Super gelding who's sire Sandro Hit is one of the best dressage sires of all times. Sandro Hit was a Bundeschampion and Dressage World Champion. Numerous approved sons, including several champion stallions, 120 state premium mares, eleven Bundeschampions and numerous top auction horses such as licensing champion Soliman de Hus (who sold for EUR 700,000) are all proof of Sandro Hit's exceptional breeding qualities. His daughter Poetin two-times Bundeschampion still holds the all-time auction price record of EUR 2.5 million. Sandro Hit foals and horses are regularly sold at auction for prices in excess of EUR 100,000.

Sandro Hit’s mother, Loretta, is one of the best breeding mares in the world. She produced Grand Prix horse and Vice World Champion Diamond Hit, and premium stallion Royal Hit. Loretta’s sire, Ramino, was five times Italian Show Jumping Champion, and Welt As, Sandro Hit’s maternal great-grandsire, produced Olympic gold medallist Bonfire/Anky van Grunsven.

The dam is With Love who is sired by the Westphalien stallion Freestyle (Florestan) who was awarded a 10 and a 9 for character and temperament in his 100 day performance test at Prussendorf in 1999, his ride ability score was 9.33 and he went on to become the undisputed winner of the test. Freestyle's dam, Paloma, is a State Premium mare, who has produced two graded sons, Freestyle and Flamengold. She is currently the best mare that Hessen has and with her full sisters (all high scoring mares in their mare test), have won the title of "Segerfamilie" for 4 years and have 4 State Premium mares in succession. With Love's dam sire is Jester (Wolfgang). Freestyle is sired by Florestan, who was champion of the 1988 Rhineland approval and the champion of his performance test in Warendorf in 1989. Florestan's offspring include Fidermark, the 4yo champion at the Bundeschampionate; French Kiss who won the World Young Dressage Horse championship for 6 year olds and Florencio - twice World Champion Young Dressage Horse.

Sadly Giles broke his leg in July 2014 and was put to sleep.
