Thoughts about "Veredler":
It's very difficult, if not impossible, to translate "Veredler" with a single word. I think you would be best advised to re-post your question under monolingual English.
What is a "Veredler" in the context given? I perceive it to mean:
A stud stallion that contributes actively to the improvement of the breed, especially when it comes to confirmation to the breed standard.
But it's not that simple. Example:
A stallion that consistently sires winning, but ugly, colts and fillies would not be a "Veredler". But a stallion that sired beautiful offspring with good, but not excellent, racing ability may be considered to be a "Veredler", and one that sired beautiful and winning offspring with a systematic genetic fault would not be a “Veredler”.
The "edel" (= noble) bit is important. It is about looks, but not only about looks.

I don't think there exists an English term for "Veredler".
However, since "Veredler" used to be and still are either Arabian Thoroughbreds (ox) or English Thoroughbreds (xx), which have been used to ennoble warmblood breeds all over the world, I think it would be safe to translate "Veredler" as Thoroughbred.

stallion with positive qualities to improve the breed
This is how I would "walk around" it.
To my knowledge there is no corresponding term in English.
