VA Manolete’s Hijo Amado

2010 Black PRE Stallion standing 16.2 HH

Manoletes Hijo Amado

Amado was the 2015 Canadian National Champion Sr Stallion and Gold Medal Movement winner.  He was second in the Champion PRE Stallions, All Ages.  We were OK with that as his 4 month old son, VA San Paulo was the Champion.  San Paulo was also the Canadian National Supreme Halter Champion which is a repeat performance from 2013 when Amado’s son, VA Alejo was the Supreme Halter Champion.

Coming from a long line of National Champions, both in North America and in Spain, Amado is a National Champion in his own right.  Amado was shown in 2010 and was pronounced US National Reserve Champion Colt, 2 years and under, when he was only six months old.

On Amado’s topside, his sire is Canadian National Champion Senior Stallion, Mystique’s Manolete.  Manolete has won over 20 National titles in both performance and halter.  His grand sire is Sandokan who was US National champion Jr. Stallion in 2003, Reserve National Champion Sr. Stallion in 2006 and winner of numerous National performance titles.  His Great Grand Sires were Molinete IV and Navarre GF, both multi-national title holders.

On Amado’s bottom side, his dam is US and Canadian National Champion Estampa MA. His Grandfather is US National Champion Ocioso VIII, producer of more national champions than any US sire to date. He also has Leviton, Hosco and Genio III in his long list of champion forefathers.

Amado had his first foal crop in 2013 with phenomenal results. His 2013 son, VA Alejo, was shown at 3 months of age at the Canadian National Andalusian show with Judge Sue Burkman of Santa Barbara, California presiding. She pronounced Alejo to be the Supreme Halter Champion of the entire show.  Her words were “This colt is gorgeous, I mean absolutely gorgeous”.  In 2015, Amado’s son VA San Paulo was pronounced the Supreme Halter Champion under Hall of Fame inductee judge Mr. Richard Petty.  Not only did he pick a 4 month old colt to be the best of show but Mr Petty actually walked over to the microphone to comment to the audience on the “outstanding quality of this colt!”. In 2016 Amado’s yearling filly, VA La Reina and his weanling filly, VA La Luna Elegante were the National and Reserve National Champion Filly, 1 year and under.

VA Aragon is an amazing young boy

In both of these classes she was also the Gold Medal Movement winner. This girl is a real mover and an outstanding dressage prospect.  Ysabela gave us a beautiful filly in 2014, VA Mi Poca Manzana but unfortunately lost her colt that was by Mystique’s Padrino in 2015.  Ysabela has been left open for 2015/16 so she may continue her dressage training.
