Taproot Prime is sired by Avalon Equine's ES Toronto. His dam, Ahtractive Starfire is a very important member of our broodmare band. We wanted to use a sire that added jumping ability, presence, and chrome. Toronto was the perfect mating.
Toronto comes from the internationally renowned Furioso line through Now or Never M, known for producing both Grand Prix Show jumping and Dressage champions. His dam lines both Belisar and Solaris adding plenty of blood.
Ahtractiv Starfire is a 1/4 Irish Draught Sport mare by a lesser known black Polish Arabian that showed in the hunter divisions. Her dam was sired by Royal Dublin Show's champion foal, Garryowen of Suma out of an unknown Thoroughbred. To learn more about Garryowen's story click here.
Taproot Prime came out of his dam with the most amazing presence. Sometimes as a breeder, you just know one is too good to make a gelding.
