About Million Dollar

Stood by the Holsteiner Verband, Million Dollar provides the breeders with an extraordinary option.

Under the saddle of Sophie Hinners he clearly demonstrated his potential over the 2022 season and wowed the crowds with his special charisma and quality jumping. The stallion displays the colourful markings of his sire Plot Blue. His movement is very good, with an outstandingly consistent walk, very forward and ground-covering, a trot with good knee action, and a very efficient, powerful and well-carried canter. His jumping is more than convincing, extremely careful, with a good bascule, an excellent push-off and the ability to be expected from his bloodline. 

Considerations for breeding

This sire has proven everything with his own performance. By now, his offspring demonstrate their quality in competition, making him the current figurehead of the Elmshorn stallion stable. Take care to breed him to rather leggy mares. He reliably passes on his jumping qualities as well as his impressive personality along with his performance attitude which makes him easy to handle by any rider.

His third dam, Wallon de Muze, used to be a successful sport horse (1.60m) with Michel Hécart, same as her full sister, Walnut de Muze, with Harrie Smolders. The fourth dam, Qerly Chin by Chin Chin, was successfully shown at international level by Eric Lamaze.
The family of Million Dollar is described as follows by their founder, Joris de Brabander: “The horses from this mare family have good looks and good movement. They are easy to ride and have been demonstrating their sport performance potential at international level over generations.”

Own Performance of Million Dollar 

He was 30-day tested in Schlieckau in December 2015 where he scored 8.25 on rideability and 9.75 on jumping ability. He has been approved for the Holsteiner breeding programme at the Elmshorn licensing in January 2016. 
Million Dollar passed his Münster-Handorf stallion sport test with flying colours. In terms of scores it meant 8.8 on ability and overall impression, 8.5 on rideability and technique, and 8.3 on canter, with a weighted final score of 8.57. 
Four- to six-year-old, Million Dollar became a serial winner in young horse jumping classes through M level under Ebba Johansson. For further training, he came to the stable of Jos Lansink to be shown by Frank Schuttert (NED). Having been well-produced and selectively shown at international level, he returned from Belgium with placings up to 1.45m to join the stable of Sophie Hinners. For the visitors of their first outings in Kronenberg and Opglabbeek is was very obvious that this combination is a successful one. Wins and placings in three-star-rated Nations Cups with the German team in Mannheim (2nd), Bratislava (1st) and Budapest (1st) crowned the season for this exceptional pair.  
Unfortunately, a hernia put an end to Million Dollar’s showing season already in late July 2022. Million Dollar has recovered well and is stood at Elmshorn where he is available to the breeders through fresh semen in the 2024 breeding season.


Test results

30-Tage-Test 2015 in Schlieckau: Gesamt 8,43; ZW-Dres. 86 (+5); ZW-Spr. 126 (+22)

Offspring of Million Dollar 

 

Million Dollar’s first offspring are seven this year and wow breeders, riders, and owners. His daughter Kalifa (Sophie Hinners), the 2022 Warendorf National Champion found new owners through the PSI auction sale in December, where she was knocked down at 500,000 euros. His successful offspring have put Million Dollar on top of the six-year-old sport horse Hippomundo ranking. From 360 starts, 46 percent of his offspring have returned with a placing – by international comparison, a very good ratio, indeed.  
As yet, Million Dollar has had twelve sons licensed for breeding in Germany, including the second reserve champion of the 2019 Holsteiner grading, Milbridge, and Million's Way, a stallion also stood by the Elmshorn stallion stable.
His offspring sold through the 2023 auctions include Massimo (out of a Cormint dam), a top horse knocked down to China for 77,000 euros at the elite auction.
