We have carefully selected our broodmares based on type, temperament, confirmation
and bloodlines. Below we have provided information about the bloodlines represented
by our broodmare stock.
Cruising is one of the best stallions in the world of breeding today, both for his
own past performances and for performances of his offspring, which include many Grand
Prix winners such as Cruise Line, Cruise Missile, Rincoola Abu, Point Blank, Free
Trader, Simply Cruising, Sails Away, and Sail Rain to name but a few. Not only has
Cruising’s offspring proven themselves in the show jumping circuit but they are also
proving to be a most versatile breed in other equestrian disciplines of eventing
and dressage. Cruising has shown himself to be a remarkable talent and tremendous
versatility. Over the last 8 years of his career Cruising was at the top of his profession,
8th at the 1998 WEG, 7th at the 1997 European Championships, won 3 world cup qualifies
and was 2nd in the finals in Gottenburg in 1999, never having a fence down. He is
the winner of several international Grand Prix competitions including Wolfsburg,
San Marino, Lucerne, Dortmund and Aachen. Sea Crest (Cruising's sire) was a registered
Irish Draught stallion and a Grade 'A' showjumper with Edward Doyle. Sea Crest was
also responsible to numerous successful progeny and many at International level competing
showjumping and Eventing.
Better Boy is sired by the Djebel son, My Babu. Djebel is a descendent of Bay Ronald.
Better Boy is descended again from Bay Ronald on his dam's side. Better Boy has been
an influential sire of jumping horses.
Monopol was one of the first warmblood stallions imported into Australia. As such,
he has proven invaluable as a foundation sire for the modern Australian Warmblood
industry. He has many successful progeny which includes 2 of his sons, Heini and
Monokol. Monopol's sire, Moltke is considered to be "The Great Sire of Rideability"
in Germany and Moltke left quite a number of Top International Show Jumpers in Germany
after only 2 seasons in Holstein. Moltke also sire the dams of many famous stallions
such as Lagos, the sire of Land of Kings. Monopol’s genetics are also represented
in famous competition horses such as Grand Prix horse Supertramp, FEI horse Barncleuth
Harvest Moon, Mongold FEI horse Moneton and Olympic Showjumping prospect Wirragulla
Sir Tristram Sir Gaylord Sir Ivor
The prolific Sir Tristram- Sir Ivor Sir Gaylord lines have produced countless numbers
of top level performance horses both in showjumping and eventing. These bloodlines
are keenly sought after and are getting harder to find. This line has produced the
likes of Eros, Odds On, Double Up, and sires such as Family Ties. Look back in the
pedigrees of many top jumpers and you won’t be surprised to see these lines as well.
Agricola Precipitation Hyperion Summertime
Agricola, was an outstanding sire who produced well-known jumpers including Australian
Vicki Roycroft's great showjumper, Apache. Agricola was one of the last sons of Precipitation,
who was perhaps the most influential jumping sire of them all, through his son Furioso,
whose stallion sons dominated jumping breeding in France, Germany, Holland and Belgium
for many years. Agricola's dam Aurora was by Hyperion.
Precipitation is perhaps the most influential sire of all, and while his influence
on jumping horses has long been recognised, some of the most exciting dressage horses
in the world today trace their ancestry to this great sire. But it is not just in
the jumping world that the Precipitation blood comes through. The Oldenburg stallion,
Welt As - sire of World Champion, Olympic Bonfire - is out of Elfene, by Furioso
11, and Anky van Grunsven's other great dressage horse, Olympic Cocktail, is by Purioso,
by Furioso xx. Purioso is also the sire of the Showjumper, Henderson Gammon, and
the French dressage team horse, Arnoldo Thor.
In the Southern hemisphere, Precipitation has mainly exerted his influence on the
racetrack. His three New Zealand based sons, Count Rendered, Summertime and Agricola
were all top racing sires - and the Agricola son, Apache, showed that the stallion
could produce international level showjumpers.
Brilliant Invader has sired many top performance horses including Ready Teddy (Olympic
Gold Medallist with Blyth Tait of NZ), Mousetrap, Marine Park Invader and Street
Talk. There are a number of other well known horses in Australia also carrying these
bloodlines including Koyuna Sun Shine, Sun Dancer, Sun Storm, Woodmount Crusader
and Koyuna Ted. It is not surprising in retrospect that Brilliant Invader has sired
so many great jumpers; his blood includes the great Precipitation, possibly one of
the most influential jumping sires of all time.
Ludendorf, who stood at 17.2hh, re wrote the hitory books by becoming an advanced
eventer as well as a Grand Prix dressage horse. He has sired countless Grand Prix
showjumpers and dressage horses and Advanced eventers, many of which have sold overseas
for top prices. He has become the foundation sire for many warmblood horses in Australia
with his progeny being highly sort after and regarded as valuable breeding stock.
