There was no way around Radisson! With a clearly very good score (9.0) for canter and overall impression, an 8.5 for trot and submissiveness and a good score (8.0) for walk, it wasn't possible to refuse him the crown at the Oldenburg Championship for four-year old dressage horses. In his first competition season the Reserve Champion of the Oldenburg saddle licensing won and placed with the best in tests for young riding horses right away. At his 30-day test in Schlieckau the highly-talented dressage master knew to convince as well in all matters: the test riders awarded the dream score 10.0. For the character he received a 9.63, for canter a 9.25, an 8.75 for walk and for trot a score of 8.5. This resulted into a final score of 9.23 with emphasis on dressage – so he finished as second Reserve Winner in a group of 41 competitors.
Right from his first crop Radisson presented outstanding foals awarded a premium and sold for high prices at elite auctions.
In the pedigree of the sire Rock Forever I NRW the blood of the jumper-sires of the century Ramiro, Ladykiller xx, Grande, Capitol I and Pilot is united perfectly. Rock Forever I was Reserve Champion at the NRW main licensing as well as Westphalian Champion, at the Bundeschampionat he won silver twice and bronze once, took, after winning the qualifier, sixth place at the WC for five-year old dressage horses and third place in the final of Burg Trophy. Under Sophie Holkenbrink he added a fifth rank at the German Championships for young riders and first placings in Grand Prix competitions to his performance record in 2014. The group of nearly 30 licensed sons is led by the acting Westphalian Champion Stallion Rock For Me and the St.Georg level successful Rocky Lee, who sired Revolution, the 1.2 million price highlight at the Hanoverian stallion market in 2015. The Rock Forever I-daughter Romy placed in front at both the German and the Westphalian Elite Broodmare Show. His athletic offspring win on a broad front.
The dam Fontania is sired by Thoroughbred Sevillano xx, a son of the famous Derby winner Alpenkönig xx, who could win four group I races when he was three-years-old. As from 1991 Sevillano xx had bred at our station for a duration of two years and produced numerous top horses for auctions. Then, he had been in breeding in Thuringia before returning again to Hamstrup. His son Donaufischer was licensed for the Trakehner breeding and awarded a premium. As well licensed: CM’s Sarastro, Secano and Showtime.
Fontania is half-sister of the mare Fontirell (by Silvio I), who delivered the both licensed full-brothers Converter I and II (both by Contender), of the medium (M) jumper-mare Zacapa (by Zeus), who produced the advanced (S) level successful Cortez (by Cordalmé), as well of Rioja (by Rubinstein) who competed victoriously in dressage up to Grand Prix level with Johannes Augustin.
In third and fourth generation of Radisson's pedigree the precious blood of Grande and Gotthard comes into play through the sires Grundstein I and Goldpilz.
The traditional line of Nigretti is also known for the licensed stallions Bodyguard (by Burlington), the 2013' Vice Bundeschampion under Jana Freund, and Pik Solo (by Pik König) as well as the internationally victorious advanced (S) level show jumpers Lordiana (by Lordanos) and All Night (by Abke).
