Oldenburg Licensing Champion in Germany, Exciting Young Sire awarded 1c Premium
Fairbanks was Champion of the 2009 Oldenburg Stallion Licensing in Vechta, Germany. He quickly became the crowd favorite with his spectacular performance, extravagant gaits, impressive jumping ability and willing temperament. Fairbanks completed his 30-Day Test very successfully. In a field of 49 stallions, including Bundeschampionat winners, Licensing Champions and top-priced stallions, he placed third with an overall score of 8.74. He repeated this success in 2011 at his 70-Day Test. He was the only stallion to score over 100 in both jumping and dressage, showing his versatility and willingness under saddle. Sire Flemmingh, a most successful dressage stallion in the Netherlands sired international dressage horses Krack C (Anky van Grunsven) and Lingh (Edward Gal). A Flemmingh daughter was the overall Champion at the National Dutch Mare Show. Fairbanks’ dam, SPS Identify, was highly praised at her Mare Performance Test. Damsire Inselfürst was the winner of his Stallion Test and successfully shown in Advanced Level dressage. Full sister to Fairbanks’ granddam Alegra produced stallions San Brasil, a Bundeschampionat participant and Celle stallion Los Angeles. In 2011, Fairbanks presented his first outstanding foal crop in Germany which were representative of himself; large expressive foals with long lines, beautiful heads and necks and outstanding movement. At the 2011 Oldenburg licensing, Fairbanks was awarded the 1c-Premium due to his exceptional Stallion Test results, impressive foals and his overall development as a top breeding stallion. This was especially remarkable as he was not primarily breeding in the main Oldenburg breeding region and therefore had to stand up to strong competition for this award. Currently, his offspring beginning their under saddle careers are exceeding all expectations. Son Flair Royal was 2015 Four-Year-Old French Young Horse Champion and won again in 2017 as the Six-Year-Old Champion. Owner Louise Leatherdale has been honored twice as USDF Dressage Breeder of the Year, 2016 and 2017. He is approved ARS and GOV.
