Diamond Dinah by De Niro out of a mare by Welmeyer.
De Niro - 2008 Hanoverian Stallion of the Year - is an exceptional stallion of superlative type and performance. His progeny are outstanding – he has 22 approved sons and 99 State Premium mares. De Niro has proved himself through his own performance, he won his first Grand Prix at just 7 years of age, and through his offspring’s exceptional achievements.
Weltmeyer is a legend in his own right. He was known for passing on expression and movement quality. He produced 86 licensed sons and 433 State Premium Mares. He sired an endless list of super successful dressage horses (Warum Nicht, Weltall, Wie Weltmeyer, Welcome) and auction horses. Weltmeyer became even more renowned as an exceptional dam sire and his name can be found in the dam line of uncountable licensed stallions, breed show winners and sports horses. Weltmeyer was Stallion of the Year in 1998.
This foal could be something really special - his pedigree reads like a Who’s Who of the great dressage stallions. He is uphill, has really good hock action and has the ‘look at me’ star quality.
Diamond Dinah’s 2012 colt foal Fandango by Fontainebleau out of Diamond Dinah wins an Elite Dressage Premium and gains the top score of the day at the BEF Futurity evaluations at Tall Trees Arena.
He scored 9.83 for his trot, 9.5 for his walk and finished with an overall mark of 9.30.
