He established himself easily at the 1.50 m classes and was internationally successful with Andreas Kreutzer. In 2011, they placed with the best in Hanover, Munich, Gera and other sites. Quintender convinces with an enormous willingness to perform, thoroughbred-typed power and exceptional technique.
His first offspring have already achieved high placings up to 1.30 m in classes for youngsters. Quick Shot was licensed in Hanover in 2012. In 2008, Quintender presented the Federal Winner Foal at the German Foal Championship as well as the most expensive foal at an auction that sold for 120,000 Euro in 2008.

Quasimodo’s dam Carla was bought in 2006 as a two-year old in Germany as we were amazed by her elasticity, cadence and attitude at this age. She was inseminated using Quintender semen, but sadly did not produce a foal before leaving Germany. Once in RSA, she has been used as a broodmare, as well as having been backed. Due to the quality and temperament of her foals, she will continue to be used as a broodmare in the stud.

Among Concetto’s foals there were many show winners, also in 2008 at the shows in Donzdorf and Heiligenfeld. In 2004 a Concetto Famos filly took seventh place in the German Foal Championships in Lienen.

Damsire Mytens xx, has recent;y become very popular and desireable in sporthorse breeding.
Mytens was born in the United States and sold to Britain as a yearling. He was very successful in training as a 2 year old and at the start of his 3 year old career until a tendon injury forced his retirement from racing. As a breeding stallion, in 1989/90 he was entered into the stallion competitions and was unique as the only Thoroughbred stallion to have completed all seven competitions including the finals.
Myten’s sire Spectacular Bid xx won 26 of his 30 starts and as a 3 year old and was unbeaten in both the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, but finished third in the Belmont Stakes, just missing victory in the world renowned Triple Crown. He later won the Marlboro and the Meadowlands Cup. He finished his career following an unbeaten season and 4 track records, claimed victory in the California’s Strub series, and the Washington Park Handicap, set a career earnings record, and gained the prestigious title of Horse of the Year. As recognition of his overwhelming career he joined the Hall of Fame in 1982. His pedigree can be traced back via Bold Ruler to the legendary stallions Nasrullah and Nearco.
Mytens dam’s sire Hoist the Flag is one of the more prestigious stallions in the United States.
In 1990 his first yearling fillies came up for inspection and Mytens fillies were successful at 3 provincial shows by taking the reserve champion.
