Eurosport Centavos (Escudo I/Argentinus) B. HEINZ SCHUETTE, Germany.
The Hay family imported Centavos as a young colt from Germany. Claudia Hay has patiently developed him over time and in 2015 he won the Olympic Cup at the Horse of the Year Show in Hastings. They went on then to represent New Zealand in the Nations Cup Team in Wellington, Florida. Subsequently he returned to NZ via Kentucky – where he was approved for licensing in Oldenburg, SBS and Hanoverian Studbooks. He had some time off after his return then in 2018 Claudia returned to the competition arena – with just 3 World Cup rounds, rode in the final and came 6th in the class and 9th overall. He jumped in the Olympic Cup at the Horse of the Year show in March where he came a very close 6th and in spring 2019 he has had just one World Cup start where he came 3rd.

During the 2015 tour with Dr Ludwig Christmann saw a selection for Centavos foals and declared them very typey and correct.
His progeny are doing him proud in show jumping and eventing and whilst not all Hanoverian registered – due to the timing – they need to be celebrated along with him as he started another season here in New Zealand as a World Cup competitor and as an ESNZ Show jumping Development squad member. Claudia has recently pulled out of the squad due to busy Stud and riding commitments. Progeny – would have been eligible for registration had he been licensed – and many are also related to or out of Hanoverian studbook mares - horses that are in the Studbook.
