In 2021, he was bronze medalist of the 4-year-old stallions at the Bundeschampionate in Warendorf.  There judge Gerd Sickinger described him as "a modern riding horse and a stallion with nobility, frame and uphill tendency".

His half brother Damon de Luxe OLD, born 2013, by Damon Hill is successful in advanced (S*) level dressage competitions with Kim Sarah Kleis in the saddle. Total McLaren produced the well-selling foals Teseo (by Total McLaren - De Niro) and Tribeca NY (by Total McLaren - For Romance I) at the Oldenburg Autumn Elite Auction.

Total McLaren has an important grand dam: Silberaster OLD. The Sandro Hit daughter was champion mare at the Elite Mare Show in Rastede in 2006 and won the gold medal at the Bundeschampionat of three-year-old riding horses in the same year and repeated her success at the same place as a four-year-old.
