Van Deyk is just called 'the boss' - a title he really deserves with his incomparable aura - even at the age of 34 years. He is and stayes something very special. You just have to look in his always alert eyes .... In his head he is still young, smart and he asks for exercise, whereas he enjoys his daily care- and sport program. As a boss he wants to savour the entire team's attention...

Van Deyk likes to be a leader, he is always a step ahead, and he has in a positive way a strong character. This is the only explanaition why he came back to life after the stable burn and also back to the Grand Prix- arena. His strength, his studiousness, but also his outstanding elegant, light-footed movements he passes on to his offsprings.

Van Deyk was bred by my father. He is out of the thoroughbred Patricius xx.

With him I register, after his racing-career, in its process he earned more then 100.000 Mark, successes in medium dressage tests. Van Deyk is one of three licensed sons of Patricius xx.

The dam state premium Vanessa, 1992 reserve victory of Hessian show, is bred to the founder-sire Impuls and carries with the DLG- and many times championships victory Ibiskus the very valuable blood of Pythagoras. In 29 years of bred she gave birth to 22 foals and she died at the age of 35. Vanessa goes back to the family of Vera O373.

Van Deyk became premium-sire of his licensing 1986 in Neumünster and afterwards he was prepared for his career in equine sport first by my father and later by me. As a six years-old he won medium level dressage tests, at the age of eight advanced level and finally Grand Prix tests. In total he registers more then 60 victories in advanced level up to Grand Prix level-dressage tests.

Due to his offspring's successes Van Deyk obtained 1997 the arward elite-sire and in 2005 the title Trakehner stallion of the year. Before the victory of his son Kaiserkult TSF 2004 in national championships for six years-old dressage horses. His grandson Grafenstolz, who qualified for all diciplines, became national champion of six years-old eventing horses and short after world champion. In the following year Kaiserkult-full-brother Kaiserdom TSF repeated the title-win in Warendorfer - a sensation, never before could full-siblings win two championships titels.

Kaiserkult TSF, who also was victorious under me up to Grand Prix level, Kaiserdom TSF and premium-sire Zauberdeyk are Van Deyk's three of twelve licensed sons. Polarion, Grafenstolz's father, participated himself successful in world-cup dressage tests. Further 220 sport-successful offsprings of Van Deyk earned together almost 180.000 Euro.

After 34 years together, I had to say goodbye to my companion in February 2018. Van Deyk hopefully looks up from above, I'll never forget him!
