Grandiose debut as stallion sire
From his first crop of foals, For Romance II has already produced three licensed stallions in Vechta and Verden, including Fortron and Friedrich der Große who were called to the premium ring of the best of the year. The latter was third top price of the Stallion Market, selling for 240,000 euros. At the German Foal Championships in Lienen, a colt and filly by For Romance II were placed in the final.
For Romance II continued his sporting career by qualifying for the German Championships and Oldenburg Championships for six-year old dressage horses with Frederic Wandres. At the P.S.I. auction, For Romance II was sold for 700,000 euros to Blue Mountain Farm but remains with his rider for further training and is thus still available to breeders.
In 2009, his sire Fürst Romancier was fourth at the World Championships for five-year-old dressage horses and at the German championships. Amongst his numerous successful offspring are the Burg Cup winner First Romance/Dorothee Schneider and Fürst Levantino, Burg Cup finalist and silver medallist of the Junior European Championships.
For Romance II is the full brother of For Romance I, Oldenburg Champion stallion, record price holder of the Stallion Market, winner of the main premium, Burg Cup finalist and successful in Grand Prix, of the licensed stallion Fürst Donnerhall PS, of Fasine OLD, Oldenburg Champion Mare, German Champion, P.S.I. price record holder and successful at S level, who has also produced the stallion Fasino (by Foundation) who stands at our stud, and of the mare A la Fasine (by Apache), who has produced the licensed stallion HP Valentino (by Vitalis). Don Romance PS comes from the crossing of El.St. Gesina and Dante Weltino. Bred to De Niro, Gesina also produced the licensed stallion Desino. Gesina’s daughter, Mount St. John Best of All, by Bordeaux, became British Dressage National Champion and was placed up to Small Tour level and produced Best of Mount St. John OLD (by Fürst Romancier) who was Vice Regional Champion and fifth of the German National Championships.
The dam’s sires Sir Donnerhall I, himself 2nd Reserve Champion of his licensing, Regional Champion, record winner of the stallion performance test, Vice World Champion and German Champion as well as main premium winner, and Don Schufro, Olympic team bronze winner with Andreas Helgstrand/DEN in Hongkong/HKG, have resulted in interesting inbreeds to the sire of the century, Donnerhall, and to the no less significant half-breed, Sandro in the previous generations of the pedigree.
Grand-dam Gesine also produced the 1st Reserve Champion Vivaldi’s Schufro (by Vivaldi).
For Romance II descends from Voltaire’s dam line.
