Congratulations Carrie!

Gary Glitter

Congratulations to Carrie McElvain of Billings, Montana on her purchase of Gary Glitter! This eye catching beauty is as smooth as silk and such a doll to ride, we just know that Carrie will have years of fun with him on the event circuit under the watchful and expert eye of her trainer, Martha McDowell. She will also be able to enjoy long hacks with Gary in big sky country, since he is so wonderful to ride out. Congratulations!

Congratulations Erin!

Soul Twain DF and his dam, Lady's Comet

We would like to send out a huge congratulations to Dan and Erin Serafini of Star Street Farm, on the purchase of the 2015 inutero foal by The Twain and out of Lady's Comet. This baby is the full sibling to sensational stallion prospect, Soul Twain DF (owned by Natalie Jensen). This foal brings the finest of Thoroughbred sport horse blood to the forefront, with champion eventers on both sides of the pedigree. The sire side represents over 40 current WEG, Olympic, and Four Star top ten finishers, as well as the 2013 USEA YEH Four-Year-Old Champion, Classic Twain DF. The dam is a sister to the incomparable American Champion, Courageous Comet, who has represented the United States at the highest levels of Eventing.

Star Street Farm looks to breed and produce sport horses that will make the Europeans envious, and we think they will be well on their way with this foal. Combine these top lines with the vision and skillful handling of Erin, and you have a recipe for horses that will be contenders for Team spots! We simply couldn't be more excited to have a fellow West-Coaster looking to improve what the US produces for the Eventing market. Video reference: Soul Twain DF
