At his 2012 grading, Utah
was the first addition to the ranks of British-bred Trakehner stallions
for several years and we were touched by the genuine enthusiasm from
judges and onlookers alike. He impressed the judges with his correct
conformation, correct and energetic paces, brilliant jumping and
exceptional temperament. In 2013 he began his work under saddle and
continued to impress, both in 4 year old eventing classes and
completing his Performance Test at Class 1 Elite with an all-time
record score. After a successful eventing season with placings at
BE100, his work at home shows an easy charm and confidence that holds
great promise for the future. In 2015, a Utah-sired pure-bred filly took second place to the eventual Champion Foal at the Annual Trakehner Show.
After considerable interest in 2016 and 2017, Utah foals were expected
from as far afield as Teesside, and his foal out of Hannibal's senior
premium-graded daughter was 2019 Foal Champion.
Utah’s sire Contis contributes charm, refinement, quality and performance from his sire Interconti (by the influential Consul out of a mare by the important dressage sire Mahagoni) and his dam sire Michelangelo,
a highly significant sire in several studbooks and disciplines of ride
able and elegant horses with excellent temperament and paces.
Utah’s dam Elite Mare Godington Uppsala carries the tremendous performance influence of Godington Stud’s foundation sire Roland, together with the important contributions of Handstreich and Karneol through her dam Ublah, a former TBF Supreme Champion. Uppsala herself has produced two Premium and Champion mares in addition to Utah, all three from different stallions.
