The 4-year old Flashbang and the 5-year old Dimaggio Black became the high scoring stallions in the sport test held in Munster-Handorf on 31 January - 2 February 2021. 

Twelve 4-year olds and fourteen 5-year olds participated. As there is no longer a threshold score to pass the test, all stallions that participated keep their licensed status. Like this the studbooks leave it up to the market/commerce to decide which stallions will be bred to and which not.


In the 4-year old division the Westfalian registered Flashbang (by Furst Jazz x Sir Donnerhall) became the top scorer with 8.84 points. Bred by Clemens Renvert and presented by Franka Loos, the stallion scored 8.5 for walk, 9 for trot and canter, 8.8 for rideability and 9 for general impression. The stallion is owned by Nils Kramer. Flashbang was presented at the 2020 KWPN Stallion Licensing but rejected. According to Horses.nl because he did not move uphill enough with an engaged hindleg. In October 2020 he was licensed at the Westfalian stallion licensing.

The Hanoverian bred Frankie Lee (by Franziskus x Spörcken) achieved the second highest total with 8.74 points. He scored 8.4 for walk, 8.8 for trot, canter and rideability and 9.0 for general impression. The horse is owned by Eugene Reesink. 

The third best scoring stallion was Bitcoin (by Bon Coeur) with a total of 8.32 points. He received 8 for walk, 8.4 for trot, 8.2 for canter, and 8.5 for rideability and general impression.
