His heavy breeding schedule only allowed for sporadic appearances at shows but when he competed, he always took home a ribbon.
His sire, Contender, is one of the world's leading jumper-makers. The life-time earnings of Contender offspring such as the double European Champion, Montender ridden by Marco Kutscher, the two-time Riders Tour winner, Checkmate, and the three-time Derby winner, Collin ridden by Toni Hassmann, were up to 3.9 million Euro by 2006.
