An outstanding colt by the stakes winning TB sire WATCHMAN. Watchamacammit with his blaze and matching stockings as well as the white patch on his belly that many of the Precipitation/Furioso’s horses had, he is a sire with a great future. He will be started under saddle this year with a view to competing in the age series as a 5 year old in 2012. With size in his background, he is a good choice for the smaller mare.

Watchamacallit LS is a superb jumping talent. Even as a two year old when these photos were taken, he showed an amazing quick action with his front legs keeping them well away from the jump. While extravagant in the air he gives over the jumps, he is still keen and showed no hesitation in the loosejumping. He is bold, careful and really tucks up those knees - all the things you need to produce top horses for eventing and jumping. Remember, he is 3/4 thoroughbred so has that "blood" that the overseas riders have found valuable in their top jumping horses.

Sire

WATCHMAN was a top racehorse with 10 wins from 1200 to 2450m including 2 Stakes wins & Aus $147,000. He is a very athletic horse with beautiful paces and excellent muscling. His pedigree is impeccable including AGRICOLA (dam sire of Brilliant Invader the sire of WEG Champion Eventer Ready Teddy and is of interest recently as the sire of the dam of NZ’s showjumper of the moment, Delphi who placed 6th = in the recent World Cup finals) and to top NZ thoroughbred broodmare sire ONCIDIUM. A real bonus is that his female (bottom) line traces directly back to MAUREEN who was the dam of FURIOSO xx - acknowledged as the most influential TB sire used in warmblood breeding in Europe. His pedigree includes a similar cross of Precipitation as the great Furioso xx but with the added value of Hyperion in the dam line as well.

Dam

DENISE LS is a tall and very attractive mare, DENISE has top bloodlines being by the legendary DISTELFINK (NZs top showjumping sire for more than 14 years) out of the same mare as past stud sire TRIBUNE. Denise herself was highly rated undersaddle as a jumper in her early years but was put to stud instead. Her first foal BE HAPPY LS competed in Auckland with a young rider. She proved a difficult breeder but was kept on as she was the best looking mare on the place and every year we kept hoping would be the one! She was a tall, elegeant mare with great quality and charm. After 9 years without a foal and the dedicated work of Victoria through Syenz Equine Reproduction, the mare had Timbuktu LS by Tiger Moth LS in 2005 an exceptionally talented young horse that will be out this season. Then in 2007 she had this young colt and also now has a beautiful weanling filly by Hula Town.
