Diaggio Standing at UK Hanoverians http://www.uk-hanoverians.co.uk/Stallions.htm
2006 Liver chestnut 17hh 2015
This tall, elegant son of Dimaggio has a beautiful head and neck and is strikingly uphill with outstanding paces for international dressage. So like his sire to ride, he is a very exciting addition to our breeding stallions.
Diaggio’s competition career only started in 2013 and he is making very good progress having won 12 of his classes qualifying him for the 2014 Winter Regional Championships.
Temperament wise, he is a calm and relaxed stallion, very kind and willing and is a pleasure to handle and ride.
His dam sire, Florestan, was champion at the 1988 Rhinelander Stallion Licensing and won the Stallion Performance Test in Warendorf the following year with 129,02 points.
He sired 88 approved sons and more than 2000 offspring are registered as sport horses. Many of them are World Young Horse Champions, Bundeschampions as well as Grand Prix horses: e.g. French Kiss, Fazzino, Florencio, Fidermark, Furst Fabio, Ferrara, Torricelli, etc.
Akzent II was prized for carrying on the ‘type’ of the Trakehner Absatz: a noble head and appealing face, ideal neck and saddle position and a good shoulder, combined with soft-to-the-ground way of going. His dam was by the Thoroughbred, Waidmannsdank, who was one of the most influential Thoroughbreds of the post-war period in Hanover.
Akzent II was regarded as one of the best producers of rideability in his day and is the dam's sire De Niro.
