Main premium winner

De Niro - Desperados FRH - Destano: These are contracts with generations! Destano is a good-sized stallion with a modern silhouette, correct conformation and the best character. Supple and dynamic, he knows how to put on a first class presentation by showing off his gaits. As expected with such a pedigree, he's highly rideable, very intelligent and eager to learn. Despite of the high activity in breeding, he has won in the dressage arena up to Intermédiare I and is trained up to grand prix. In 2016 he placed first with his rider Sabine Rüben in an advanced (S) class and third in the St. George Spécial at the horse show in Neu-Anspach (Wintermühle). In Schiffdorf-Geestenseth they succeeded again and won both, the advanced (S) class and the St. Georges Spécial.

Destano was the I-a main premium winner at the 2011 Oldenburg Stallion Days in Vechta. After evaluation of his performance record in sport, assessment of his first crop and current physical state, the stallion committee declared him the absolute "Number One" of four and a half-year old stallions in a field of strong competitors that were also presenting their first crops. As heir to the throne of his Olympic sire he was strongly frequented in the past years. In the past years he presented highly paid auction foals and produced 21 licensed sons, including several premium stallions. In 2015 Destano was sire of the second reserve champion at the Mecklenburg licensing in Redefin. In the following two years, six other sons were licensed at different licensing sites. At the 2016’ fall elite auction in Vechta he presented a price sensation: Denoix, premium stallion and Oldenburg vice champion of four-year old stallions in Rastede, was sold for 300,000 Euro to the American Nancy Gooding. Furthermore, he produced the champion mare and second reserve champion mare in Mecklenburg, the national champion mare in Carinthia (AUT) and the winner at the Herwart-von-der-Decken show. In 2017 he was again sire of further champion mares in Austria and presented the Mecklenburg champion of four-year old riding horses. An above-average number of youngsters are successful in tests for young riding horses and dressage horses.

This liver chestnut stallion was licensing winner, finalist at the Bundeschampionat and trained up to Grand Prix level. Due to his outstanding breeding record as dressage sire (e.g. sire of numerous world-class horses such as Barclay II/Sven Rothenberger, Brentina/Debbie Mc Donald and several others) he was nominated „Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2003“.
