A look back at 11 years with Princesse Pascale.
Imported from Austria as a weanling, Dam of Evee, Ben, Reality and Rookie and Grand Dam to Revelation.
PP spent her young stock days in the ring before being backed and ridden away. Standing at 16hh she’s the tallest and most laid-back mare we have, she’s proved to be an exceptional broodmare.
With 30/30 Appaloosas in her pedigree, her bloodlines are traced back to 8 horses listed on the ApHC Hall Of Fame (The Appaloosa Horse Club Hall of Fame was established in 1986 to recognize the unique contributions and positive impact individual horses have made on the ApHC).
DOUBLE SIX DOMINO, JOKER B and RED EAGLE are found on both sides of her pedigree, whilst her Sire line boasts PATCHY and SUNDANCE and her Dams line enriched with BRIGHT EYES BROTHER, MIGHTY BRIGHT and PRINCE PLAUDIT.
Influential Quarter Horse stallions such as OLD FRED 1894 (PHBA Hall of Fame), JOE HANCOCK 1923 (AQHA Hall of Fame), POCO BUENO 1944 (AQHA Hall of Fame) and KING 1932 (AQHA Hall of Fame ) are found. We also see the Thoroughbreds, ROCK SAND 1900, “a leading British two-year-old of his generation he became the tenth winner of the Triple Crown in 1903, winning the 2,000 Guineas Stakes, The Derby and the St. Leger Stakes” and ST FRUSQUIN 1893 “the best British two-year-old of 1895, wins included the Middle Park Plate and the Dewhurst Plate., 2000 Guineas, the Princess of Wales’s Stakes and the Eclipse Stakes”.
PP is the shadow of Catori and a Foundation broodmare in our herd, her breeding is a huge asset to the Foundation Blood Lines here at Redheart Appaloosas.
