mare by the Sender son Seelöwe out of a Der Löwe mare.
