FSH purchases the proven Cavalier Royale/Bassompierre mare “Cant Touch This”!
We are delighted to announce the purchase of the extremely well bred and proven mare “Cant Touch This” from Quainton Stud. Cant Touch This showjumped successfully before retiring to stud, winning and being placed at Foxhunter level (1.20m) multiple times.
She is by the No.1 sire of eventers in the world, Cavalier Royale who sired Clayton Fredericks Rolex CCI**** winner Ben Along Time, as well as Mary King’s Olympic Team Bronze medallist Call Again Cavalier. He is also responsible for 2 of Mary’s other top rides, Imperial Cavalier and Cashel Bay.
Her dam-sire, the thoroughbred Bassompierre is the sire of David O’Connor’s Olympic Individual Gold Medallist Custom Made, and is also the dam-sire of Pippa Funnell’s legendary CCI**** horse, Supreme Rock.
We are very excited at the breadth of opportunities bringing these new bloodlines into our breeding programme will give us. She is in foal for 2009 to Quainton Stud’s own stallion, Chadron Quainton who is 70 day tested and a paternal 3/4 brother to the Grand Prix & Nations Cup showjumping stallion Condios, who we are the exclusive UK agent for.
