The black Hanoverian branded 4-year old stallion Destano (by Desperados x Brentano II) was proclaimed the winner of the Oldenburg Hauptpremium, a special award for the 4-year old Oldenburg approved stallion with the best stallion performance test score and first foal crop.

Bred by Heinrich Giesselmann and owned by Gestut Sprehe, Destano was presented in hand alongside the Oldenburg bred Surprice (by Sir Donnerhall I x Prince Thatch xx) and the Oldenburg licensing champion Fairbanks (by Flemmingh x Inschallah AA). The black stallion was unshaken by the electric atmosphere at the 2011 Oldenburg Stallion Licensing and showed impeccable behaviour. He also had the best walk of the three and moved with much engagement from behind.

The committee named Destano the Hauptpremium winner because he was successful in the 30-day performance test in Schliekau (dressage score 8.69, jumping score 8.94, overall score 8.845) and convincing in his 70-day performance test (dressage index 134 points, jumping index 67 points) with an average end score of 7.91.

Especially his first foal crop was a decisive factor in Destano winning the title. He sired two foals that sold at the elite auction and 28 foals earned a premium at the foal inspection. of the inspected at the foal shows.
