Having been retired from the race track, Il Divo won second reserve champion at the “Schaufenster Vollblut” in Münster 2010, where he caught the eye of state stud director Dr. Astrid von Velsen-Zerweck:“A tremendously attractive and elegant horse characterised by uphill movement and lots of impetus.” Thanks to his uncomplicated rideability, he is able to display these qualities under saddle, as well.He stands out for his wonderful temperament.
