Graf Top II

(Graf Granus/Calypso/Gotthard)
16.2H, bay Hanoverian stallion.


GTVolkerGraf Top II’s pedigree contains the finest jumping blood available in Hannover today. Graf Grannus (9th in the Top List Jumping Index) has an excellent character and well-above-average ability in all disciplines. Grannus, a legend in his own lifetime, was a successful show jumper to the advanced level. Calypso II carries his sire’s rideability, good character, phenomenal jumping ability, and perfect bascule. Graf Top I , fourth on the index of top jumpers for 2002, is siring top jumpers in Germany. His licensed son Gray Top is the latest jumper sensation. The dam of Graf Top II is a full sister to the dam of the Celle stallion, Laptop. The grandmother of Graf Top II and the mother of Spartan are full sisters.

In 2001 and 2002, Graf Top II competed in Training and First Level Dressage, qualifying both years for the CDS Championship Dressage Show with scores in the 70s and winning 2nd place nationally in the USDF Vintage Cup Award. He has received scores of “9” for his gaits. He competed in Level III jumping in 2002. His foals have won many premium awards and are described by the commissions as elegant, athletic, and show excellent movement and natural jumping ability.

Graf Top’s brother, Graf Top, is the second highest valued jumper horse producer in Germany. According to the Hanoverian breed value estimation, Graf Top by Graf Grannus, standing at stud at the breeding station Süstedt of the State stud Celle, made the largest leap forward with a score of 171, largely because of his offspring presented for participation at Verden’s auction program.

Until now, more descendants were presented for auctions than for mare performance tests. In the pedigrees of Stakkato and Graf Top as well as in the pedigree of the also highly valued sire Laptop, we find the dam Steingilde by Steinpilz, the founder of an incredibly strong performance line. The quality of the inheritable traits of the sire Graf Grannus is clearly visible, which not only placed Graf top in the top list, but also the debutantes Ginsberg and Goodman.

Stakkato’s Highlight, Graf Top II’s half-brother, won the 70-day test in Neustadt/Dosse with highest scores. This is posted from an article in the 2008 Spring Edition of the German Hannoveraner Magazine.

The top-10 chart is displayed below for stallions that were used in 2003, with a jumping index of 120 points. See detail below chart for explanation of column information.
