Banderas attended the 70-day North American Stallion Performance Test in the fall of 2010 and finished 4th overall with rather impressive scores: Character 10, Temperament 9, Willingness to Work 9.5, Constitution 9, Rideability 8.5, Free Jumping 9, Stadium Jumping 9, Cross-Country 8.5, Walk 9, Trot 7.5, Canter 8. He is the first fully approved son of Balou du Rouet standing in North America with lifetime breeding approvals.

Banderas is a very typey, athletic stallion, with lovely expression, and clearly stamped in looks by his sire. He has three very good athletic gaits, and shows tremendous jumping potential, jumping with classic form, and a lot of scope. He also has a very good temperament and good nature.

Sire Balou du Rouet is highly sought after as a breeding stallion and is known for producing elastic movers of good type. His oldest offspring are showing his prepotency for passing on first class jumping ability.

Banderas comes from a very strong dam line through his dam, Grisette, who combines some of the best bloodlines available. His dam sire is the legendary Grannus, one of Germany's greatest sires with over 5 million DM in earnings. He is also the sire of multiple international and Olympic jumpers, including Top Gun La Silla (Jan Tops), Grand Plaisir (Ludger Beerbaum), Grannusch (John Whitaker), Burmah Grand Slam (Nick Skelton) and Imperial, to name a few. Grannus has also sired over 60 approved stallions.

Great grandsire is the Elite international stallion, Beach Boy, who has sired eight graded sons who are already making a name for themselves and his own progeny includes the 1991 Oldenburg performance test champion, Brandenburger, the international showjumper, Beach Game, and the international eventers, Beach Star, and Feldschwalbe. His 8 approved sons and 239 competitive offspring have earned him a BLUP score of 141 for both jumping and gaits.
