This is the third colt out of our mare Romanesque sired by De Niro, as this cross has been producing naturally athletic, top quality colts each time.
World famous sire De Niro needs no introduction. I love love love De Niro offspring and I have bred several. Combined with our beautiful Premium mare Romanesque, this colt has a bright future ahead of him.
We believe this naturally talented colt should be an outstanding dressage prospect capable of reaching the highest levels of dressage sport.

Stunning Hanoverian gelding Faelen SH (Fabregas / Longchamp).
Faelen SH was born in 2015. As a late three year old, Faelen made his way to Florida to be professionally started by Prosperity Farms with Andrea Hayden. In the young horse program that Andrea and her team at Prosperity Farms developed, Faelen flourished into a confident young riding horse with a bright futures.
Faelen has been sold to Anne Wiley and now resides at Quail Valley Farm in Georgia, USA.
Faelen is sired by Fabregas out of our Imported mare Laura by Longchamp.
Fabregas was Dressage Reserve Champion of his Adelheidsdorf 70-day performance test in 2009 with a result of 134.27 points. He was imported to Canada by Parkwood Stables in 2011, and competed with Inga Hamilton right up through the levels to Grand Prix in 2019 – all the while maintaining an active breeding schedule.
Fabregas was purchased in November 2019 by Oakwood Farms, and will stand the 2020 season in Lawrenceburg, IN at the farm.
He has produced numerous champions at inspections and shows in Germany, Great Britain, Canada, and the United States, consistently passing on his correctness, typey looks, elasticity and beautiful gaits. Fabregas has two licensed sons and a number of State Premium mares, which underscores this stallion’s impressive quality.
Fabregas is the immensely charming son of the duplicate World Champion Florencio, who set standards with his victory scores of 9.5 and 9.8. Based on his own performance and heritability, Florencio is one of the most interesting sires on the European dressage stage. Sire’s sire Floristan has ranked in the top 10 WBFSH Dressage Sire Rankings for 9 years in a row now. Dam’s sire De Niro was again in 2017 ranked #1 in the WBFSH Dressage Sire Rankings.
Fabregas’s early years of breeding overseas resulted in top awarded foals in Great Britain and Germany. Fabregas came to Canada in December 2011, beginning his North American breeding career in 2012. His first North American foals hit the ground in 2013.
In 2019, three of his foals were awarded the coveted “Gold Medal Foal” designation in the US and in Canada.
Oakwood Farms is thrilled to have Fabregas join our breeding program and continue his sport career with new owner Meg Williams. His winning temperament and exceptional quality will no doubt make him an invaluable asset to the farm and to the next generations of sport horses in North America.
We look forward to updates from Anne on Faelen’s future progress.
