Future Illusion sires ALL of the top 3 Competition Horse Foals at Bucks County Show!
We had a fantastic day at Bucks County Show today having unprecedented success in the Competition Horse classes. We took two of our own mares Allercombe Loveday and Persephone Heights with their foals by Future Illusion, Future Jurisdiction (owned by Mrs Elizabeth Chiaviella Bradford of the USA), and Future Perfect Illusion. We were also delighted to meet up with the new owners of Broadstone d’Elegance and her foal by Future Illusion, Future Divine Illusion at the show as they were also entered in these classes.
The mares really set the a tough standard for their foals to follow as in a strong class of over 9 mares, Allercombe Loveday was awarded 1st place, and Persephone Heights 2nd. Their foals had a lot to live up to and we could never have possibly hoped for the result we got – a Future Illusion sired one, two, three!! Future Jurisdiction was called in 1st, with Future Perfect Illusion 2nd and Future Divine Illusion 3rd. We’re not sure if this clean sweep of the top 3 positions has ever been achieved before by a stallion and are making enquiries to see if this is a unique accolade.
This achievement was felt worthy enough by Horse & Hound Magazine for them to run a comments about it in their ‘Horses In The News’ feature (click on thumbnail to view). Interestingly, the horse listed above Future Illusion is Opposition Buzz – a 4* eventer also by the same sire as him, Fleetwater Opposition!
