Grenadine, our Hanoverian
MSB mare by Genever/Pik Koenig, is in foal to the legendary sire
Raphael, by Ramiro/AbhangI.
Raphael began his stud career in the Oldenburg breeding are, demonstrating
his prowess as a sire from the start. He regularly procreated new
top horses for all riding divisions even with mares of diverse quality
and has often produced prime horses for the Vechta and Verdan auctions.
He has advanced to a stallion of world repute, top international
riders value the quality of Raphael offspring. These include Ramina,
Ricci, Rockefeller, Raphaelo, Robinson and many more. Raphael has
proved himself numerous approved sons, such as: performance test
winners Ravallo and Ragazzo; Radiator, ridden by rene Tebbel is
currently one of the most successful stallions in international
showjumping; and Canada's own Rio Grande, who himself won his performance
test, and shows very successfully in international showjumping,
qualifying for the 1996 Olympics. The gelding Millcreek's Raphael
is an extreamly successful showjumper under Eric lamaze. We anxiously
await the arrival of this foal in July, 2002.
