Don Deluxe / Fortuna (Fidertanz / Fürst Heinrich)

2017 Bay Oldenburg GOV Colt
Premium Foal Award

$15,000

This perfect bay colt is an absolute FEI young horse prospect!  He has personality plus, loves attention but is confident enough to get it done on his own. He has 3 excellent gaits; a massive round trot with huge knees, an uphill, round canter with super reach and extension and a super walk. He has deep, square flexion in his hocks, using his hind end very well with plenty of suspension. This colt is a good choice for the amateur rider with an experienced baby trainer or a trainer looking for an FEI prospect. He was born May 25, 2017 via embryo transfer, and is pictured with his surrogate mare.

His sire, Don Deluxe is a striking stallion with three fantastic gaits; this fabulous young stallion impressed the entire European equestrian world. Don Deluxe was honored as the champion of the 2013 Oldenburg licensing and was subsequently sold to Andreas Helgstrand for 910,000 euros. In February, 2015, Don Deluxe was presented at the 35 day stallion test in Denmark. He not only won the test with an impressive score of 894 points, he was also licensed by the Danish breeding committee. His sire, De Niro, number one on the WBFSH dressage sire ranking list, has sired a number of licensed sons before Don Deluxe. Don Deluxe's dam sire, Rosario, by legendary Rubinstein, was a Premium Stallion in Vechta in 2001. He won his performance test, was the Oldenburg state champion two years in a row, and was the reserve champion at the national Bundeschampionate in Warendorf. In addition, he qualified for the world championships for the young dressage horses in Verden and later followed with excellent results in S-dressage. In the third generation, we find Feiner Stern who was a champion stallion with an exceptional trot. Don Deluxe's dam line includes the famous Egitta-line, counting numerous licensed stallions and highly prized mares as well as international competition horses. As a result, we have great expectations for Don Deluxe.

Fortuna is a mare we bred, and this is her first year producing for us. She is a fantastic mare, 16.3, with a massive trot and canter. Both are round, uphill and forward. She has a terrific temperament, easy to handle and has a super personality. She is one of the first mares to greet us at the gate and is always happy to show off!

Fortuna’s sire Fidertanz was the Champion Stallion of the North Rhine-Westphalian stallion licensing, winner of his stallion performance test, Vice Bundeschampion, and has been successfully competing at Grand Prix. His offspring have been sold for top prices at auction. More than 40 Fidertanz sons have been licensed including the Bundeschampion Franziskus.
