GFS Thunderstruck

17th May 2018

Geordieland (Johann Quatz/Highest Honor) x Osilvis/Slyguff Joker


Today marked both the beginning of our foaling season and the arrival of this little darling!

Welcome to the world GFS Thunderstruck., so named because for the first twelve hours I had been led to believe he was a she due to somewhat unreliable information given to me at hs birth by someone who should have known better but whose judgement I foolishly trusted!!!!

This beautiful colt by the TB stallion, consistently rated over 120 in racehorses and consistent winner on the track; Geordieland (Johann Quatz x Aerdee - Highest Honor/Final Straw) and out of our very special Lola (Who's Joker - Osilvis (GP Showjumping stallion) x Slyguff Joker/First Consul)

He is jet black although there is every chance that he may have inherited the grey gene that his stunning sire carries...time will tell, but regardless this is one fantastic foal. He is tall, strong, straight, beautifully put together and already showing himself to be both athletic and a little precocious!

With his fabulous bloodlines and 3/4 TB breeding, there is every reason to believe that we have just seen the arrival of a rather exciting future eventer!

This colt is an absolute stand out example of everything a future eventer presents as a foal. He just demonstrates such natural speed, balance, cat like agility, grace and audacious confidence in his attitude to everything he encounters.

In terms of pedigree, I don't think you could fault the strong bloodlines, built on the proven foundations of speed, stamina and and top level jumping ability.

His sire Geordieland is a powerfully built thoroughbred, lauded for his speed, stamina and resolution on the track. He is consistently rated over 120 in racehorses and proven at Group 1 level and a consistent winner. Standing at 16.3hh, he is by the leading sire of NH sires, Saddlers Wells; half brother to Hernando another leading NH sire. His dam Aerdee is both a winner in her own right and the dam of five winners. His Grandsire Valse Hesitation won LR Prix Charles Laffitte.

On his dams side, Who's Joker is sired by the 17.1hh International GP showjumping stallion Osilvis. He is a Futurity nominated stallion standing in the US whose offspring have consistently risen up the ranks of Grand Prix showjumping and USHJA in Hunter Derby. He is a stallion known for his great mind, exceptional balance and enormous scope; something that most importantly he has proven to pass on to his offspring.

Osilvis is by the prolific sire of Showjumping progeny, Silvio II who was approved for Oldenburg, KWPN and SI.

On his dams dam side, she is by the International showjumping stallion and legendary sire of showjumpers and sires of showjumpers, the Irish Draft stallion King of Diamonds. She is out of a First Consul TB mare.
