Mystery unraveled!!

I had a fascinating conversation with a very interesting, knowledgeable gentleman yesterday : that bred the lovely Wilf!!! I’ve been trying to get in touch with him for about a month … Wilf has very smart breeding on the dam side; and I always maintained that I felt he should have smart breeding on both sides- he wasn’t just a mistake! … Turns out I was right!! The Sire was ‘a Colt’ this chap bred himself- (unrecorded with IHB hence unrecorded, died last year age 23) by Golden Servant- Kings Servant- King of Diamond. Out of a TB mare by Regal Record- Royal Record. So, he’s got all the great Irish names in his lines: Clover Hill, Powerswood Purple, King of Diamonds; as well as lots of great TB blood: Highland Flight, Regal Sting and the above. He has some very high flying siblings and family, including a 4* horse in America! I knew he had more blood in his pedigree than there is written down… And now I know why I think he’ll go through the grades… Advanced seems more realistic when I know how much TB he actually has!!! He loved hearing how successful Wilf is proving to be, he said ‘I thought he’d be more than a hunter when I sold him’… Too right!! ? ???

    I have ridden horses all my life. I have relocated my yard, to Vale View Equestrian, with facilities that are out of this world for producing my lovely horses. I am very excited about having these resources at my fingertips, and the results are shining through right across the board, showing my horses are settled, happy, and now able to work every aspect of their competition needs!
