Bridon Belfrey, RID X Roma Blue Hawk, RID (Hornby Premium)
2009 Purebred Approved Irish Draught Stallion
Cerulean NightLife, RID is an Approved Registered Irish Draught Stallion. Irish inspectors at his stallion approval strongly emphasized their desire to make him available for international stud. His bloodlines are nearly a total outcross with only one cross back in the 4th generation to King of Diamonds. He also carries the very distinguished jumping lines of Laughton and rare lines of Atlantic Boy and Windgap Hero. Cerulean will be a color producer, able to produce blacks, bays, chestnuts as well as greys. He carries the rare black gene on both sides of his pedigree.
Cerulean NightLife, RID is the best of both of his parents. His well-balanced conformation, exceptional topline, sloping shoulder and powerful haunches are only surpassed by his sweet, pleasing temperament. His lofty trot, impressive extension and elevated canter would likely make him a producer of open dressage competitors. His athleticism, stride and speed also make him desirable as a producer of powerful 3-day eventers and jumpers. Cerulean’s foals promise to have the talent and ability for the professional, yet the willing, kind nature perfect for the amateur.
Cerulean is out of internationally acclaimed Hornby Premium Mare, Roma Blue Hawk, RID, by the magnificent Champion black stallion, Bridon Belfrey, RID. Multi National Champion in England, Roma Blue Hawk, RID is sired by Grade A International Show Jumper, Rakish Paddy, RID who was also multi National Champion on the line. Blue’s Dam, Roma Blue Wind, RID, is known as one of the greatest Irish Draught Mares in history and multi National Champion in two countries. Blue’s Dam line is extremely unique for the fact that the last 3 generations were all Hornby Premiums. Blue produced the popular Approved RID Stallion son, Harkaway LionHawk, RID who won multiple championships and was Reserve Supreme Champion at the 2004 IDHSNA National Show. Inspectors were so impressed with Cerulean’s ¾ brother, they compared him to the great Blue Peter, RID.
Cerulean’s sire, Bridon Belfrey, RID, won Best North American Bred Champion and Champion Purebred Weanling at the 2001 IDHSNA National Show. He went on to help win the Best Get of Sire representing his multi Champion and multi Champion producing sire, Snowford Bellman, RID. With many approved sons to date, Bellman has consistently stamped his offspring with incredible movement and jumping ability. Belfrey impressed the judges at his 2004 inspections with his powerful, scopey jump as they kept raising the bar. Belfrey is highly regarded internationally by judges, top Irish Draught breeders and spectators alike for his great beauty, presence, athleticism, movement and kind, gentle nature.
