 About - First Date is a tall and elegant son of Furstenball, who is still one of Germany's most popular stallions. He is a long-legged, modern stallion whose damsire Dancier has enjoyed much success recently; both the Wesfalian champion and the 2.1 million euro top-seller of the Hanoverian auction were from Dancier mothers. First Date is from the direct damline of the very popular grand prix stallion Dream Of Glory, who left the breeding scene far too early. Dream Of Glory's dam also produced the licensed stallions Nintento and Dream Dancer, while a sister has produced the CIC3* horse Sulitanos, and the damline also produced the Hanoverian-licensed Veneno x Dimaggio colt.

Sire - Furstenball is famed for his beauty, rideability, and temperament, who at every stage of his career, has showed off his absolutely incredible willingness, strong nerves and relaxed temperament. Every single stride is uphill and his movements swing through his entire body. This wonderful champion stallion demonstrates three elegant and elastic basic paces and natural impulsion, all of which are passed on to his offspring. He was the outstanding winner of his 2009 performance test as well as champion stallion at the Oldenbur licensing in 2008, having sold for the record price of €110,000 as a foal at auction. He was regional and national champion of Germany, winner of S level dressage classes, 2013 VTV stallion of the year, and number 1 of the FN breeding valuation throughout Germany in 2015.

Damline - Damsire Dancier was champion of the 2004 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing in Verden and the 2005 stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf; after his performance test, he sold for €330,000 to the State Stud at Celle. As a young horse, he was reserve champion of the Hanoverian Young Horse Championships, and was third in the four-year-old Bundeschampionat final. In 2008 he was a finalist in the six-year-old Bundeschampionat, and is now successful at advanced level. Dancier's sire De Niro is top of the WBFSH Sire Rankings for 2016, while damsire Lancier is by the great Thoroughbred stallion Lauries Crusador, who won his own performance test with the highest marks in every section, including a 9 for rideability.
