Progeny Maximum Clearance covered a very small number of mares in America, possibly five a season but they were noted. For example from quotes found on the www warmblood forum;

“ I felt this was a lovely stallion. The foals I saw of his were wonderful movers, better than the dams and good sized, not TB'dy"

“There is also Maximum Clearance, a grand prix jumper, but crossed on Warmbloods he produces fabulous babies with a ton of suspension and movement.”

Here is an email reply from Mr. Otto Schalter, Assistant breeding Director in Germany, R.P.S.I. (Rheinland Pfalz - Saar International.) in relation to Maximum Clearance's inspection and his progeny;

"Dear Heather Wright.
We inspected Maximum Clearance in 1997 and approved him for our warmblood breeding. Maximum Clearance has been a very successful jumper in the Grand Prix Class with his previous owner George Tysarczyk and other international riders. The detailed information you will get from his former owner. The offspring presented to us in the US showed a lot of solid bone, and a good conformation. In the three basic gaites a lot of elasticity and swing. His first offspring in the US, only pure TB's, shows successful in dressage and jumping.
In 1997 he was graded: Type: 8 / Conformation: 7 / Correctness: 7 / Walk: 8 / Trot: 7 / Canter: 9 / Freejumping: 8 / Overall and development: 8
I hope I can help you with this explanations. Feel free to ask if there are further questions.
Best regards
Otto Schalter   "

PEDIGREE This is the 'Equestrian' aspect of his breeding, as apposed to race winners (I did mention the odd steeplechaser too).

SIRE; TURN TO MARS is the sire of the show jumpers ANOTHER BROTHER (Conformation hunter, including Working Hunter Championships at Heaven Trees, etc. He later became a member of the Canadian Equestrian Team and was Jumper Champion at Ottawa), MAXIMUM CLEARANCE (4th $25,000 Pedigree Grand Prix of LA, etc), and the dam sire of the steeplechase horse DARK DEN (winner of the Orange County Point-to-Point in 1998), etc.

Son of TURN-TO, sire of AVANTE GARDE (sire of BONTE II [Showjumping Nations Cup winner at Aachen, Harrisburg, Lucerne, 3rd Grand Prix of Aachen, etc.]), DEAD AHEAD (dam sire of CHASE THE CLOUDS (1st President’s Cup, etc. Ranked in top 10 showjumpers in the world in 1979), FIRST LANDING (dam sire of DEUX COUP [1st Grand National Steeplechase, etc.], MARKET RISE [two time AHSA Conformation Horse of the Year], MARKET STREET [Amateur Owner Hunter Champion National Horse Show], etc.), TULPEHOCKEN (sire of LEAPING FROG- Grand National Steeplechase, etc.),

DAM: GAY FEMME, by Your Alibhai
Gay Femme’s dam, More and More is a 3/4 sister to ANZIO LANDING sire of LAST REQUEST (AHSA Reserve Champion Green Conformation Hunter), OLD DOMINION (two time Green Conformation Champion at the National Horse Show, ranked 4 times in the top 5 AHSA Green and Regular Conformation Hunter, 1969-1974), STEP ASIDE (3rd AHSA Green Conformation Hunter Champion), VITAL VICTORY (AHSA Reserve Champion Regular Conformation Hunter), etc

N.B. In America many jumping and style classes are called 'hunter' classes. Not to be confused with our understanding of 'hunter' classes.

Progeny (all by Max)

The top two pictures were yearlings born in the US. The third picture is a yearling out of a small part bred mare by Glenagyle Rebel (IDr), and the last picture is a colt foal born '06 out of the old warmblood mare 'Weisjh'.  His owner John Reid informs us that he is retaining him on as a future stallion.
