The trahkener stallion Saint Cloud has been sold to Denmark and is again ready for breeding. The 15-year old black Grand Prix dressage stallion gained international fame under rider Karin Rehbein and was sold to Switzerland in 1999.

There, he competed for a short while under the Swiss Barbara von Grebel, who aimed at competing at the 2000 Olympic Games with him.

Saint Cloud has now permanently moved to Denmark, where he will be ridden by owner Jan Bastrup Pedersen and up for stud at co-owner Niels Gröndal's stallion station Støvring Hingstedeport A/S, Denmark.

Niels Gröndal is a well known Danish horse breeder who marketed stallion such as the Hanoverian Aktuell (by Absatz) and the famous show jumper and Olympic bronze medal winning Lando. Jan Bastrup Pedersen trained Trakehner stallions such as Travell, the most successful Trakehner in Denmark in 2002, and the former German Bundeschampion Induc.

Saint Claud is by Neuquen xx out of St. Pr. St Silke (by Incitatus) and is bred by Martha Haasler. He was reserve champion of the Stallion Licensing in Neumunster in 1990. He went on to become vice champion at the Munchen – Riem stallion performance test in 1991 with an overall rideability score of 153 points and an index of 137,08 points. As a three and four year old Saint Cloud was often successful in conformation show classes.

Saint Cloud will be featured in a special show at the Danish Warmblood Stallion Licensing in Herning March 6 to 9, 2003.
