|Donna Doria||De Vito|
Fugato was bred and raised in Oldenburg, Germany, and passed the Oldenburg Verband under-saddle licencing prior to their Auction Day where he was purchased by Sheena and Dermot Ross of Sterling Warmbloods Ltd. in New Zealand. This quality young stallion has a particularly nice temperament and 3 really good paces. Fugato SW ticks all the boxes. Under saddle he has proven himself to be a very sensible, calm, sensitive and forward going ride. He likes to please his rider.
The Sire Line – producers of Elasticity and Movement. Fugato SW has a fabulous pedigree. His father, Foundation, is a very famous sire at PSI International. Foundation is by the famous F line stallion Fidertanz and out of a D line mare by De Vito (from the celebrated De Niro and Donnerhall line). Many Foundation sons and daughters are shining in the competition arena in Germany. What really marks them is their extraordinary elastic movement. Foundation is known to be a movement producer, and anyone who has viewed the videos of Fugato can see he has inherited the amazing movement of his father.
The Dam – by the Sire of Furstenball. Fugato’s dam is a state premium Oldenburg mare and is by the multiple world champion Furst Heinrich. Horses by this sire are very much in demand — he died young at age 7, but not before producing a remarkable number of state premium mares and licensed sons including the hugely famous Furstenball . Furst Heinrich is out of a Donnerhall mare. Fugato’s Dam Sire is the super sire Rohdiamant, who in turn is by Rubinstein and out of a mare by the renowned Anglo Arab stallion Inschallah, a horse who in his day was an important lightening influence in several German stud books.
A World Class Pedigree Blended for Temperament and Athleticism The R line of Fugato’s Dam is also renowned as producing horses with good temperaments, and having Donnerhall in the background on both sides of the pedigree brings the promise of great athleticism for the upper levels of dressage. Breeders using Fugato SW are breeding from a horse with world class bloodlines.
For the second year in a row Fugato SW was the Stallion of the Tour Winner based on progeny at the 2020 NZWB Studbook Tour.
