He qualified for the US National Championships, finishing in 8th place and went on to finish 2nd in the USDF All-Breeds standings for the year.

In 2011, De Feiner Star started off his season with good ribbons in the FEI 5-year old classes and placed 4th overall at the FEI Young Horse East Coast Selection Trials. He also made his first outings at Second Level with scores of 68 % and 70%. In the fall, De Feiner Star once again was a winner at Dressage at Devon, this time winning the Stallions Under Saddle, his 4 & 5 year old Materiale class, and finishing Reserve Champion in the first ever Materiale Championship at Devon.

De Feiner Star is sired by De Laurentis who earned 9's or higher at his Stallion Test for character, temperament, constitution, willingness to work, and his walk. Grandsire De Niro was Reserve Champion of his Stallion Performance Test with a score of 141.93.
