The result of generations of breeding for excellence in sport, SF D'Artagnon combines the top bloodlines of our foundation stallions Der Graf and Le Mode, as well as our grand producing mare Summit Peak! D'Artagnon is by our imported Donnerhall son Der Graf, out of the Le Mode daughter Leda, and we think he's truly inherited the best of both parents.
Showing serious potential for the jumper ring as well as light, uphill movement, D'Artagnon scored 8.6 overall at his keuring, for a Gold Premium, and tied for #2 colt in the nation. He scored 9 on movement -- see him in motion and you'll understand why. This elegant prospect moves always uphill, with innate suppleness and swing. His canter is particularly excellent, with superb flying changes. And his free jump is catty and clean and athletic.
SF D'Artagnon's pedigree speaks for itself. We're proud of his damline -- Leda is by our wonderfully versatile imported FEI dressae stallion Le Mode, and out of our grand old mare Summit Peak (Event and jumper performer), who has produced two licensed stallions - Ishmael by Rainbow, and SF Darius by Der Graf. As well as her most famous offspring, the Grand Prix star Sympa, a Zweibrucker mare by the Holsteiner stallion Sabotage, ridden by Daniel Geitner.
This family famous decends from the line of TB-23. Summit Peak is a daughter of the blue hen mare Shirlee Steel xx. Producer the ATA approved stallion Cloned Steel xx, and Pan Am Games Eventing mare Landlady by Landslide.
D'Artagnon's sire Der Graf's pedigree reads like a who's who of the sporthorse world. His sire, Donnerhall has had a huge influence on breeding and sport. 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. The damline of Der Graf has produced 33 licensed stallions to date. This gelding is truly a top prospect for the jumper ring or eventing, and he also moves well enough to be a contender in the dressage ring. We would be very excited to see him shown in the young horse classes. His potential is huge, and the promise of his genetics unmistakeable.
