Sagnol (Sandro Hit/Landadel) is a very modern type stallion who is not only extremely well bred, but is also an outstanding individual on his own merit.  He is a strikingly beautiful stallion with three outstanding gaits and superior athletic ability.  Sagnol was bred at the top Stud Farm Zuchthof Helle and stood two seasons at Ludwig Kathmann stallion station in Holtrup, Germany before being imported to North America in 2006. Sagnol’s first foal crop was very well received in Europe and his foals been stamped with very modern type, very beautiful faces and necks, correct conformation, elastic and athletic movement.

Another cross between a Rubinstein I mare and a Sandro Hit/Landadel stallion produced a foal in Europe that was the highest priced foal at the esteemed 2006 Spring Hanoverian Auction in Verden and sold for $26,000 Euro!
