Holme Grove Solomon, sire of Dynasty, is extremely closely related to the 1976 Champion Stallion in Neumünster Schiwago.
Holme Grove Solomon was a fully performance tested stallion who was competed in Dressage as a five year old gaining 161 points in one season, qualifying for the National Championships at Elementary level and winning at Medium level in his one and only competition in the March as a six year old. HG Solomon was retired to stud early due to serious illness of his rider/breeder’s husband. Although after a three year break he spent some winter months training up to Advanced level, he had already shown considerable talent for Piaffe and Passage as a five year old, which he showed during ridden displays in recent years. He is a remarkable stallion who at only 14 years old has already had tremendous successes as a sire.
Shantaram’s dam, Secret Press, was a thoroughbred mare with exceptional movement, who competed successfully up to 1.20m.
