If you like a WOW canter than look no further! Dauphin is well known to stamp a great canter and excellent shoulder on his offspring, but with this colt is no exception. Add to that a character and confidence that is sure to steal hearts and shine in the show ring, and you have a top shelf colt with Delacroix.
His dam, Rea, is an elite Hanoverian mare who brings in notable bloodlines such as Regazzoni, Rubinstein I, Davignon I, Donnerhall, Pik Bube I, Werther, and Argentan I. Perhaps most noteworthy is Rea's dam's production record; EM Dulcinee produced 11 offspring with at least two competing to the the FEI level of dressage, two champion foals, and several elite mares. Rea also boasts an unbroken pure Hanoverian damline that goes back over 200 years!
His sire, Dauphin, competed at M level before an injury sidelined his under saddle work. He has produced over 500 German Hanoverian offspring. Of the 112 mares that are in breeding, 27 of them were awarded the coveted States Premium Title. He has 6 licensed and recognized sons carrying on the line. Dauphin has several offspring competing at S class in dressage and one in S class jumping. He has at least 259 offspring now competing in sport. Dauphin has been known as a Celle favourite for a long time for his sweet disposition. Dauphin is on the top list of the Hanoverian breed for type with an outstanding score of 132, and a 143 for limbs!
Dauphin's sire is the legendary Donnerhall. The 2011 Hanoverian Stallion book (the last in which he appears) records that Donnerhall has had 998 competitors, 840 dressage competitors (226 at advanced level) – and even 97 in the jumping ring. He was the sire of 50 licensed sons at that stage.
Dauphin's dam sire was Feiner Stern who at his stallion performance test achieved 9.0 four times for his ability to perform, rideability, trot and gallop in training, and got more than 120 points in the final result. He was awarded the title of main premium winning stallion in Oldenburg in 1987. His first batch of foals brought 4 approved sons.
