two of his sons have been invited to take the 70 day grading test. In 2010, an Oscar son
was champion of the stallion selections. Oscar himself, just like his half brother Kimberley,
both are descendants from the famous Rania-stam.

at advanced dressage, as do many of the offspring from this maternal line.
