|Sir Donnerhall||Sandro Hit||Sandro Song|
This foal combines the incredible Sir Donnerhall with Rohdiamant lines on the dams line. Therefore in the first few generations most the big names of the dressage breeding world appear – Sandro Hit, Donnerhall and Rubinstein!
Sir Donnerhall won his performance test and was awarded his generation's Hauptprämire, awarded for the best first crop of foals sired by stallions licensed in the same year. In 2006, Sir Donnerhall was 5-year-old Bundeschampion, and went on to be Vice World Young Horse Champion. The German FN breeding valuation ranks Sir Donnerhall I as one of the best sires of dressage horses with 150 points. Sir Donnerhall's is out of the Brilliant Ring mare Contenance D. He received the highest dressage index score ever awarded to date of 163 points in his 70-day test.
Sir Donnerhall's sire Sandro Hit was Bundeschampion and World Champion as a 6-year-old in 1999 and 10 of Sandro Hit's progeny also won the Bundeschampionat. At the Rio Olympics 2016 his son Showtime FRH was part of the German gold medal-winning team, and 6th individually, while Santano II was team bronze medallist in eventing for Australia, finishing 5th individually.
Sir Donnerhall's damsire Donnerhall appears in the pedigree of almost every top-level dressage horse. He won numerous international grands prix, including team golds at the 1994 and 1998 World Equestrian Games and the 1997 European Championships, and two individual bronze medals (1994 and 1997). Donnerhall ranked inside the top 10 of the WBFSH Sire Rankings for seven consecutive seasons (2008-2014). Donnerhall's offspring include Damon Hill, Donnerschlag, Donnersong, Don Schufro, Don Principe and Donnperignon and De Niro.
Sir Donnerhall is a consistent sire of performance horses and auction price highlights. In 2012 the Sir Donnerhall son Sa Couer was 5-year-old Bundeschampion, and then sold for $euro;2.3 million at the PSI auction. Sa Coeur was double World Young Horse Champion under Eva Moller in 2012 and 2013, and is now national champion at inter I under Britain's Michael Eilberg. In the same year, Sir Heinrich was Oldenburg champion 4-year-old and Vice Bundeschampion, and Stanford was bronze medallist of the 3-year-old stallions. In the PSI auction, Sir Caramello, Sieberstien and South Coast have all commanded half-million euro bids. Sir Donnerhall has several progeny competing at grand prix.
Roulette is by the 2001 British Warm Blood Society Champion stallion Rosenburg. Rosenburg is by the dressage sensation Rohdiamant, considered by many to be the best son of the legendary Rubinstein.
On the basis of numerous licensed sons (42), Champion and Reserve Champion stallions, State Premium and Brilliantring mares, top auction horses and Bundeschampions, Rohdiamant can be designated a trademark stallion. To his off-spring he passes on his type, radiance, rideability and above all his enormous movement dynamics.
Roulette's dam, Japonia, is a Swedish bred Oldenburg by Pik Trumpf, half sister to Pastiche, the dam of Donnersong. Her grandsire is the outstanding Celle State stallion Pik Konig who also sired the Dressage legend, Pik Bube. Japonia is graded into the main Swedish, Danish and Oldenburg Stud books.
In 2017 one of Roulettes first foals, Sir Rosenburg by San Amour, won his young horse class qualifying for the Semi finals on a score of 80.8! He qualified for two Regional Finals and subsequently qualified for the British Dressage National Championships.
