Dimaggio, the 2000 World Champion of the 5 year old Dressage
Horses and damsire of the 2011 & 2012 Young Horse Dressage World Champion, Woodlander Farouche, is a very noble, modern Hanoverian with three outstanding gaits and an ability to produce top class international dressage horses.
His sire, Don
Primero, was a 1990 Bundeschampion
and was highly successful in international Grand Prix.
Dimaggio's damsire, World Cup I, won his performance test, was the DLG Reserve
Champion Stallion twice, received the "Hanoverian Stallion of
the Year" award and sired numerous dressage horses such as
Watussi, What Joy, Willi the Kid, Walamo, Water World and Vino
Veritas. Through the half Thoroughbred stallions, Lindberg
(by Der Löwe xx) and Emir in the following generations, the line
goes back to the Dannenberg breeding area.
Dimaggio's daughter, Cherie, 2001 World Champion of six year old dressage horses and
hands down winner of the 2003 Nürnberg Burgpokal confirms
that Dimaggio has a dressage pedigree par excellence. Almost 20 of Dimaggio's sons have been licensed. Among them are the finalist of the Bundeschampionate, FS Demirel, the Premium Stallion and Oldenburg State Champion, Diamo Gold OLD, the second Oldenburg Reserve State Champion, Dylando, and the Austrian National Champion and competitor at the World Young Horse Championships, Bartlgut's Duccio.
passed his performance test in 1999 in Neustadt/Dosse with a
score of 133.39 (2nd place) in dressage, and proceeded to
place 4th with the best at the Bundeschampionate before he left for
England. After his arrival in England he immediately became the
Young Horse Champion. In 2000 in Arnheim (NL) he became World
Champion of five year old dressage horses, and in 2002 and 2003
under his rider, Suzanne Davis, Dimaggio won and placed in
various tests up to Inter I. During his breeding time in England, Dimaggio sired the 2003
British Warmblood Champion and the British Sport Horse Champion.
Dimaggio has also produced top selling auction horses. His licensed son, Di Magic, was the top priced horse at the 2011 75th Jubilee Oldenburg Elite Auction in Vechta selling for 240,000 Euro.
At the same auction, the chestnut gelding son, Discovery, sold for 95,000 Euro, and the Dimaggio daughter, Dezemberspitze, was the top priced horse at the following Oldenburg Winter Mixed Sales Auction going for the price of 100,000 Euro.
At the 2006 German Foal Championships, Dimaggio was the sire
of the Reserve Champion Filly (dam by Fürst Heinrich), and his foals continue to be impressive and successful to this day.
