In the pedigree of Spartscus we get to see an accumulation of the very best Hannovarian jumping blood. His sire Stakkato is busy making a successful international career ridden by Eva Bitter and he is ?eye catching? as a sire of international showjumpers. Damsire Grannus belongs to the ?all time greats? of the ?stamping stallions? within the European breeding. Via the combination of Stakkato and Grannus the jumping blood of both Gotthard and Goldfisch II respectively are three and five times firmly anchored in both son and daughter. Jumping ability in the damline of Spartacus is likewise firmly attached. In combination with Acorado I the dam Galina produced the international showjumper Elton John who was very successful with Hergen Forkert. Subsequently the pedigree goes back via the lines of the stallions Colorado x and Granit to the mare Wartburg who also performed very successfully in the international jumping arena herself under the name of Welfengl?ck ridden by Hermann Schridde. The offspring of Wartburg includes the famous sporting stallion Lasangos (Latus I) of Prinses Haya.
In 2008 the stallion Spartacus was very successful at M level ridden by Hanno Ellerman. At the World Championships in Lanaken they earned themselves a very prestigious 10th place. Spartacus also jumped phenomally in the KWPN stallion competion in Roosendaal ensuring a victory when ridden by Hanno Ellerman.
