About Dettori

Like its namesake, the legendary Italian jockey Frankie Dettori, this eye-catcher is able to make the difference. Dettori already showed this in 2016 at the performance test of the KWPN, in which he achieved the highest score and was entered with a total of 85 points. With nines for his posture and balance, as well as the rideability and working attitude, he already showed to be a class of his own.

Natural talent

Under the saddle of Hans Peter Minderhoud he continues his sports career in a promising way, as he has showed last year in the Pavo Cup final and in the stallion competition. With his beautiful moves and great rideability he has everything he needs to develop into a horse for the highest level. And at the Glock Horse Performance Center he is in the right place.

Top genes

His natural talent certainly didn’t came out of the blue. Dettori is sired by Desperado, the KWPN performance test top stallion who dominated all his competitors under Emmelie Scholtens. The successful Small Tour stallion is now being prepared for the highest level. Dettori’s dam is the Hannoverian mare Diamond Eye, of which the KWPN has written a positive mother report. She is sired by the Grand Prix dressage legend De Niro, who has established his name in breeding thanks to an unprecedented number of offspring at the highest level, including the famous Desperados, Delgado, Glock’s Voice and D’Agostino. Besides De Niro, the stallion in the third generation, Warkant, was also proclaimed Stallion of the Year in Hannover. This is due to top horses such as Wansuela Suerte, Wunschtraum and Wahajama. Granddam World of Magic produced, among others, the international junior horse Perfect Ronneby (by Rousseau) with whom Kristina Sober won several times.


Given his own talent and strong origines, Dettori is a valuable asset for breeding. He proved that with his first foals, from which Magnum Gold VK was selected as champion of Friesland and Merlot finished in the top ten at the National Foal Championship. In the descendant report, the KWPN concludes that Dettori can improve both the conformation and the rideability in dressage breeding, and that he can also add his great working attitude and the ability to collect. Based on his first foals it can be determined that he inherits his big movements, elasticity, power and selfcarriage.
