10 for submission and general impression, 9.8 for trot and 9.5 for walk and canter. With a fabulous 97.6 percent, Global Player was crowned the undisputed king at the World Championships for six-year-old dressage horses in Ermelo/NED. His trainer, Eva Möller, rode the Oldenburg and Danish Champion Stallion, stallion performance test second Reserve Champion, Vice German and Regional Champion, who also came fourth at the World Championships for young dressage horses (5y.o.). Judge Katrina Wüst described the magnificent dark bay stallion as an "incredibly impressive horse", which the spectators celebrated with rhythmic applause as he went down the final centre line. Overtrack, uphill tendency, hindquarter activity, self-carriage, focused on the rider's aids, ... – everything was good, Katrina Wüst emphasised: “A wonderfully fluent test”.

Global Player has presented top-class foals, who have dominated the show grounds and auctions. In his first crop of colts up for licensing, several of his sons were approved, including two premium stallions.

Through his sire Kastel’s Grand Galaxy Win T and his dam, Don Schufro’s daughter Chatel's Schurana, as well as the half-blood Rawage Quintus (by Age xx) in the third generation and the Trakehner Donauwind in the fourth generation, his pedigree combines the best performance lines.

His sire Kastel’s Grand Galaxy Win T, a son of Apache/Emmelie Scholtens/NED, who came eighth at the World Cup, and out of a Jazz dam, was Danish Champion Stallion in 2014, Danish Vice Champion in 2015 and placed finalist of the World Championships for 5-year-old dressage horses in 2016. He is now trained to advanced level. 14 of his sons have been licensed, including our premium stallion Galaxico as well as the premium stallions Hesselhøj Gnags and Giovanni Bell, and the second Reserve Champion of the Oldenburg main premium, Galaxy. His offspring have been placed in competitions for young dressage and riding horses in their age classes. With Got it, Grand Galiano, Logos Gaya and Highfive Fuglsang, he produced Denmark's best young horses in their respective age groups in 2019 and 2020.

His dam Chatel’s Schurana received a silver medal for her test and took part, for Denmark, in the World Championships for young dressage horses in 2007 in Verden. She then started her breeding career.

The dam's sire Don Schufro, Danish Champion and team bronze winner at the 2008 Olympic Games in Hong Kong/HKG with Andreas Helgstrand/DEN, sired numerous successful horses, the most famous being Weihegold OLD/Isabell Werth, Olympic Gold medallist, World Cup winner and European Champion. From 2012 to 2017, and again in 2019, he was amongst the top ten best dressage sires in the world according to the WBFSH ranking. For years, he also dominated the FN breeding valuation.

The Danish half-blood Rawage Quintus (by Age xx) appears in the third generation of the pedigree. The Trakehner Donauwind, in the fourth generation, is considered by experts to be one of the best sires of the post-war period. He stood at stud in Denmark and then in the USA. He produced the show jumping Olympic and World Cup Champion, Abdullah, and the dressage Grand Prix horse, Fabian.

He descends from the original Hanoverian mare line of Williswinda, from which also descend the internationally successful dressage horses Happiness/Isabella Tovek/SWE, Don Corleone/Kathleen Muhr, Radcliffe/Agnete Berger/DEN, Macao/Elizabeth Bortuzzo/USA, Alion/Juan Manuel Vidal/ESP and Angelo/Markus Jungwirth as well as various licensed stallions.
