Search for a Stud- is this the one?!

I have a three year old Appaloosa mare, Velvet, whom I would like to breed in the future. (I'll probably wait till she's about 5) But I'm always on the look out for potential studs, and it's a lot to consider, when you try to pick a stud for your special baby.

Personality/conformation/health is of course top priority, but color plays a big role in my decision, not to sound petty, but flashyness is a big plus:)

So, here's what you need to know about Velvet:

Height: 16hh (I know, and she's just 3!)
No conformation flaws, nothing that needs to be compensated for.
Color: Varnish roan over her whole body, red from her shoulders down (and head), and blue on top. Dark legs, and black spots over her rump on a roany white blanket.

My avatar picture is her from behind; in the photo below she is redder on top than she is now.

You should know-
Her mom is COMPLETELY solid, a registered app, but all brown, mane and tail too. Her dad is roan with a blanket and black spots on it, but he's flashier than her. Also, when she was born she was all brown, just like her mom, no markings other than her sock and blaze.

Now, the Stud

After looking though piles of horse magazines, Appaloosa Journals, websites, I've finally found Go Win Johnny

All of his info is here
on his page, were he is owned by Sycamore Run Appaloosas. More info/pictures (of his babies too) can be found here
, on the site of his previous owners.

So, please tell me what you think, if you have any suggestions, or even if you know of another stud to consider! -Thankyou!

Breeding for color is a complicated thing. There are a few people on here who know a lot more about it than I do maybe one will pop on. SO exciting to have a foal though, I couldn't recommend it more.
