Sire, Doctor Wendell MF recently won the Grand Prix and the Grand Prix Freestyle at the Russian Cup with a 76.5%, which earned him the title of the overall Russian GP National Champion!
As a youngster Doctor Wendell MF (by Don Principe out of Stellar Hit MF (by Sandro Hit) was first competed by Michael Bragdell and Chris Hickey before Jim Koford made him shine. Under Hickey he scored his first double victory in the 6-year old young horse class at the 2014 CDI Wellington. Chris showed the stallion for the rest of the spring season, when Doctor Wendell was stationed for breeding at Hilltop Farm.
In the summer Jim Koford took over the ride and immediately scored a fifth place at the 2014 U.S. Young Horse Championships in the 6-year old division. Koford trained the stallion up to Grand Prix level. In 2015 they were third in the Prix St Georges at the 2015 U.S. Developing Prix St Georges horse championships and went on to compete at their only international, the 2015 CDI Devon, where they were third in the Prix St Georges and fourth in the Intermediaire I. They concluded the year with the Prix St Georges title at the 2015 U.S. Dressage Finals in Lexington. In 2016 they were fifth at the U.S. Developing Grand Prix Horse Championships in Wayne, IL.
Dam, Winnifred HL "Winnie" and her offspring are steady-minded, yet quick off the leg. (It is easy to find a steady, lazy horse or a quick, spooky horse- but the combination of steady and quick is rare!) Winnie's 2016 daughter by Rubignon sold as a child's horse, and her 2018 son by Herzendieb is in training with a Pan-Am trainer in Florida. Winnie herself was green broke as a five-year-old, was a broodmare and unridden for seven years, then sold as a riding horse to an amateur after less than ten rides back under saddle.
Winnie's dam, Fantasy competed up thru fourth level and her dam, Davinia produced the Grand Prix Hanoverian stallion Richmond HL (Rotspon).
