Diamond Hit / Haverford's Redhawk (Hohenstein / Grandus)

2019 Bay Oldenburg GOV Filly

Born June 7, 2019 via embryo transfer


This girl will own the court!  Drakaina is confident, bold and forward. She is extremely independent, comfortable in her own skin and fearless. She is put together exceptionally well, balanced with three very good gaits. Her canter is currently her best gait with a large step under behind and tremendous reach with both fore and hind limbs. Her trot is showing both roundness and reach with excellent push. She is very correct conformationally with a super hip/loin connection; perfect for the upper level horse.  This filly is exciting for the future! She’s just what an experienced amateur rider or trainer would look for in a FEI prospect. She has a full sibling that is currently showing successfully at Prix St. Georges at the age of 8. Estimated 16.2 – 16.3.  She will be WFSS Negative, both Sire and Dam are Negative.

Diamond Hit is an established hero among the international top sires – one of the performance-strongest offers from the parental home of Donnerhall. Diamond Hit is “purveyor” for auction sites, Bundeschampionat and World Championships of young dressage horses. Every year, numerous offspring compete in Warendorf. The licensed son Donavan became Bundeschampion of four-year old stallions in Warendorf in 2005, his daughter Loxana was the sovereign champion at the Oldenburg Elite Broodmare show in Rastede, where ten Diamond Hit daughters were named State Premium Mare. Diamantenbörse became Oldenburg Champion for three-year old riding horses and achieved the bronze medal at the World Championship for young dressage horses in 2008. In 2015 Diamond Hit presented the winning mare of the German Elite Broodmare Championships. In the meantime, the number of licensed sons has increased to 55 (e.g. Daily Deal) at different licensing sites. 71 of his progeny have been successful in advanced (S) dressage classes, although, the generations with the highest birthrate are still growing into the competing equestrian sport. The FN's predicted breeding value statistics confirms this: Diamond Hit is unchanged in the lead of all sires on national level with 146 points in 2015.

No less spectacular is Diamond Hit's sporting career: In 2002 he became Vice World Champion and Vice Bundeschampion of five-year old dressage horses. A year before, he was Oldenburg Vice Champion and Vice Bundeschampion of four-year old stallions. At the 2001 Bundeschampionat he was especially awarded by the Ministry of Agriculture for being the best licensed and performance-tested stallion. In 2005 he was proclaimed VTV-Dressage Stallion of the Year at the Oldenburg Stallion Days. Then, he competed successfully up to international Grand Prix level. In 2012, Diamond Hit retired from sport in a stirring atmosphere during the Oldenburg Old Stallion Parade.

Diamond Hit’s sire, Don Schufro, leader of FN's predicted breeding value statistics Dressage for years, was victorious internationally up to Grand Prix and earned bronze with the Danish team in Hong Kong in 2008. The dam Loretta produced first Sandro Hit followed by Diamond Hit and finally Royal Hit, so that she is probably the most influential Oldenburg mare of her generation. Ramino and Welt As, who are next in the line of ancestors, became both top performer of worldwide recognition.

Haverford's Redhawk (Hohenstein/Grandus/Weltmeyer) produced the 2011 Oldenburg GOV N.A. Inspection Tour Reserve Champion Colt, DeHavilland, who is now competing at Prix St. Georges with Sarah Lockman. She has produced two stallion prospects and several premium foals.

Hohenstein was the 2002 Trakehner Stallion of the Year. He is by Caprimond out of Helena XIV (by Matador x Grimsel). At two, he won the premium title at his licensing. At three, he was the Reserve Champion of his Stallion Performance Test in Adelheidsdorf. He was a finalist in the five-year old division at the German Bundeschampionat. He trained up to Intermediaire II.
