By Don Laurie x Donnerwerther x Elcaro x Nooitgedacht.
Born 2005. Deceased 2008.
Registered by the KWPN.
Breeder: Morningside Stud.
Anika M2S is line-bred to the great dressage sire Donnerhall and the great thoroughbred sire Lucky Boy, and the dam-line has produced good national-level dressage and showjumping horses.
Sire: Don Laurie is a very exciting young sire by the top German Grand Prix competitor and sire Don Schufro, holder of the #1 position in the German dressage breeding index in recent years. Don Schufro is a son of the great Donnerhall and his motherline is world-famous. Don Laurie's dam is by the most important thoroughbred in dressage breeding, the great Lauries Crusader xx, producer of international Grand Prix progeny in the first generation and sire of a large number of approved sons and excellent broodmares. And Don Laurie's dam Laura is a half-sister to the great dressage progenitor Weltmeyer.
Dam: Chanel m2s was a young Danish Warmblood mare that produced before her death the gelding Zero Hour M2S (by Wyclef Jones) and Anika M2S. Her sire Donnerwerther was Vice-Champion of the German stallion test. His sire Davignon I is a leading dressage sire and his sire Donnerhall is a breeding legend. Donnerwerther's dam Wakanda is a full-sister to the approved stallion Wishing Well. Chanel's dam is Koko F, a KWPN Ster mare that competed in dressage in the Netherlands as a five-year-old. She is the dam of the 2004 geldings Zeitgeist M2S (owned by Morningside Stud) and Zeitgeist II M2S (owned by Irish international rider Greg Broderick), twins conceived through embryo transfer. Her sire Elcaro is highly-rated and, like his sire Zeoliet and grand-sire Ramiro, produces both international showjumpers and dressage competitors. Koko's dam Fidelity W also produced Jyfarro (a full-brother to Koko F, he competed at Z1 level dressage and L-level showjumping) and Malimba (a mare with the Sport-Dressage predicate awarded by the KWPN that competes very successfully at Z2 and National ZZZ level in dressage). Fidelity's dam Welmoed (a Ster mare) produced the dressage gelding Exquisite W (Z2 level and National LT level dressage), the Ster mare Gosita H (M level showjumper), the gelding Hamilton (L level showjumper), the gelding Irus H (B level dressage and L level showjumper), and the Ster mare Kelmoed (M2 level and National ZZZ level dressage). Welmoed's dam Rosita, a Keur Preferent mare, produced the Ster mare Welmoed, the Ster Preferent Prestatie mare Zamorka, the gelding Arabescato (B level dressage and ZZ level showjumper), and the stallion Climax who was selected for the stallion performance test.
