After the licensing results were announced in Elmshorn on Friday evening, the tension at the Holstein young stallion licensing continued to grow until Saturday morning because, on the final day, the premium stallions and, above all, the champion stallion was awarded.

Bred by Hans Otto Krohn from line 104A, from now on, Corroniolo (Corniolo x Cassini I) can claim this title. The dark bay was exhibited by Tjark Witt from Friedrichskoog.
“A stallion that impressed us right from the start,” said breeding director Stephan Haarhoff on behalf of the commission, alongside Christian Thoroe, Matthias Wittke, and Horst-Klaus Heleine. An ultra-modern horse with a great side view. He also impressed over the jump with his quick reflexes, overview, and unlimited ability – a worthy champion stallion.”

Uluru (Uricas vd Kattevennen x Cormint) became the first reserve champion. Bred by Caroline Kröger from Wakendorf and owned by Manfred von Allwörden: “Uluru is a light, typey, and elastic horse that impresses with outstanding jumping. Standing in the middle frame, the stallion becomes really big at the jump,” said Haarhoff.
Keystone (Keaton x Quinar), bred by Margit Petersen from line 3401), received the sash as second reserve champion. The stallion’s owners are the Sollwitt stallion station and Thomas Petersen (Sollwittfeld). According to Haarhoff; “An outstanding athlete with a lot of cadence who has developed especially positively since the pre-selection and has a highly secure dam line.”
