16.2h | 2008 | Oldenburg Stallion

Quaterback – Dream of Glory – Rubinstein I

Qredit is from the second foal crop of the young sensation Quaterback and was the first Quaterback foal born in the US. Under Christian Flamm, Quaterback was the decisive winner of the 3-year old Bundeschampionat in 2006 earning scores of 9.5 for trot, 10 for canter, 7.5 for walk, 9.5 for conformation, and 9.5 for overall impression. Quaterback then won his 30-day Performance Test with scores of 9 for interior qualities, 9.25 for trot, 9.75 for canter, and 9.75 for rideability.

The sire of Quaterback, Quaterman, qualified three times for the Bundeschampionat and is recognized as a strong producer of movement. His grandsire, Quando Quando, is an international dressage competitor under Kristy Oatley-Nist and competed at the Olympics in Athens. Quaterback’s dam, Passionata, is a ½ sister to Poetin and is by Brandenburger, a performance test winner and Advanced Level showjumper.

At the 2008 Hanoverian Elite Foal Auction, a Quaterback foal sold for 120,000 euros. Quaterback sired both the Champion Filly & Champion Colt at the 2010 German Foal Championships in Lienen. As his oldest offspring started showing under saddle, they have qualified for the Bundeschampionat and the World Breeding Championships.

Bred by Judy Yancey of Florida, Qredit represents three generations of her breeding program and traces back to her foundation Trakehner mare Helena whom she imported in 1977. Qredit’s dam, Dream Rubina, is a Premium Oldenburg mare that is by the Grand Prix stallion Dream of Glory (grandsire to our Grand Prix horse Douglas Hilltop). From the legendary Donnerhall-Pik Bube combination, Dream of Glory proved his value as a breeding stallion siring 4 licensed stallions and over 20 S-level competitors, Bundeschampionat winners, and high-priced auction offspring. Granddam Reina H has produced an impressive 8 Premium offspring with the GOV and is the dam of the licensed stallion Sirringo (Sir Donnerhall).

Qredit was undefeated in-hand at breed shows in 2009 including winning the Grand Championship at Fair Hill, Stone Tavern, and the prestigious Dressage at Devon. For a yearling to show his consistency, composure, quality of gaits, and conformation is indeed a very rare thing and the judges all rewarded him with excellent scores. His median score for the year was an impressive 81.9%.

In August of 2010, at 2 ½ years old, Hilltop Farm presented Qredit to ISR/OldenburgNA and he received his Certified Breeding License and was Champion Stallion of licensing with 225 points overall. He began his under saddle training in the winter and in 2011 was licensed by the GOV, earning scores of 8 for impulsion and elasticity, canter, and general impression as well as the score of 9 for his walk.

As a four year old, Qredit was Reserve Champion at the USEF National Championships and tied for first place for USDF Horse of the Year Awards. In 2013, Qredit made a return trip to the USEF National Championships for the FEI 5-Year Old Championships. Qredit delivered two harmonious tests finish with an overall score of 8.480, putting him in 4th place. Qredit finished the year ranked 3rd in the USDF Horse of the Year standings for FEI 5-Year Olds.  In 2014, Qredit debuted at Third Level earning scores as high as 80% and won the CBLM Third Level Championships.  In 2015, Qredit debuted at Prix St. Georges earning scores as high as 75%. He finished the season with a 7th place finish at the USDF National Championships for Prix St. Georges Open and was 4th for USDF All-Breeds.

The Qredit foals are inheriting their sire’s movement and expression with numerous Premium Foals and Inspection Site Champion awards.  Qalypso CCF earned a score of 87% in her first breed show. The 2014 filly Quartet GSH was named Top Filly at her AHS Inspection and took top honors at Dressage at Devon winning her class with a score of 86% and claiming the USDF/GAIG East Coast Breeders Foal Championship.  Qredit placed second in the highly competitive Get of Sire class at Devon with his offspring scoring an 83.95%.  The oldest Qredit offspring were started undersaddle this year and proved easy and uncomplicated to ride.  In her second outing, Quinzy HTF won the Three-Year Old Materiale at Dressage at Devon with an 80%.

Canadian Breeders Shipping from Moore Equine

To help our Canadian breeders save on shipping expenses and the hassle of getting an import permit, Hilltop Farm ships a limited amount of frozen semen to Moore Equine in Calgary, Alberta at the start of each breeding season for distribution within Canada. We will ship four doses of frozen semen to Moore Equine for each contract booked prior to this group shipment. Doses will be distributed at a max of two doses per cycle. If a mare is not confirmed in foal after utilizing those doses, it would be necessary for the mare owner to follow our typical import procedure to obtain semen for any additional breeding cycles. All shipment requests for semen in Canada will still be sent to Hilltop Farm and follow Hilltop’s standard notification schedule. For more information on deadlines to be included in the group shipment to Canada or to inquire about frozen semen already located in Canada contact Brittany.

Mare Management Reminders

At Hilltop Farm we want to work closely with you and your veterinarian to ensure a successful breeding season and are available for questions at any time. The following information includes some basic suggestions as well as reminders on a few requirements for your breeding contract.

Submit Foal Announcement


A Breeding Soundness Exam including a uterine culture is recommended, but not required, for all mares prior to breeding. If a mare fails to settle after two breeding cycles, Hilltop Farm will require a culture and cytology to be done at that time prior to any additional shipments of semen. We always recommend your vet checking your mare post-breeding to confirm ovulation. If a mare hangs on to a follicle longer than expected, it can be less expensive to ship additional semen than it would be to breed a second complete cycle. Getting your mare settled in foal is just the beginning. We recommend multiple pregnancy checks to help prevent cases of twins, misdiagnosed pregnancies, or lost time in the breeding season. The following schedule is what we recommend; only the first and fourth checks however are required by your breeding contract.
  • 1st check (Required): 14-16 days post ovulation - optimum time for vet to pinch off a twin if more than a single ovulation is noted.
  • 2nd check (Recommended): 28 days post ovulation – to confirm a viable pregnancy as the heartbeat normally appears by day 25.
  • 3rd check (Recommended): 35-40 days post ovulation – to confirm maintained pregnancy prior to endometrial cup formation. Mares that slip foals early may not come back into heat.
  • 4th check (Required): 55-60 days post ovulation – final confirmation of pregnancy in its critical first trimester.
Following your mare’s 55-60 day pregnancy check, please have your vet finish completing the Mare Breeding Passport and return it to Hilltop Farm by September 15th. This Passport is used in all stallion reports to various breed registries and is used to generate a Breeding Certificate so that you can register your foal.

Registration Information

Your mare’s registration and approval play just as important of a role as the stallion’s approvals when determining registration options for your foal. Please keep in mind that in order to register your foal with a specific association, your mare may first need to be presented to that registry for approval. In addition to the registries a stallion is approved with, there may be additional registration options based on your mare’s eligibility and the stallion’s credentials. If you are confused at all on registration options for a potential foal, please speak with Hilltop Farm and your breed registry PRIOR to booking your breeding.
