At the studbook inspection, Nina VDA scored 75/80 and scored an 8.5 for her trot and was auctioned at the beginning of this year via the Performance Plus Online Auction. Eleksia herself noted a beautiful list of marks at the studbook inspection with  3 x 8 for movement, walk and canter and an 8.5 for her trot.

McLaren is a dynamic, beautiful and movement strong son of the Oldenburg champion stallion and Burgpokal finalist Morricone out of a sire of Sir Donnerhal I - Akzent II.McLaren impresses with his elastic, light-footed movements and impression of the hindleg. Under the saddle he has a lot of balance, go and an uncomplicated, willing character. He completed the KWPN performance test with 83.5 points. In the report, the jury praised his willingness, for which McLaren received a 9. His uncomplicated character and his willingness elicited McLaren's rider during the performance test, Astrid Reinders, the words: "An abnormally sweet stallion!" McLaren received an 8.5 for the walk and also for suppleness, posture and balance and for his talent as a dressage horse. The stallion scored an 8 for his trot and canter.

Last year McLaren was a standout in the dressage arenas. Under Dinja van Liere, the stallion successfully reached the final of the Paco Cup for four-year-old horses. In the preliminary round, McLaren scored 88.8 points and was among the best three tested by guest rider Philipp Hess. Hess was super excited about the feeling McLaren gave him. The Morrico son was the only one to receive the ultimate 10 from Hess! McLaren eventually won silver. He was the best KWPN stallion among the four-year-olds.

Mclaren was also unbeatable in the stallion competitions. With 95 points and 10s for trot and harmony, the stallion became the convincing winner of the first competition. He also won the second game in the hands of Dinja, now with 90 points. The judges of the stallion competitions spoke with only superlatives. They praised not only his movements, but also his willingness to work, harmony and balance.
