Louise Broadley of Honey Locust Farm lost her gray Hanoverian stallion Graf Genius (Graf Sponeck-Tarah/Trapper) to colic in mid-March. A Jumper Breeding Program sire, he was bred in Germany by Hans-Hermann Schroeder and was 17 years old.

In 1994, Graf Genius was the Colt Champion at Dressage at Lexington. He won the Three-Year-Old Colt class at the NCDCTA breed show, receiving an 8 from Hilda Gurney for conformation. He also won the Three-Year-Old Colts Under Saddle class at NCDCTA and placed fourth in the Stallion Class at Devon. Graf Genius completed the 100-Day Test in 1995, earning an overall score of 126.87 and showed through Fourth Level in dressage.

His first foals were registered in 1995. He currently has 59 AHS foals with 11 Main Studbook mares (including EMCs Graffini Grace, Goodness Grace, and Graffini Garnet), and one mare each in the Studbook and Pre-Studbook.

-I did some looking around today and really don't think that Graf Genius and Graf George are related. Booo. I wanted my baby to have two famous relatives ;)
