Brilliant 2016 Oldenburg filly by Don De Marco out of Royal Ransom (Royal Prince X Ijsselmeer). Bright red chestnut with a narrow blaze and three socks! Super balanced and athletic filly with lots of femininity, a harmonious topline, and three lovely gaits! Delicata is sired by the Donnerwetter son, Don De Marco, a half brother to the legendary Donnerhall! Her dam, Royal Ransom, is by Royal Prince (Rohdiamant – Prince Thatch xx – Wenzel I), one of Hilltop Farm’s flagship stallions. Royal Ransom’s damsire, Ijsselmeer, and grand sire were both Grand Prix dressage horses. Even though his career was in dressage, Ijsselmeer scored high in jumping at his approval and Grundstein was on the all round top ten list in Germany for producing both dressage horses and jumpers at the international level. With these bloodlines, Delicata is assured plenty of dressage ability, but should also have some super talent over fences! To top it off, Delicata is the sweetest filly! She is super friendly and in your pocket. She never says no and is always eager to please. With her good looks, outstanding athleticism, and genetics, Delicata will surely go far in any sport horse discipline. And with her especially wonderful temperament, she is sure to delight any amateur or junior rider! Delicata will be registered with the ISR/OL. Currently 15.1h at 3 1/2, we expect Delicata to mature 15.2-15.3h. Asking $8,500 for this special filly. Another exceptional sport horse offered by Gateway Farm!
