Trakehner event foal, Fleetwater Opposition lines

Saxy Optimist - black pure-bred Trakehner colt foal born 29/06/2011. A rare chance to purchase a truly exciting foal, who is line-bred to OPUSHKA, the Fleetwater stud's, Elite, graded Trakehner foundation mare (mother of Fleetwater Opposition). He is by BSJA grade A showjumper and Intermediete eventer, UTOPIAN OPPOSITION, who was also by FLEETWATER OPPOSITION, who has many offspring competing at the top level in SJ and eventing. His mother is FLEETWATER VITESSE - a graded, pink-papered, branded Trakehner mare with 81 British Dressage points, who competed at medium level dressage. Vitesse was also trained to drive by Karen Bassett before starting her dressage career. Vitesse is out of the Trakehner mare, Verushka, who was the maternal sister to FLEETWATER OPPOSITION! Fleetwater Opposition ranks within the top 10 of the WBFSH world rankings for eventing progeny - based on the success of his offspring eventing.


We have purposely duplicated the elite mare OPUSHKA, in the 3rd generation of his pedigree, as doubling up on a talented horse in this generation has been studied and shown to produce winners/talented horses. Although pure Trakehner, his pedigree carries a percentage of Thoroughbred xx blood - through Vitesse's damsire, Silver Chest xx.


Optimist is extremely handsome, well-conformed and straight moving, with exceptional uphill extravagent paces. He is friendly, inquisitive and full of energy. His paces are good enough to do pure-dressage, although in our opinion his jumpoing potential would go to waste!


We expect him to make 16.1-16.2hh


He has been entered and will be presented at the BEF Futurity gradings in the eventing category, at Arena UK, Lincolnshire UK on the 28th July 2011 - he can be viewed there  (with his dam) or at home by arrangement with us.


A deposit will secure until weaning (October).
