Any of you racing guys know this stallion? He is by Queens Hussar (sire of or 1/2 brother to Brigadier Gerrard not sure which). I had a mare by him that I bred my WB X out of. Just interested because I have no info on him or what he did or produced. Thanks :-)

Don't know what he has produced as far as race stock goes but several years ago I bought a super cheap horse by him because the choice from the racing stable was - 'If you aren't interested (I wasn't) we are sending him to the market tommorrow'. So I made them a silly offer for the horse and they took it.
Brought him home and what a find he turned out to be. Super temprement and move!!!! He had this super elastic stride. I sold him to a girl who did dressage and who saw him one day when I was working him. Margaret Mc Ivor saw him the very next day and said Wow. He ended up being sold for the price of a deposit on a small house to another dressage lady and from what I have been told the only thing that stopped him from being a Grand Prix horse was his owners lack of skill.

Have looked at the website Rocking, thanks for that.
How exciting retired! Hope it came from the dad's side! Mine was also a lovely mare, good conformation, temperament, don't think the movement was stunning but it was good enough. Do you know where this horse of your is now?
