The 2016 Westfalian reserve licensing champion Zoom (by Zack x Don Schufro) was the only colt to receive a premium label at the 2016 Hanoverian Late Licensing and approval of young colts and older stallions in Verden, Germany, on 13 December 2016.
No less than 53 stallions were entered to be present at this late licensing and 29 of them were accepted for breeding for the Hanoverian and Rhinelander society. Three did not show up, including Buenos Dias (by Bordeaux x Don Kennedy)
Two colts were proclaimed premium stallion: the 2016 Westfalian licensing champion in jumping Karajan (by Kannan x Verdi) and the 2016 Westfalian Reserve licensing champion Zoom (by Zack x Don Schufro).
The Bundeschampion Don Martillo (by Don Juan de Hus x Benetton Dream) was approved.
Lynne Crowden's British bred Franz Ferdinand (by Furst Heinrich x Dimaggio) was rejected. Also Titolas (by Totilas x Stedinger), who won the 14-day stallion performance testing in Schlieckau, was not accepted for Hanoverian breeding.
