Quattro is a son of the Selle Francais stallion Qredo de Paulstra, winner of the Grand Prix of Bordeaux. Qredo is sired by the legendary Galoubet, which two times won World Cup Qualifiers and produced international jumpers such as Quick Star and Quatoubet de Rouet. Grandfather Almé is even more famous with his offspring Jalisco B. and I Love You. At the other side of Qredo we find Furioso xx; father of Lutteur (Gold Medallist Tokio) and Le Tyroll; father of Rocket of Janou Lefebvre. Quattro himself is out of the famous line of Kermesse. Quattro himself was 2nd in the Performance Test at Medingen with a high score of 130 pnts. And in 1994 he was Reserve Champion of the Oldenburg Körung, based on his performance test and his first offspring.
Quattro jumped very well in 1996 with his rider Gilbert Böckmann and they won more than 20 1.30 courses through the summer. Meanwhile Quattro jumps at the international circuit successfully, including second in the Grand Prix of Emsbüren, Kiel and Bremen. He was also succesfull in Caen, Leeuwarden, Berlin, Munich and Geneva. His first offspring show spectacular gaits but they also inherited Quattro’s beautiful type and free jump very well.
Since 1997 Quattro has more than 10 approved sons; Quando Quando, Quantes, Quatier Latin, Quell Charmeur, etc. Quattro’s offspring Quando Quando, Much Ado and Quantum Tyme are famous in Grand Prix dressage. Quattro remarkably had two children qualified for the Olympics in Athens 2004; Quando Quando for dressage and Oliver Q for jumping! Quicksilber won the gold medal at Lanaken in 2005 with the Spanish rider Manuel Fernandeze Saro and Suzie Quattro with Luciana Diniz and Quanta Costa from Rolf-Göran Bengtsson both jumped succesfully in 2005.
Akzent II was bred by Joachim Kemmer, father of German dressage team rider, Heike, and stood at the family stud, Amselhof, and then on lease at the Celle State stud in Altenbruch before coming to the Oldenburg stallion station of Ludwig Kathman in 1985.
Akzent II was prized for carrying on the ‘type’ of the Trakehner Absatz: a noble head and appealing face, ideal neck and saddle position and a good shoulder, combined with a light-footed way of going. His dam was by the Thoroughbred, Waidmannsdank, who was one of the most influential Thoroughbreds of the post-war period in Hannover. He was for many years the leading Thoroughbred sire of licensed stallions and head stud book mares, and second only to Der Löwe as a sire of competition horses.
Not surprisingly, Akzent II scored very highly for type and rideability. In the Hanoverian Stallion Yearbook of 2002 (the last in which he appears) he is scored 144 for type putting him into the top ten category based on studbook inspections and 134 for rideability on the basis of the mare performance tests.
By 2002 he had produced 747 competition horses with winnings of DM1,183,852. His most successful competitor was Karin Schlüter’s Amazonas, the winner of the German Dressage Derby in 1987 with winnings of DM98,623, not far in front of Isabell Werth’s Agnelli FRH who won the Otto Lorke prize for Grand Prix horses under 10 years in 2000, and who by 2002 had won DM95,185.
