Pik As (Ace of Spades) was a Thoroughbred stallion who was a very influential sport horse sire, especially in show jumping.

Pik As was most known for his ability as a sire, passing on his beautiful movement and a great jumping ability.

Pik As stood at stud from 1952-1969, he produced great jumping horses, and was influential in the breeding of warmbloods in Germany during his lifetime. His damline contained Postenkette, dam of Pindar xx (private Trakehner stallion), Parenzo xx (Warendorf state stallion), Pernod xx (Westphalia private stallion), Playmate (Warendorf state stallion) and Perser (Celle State Stud), a full brother to Pik As. All these stallions became very influential in their areas.
