Once again in 2012, Romanov set standards in sport and breeding: His first offspring, such as the Dressage Horse World Champion, Honnerups Driver, Bundeschampionat finalist Royal Spirit and Skovens Rafael, a 164,000 Euro price record holder at the Danish licensing, have now arrived in advanced (S) level. At the Olympic Stallion Foal Show, Romanov was the sire of the Champion Foal. At the Oldenburg Elite Foal Auction, the second most expensive foal with a price tag of 23,000 Euros was also by Romanov. Under Edward Gal, Romanov took second place in the World Cup qualifier in Odense with 80.650 percent. At the Dutch Championships, the couple finished second in the Grand Prix as well as the Special and they also placed in s’Hertogenbosh and at the CHIO in Rottderdam.
Further achievements were added in 2012 after Romanov had been successfully ridden in international competitions by Sune Hansen. Together they had taken the Danish Vice Champion title and were also members of the Danish team for the 2011 European Championships. Romanov left the Oldenburg licensing in 2002 with the Reserve Champion title. In 2008 he received the VTV Dressage Stallion of the Year award and in 2011 he was awarded Elite Stallion status and also received the Danish Stallion of the Year award. He then won Grand Prix tests and his enormous willingness to perform has served him well, a trait that he passes along to his progeny along with pronounced type. Among Romanov‘s offspring are two Champion Mares, one in Belgium and the other in southern Germany and the 2009 Oldenburg Reserve Champion Mare. In 2011, two of his foals won qualifiers for the German Foal Championships. Many of Romanov’s progeny are successful at championships. Seven of his offspring qualified for the Danish Riding Horse Championships in 2011 and five in 2012. There were also two finalists at the Dressage Horse World Championships in Verden. Romanov comes from one of the most successful mare lines in sport horse breeding the world over. His dam, Rumirell, produced five further full brothers that were also licensed. His brother Rubin Royal has also won Grand Prix and two others win ribbons up to St. Georges (see Blue Hors Rockefeller).
In 2013 Romanov was sold to Gals main sponsor, Gaston Glock, but is still available to breeders through frozen semen.
