We're very excited about Ducati! He is liver (chocolate; looks black in fall/winter), with a star, and put together very well. He is out of one of our best Swedish mares, Iron Maiden, and by our World Class stallion, Donnermeyer (who is by De Niro, a Donnerhall son). His half brother, Akkurat, was ranked the 2nd best 2-year-old in 2001, by the USDF. He has excellent conformation, a beautiful head, and very suspended, lofty movement. Ducati has a very sweet and willing personality, and loves people. He should mature to 16-16.2 hands, be of medium build, and do well in Dressage, Eventing, or Hunter/Jumper. In fact, the older he gets, the more he reminds me of his sire, so he should do really well.


Congratulations, Heather Simonek, of Fallbrook, CA!

Trained and ridden by Cathleen Farmer Plaza, who says he is "a very special horse...such a love and so intelligent".
