HORSES International breeds to Kentucky Derby Winner
Kentucky Derby

        The non-profit organisation HORSES International has arranged with Ashford Farm - Coolmore Stallions to breed a mare to the Kentucky Derby Winning Stallion FUSAICHI PEGASUS, as part of the student program. Having only one thoroughbred mare in our program, and that she is such a well bred mare, we did exhaustive research to ensure we selected a stallion that would warranty a foal that would race on TV. HEIDI'S HOLIDAY pedigree is a who's who of some of the greatest horses: her sire HARLANS HOLIDAY was the favorite in the Kentucky Derby, her Granmma's father THUNDER GULCH won both the Kentucky Derby and the Belmont Stakes, her other Grandma's father was Triple Crown Champion AFFIRMED , her 3rd Dam's father was SEATTLE SLEW a Triple Crown Champion and her 4th Dam's father was Belmont Stakes Winner STAGE DOOR JOHNNY. Adding another Champion to the foals pedigree is an amazing opportunity.

        Chaplain Brad said: "We're so pleased, Heidi is royally bred and she's probably the only member of our group that deserved an all expenses paid trip to Kentucky, LOL. But seriously, it's such an amazing opportunity to have the son or daughter of a Kentucky Derby Champion to be raised here in Southwestern Ontario. Like every expecting parent-to-be, We are all praying to God that her foal is born healthy with 4 straight legs and a cheerful character".
