Sire of the Year 201510-03-2015 - 11:30

The 17-year-old Holsteiner stallion Bøgegårdens Apollo was proclaimed Danish Warmblood Stallion of the Year 2015 

Bøgegårdens Apollo is a 17-year-old Holsteiner stallion by Acord II/Ronald. He was purchased as a 2-year-old colt at his breeders, the Siewertsen family on the German island of Föhr. Theodor Schmidt was the man behind the purchase, the founder of the Danish stallion station Bøgegården which is now run by his son Jørgen Schmidt. Apollo is still stationed at Bøgegården but owned by the internationally successful Danish show jumper Emilie Martinsen who competed the stallion at the Europeans in Madrid in 2011.

One of the successful offspring by Bøgegårdens Apollo is the mare Bøgegårdens Apollonia (dam sire Bøgegårdens Capello) which landed an individual 20th place at the World Equestrian Games in Caen last year, ridden by a 22-year-old rider from Austria.

- Now that Bøgegårdens Apollo has come home to enjoy his retirement we hope the breeders will use him for their mares again. The quality of his offspring is indisputable, said spokesman of the licensing committee Poul Graugaard.
