    Default Stallions that did the 100 Day Test

    Some seem to have little current information available.
    Where are they now?
    Do they have performance records, are they breeding, etc?

    Caleb is currently showing in dressage with Claire Darnell. He's qualified for the Region 9 Championships in the SWDC FOURTH LEVEL JR CHAMPIONSHIP, GREAT AM/USDF FOURTH LEVEL JR CHAMP, SWDC THIRD LEVEL JR CHAMPIONSHIP and GREAT AM/USDF THIRD LEVEL JR CHAMP. (sorry for the crazy capitals, I copied off showsecretary.com). Claire has done a terrific job with him.

    If I recall correctly, Le Cavalier was gelded.

    And remember that Caleb's owner place got hit by a tornado not long after the 100DT! So, that set her back some.

    I own Puerto D'Azur, who was the 1998 champion of the 100DT. I was not the owner at the time of the testing, but I can tell you as of currently he is activly breeding and has offspring proving themself worthy in the rated shows. One which is going Advanced now in eventing.

    Our stallion was bred some and Bill Coester show him and trained him up to FEI, but went seperate ways with the old barn who owned him and then Puerto pretty much hung out (literally) and bred for the last 6 yrs. Sad to say, but true.

    I have had a lot of conversations with stallion owners and its a hell of a project to deal with. Im sure Ronda could add in here, but its not always fun. Money that is involved is mind boggling! Ads are enough alone to break you as well as promoting a stallion by showing, training, etc. So in short, I think after the 100DT we dont hear a lot from the SO's because after a while, the money just is not always there.

    I know many are happy with 5-10 breedings a year, just to offset their costs. They dont show or advertise heavy as that would up their overhead through the roof. So, I think that is why some "fall off the planet".........

    Plus, dealing with a stallion each and every day can be a love/hate relationship! Nothing like getting a call from a vet at 6am to tell me he needs a collection that day (time difference and vet got started at early am!) Ughgh! LOL

    This is Puerto as of two days ago - he is still going strong and very happy -

    Donnerstein broke a leg in a pasture accident and was treated but it was too bad of a break to fix and he was euthanized.

    DiVinci, who won the 2002 test, is showing at Grand Prix dressage with scores in the 60's. He also has various offspring out showing - including a 2003 mare scoring in the 70's at Training Level with an AA rider.

    That is really sad. I remember seeing that horse at his Hanoverian foal inspection and thought it was great when he became an approved stallion. I'm sure his owner was devastated, since she had raised him.

    Le Cavalier was gelded and sold as an A hunter. Lots of frozen left and he is still activated with a lot of registries. I think his owner said it was way too expensive to campaign him

    Is this a recent sale for Le Cavalier? I thought the last time I spoke with Emmett he had him back at home, this was before the Chestnut Lawn Farm inspection in Sept. I hope for his sake the gelding is sold!!

    Bernie - I thought he was sold several years ago . Maybe I'm wrong or does Emmet have him back?

    Ditto. I understood this happened several years ago as well.

    I put Le Cavalier on my list as I was unsure about his status. USEF has results for him as a Junior Hunter from 2/2006 till 8/2006 and then nothing after that.
    So he would have been gelded prior to 2/2006.
    USEF's results show Emmett Turner as the owner.
    Perhaps he was sold on or is showing under another name?

    Presidio is owned by my Aunt, and as stated on her website he unfortunately sustained an injury during the 100 day test, so was unable to go to a competition career. He is still breeding, approved with the GOV, and has a stallion on the ground, Prescription, along with having many first premium foals with the GOV.

    Here is a link to his site, http://www.canterbury-court.com/Presidio.html.

    As I stated earlier, in my conversations with Emmett prior to our CLF inspection in mid Sept, he said he had Le Cavalier back at his farm. I know he was in training and showing but don't know if he was ever sold. Nevertheless, Emmett said he was home on the farm.

    As far as I know, Spectrum is still at Silverwood Farm in Virginia. I don't know what his current show record is, though, the most current info on the website only goes through 2000. Maybe Liz Hall will see this thread and comment. http://www.silverwoodfarm.com/spectrum.html

    Does anyone know why he hasn't really done anything since the testing in 2004? He is SUCH an AMAZING stallion! I think we'd all give our right arm to own a horse like that! I'm just wondering why it seems he hasn't gone on to a show career? SOOOOOO much talant! Maybe she's worried he'll get injured?

    By the way, Watch Me, did not score well enough at the stallion testing to be approved by any of the warmblood registries. He was then sold and has gone through several hands since then.

    Applejack died, I believe.

    Amor Reto is still around in Batavia, OH, at http://legacyfarmltd.com/ where he is still making babies after an injury ended his dressage career.
