Suzie Q LS

Bloodlines and talent in one great package ready to go

Suzie Q LS (by Sunset Sam LS out of Blossom xx by Kyeoi Blossom) is one from the first crop of foals by the late SUNSET SAM LS and like her sire has a tremendous jump and powerful movement. Her mother is a thoroughbred mare by KYEOI BLOSSOM who was a full brother to the top racehorse and eventing sire WESTMINSTER  and of course goes back to GROSVENOR. Her female line also goes back to IN THE PURPLE  a known producer of quality horses both on the racetrack and in equestrian sport.

She has excellent conformation and legs. She moves well and with good rhythm and paces.  Her loose jumping style as you can see on the web video is explosive. She is quick and tidy in her front legs and has a good lift over the jump with her hind legs. Suzie was broken in as a 5 yr olds and had her first ever outing this year at Hawera. She showed impeccable manners and took it all in her stride a really smart mare that likes to please.

This is a mare that we feel would go far in eventing. She always seems happy in her work and ready to oblige the rider. And what a pedigree for a broodmare in the years to come! She is a really easy mare and would suit someone coming off ponies. 

Sire

SUNSET SAM LS has a double cross back to DISTELFINK his sire SAM I AM - a full brother to the top jumper DIOMEDES LS now in Australia. DIOMEDES with rider Phillip Steiner was 1st in 8 classes and placed in another 33 for winnings of close to $15,000. Another full brother to SAM I AM is competing at top level in jumpers in the USA as DEVLIN LS. SUNSET SAM himself was an impressive strong type with excellent jumping technique that he passes on to his progeny oldest crop are from 2005. Sunset Sam sadly had to be put down the winter of 2011.

Dam

BLOSSOM is an attractive bay thoroughbred mare that was bought as a broodmare. She was loose jumped to make sure she was suitable and she was a “WOW” jumper. Her sire Kyoei Bloosom is a full brother to the legendary eventing sire WESTMINSTER and of course goes back to GROSVENOR who has many progeny now eventing at top level as does WESTMINSTER. 

Also in this pedigree is the valuable IN THE PURPLE bloodline that produced many top jumpers – eg UPS AND DOWNS with John Cottle and eventers including HOFFMAN with Lynn King. 

Performance Highlights

Suzie Q LS has been out to one event in 2012 where she displayed a phenomenal jump as evidenced by the photos and attitude. Suzie is currently in work now.
