History: 

Virgil was Champion of the 1974 Neumünster approvals.  The following year he was Champion of the performance test at Klosterhof Medingen where he also remained at stud for 1975 season.  He was imported to the United States in December 1975 and spent the remainder of his stud career at Etcetera Farm in California, retiring in 1993.

Comments from German Trakehner Stallion Book: 

Highly noble and elegant, typy in his face and in all his lines; very good neck, withers, shoulders and top line; excellent mover.  His forelegs are sufficiently strong, a little bit tied in below the knees.  Both fore and hind pasterns are long and elastic.
