Under his rider Kristina Sprehe, Desperados crowned his already unique career with a team silver medal as member of the German team at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, where he also took eighth place in the individual result. He had his international breakthrough with winning the German Dressage Derby in Hamburg, then other highlights followed.
Numerous first places in tests for young riding horses, including the 2004 Hanoverian Championships in Verden as well as bronze twice in 2004 and 2005 at the Bundeschampionat in Warendorf are convincing recommendations for this strong typed, large lined young dressage stallion. This assessment is clearly underlined by the top scores he received for his gaits (trot 9.0/canter 9.5/walk 9.0) and rideability (2 x 9.0 outside rider test) at the 2004 Bundeschampionat as well as at his outstanding 30 day test in 2004 in Schlieckau where he finished with the highest scores for gaits and rideability (9.5 in the outside rider test!). As a son of the champion stallion and star sire, De Niro, who is in a class of his own in sport as the 2003 Dressage Derby winner, Desparados already enjoys great attention by breeders.
His dam's sire, Wolkenstein II, who is deemed one of the most significant Weltmeyer sons, won his performance test in Celle, was a 1993 Bundeschampion and has also sired champion stallions and Bundeschampions. Other valuable genes in this combination come from the Anglo-Arabian, Matcho, known for passing on rideability, and the legendary trademark stallion, Pik König, in the following generations.
Desperados' performance record is impressive. But also in breeding, Desperados is as safe as a bank. His offspring are convincing due to their good looks, good type and excellent movements.
According to the German FN's predicted breeding value statistics, Desperados belongs with 143 points to the top one percent of all German stallions. Furthermore, Desperados received the Grande award from the Hanoverian Verband on the occasion of the gala evening of the 126. Elite Auction in spring 2012.
