Below are a few photos that I took of Ace at Mid-Ohio dressage show with his trainer, Brooke Renaud. This was his first outing in the dressage world. Nicely received by judges (two seconds and a third) and garnered a lot of attention on the rail. I am very proud of him as a young stallion not long under saddle. He proved at this show he can compete with the big dogs. (And some of them are BIG!) :)

"Ace" is an outstanding Sport Horse, already a Champion at 2 years old; now 5, he is showing with great promise in Open Dressage. His wonderful disposition makes him an easy breeder and he goes from breeding shed to the arena without missing a beat.

We acquired ‘Ace’ at 6 months old, when he already displayed the charismatic presence that sets apart the best of the Morgan breed. As he has matured, he has consistently displayed the soul of a champion within the quintessential gentleman. Ace is a vessel of Old Vermont blood and Morgan type. His illustrious pedigree includes the famous Moro Hills Adonis and the great sport mare, Lippitt Ethan Georgia. This royal mare line brings forward in Ace the blood of Woodbury and Sherman. Ace is truly extraordinary stallion who provides breeders a rare opportunity to infuse the blood of a legendary mare line in their programs. Ace is 23.4071% Justin Morgan blood (per Telford). When Ace was 2, his foundation trainer, Katrina Benington-Crie, predicted, "Ace has incredible potential. He is absolutely an outstanding Sport Horse." Ace demonstrated that potential in capturing the Championship in the hotly contested 2004 Maine Morgan Sport Horse Breeders Cup (and other blue ribbons in the Show Ring in hand that year). Now 5, Ace is doing extremely well in dressage training with Brooke Renaud, Blue Brook Farm, Oberlin, Ohio. Brooke is enthusiastic about Ace’s display of work ethic, intelligence, energy, and balance. He will be competing in Open Dressage this year and standing at stud at Blue Brook Farm.

Stud Fee: $900 (includes a $100 booking fee); our Live Foal Guarantee covers the first 30 days of the foal's life; Ace is certified for fresh cooled semen shipment (inquire for costs);mare care available for live cover option at $8.00/day.
