Rafael is sired by Fairbanks Rusty, an exceptionally well bred stallion with conformation and temperament to match. Rusty is competing in dressage at Prix St Georges and has the ability to progress to Grand Prix. He is a real pleasure to work with on the ground and from the saddle. His first foals are now 4 years old and starting to be ridden. They all have their dad's wonderful temperament and good looks.

Fairbanks Rusty is by the Hannoverian Stallion Rotspon. Rotspon was the winner of the stallion performance test in Adelheidsdorf, scoring an amazing 148.82 points in the dressage category and a 9.5 rideability score. He also has a good jumping technique which is well above average.
Fairbanks Rusty’s dam is by the KWPN stallion Jazz who is the stallion of the century with eighty horses in Grand Prix. He has 11 licensed sons & 23 licensed grandsons. Jazz was ranked 1st in the world on the WBFSH standings. Jazz is the top all time progenitor of Dressage horses, who really stamps his stock and produces GP horses.
Rafael’s dam Whatawow started her career as a race horse and then worked as a school horse before joining the broodmare paddock. Whatawow is blessed with active paces, athletic movement and is full of vitality. Don’t be fooled by her pretty face & exquisite black points, she is very smart and passes this onto her progeny.
Whatawow's Grand sire Danehill Dancer (IRE) was Champion Sire in Britain and Ireland in 2009, and Champion Sire of 2-year-olds on three occasions. Danehill Dancer has won an impressive 60 stakeswinners & 112 stakeswins. He was a dual Gr.1 winning 2yo & the best sire son of one of the all-time greatest racehorses, Danehill.
