Standing Ovation (Maurice) 2017

A DOUBLE HOMOZYGOUS COLT STANDING OVATION IS BY OUR LATE GP STALLIION SAMARA FLY


Pictured above with his dam, Longacres Standing Ovation (aka Maurice) stood at 13.1hh at only 14 weeks old. Double homozygous, he is by our beloved Samara Fly (Sambertino x Samber). His dam Eureka; a 17hh Black & White graded Polish Warmblood mare completed to Medium level dressage before joining us as a broodmare. Sold as a foal,  Maurice developed a temporary skin condition before weaning, so his buyer changed her mind.

Now a yearling and fully recovered, he is being retained by us and will spend the next couple of years in our pastures until he is 3-years old. He will then be brought up the same way Samara Fly was, as a future Stallion. prospect. Standing Ovation will be nurtured, educated and carefully produced to follow in his famous sire’s footsteps. With no pressure and time to mature he will no doubt take everything in his stride.
