2015 In-Utero Eventing Prospects
Sire Callaway IV successfully maintained an outstanding jumping and breeding career, a fact his owner credited to his competitive spirit and trainable mind. Reality Happens is a very well bred off the track thoroughbred mare and a guaranteed single copy carrier of the large heart gene.
3 lines of My Babu (grandsire of Bruce Davidson’s Olympic Gold mount J J Babu)
2 lines of Cor de la Bryere (one of the greatest influences on jumper breeding of all time)
1 line of Moscow Ballet
a dash of Deadly Nightshade
78% TB, definitely shaken, not stirred…
Full sibling to our 2014 filly Sea of Dreams, we were so impressed by her we bred Luna back to Sea Accounts. Sire Sea Accounts is successfully eventing at the Intermediate level and dam Luna competed to the CIC** level and placed in children’s jumpers and equitation. Although an out-cross up close, this pairing concentrates Royal Charger (sire of Canadian USET jumper gold metalists Canadian Club and Volunteer) and Busanda (dam of Buckpasser known for passing soundness). Incorporating the hard to find but incredibly influential Der Lowe for expressive movement, 85%TB for gallop and soundness, and gold metal winning jumper lines for day 3, what more could you want under you at the WEG?
2016 In-Utero Eventing Prospects
Dam, Report to Sloopy, 1/2 sister to CIC**** horse Sloopy brings the legendary eventing lines of My Babu (grandsire of Bruce Davidson’s J J Babu) and Graustark. Sire, Royal Alyance brings in the warmblood jumping greats, Lord, Ladykiller (through Landgraf I), and Cor de la Bryere. This match concentrates and sex balanced lines of Native Dancer (agility, jumping, work ethic) , Princequillo, Nearco (jumping), and 8 lines of Blue Larkspur (one of the 4 major modern carriers of the large heart gene). Full sibling to 2012 gelding Royal Report. Should mature around 16.2.
Report to Sloopy
Sire, Contucci, is known for passing ridability and trainability to his offspring and has several top eventers including 2014, 2015 Rolex horse Consensus. Dam, My Martina, retired sound after a long race career and brings in the sought after TB lines of Alydar, Alibhai, and Round Table. Full sibling to Copperfield who, with his rider Dan, has a string of top 5 finishes to start their careers. This season is possibly one of Contucci’s last years breeding so don’t miss this opportunity.
Hushabye Lady descends from Sir Ivor who had a major influence on English steeple chase and eventing in the late 60’s. He was also named by the French annual book of sport horse breeding as the TB sire with the greatest influence on the international jumping scene worldwide. Sire, Rabble Rouser (Royal Appearance x Irish Lace), brings lines of Nasrullah, Herbager, and jumper sires Landgraf I, Lord, and Cor de la Bryere. A match weighing in at 86% blood, duplication of Never Bend (known for his strong influence on stamina and ranked the No 1 eventing sire for 3 consecutive years) square in the center of the “engine room”, and line bred in the further reaches to reinforce strong foundation eventing lines yet maintain enough jumper up close to get you through stadium clean.
