About - Dostojewski is a rare cross of De Niro onto a Trakehner dam line. He is a light, elegant stallion; very modern and athletic thanks to his dam's pedigree.
Sire - Sire De Niro needs no introduction. In 2016, he topped the WBFSH Sire Rankings for the fourth time. De Niro enjoyed a phenomenal career in both sport and breeding; he has produced countless grand prix horses, winning medals at the highest levels. His son Desperados FRH has been a key member of the German team for several seasons. Desperados has won three team golds (Herning 2013, WEG 2014, Rio 2016), one team silver (London 2012), one team bronze (Aachen 2015), double individual silver (Aachen 2015) and an individual bronze (Rio Olympics 2016). In his eight championship appearances, Desperados has finished in the top five on seven occasions, and has never scored below 70% at international level under Kristina Bröring-Sprehe. The De Niro/Weltmeyer cross has also produced Delgado (individual bronze, Aachen 2015), Super Nova II (team silver, Rio 2016), and Danone I's full brothers Danone II (now deceased) and Der Designer, both winners at Inter II.
Damline - Elite Trakehner damsire Latimer, who won a bronze medal in the German Young Rider Championships, is a grandson of Caprimond, who also produced Claire, dam of Woodlander Dornroschen and grand-dam of Farouche. State premium dam Lindsey won her performance test with a rideability score of 9.0 and also produced advanced dressage mare Danse Du Feu, and top auction horse Feldrose who sold for €270,000. The damline has also given us advanced horses Romantica, Romanov and Walkie Talkie. The pedigree also adds a double-dose of Donnerhall via state premium mare Rahel.
Progeny - Dostojewksi' first foals will arrive in 2018, and we look forward to seeing what he produces.
