Verden. In the festive show program prior to the sales of the dressage stallions a real lady was in the limelight: St.Pr.St. Daylight was awarded Hannoveraner Mare of the Year.
Daylight by De Niro/Weltmeyer was born 20 years ago in the stables of Wilhelm Klausing in St. Hülfe. She was the second foal of St.Pr.St. Wicke by Weltmeyer/Grenadier (dam line of Noria) who was highly awarded at the Federal Mare Show in Neustadt/Dosse. As a three-year-old Daylight was awarded a Ia Prize and a State Premium at the show in Wagenfeld. One year later she passed her mare performance test in Hoya. In this test, she showed not only her very good dressage qualities but also an exceptionally good free jumping ability. In foal to the then young stallion Stedinger, the dark chestnut mare belonged to the collection of the Verden broodmare auction in August 2004 and was acquired by family Brenninkmeyer from Hamburg. So her way led to the Klosterhof in Medingen, where Daylight found her new breeding home. Her first foal, Seline by Stedinger, produced the premium stallion and Hannoveraner Vice-Champion of Riding Horses, Quattroporte, by Quantensprung.
The mating of Daylight to Fidertanz, who moved there in 2005, was particularly obvious at the Klosterhof Medingen. Her most successful offspring are out of this combination. Among them is Fats Domino, born in 2007 and meanwhile winning Grand Prix with Germany’s Fabienne Müller-Lütkemeier. His full brother is Flanell, four years younger, and also grown up at the Klosterhof. He was a premium stallion at his licensing in Verden in 2013 and is now on his way to Grand Prix with rider Kathleen Kröncke. His first offspring are already celebrating success in basic and advanced level tests. In 2016 Daylight gave birth to the Borsalino daughter Hann.Pr.A. Bond Girl. An impressive mare who qualified for the Herwart von der Decken-Show last year via the Lüneburg Elite Championships and was awarded the Ic Prize in a strong class there.
