This is ONE
SPECIAL and RARE Ster Mare!!! Helena's dam, Helina-Ster+Preferent, is a FULL
sister to Anton's Dam. She was bred by Anton's owner and raised in the same
stable with Anton for her entire show career in Holland. Anton was ranked the highest for offspring performance last year
and sold, reportedly, for a record sum of 1.2 million euros, during the 2004
Stallion Show. You can't get much better than having a mare that is a full
sister to the mom of the hottest Approved stallion to recently be imported to
the US!! It doesn't stop there...Helena's motherline is TO DIE FOR. It is NOT
just unbroken ster predicates, her dam is STER+PREF, her grandmother is
STER+PREF, Great Grandmother is Model+PREF, and Gr Gr Grandmother is Model+PREF.
The STER predicate indicates the mares are considered the top 15% of all mares
for their conformation and movement. The PREFERENT title is even more indicative
of what kind of babies you can expect from Helena.
Preferent means every single one of her predecessors has produced at least 4 STER offspring!!! This is the kind of pedigree the Dutch Judges like to see in APPROVED stallions.
Helena is a PROVEN producer. She has had 5 foals...a Rypke daughter that was champion of her keuring and became STER with a 1st premie!! She has a Feitse son that was twice at the stallion show in Leewarden and sold for a large sum, and went to Germany.
Helena is from stam Line 50, the best Dutch breeding-line and that from which the most approved stallions come!!
And that's not all....Helena is the highest level dressage mare This pregnant momma has been competing and WINNING against warmbloods, in M2 level competition [translates to 3rd level in the US] and is ready to begin Z level. AND we really think this mare has the talent to go even higher!!! Helena is a proven top dressage competitor, and imagine where she would be if she hadn't taken time out to have those 5 foals!
She will have a beautiful foal due April 11, 2005.
