(Florencio x De Niro)
Owned by Parkwood Stables. Sire of Free-to-Be's 2017 foal.
Fabregas (DOB 2006, 16.2 1/2 hh Hanoverian Licensed Stallion Reg.# DE 431 310057706) was Dressage Reserve Champion of his Adelheidsdorf 70 day performance test in 2009 with a result of 134.27 points. In 2011 he was winner of two L level Dressage Riding Horse Classes in Germany scoring 8.0 and 8.1 respectively. In December 2011 this stallion was imported to Parkwood Stables in Canada and has been breeding and competing in the U.S. and Canada since.
Fabregas has produced numerous Champions at inspections and shows in Germany, Great Britain, Canada and the U.S. He passes on his correctness, typey looks, elasticity and beautiful gaits. Fabregas has two licensed sons and a number of St.Pr mares in Germany which underlines this stallion’s impressive breeding quality.
Along with his positive genetic influence Fabregas is also turning heads in the show ring as a performance horse. In the 2015 season he moved up to the PSG and I1 levels, winning several tests at the Nationals including a Small Tour Championship. He then performed very well in the CDIs winning ribbons at Saugerties, NY and Devon, PE. The 2016 season has again seen Fabregas win a Small Tour Championship and continue to improve. He also had an excellent performance at the 2016 Saugerties, New York CDI show winning the PSG(72.237) and the Intermediate I Freestyle(73.125) classes. At the same time this stallion continues his exceptional performance with semen quality and conception rates.
Fabregas is the immensely charming son of the duplicate World Champion Florencio, who set standards with his victory scores of 9.5 and 9.8. Based on his own performance and heritability, Florencio is one of the most interesting sires on the European dressage stage. Dam’s sire De Niro, who has sired multiple talented dressage horses, successful in advanced level and Grand Prix, was
awarded “Hanoverian Stallion of the Year 2008”.
Further back in the pedigree of Fabregas is Lanthan and Akzent, who transmit type and beauty. This pedigree has resulted in Fabregas’s very correct conformation and superior rideability.
His elegance, outstanding rideability, walk and exceptional canter strengthen the vision of a growing dressage stallion of special class.
