This February 2017 chestnut colt is a definite stallion prospect, with exemplary conformation and some world beating paces. He was recently assessed by Gerd Kuest in the ACE Group 2017 assessment tour and scored 8.5s for neck, saddle position, shoulder, frame and top line, with an 8 for overall type and a 9 for walk. Zip had an overall score of 78.5% (Premium). His dam was also classified into the Main Mare Studbook, scoring 79.5% for movement.
Comments from the assessor include “well framed, uphill constructed young colt, long uphill set neck, big shoulder, good topline”.
Transpacific’s sire is a fully licensed warmblood stallion by Royal Hit (Imp, dec). LL Tyranny has been ACE assessed and awarded 8s for neck, forehand, foreleg, walk, trot, canter, swing and elasticity and overall appearance, with an overall score of 79% under saddle. He has so far sired three Premium foals, including this colt.
Tyranny had his dressage debut in March 2016, scoring 72% and 73% in both his tests, to win Reserve Champion against experienced horses in a large field at the Horseland Canberra Classic. He has never been unplaced, with five firsts, four seconds and a two thirds from 11 tests at Canberra and Clarendon official events. Judges consistently comment on his correct and expressive movement, with especially high marks for his lengthened paces.
Transpacific is an excellent prospect for dressage and showing, and could be used as a registered breeding stallion with his very marketable bloodlines and excellent assessment results.
