Apollo left as a yearling, so I don't have a ton of info on him. Through his new owner, I do know he is an enthusiastic jumper with a great mind and lots of jump.
Ace has been a hardworking guy his whole life, jumping in over a hundred grand prixs. We are his retirement home, and we love having him. His babies are sweet, kind and easy to train. They also have his elegant, cadenced movement. Ace’s dad is Ahorn Z. Ahorn Z became an international jumping legend with the Dutch team competing in many World Cups and Grand Prix. He is famous for producing international show jumpers and breeding stallions, including Acord I, Acord II, and Acord III. Ahorn Z transmits courage, determined character and sincere force and structure without removing class. Ahorn's dam, Heureka, competed internationally and had many wins in Hamburg, Aachen, Bruxelles, Noerten-Hardenberg, Vienna, and Berlin, and won the Grand Prix of Aachen. She was one of the most successful international jumpers in the period 1969-71, and is ranked as one of the best broodmares in the world. Ace’s mom is by Calypso I. Calypso I produced both dressage stars as well as international jumpers. He is said to be one of the most significant sires and most uniform producer of elegant performance horses. He is considered an important pre-potent sire that consistently produced fabulous gaits and scopey movements in his get. He has 10 stallion sons and over 140 approved daughters.
His mom, Chi chi, was an exceptional producer for us, but has since passed away. She produced 10 foals in total. Five were pure bred thoroughbreds, 3 of which we trained prior to having the opportunity to purchase this lovely mare with her 5th foal at side. She was such a consistent producer of ability and temperament that we jumped at the chance. She went on to produce 5 more warmblood foals for us. Big League RPH(sold), Bennington RPH, Apollo RPH(Sold), Darkwing RPH(Sold) and Lollipop RPH who we plan to keep to take her mothers place in our breeding barn. Every foal she had has had an incredible mind, an aptitude for jumping and a big bold heart. She greatly improved our breeding program, and we are thankful that we had the opportunity to have her here.
