Troy LS

Scopey young jumper now competing with Anna Parsons in the Age Series

Troy LS (Tiger Moth LS – Dolly LS by Distelfink) is out of a mare bred on a similar cross to the international eventer GV Braveheart (Distelfink – Aureatta by Aureate II) that was placed 7th in the 1998 WEG with Australian rider Olivia Bunn but with a cross to Novel Kingdom being the sire of John Cottle’s Grand Prix showjumper Watch Me. He is a beautiful big strong horse with an attractive face, blaze and event stockings behind, Troy is a real eyecatcher. His movement is outstanding as is his jumping.

Sire 

TIGER MOTH LS 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. 

Dam

Dolly LS is a very tall mare with a beautiful pedigree. Dolly LS is bred on a similar cross to the international eventer GV Braveheart (Distelfink – Aureatta by Aureate II) that was placed 7th in the 1998 WEG with Australian rider Olivia Bunn but with a cross to Novel Kingdom in the middle – Novel Kingdom being the sire of John Cottle’s Grand Prix showjumper Watch Me.

The stud has retained two sisters one Supernova LS 2006 that will be one to watch out for at shows the other has been retained as a broodmare and has already produced two beautiful Blood sisters to Troy. This is a very fertile family that tends to produce fillies kept for breeding as opposed to competing!

Information

This family tends to throw size and lovely movement and Troy LS is typical. With the added cross back to Distelfink, he carries some of the best bloodlines available in NZ. He is one of the stable favourites with his impeccable and lovable nature. Troy LS is an amazing powerful horse with really big elevated movement. Again he has a superb jumping style with a particularly amazing front end. He is a particularly striking looking with lots of white and a big kind eye. 

Troy LS was broken in as a late four year old and is now out jumping with Anna Parsons currently upto 1.30 with plently of scope to go much further.  He has an impressive jump and is an ideal prospect for a junior or young rider that would also like to targeting the Grandprix series later. Mind you, his dressage like movement is bound to attract attention from that discipline! Troy LS was competed in the ridden classes at the Horse of the Year Show as one of his first outings winning the jumping type and placing in the eventing type and Dressage classes for 4 Year Old Sport Horses.
