His Comments from German Trakehner Stallion Book:
Very solid and a little coarse in his overall expression, reminding one of his sire Ginster; the voluptuously muscled, deep and broad body is based on four strong legs; in spite of his caliber, the stallion has sufficient significance; his movements are rhythmical and light-footed. A strengthening stallion with a remarkable jumping talent.
