Rubinstein is by the stallion Rosenkavalier who is by Romadour II, who is the sire of World and Olympic champion, Rembrant. Rubinstein is the sire of Relevant, Rusty, Rhodiamant, Royal Diamond amongst many others. Rubinstein was quite simply one of the best dressage sires to have ever lived.

He was the reserve champion of his stallion testing. Grenadier is considered one of the most influential stallions from the Grenade line. In 1990, he was third in his age group in FN statistics in dressage. His son Golfstrom I was an international grand prix dressage horse, winning the German team gold medal with Ann Kathrin Kroth at the 1990 World Championships in Sweden.
