Distelfink leading Broodmare Sire at Breeders Show

The legend of Distelfink lives on through the pedigrees of his daughters who are proving to be valuable broodmares.

At the 2010 Young Horse Showjumping Championships held in Taupo over Easter, Distelfink earned the title of Leading Broodmare Sire where his 11 progeny earned 72 points well head of the next stallions on the leaderboard Indoctro, Urban, Moon Spirit and Kings Gambutt on 25 points each.

His best performed offspring was Eon, a multi talented 4 year old who finished 2nd in the 4 Year Old Championship with rider Tessa Williams. Eon came back to Taupo a month later and won the Young Event Horse Competition for his breeder/owner Sarah Milne.

Also finishing well at the Young Horse Showjumping Championships was Dunstan Springfield who finished 5th in the 5 Year Old Championship with Katie McVean.
