    I would say they are not yet out regarding 2012 as the recording years ends at 30.09.

    Do they have the same rankings for Jumping and Eventing? I looked on the website; but since I have no German, I had no idea how to find them if they exist.

    Merry Christmas. If I am seeing this correctly, Wild Dance with 145 is one of the highest if not the highest ranked stallion standing in the US. Quite a feat with so few offspring.

    It's a pretty cool resource to have for breeding purposes/stallion selection - even though it's not only about playing the numbers...

    On the Breeding Value with a 70-79% Security these stallions are available by frozen semen. (apologies for any omissions or errors)
    Welt Hit IV (162), Rosandro (158), Furst Nymphenberg (155), Sarkozy (155), Balletmeister (151), Briar (149), Rosentanz (149), Freestyle (147), Don Ricoss (143), Sinatra Song (138), Christ (137) - of those I think Freestyle is the only fresh option.
    Diamonit I, Farewell III and Donnerbube III are on this list but I'm not sure if they're available for import/standing at stud.

    80-89% Security Group
    Jazz (170), Breitling (164), Damsey (160), Bennetton Dream (156), Hampton (156), Samba Hit II (152), Danone II (151), Rhodes Scholar (deceased) (151), Krack C (151), Furst Romancier (150), Locksley I (149), Silberschmied (148), Blu Hors Romanov (148), Soliman du Hus (148), First Dance (147), Wild Dance (145), and Contucci (142). There are also some Trakenhers that I'm not sure about availability - Le Rouge (147), Kaiser Karl (147) and Imperio (142). Locksley, Wild Dance and Contucci are available fresh.

    In the 90-99% Security group
    Don Schufro (170), Londontime (169), Dancing Dynamite (162), Sir Donnerhall I (160), Lord Loxley I (157), Dancier (155), Sansico (155), Belissimo M (153), Scolari (153), Don Primero (152), Diamond Hit (151), Hofrat (150), San Remo (149), Don Romantic (149), Florencio (149), Quaterback (149), Wolkentanz I (148), Dimaggio (147), Donnerball (147), Furst Piccolo (147), Weltmeyer (146), His Highness (145), Hotline (144), Royal Blend (144), Hohenstein (143), Desperados (143), Don Frederico (143), Dressage Royal (143), Romancero H (142), Samba Hit I (142) and Fidertanz (142).

    Romancero H is the only one that I know of as being available via fresh semen in the US.

    Tht is the statistical security of the breeding index.

    The higher the percentage the more likely the ranking is accurate. The more competition info the higher the percentage.

    in any case, statistics are statistics and only as valuable as we understand to read them.
    don't get mislead (or euphoric) by individual rankings in the first place, most important so when stallions are of younger age with not enough elder progeny under saddle.
    ZWS is made up by various factors. selfperformance and progeny performance make a difference. the lesser the basis of progeny performance due to age the higher the relative value of selfperformance in thisstatistic. this is where accuracy percentage comes to play.
    stallions of low progeny numbers whose progeny is mainly in professional hands show record results - but are meaningless if you know how to read them (knowledge of data base/individual horses).
    most prominent example couple of years ago was breitling.
    few horses under saddle, all of them by the wittig family (who are exceptional trainers). breitling was a shooting star in the ZWS with a handful of progeny only but all of them very succesful.
    what does such ZWS top ranking tell you about the breeding value of the stallion?
    nothing.
    but if you know the respective progeny under saddle it tells you all about the trainers.

    you need to really question the ZWS year by year regarding a few factors:

    1. if there is a strong self performance value of the stallion, who is the rider?
    if the stallion is shown by super professional this part of the formula is meaningless. however, it is of strong influence to the ZWS in all.
    if the stallion is ridden by a less influential rider or bearly shown in sport at all but still pops up among the top ranking in a lesser top group (70-80 or 80-90) but of valuable accuracy (90%+) this is of higher value than i.e. damon hill and his ranking given his intl sport value counts big times.
    KNOW their progeny in person!

    2. overvaluation of young horse performance classes.
    contrary positioon to the breitling example.
    many "hot" young stallions have bred more than 200/300 mares in their first few years. statistically, the necessary "density" of underlying progeny is given (numberwise). however, nature of the statistic has it that with younger stallions younger progeny's success is shown in young horse dressage classes.
    how are these made up?
    spectacularity counts big times as it does impress judges but says nothing about relyable dressage horse abilities when it comes to collective work.
    spectacular trotters in the first place.
    there are some younger stallions in top positions whose breeding value i stronlgy question. their progeny comes along impressive but in many cases doesn't make it beyond L/M level in wider depth.
    these stallions will loose their high rankings in due course as with age the relative proportion of young horse class vs "real" dressage success (M, S and beyond) becomes more meaningful and if they don't deliver (produce) accordingly, usually this dilutes the breeding value to a more realistic ranking.
    KNOW their individual progeny!

    3. continouity/sustainability counts.
    check various ZWS from the last years and check the tendency of stallions remaining in their group.
    breitling i.e.
    with slightly more progeny and not all ridden by the wittigs anymore all of the sudden his top position suffers.
    there is reason for that.
    sandro hit.
    doesn't show up anymore in leading positions.
    on the other hand:
    don schufro. in the lead for more than 10 years now.
    and he didn't even breed that much in germany given his high fees and lower availability (semen available only 3x a week).
    yet, he still shows up in that position for many years and truly overcame his sire donnerhall with respect to sustainability.

    if you don't have the chance to watch any given's stallion's progeny under saddle, if you don't know the quality of their rider, if you are unaware of how little or much they bred at all always look at former ZWS and compare indvidual stallion position to how they did in the past - to their good or their bad.

    and even than the statistic only gives you a hint. but it does not necessarily hint you to a realistic breeding value.
