An exceptional De Niro x Rosario x Feiner Stern colt was rightfully named champion of the 2013 Oldenburg Stallion Licensing in Vechta, Germany, on Saturday 23 November 2013. The superb chestnut was the only real "stallion" in a collection of many modern young sport horses. While the overall quality was outstanding on a sport horse level, the collection was quite meager when it came down to sire potential. The absence of the promising Vitalis x Donnerhall as well as an interesting Rock Forever x Sevillano xx and the half-blood by Temptation x Octagonal xx stole some of the licensing's thunder from the start. Especially the Vitalis x Diamond Hit appeared to be the most talented colt in the pre-selection and on video, and many stallion buyers have already knocked on owner Arnd Schwierking's door to buy him months before the licensing. A tooth infection has kept the stallion away from Vechta. His withdrawal gave the De Niro x Rosario plenty of space to shine and reign supreme at this year's licensing.
