Morricone was the Oldenburg Main Premium winner at his licensing and was praised for his impression and ability. He won the dressage index at the 30-day test in Adelheidsdorf with a final score of 9.33. The judges gave the stunning stallion a 9.0 for his trot and canter and the highest possible score of 10.0 for his walk. Morricone unites an optimum noble and type, striking quality of movements, as well as, brilliant rideability and a strong kind character. In his stallion performance test he won superiorly the dressage part with a score of 9.33 and received the maximum score 10.0 for rideability and walk four times. All basic gaits as well as constitution, character, temperament and willingness to perform were praised with scores of 9.5 and 9.0. On the one hand this noble dancer impresses with three fantastic basic gaits, rhythm and a striking engagement of the hindquarters, but on the other hand is the rideability and the imperturbable strength of character, which is absolutely unique for such a youthful stallion.
In 2019, Morricone made an extraordinary debut in the advanced (S*) class, finishing in fourth place with a 72% in the 2yo Youngster Tour of the K+K Cup qualifier in Muenster. In the final of the Youngster Tour he confirmed his extraordinary performance again with a result of 71% in seventh place. Morricone and his rider, Lena Waldman, placed 2nd in the qualifier for the 2019 German Developing Prix St Georges Horse Championships at the Nuernberger Burgpokal Finals. In the entry exam, they took sixth place with 75.268% to qualify for the final last weekend. In the final, they placed fifth with 75.037%. Earlier this year they were victorious in S*-dressage (advanced level) with 71.5 % at the Berlin-Brandenburg Indoor Championships in Tremsdorf, Germany.
Morricone is the 2014 Oldenburg Champion Stallion and he was met with a standing ovation in Vechta. All three days Morricone captivated spectators and impressed the judges. His Pedigree reads like a picture book as the son of Millenium/T, bred by Heinrich Vahle in Friesoythe, and Morricone offers a quality bloodline that brings Gribaldi and De Niro blood into a modern sport horse. De Niro, the son of Donnerhall, dominated the WBFSH ranking as best sire of the world for years and has left a legacy behind him, while the dam's sire Rubin Royal has produced over 25 approved sons.
Morricone represents the line of the Trakehner top producer Millennium, whose importance has drastically increased over the last years. The trademarks of this line are powerfully moving horses with large bodylines often with dark coats. Here too it is to be expected that numerous representatives of this line will mature fulfilling the demands of the higher levels of the sport of dressage.
"Our Champion Stallion has the most elegance, style and type. With his royal appearance and excellent movement and always in perfect form, this noble black stallion wowed the crowd and the Commission", comments the Oldenburg breeding director, Dr. Schulze Schleppinghoff.
Morricone's offspring exceeded all expectations. They stand out with their beautiful and noble type like they were all of a piece. Many champion foals as well as numerous price-highlights feature prominently well-known elite foal auctions and foal championships worldwide. From his first crop six licensed sons, including two premium stallions in Oldenburg and Hannover, made up a brilliant breeding record for Morricone. Remarkable is the excellent character of his offspring, which present themselves as very drawn to people, with strong nerves and easy to handle.
