Tatendrang is a full brother to the ATA approved Tycoon (now gelded), and is the last approved son of Onassis *E*. Onassis *E* was fully approved and tested in Germany and exported to the US after only a year of stud service in Germany. He has very few, but highly regarded daughters in the Trakehner breed in Europe, among them Premium Mare Indica, the maternal grand dam of the champion stallion, In Flagranti (S level dressage competitor at age 7), his approved full brother, In Petto, and the champion mares, SPS+PS In Zukunft, SPS+PS In Vita, and SPS+PS In Farbe. Onassis is also the dam sire of the CCI*** eventer, Seacookie TSF, who was the 2010 Trakehner Verband Sporthorse of the Year. Onassis’ dam, Ovation, was a foundation mare for the breed and also produced the full sister, Oda II, who in turn is the maternal grand dam of premium stallion, Okavango, and premium stallion, Oliver Twist, who is the sire of the 2007 Neumünster champion stallion, Grand Passion. Also from this smaller family comes the approved CCI*** eventer, Oktavio (Germany).
Dam sire, Avignon II, was a full brother to the breed’s outstanding
major sire, E.H. Arogno, and helped to shape the young Trakehner
breed in North America especially through his high quality
daughters. The stallion line founded by his sire, Flaneur, is one of
the strongest and internationally most recognized lines with
significant influence also in other warmblood breeds.
The dam line of
Tanzania *E* goes back to the original Main Stud Trakehnen mare,
Tapete, (by Pythagoras), whose family is one of the most successful
in the breed today and has branched out into two major lines in
Germany: the Tip-Top – Tilsit III family at Gestüt Panker, which
stands for the stallions E.H. Tambour, Thalys, E.H. Tenor, Travell,
E.H. Tivano and E.H. Tuareg and the Traviata – Tracht line at Gestüt
Birkhausen that produced predominantly excellent show jumpers.
