‘What is the recipe for making my own Valegro?’ The Horse Magazine asked Carl Hester, trainer of Charlotte Dujardin.
'We know from a lot of the horses we’ve had, that if you can find your Ferro lines, then you are going to get a high level of work ethic, so that’s where you start.’
And so you start right here, with an Olympic Ferro mare as the dam of this majestic Byalee Briar colt, arguably the ‘best’ bred Briar on the ground to date, and boy can he move! Add to this the bottom line of Flemmingh and you would be hard pushed to find better Olympic breeding. Flemmingh is the sire of international Dutch dressage horses Krack C and Lingh (Edward Gal) while Ferro was the ‘black pearl’ was an Olympic silver medallist at Sydney 2000.
In fact, Bestie's dam was a PSG horse sold for $90,000 in her prime and is one of our best-performed broodmares.
‘Bestie’ is by Byalee Briar, sired by Bjorsells Briar 899, who was the world’s number one dressage stallion for seven years. Byalee Briar's top-priced offspring to date is the buckskin gelding Byalee Breathless who sold for $72,600!
Bestie is not only a stunning mover but a bold, friendly chap who has been rugged, stabled, turned out with a friend, and an absolute pleasure to prepare for the auction, taking all aspects of the weaning process in his stride and showing a sensible attitude that augurs well for his professional dressage career. With the blessing of Carl Hester and the breeding and temperament, how could he fail?! He's named 'Best' for a reason!
Serious prospective buyers should PM for a guide to the reserve.
