The line descending from one of the stud's most successful mares SOVERLETTE a tb by the known jumping sire SO VAIN will prove this horse is a natural talent in competition. Specifically SOVERLETTE produced top jumpers and eventers including DENVER, DAKOTA, DALLAS COWBOY & DEALER. 

This young horse himself is very correct in his conformation with a beautiful strong topline. We rate this young colt as one of our top sales prospects. This is an outstanding prospect for anyone looking for movement and jumping ability with a temperment to match. 

Sire

CRUSADER LS this exciting young sire represents two of the country's most successful bloodlines (aside from the DISTELFINK bloodline) in New Zealand in BRILLIANT INVADER and CENTAVOS.

He was bred specifically as an outcross for the Longspring mares - He has a super jumping syle with power and presentce that he is passing on to his progeny.

Tigerlette LS is by TIGER MOTH LS who is out of a full sister to the legendary JEEP SUPER MOTH who won more than 75 classes including 44 at GP level and is by TRIBUNE who is a TB with the valuable French bloodlines going back to Veux Manoir. Tribune was by TRIC TRAC who still holds a major place on the NZ all time career wins for showjumping progeny notably because of his sons NATIONWIDE and MR KINCAID; and eventer KIWI who was on the Australian Event Team with Andrew Hoy.  NATIONWIDE won the Horse of the Year title twice with Maurice Beatson and MR KINCAID once.

TRIBUNE himself produced notable offspring including CHIEF JUSTICE bred by Jenny & Campbell Draper who was a top young event horse before being sold to Australia for top money.
