Tolegro, a son from the first crop of the record World Champion in dressage, Totilas, placed with the best in tests for young riding horses and dressage horses, confirming his outstanding riding horse qualities, which he has already demonstrated spectacularly at his 30-day test in Schlieckau in 2014.
The first foals, sired by Tolegro, were born in 2015 and could more than fulfil the high expectations: beautiful and long-legged types, which were often awarded a premium and sold at the Elite foal auction in Vechta.
Tolegro is a discovery of the international Grand Prix rider Bernadette Brune, who took this shiny black stallion already as foal, originating from the dam line of Valegro's sire Negro.
The sire Totilas electrified and dominated the dressage scene like no other. In 2009, he won double gold under Edward Gal/NED at the EC in Windsor/GBR and triple gold at the WEG in Kentucky. Furthermore, the crown could not be taken away from him any more at the World Cup final in ’s-Hertogenbosch/NED. After moving under the saddle of Matthias Alexander Rath he added team silver at the EC in Rotterdam/NED in 2011 and double gold at the 2012' German Championships in Balve as well as Grand Prix victories in Aachen, Perl-Borg, Kapellen/BEL and Wiesbaden in 2014, before he retired from sport in 2015, right after taking the team bronze medal at the EC in Aachen.
Dam is the ster-mare Tewri. With the stallions Krack C and Ferro further internationally dressage sport-tested top performers follow on the side of the dam's sire.
The granddam pref Leandra produced the licensed stallion A Big Pleasure (by Aachen), the both medium (M) level dressage horses Useful and VIP (both by Polansky) as well as the successful show mare Wild Pleasure (by Jazz), who herself was dam of the licensed Dark Pleasure (by Ufo).
Great granddam keur pref prest Equador, who competed successfully in dressage up to medium (M) level, delivered the medium (M) level dressage horses Karanza (by Ferro), Matura (by Zeolit) and Utah (by Metall).
The stallion Negro, sire of the Olympic winner, World and European Champion Valegro/Charlotte Dujardin/GBR, as well as the sport horses Uddel/Paul Estermann/SUI, Suleika/Luiz Francisco De Azevedo/BRA, Opala/Hilde Woudstra/NED and Orlana/Arzu Komili/TUR originate from the Dutch dam line (Merrielijn 256, fokfamilie 505).
