Fürstenshine DF Takes Top Honors at Oldenburg Inspection

Fürstenshine DF
The very well attended Oldenburg Inspection at Starr Vaughn this September was the debut of Fürstenshine DF, and true to his name, he was the star of the show. He is by Europe's most sensational sire, Fürstenball, and out of America's impeccably bred Thoroughbred, Lady's Comet. In his very first outing off of the farm, the precocious colt showed his correct conformation, brilliant movement, and star quality with gusto.

Both mare and colt were presented and Lady's Comet was entered into the Main Mare Book (she is also  Main Mare Book Premium for Holsteiners), and both greatly impressed judge, Helmut Schrant. Out of the 14 foals presented that day, 9 were colts. Fürstenshine was the only colt that made Premium and was ultimately awarded the Champion High Score Foal tricolor. Judge Schrant commented to the crowd about the quality of both of these fine examples from Dragonfire.

Young "Shawn" handled the long day with ease and pleasure, showing his great character and willing temperament. He is the "whole package", as they say, and the sky is certainly the limit for this elegant young colt. Owned by Elizabeth Thieriot, he will make an impact in any arena.
