The beautiful black pearl Hennessy, initially named Handsome Boy, was champion of the 2015 KWPN Spring Stallion Performance Testing. Out of the original 50 stallion applicants only 4 were licensed, with Hennessy scoring the highest score of 82 points.
Hennessy combines the blood of three legendary stallions: De Niro, Jazz and Ulft. For many years both De Niro and Jazz held WBFSH rankings as dressage stallions. Both performed successfully at Grand Prix level.
De Niro is considered one of Germany's most valuable dressage stallions and is known as the sire of celebrities like Desperados FRH, Delgado, D'Agostino FRH and Glock's Voice.
Grandfather Jazz also needs no introduction. He is reknowned as the father of dressage horses such as Glock's Johnson TN and Jerich Parzival. The latter was born from the proven combination Jazz x Ulft, which also strengthens the Hennessy descent.
His Dam Silhouette (elite preferrent) passed the mare test successfully with an 8 on her canter. Additionally, Silhouette is the full sister of the approved Prix St. George stallion Ragtime ridden by American Christina Robinson.
In addition to many successful dressage horses in the damline, there are also a few international jumpers including the KWPN stallion Engraver in his pedigree.
The titles Keur and Preferrent are generously sprinkled throughout his pedigree.
