Damsel's 2014 In-Utero Foal by Wild Dance is entered in the -- 2nd Annual Solomon Farm Online Auction -- Bids Open Oct 31st and Close Nov 6th. Check It Out!
NEW -- Confirmed in foal to Wild Dance, from Rainbow Equus Meadows! This 16.2 hand mare by Der Graf, out of V.Pr.St.Moonbeam Lady xx is both substantial, and absolutely lovely in her conformation and type, and is a powerfully through and elastic mover, producing foals suitable both for the dressage and hunter ring. Her coming 2014 foal by Wild Dance (Wolkenstein II/Matcho x/Goldstein) is destined to be a dressage rider's dream, with this powerful combination of Donnerhall x Pik Koenig - Graphit/Gottard and then TB motherline from Damsel, with Wild Dance's top combination of Wolkenstein II/Matcho - and again G-line on the bottom.
Damsel scored 50 points for Premium Mare at her RPSI Mare Inspection. She is a quality mare with an impressive record of producing Gold and Silver Premium foals. Damsel's foals are always stunning in type, with solid conformation and nicely developed necks and toplines. In movement they are uphill with super canters and rhythmic, floaty trots.
Damsel's 2014 in-utero foal is by Wild Dance, a 16.2 hh Hanoverian FEI performer with many wins and placings and already multiple offspring at Grand Prix Level. Winner of the 100-day stallion testing in Germany with over 140 points! Although he is a fantastic mover, he also received a 9 on jumping. Wild Dance is by one of the best Weltmeyer sons, Wolkenstein II, out of a States Premium mare by Matcho AA. This bloodline combination has proven exceptional. His father, Wolkenstein II, was also the winner of his stallion performance testing. Leoni Bramall and Hubertus Schmidt both publicly stated that Wild Dance has an exceptional temperament and willingness to work.
Wild Dance who placed fourth in the Bundeschampionat as a youngster, has an impressive FEI show record. In 2005, with Hubertus Schmidt, he was the Reserve Champion at the 2005 Neurenberger BurgPokal Finals, a prestigious show circuit in Germany for seven to nine year dressage horses competing at Prix St. Georges. Wild Dance and rider Hubertus Schmidt had the highest qualifying scores, routinely scoring above 75%. After a $1.7 million sale Wild Dance sadly got injured slipping on ice which has kept him from furthering his Grand Prix career.
Damsel's sire Der Graf's pedigree reads like a who's who of the sporthorse world. His sire, Donnerhall, could be the most successful dressage stallion of all time. Not only was he a many time champion at the Grand Prix level, but he was German National Champion in 1994, a World Cup champion, a member of the Gold medal German team in two World Championships, as well as the bronze medal winner individually. Donnerhall's breeding career, like his show career, is too long for me to list.
The damline of Der Graf, Hannover Stamm of 620, has produced 33 licensed stallions to date including the Grand Prix winner Beldonwelt by De Niro, Donatelli I & II by Donnerhall, and the upcoming stars Beltano by Belissimo M, and Slibovitz by Sarkozy. Other successful offspring of Stamm 620 include the lovely Belle Fleur by Brietling W who competes at grand prix dressage, and the meter 1.30 jumper Casimir by Chasseur.
Der Graf’s Dam, Princess heralds from a regale line of mares. Grand-dam Gina is full sister to the stallion Grandus by Graphit. Gina produced the Hannoverian Stallion Piccadilly by Pik Koenig, States premium mare Pikperle by Pik Koenig, and 1.20 jumper mare Marokko by Matcho X. Other daughter branches from Gina have continued her legacy with sires such as Jalisco B, Bergamon, and Sandro
