Franklin with many successful offspring

Franklin equitour alm

Pictured: Betina Jæger and Franklin by Ampére/Ferro.

With Helgstrand rider Betina Jæger in the saddle, this stallion has developed quite exceptionally. The beautiful paces and sublime elasticity as well as the ultra-modern type characterize not only Franklin (Ampére/Ferro) himself, but his offspring as well. At Danish Warmblood licensing shows, foal and mare shows his offspring have shown enormous qualities for the future and several times they have been awarded the highest gradings. And looking at the mares, he sired already 66 mares graded in Danish Warmblood, of which 86% received the highest grading in Danish Warmblood and 17% of these magnificent offspring have received the recognized breeder medal.

Among the successful offspring so far, we have Danish Warmblood Gold Medal Mare and Best Dressage Filly, Faretti DWB by Franklin/Don Frederico (breeder: Henrik Hansen), which was sold for no less than 150,000 euros at the Nordic International Sales auction during the international show Equitour in 2017. Her full-sister Faretti II DWB was sold to the highest price the following year (breeder: Henrik Hansen). At the Danish Warmblood Elite Mare Show this year, Fairy DWB (damsire: Don Romantic, breeder: Lisbeth B. Andersen) and Straight Horse Floriana (damsire: Zack, breeder: Straight Horse) received a silver medal, while Straight Horse Fellini (damsire: Jazz, breeder: Straight Horse) was awarded a bronze medal. Moreover, Francisca Lightfoot (damsire: Michellino, breeder: Stutteri Lightfoot) was awarded a gold medal and crowned Best Dressage Filly in Danish Warmblood.

Franklin also sired Fair Deal (damsire: Fürstenball, breeder: Gestüt Lewitz), which is part of the 2021 Helgstrand-Schockemöhle stallion collection, Franklin's Love PS (damsire: Sandro Hit, breeder: Gestüt Lewitz) and the KWPN Vice Champion Stallion Kadans (damsire: Jazz, breeder: G.J. Rijper), licensed in Danish Warmblood Franzé (damsire: Sezuan, breeder: Henrik Hansen), the winner of Aage Ravn's Trophy Slangerupgaard’s Flottenheimer (damsire: Scolari, breeder: Slangerupgaard), Straight Horse Finest Hour (damsire: Zack, breeder: Straight Horse) and Fendi (damsire: Diamond, breeder: Danish Derby Horse Shows), who is extremely successful under Sönke Rothenberger.

At the Danish Equestrian Federation’s Championship Finals next week, several Franklin offspring will compete, including Faretti DWB and Slangerupgaard’s Flottenheimer.

KWPN Champion Stallion Franklin supremely won his stallion performance test in 2013, while in 2015 he participated at the prestigious World Championships for Young Dressage Horses. Since then, he has achieved great results at small tour level with Helgstrand rider Betina Jæger and is getting ready for his Grand Prix debut.
