his exceptional jumping ability. He twice competed in the Bundeschampionat

Andretti's dam-sire "Come On" competed at the highest level in
international showjumping for many years and has been ranked #1
in the German National Federation's breeding rankings as a result
of numerous State Premium daughters and approved stallion sons.
The stam 776 line that Andretti comes from has also been responsible
for producing many top stallions including Ramiro, Acorado, Lucky

at a stallion that brings fantastic bloodlines to our breeding
program here in New Zealand. Andretti has the looks, technique
