Susanne Ersil on Royal Blend: The best 4-year old Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2005 was the second best 4-year old stallion in Warendorf. Royal Blend, by Rotspon x Lauries Crusador xx, scored 9s on all sections, except the canter for which he got 8.5.
Wolfhard Witte on Rascalino: Rascalino, also known as Roydorfer (Rotspon x Velten Third), finished fourth and tied with Klosterhof Medingen's Karolinger (Latimer x Hohenstein). Rascalino was one of the few stallions in the award ceremony that kept his cool by not rearing, running away or jumping around.
