Fabulous moving 3 year old ISH mare for sale!

This fabulous moving, attractive registered 3 year old Irish Sport Horse mare is by Jaunty Star - an imported ID stallion from the UK. She currently stands 15.3-16hh and her Thoroughbred dam is 16.1hh and her sire 17-17.1hh so she should mature in the 16.2-16.3hh range

Here is a link to her pedigree:

http://www.sporthorse-data.com/d?z=6r55sn&d=DKH+Star+Prospect&sex=&color=&dog_bre ed=any&birthyear=&birthland=

And here are some pictures of her taken this morning:






She is very much a jumper / eventer / dressage type mover. A lot of animation and suspension, a lot of push from behind - she is very "up" and forward in her movement. I produce hunters and I really feel this girl would be better suited for a show career in the jumper / eventing / dressage arena or as a future broodmare in those disciplines and not for the hunter ring

Here is some information on her fabulous bloodlines as well from some friends over in the UK that are very much involved in the eventing discipline:

Just to add some eventing/hunter-orientated details to the useful info on the Alice's Diamond Slipper website.

Diamond Lad was one of four stallion sons of Kildalton Countess; another one - the multi-Dublin stallion class champion, Kildalton Gold, was also the damsire of Ballincoola and Kildalton Countess' sire, Ben Purple was the damsire of Sydney Olympic gold medallist, Custom Made.

Two of the current leading event/young event horse class sires, Puissance and King's Master, also feature King Of Diamonds in their damline.

The advanced eventer, Irish Jester (winner of the 4 & 5yo YEH finals at Burghley) is by Slyguff Joker (reverse-bred to Puissance and KM as he was KOD x Imperius).

King of Diamonds and Laughton also feature in the pedigree of Diamond Clover, sire of Hong Kong Olympic eventer, Tankers Town.

Rochestown Gold (ADS's dam) also bred the successful show hunter, Rochestown Amoroso, that has placed well in both heavyweight & ridden ID classes at Dublin in recent years.

Her paternal grand-sire, Skippy, gives a link to Jumbo and also further back to two excellent TB sires, Final Problem and Foxhunter. Final Problem's grand-son - Western Promise (s. Western Problem) was the sire of Robert Smith's Mr Springfield (eq. 4th indiv. showjumping - Athens Olympics) and closer to home, Abigail Lufkin's international eventer, Hannigan.

Tara is another link to Sea Crest (sire of Lenamore & grand-sire of Mr Meddicott) and Clover Hill while the ID sire, Milestone appears three times in Jaunty Star's pedigree. All good as Milestone was one of the best ID stallions and his progeny were known for their great walk/movement. Good walk = good gallop which hopefully will still be important in three-day eventing.

Pride of Shaulara is particularly interesting as his dam, Boston Burglar, was by Prefairy. This National Hunt sire thankfully also covered some half-bred/ID mares as he has some of the most brilliant bloodlines. Like the legendary foundation sire, Furioso, Prefairy was by Precipitation and it's easier to name the Irish jumping sires that didn't have Precipitation in their bloodlines than those that did, such as Bahrain, Middle Temple and again, Clover Hill.

On his [Prefairy] dam's side, Foxhunter and another Bay Ronald descendant, Bayardo, plus The Tetrarch appear so although every pedigree is still a gamble, lot's to like about his TB links, particularly if you're aiming at the eventing market.

*Judging* from the pics, both ADS and Jaunty Star are more like middleweight types, than a traditional ID - their pedigrees show there is quite a TB influence - so crossing a TB with a Jaunty Star mare could produce a 3/4 bred type. Of course that would also depend on what the mare's damline is like too, a TB type-dam would bring more quality to the mix.

From the ridden pics, JS seems to be a nice, trainable sort, particularly in the first & third pics and more workmanlike in the second? Depends on what level you intend to aim the youngsters at too?

I'm not aware of any registered dilute sires in the ISH register but included in the colours abbreviation list in the foal register are Cr (cream) Dn (dun) and P (Palomino) so registering foals of those colours isn't a problem, provided the parents paperwork is in order. There was one S1 stallion, Hazelbrook, by the Ben Purple sire, Clontoo Lad, that consistently sired duns/palominos so there are already some part-bred colourful Draughts here.

Nice stallion! Hilly has given you a lot on the breeding - another claim to fame is the dam sire, O'Sullivan. He was a very good stallion AND a full brother to the late, great Grey Macha. O'Sullivan is the sire of RID stallion Barracaberry Orbit (who stands with Slipper) and has also produced some very good pure and part-bred stock.

I had a couple of O'Sullivan mares here for covering a few years ago and they were both very good types. I'm also a HUGE fan of Grey Macha - my best foundation mare was by him and I have a mare by Slipper out of her, as well as 3 daughters by my own stallion. The Slipper mare is not the most typey of her progeny but a lovely mare who really MOVES!

The Tetrarch is also in the pedigree of the Grange Bouncer RID who was an A Grade showjumper. A few years ago I bought a youngster from Ireland by Grange Bouncer who had the famous Tetrarch spots! Very pretty - and could he move!

She is priced at $6500.00 and I might be interested in a partial trade for a nice hunter type broodmare as well
