They have had a connection since day one. His balance and strong conformation made him a natural for the show ring. Shown to two GRANDS as a yearling, adding another this year proves this GRAND Senior Stallion has what it takes to be a Champion.

Michael and Carol look forward to seeing what this wonderful stallion produces with his first foal crop this spring.
