British Breeding Futurity Graduate, Lordships Graffalo, takes 2nd spot at Badminton Horse Trials

The very exciting British Bred 10yr old ably produced and competed by Ros Canter,  cruised to 2 nd place at the recent Badminton Horse Trials showing class and poise beyond his years.   Hailed as ‘one of the most exciting up and coming International horses on the eventing scene’ by Iain Stark on Badminton.tv. we all look forward to watching his future eagerly. He was Bred by the Lordships Stud at Writtle College in Essex who were loaned his dam, Cornish Queen,   by owner Pennie Wallace of Pencos Sport Horses.He is by the Trakehner Stallion, Grafenstolz, who has sired many leading British Breeding Futurity young event horses and is currently standing 3 rd in the World Breeding Federation of Sport Horses Eventing Sires. His Breeding is made up of a top class eventing damline ; His dam, Cornish Queen has not only bred the top class Lordships Graffalo but also Pencos Crown Jewel  (by Jumbo) who is also based with Ros Canter and has already had a win at Advanced this season, a double clear at Thoresby CCI-S 4* and she now heads to Chatworth CCI-S 4*. She also has a young colt (2018)  by Chill Morning, Pencos Arctic King,  who is a British Breeding Graduate gaining a GOLD award as a2yo. He has now gone to start his competitive training. Cornish Queen is out of the fabulous mare CORNISH FAER (Ben FAERIE ex TREGEA) . Cornish Faer was competed by Katie Burton (daughter of Bridget Parker who was an instrumental member of the Gold Medal winning Eventing team in Munich in 1972)  and was placed 11 th at Blenheim in 1994, Badminton in 1995 (25 th ) , 11 th at   Burghley Horse Trials in 1996 and also competed at Badminton in 1996 & 1997. She went on to become a prolific dam of event horses. Her dam, Tregea, produced 5 Advanced eventers and her grand-dam, April The First, was a Grade A showjumper who jumped 7’ in the Puissance at HOYS. She also produced 2 x CCI**** horses and a Grade A Showjumpper. This really emphasises the importance of breeding from strong dam lines with proven performance. A good broodmare will keep producing good progeny from a range of good stallions. Lordships Graffalo was presented to the British Breeding Futurity as a foal and a two year old; both times scoring a Higher First (or Gold equivalent today) in the Eventing section.   Photo credit - Writtle University for more on Lordships Graffalo
