FirstChoice HW's sire is the stellar Fred Astaire. He was bred the same way, as the successful Don Diamond: The best of the best dressage blood, combined with successful Holstein dressage blood.
His father is the Oldenburg Licensing Champion 2009, the famous Fürst Romancier. In the 70-day test, he scored 9's for the basic gaits, 9.0 and 9.5 for the rideability and a dressage index of over 148 points, was fourth in the Bundeschampionat in Warendorf and fourth in the World Championship in Verden. Via Florestan, Donnerhall and Rosenkavalier, he inherited some of the most valuable dressage blood.
Special genes are also handed down by Fred Astaire's mother line. The dam Caprice stems from the Holsteiner Carpaccio. With the attractive De Niro son Donautanz, she has already produced two victorious offspring in S-dressage. Grandmother Ricarda herself is a 10-time riding horse champion, she has the most valuable Ricardo, Landgraf and Marlon xx blood. Several offspring are successful in both S-dressage and S-jumping.
Fred Astaire is a hopeful young man, the most modern type and has the very best movement. His super fine character makes him particularly appealing. In 2013, he successfully passed the 30-day test. Approved for Oldenburg, Westphalia and all South- associations
FirstChoice HW's dam is by Sir Alfred, a truly special mover.
In very many aspects, Sir Alfred is like a clone and very similar to his sire Sandro Hit. With this very strong line, the foals were able to showed off, all the special mechanics like the father. Some dressage stables secured foals from him. The Birkhof stud bought alone 8 Sir Alfred foals.
The father Sandro Hit became world champion of the 6-year-old dressage horses in Arnhem 1999 and is now one of the most successful sires of the present. His dam is by the Donnerhall grandson Dream of Heidelberg, he has Consul and Absatz blood, which strongly influences him.
His mother Charisma also produced the sensational Comtessa, owner is Paul Schockemöhle, sired by Royal Hit, she was Brillant-ring mare in 2007, in Rastede. Sir Alfred had a very successful 30-day test (8.48) in Neustadt / Dosse. His 70-day test was also far above-average, his dressage index was 125.34 points. In 2007, he competed successfully and victorious in A and L Dressage.
With his own achievements, his exceptionally interesting lineage and hereditary performance, the elegant and particularly dynamic Sir Alfred offers the best genes for the modern dressage horse breeding.

Sunny Boy in turn, was awarded a premium in Oldenburg , whereas Sommeliere likewise was approved in Oldenburger in 1999.
