|Chosen One DF|
Hallelujah DF was the only other youngster of the day to match the high score of Chosen One DF. Her larger-than-life personality makes her a real eye catcher, as she takes full command of any ring she is in. This yearling filly was recognized as a Premium and was highly admired by the judge and spectators. She is a half sibling to both Chosen One and Incantare, being by Mighty Magic and out of Colombia. Her floating movement, confidence and style, and jumping background should make her very successful in any sport she enters.
|Lady's Comet xx|
Lady's Comet xx was presented and entered into the American Holsteiner's Main Mare Book as a Premium. By the late and great Comet Shine, she has several members in her family that have been highly successful as eventers. She was shown with her Oldenburg colt, Fürstenshine DF, at her side, who will be presented later this month at the Oldenburg testing.

Also receiving Premium status in the Main Mare Book, was Colombia (aka Cheerleader DF). By Diarado and out of a Cassini II mare, "Kitty" showed just how strong her family lines are by quietly but very easily jumping out of the arena, twice! She showed a great natural eye and impeccable form during her impromptu jumping display.
|Crimson Twain DF xx|
Another full Thoroughbred that entered into the Holsteiner's Main Mare Book was Crimson Twain DF. Dam of Incantare DF, "Cherry" offers very valuable blood through her sire, The Twain, to improve and lighten lines.
The successful former 1* Event mare, Vanity, also entered into the Main Mare Book. By Liostro and out of a Sabotage mare, Vanity has the "greats" of Holsteiner breeding up close in her pedigree.
The Merit foal, Ducati, is purpose bred for eventing and has the willing attitude required for the rigors of upper level training. By Dolany and out of the newly minted Premium Mare, Apple of Sam's Eye xx, this colt is smooth, balanced, and very good natured. He has a bright future ahead of him with owner, Cori Davis.
