Date was born at the Friesian Connection farm in Dorr Michigan in 2009 with the name Dominic FC. He was sold as a foal to his current owner, Joseph Sieczka of Palos Park, Illinois. At the September 2012 Keuring in Ionia Michigan the KFPS jury recognized his greatness and invited him to participate in the 70 day test to be held in Hanford California. Date finished the stallion testing process with exceptionally high scores (82 points for riding and 85 points for show driving and IBOP driving) and was approved for breeding in March of 2013. He now has the name Date 477 (pronounced DAH-tah).
Date quickly excelled in the discipline of dressage and has at the age of 6 earned his "Sport" predicate, successfully competing at Z1 dressage with scores of 70-73.5%.
