DSD Esperance
After a stellar debut as the Michigan Morgan Breeders Futurity Grand Champion, this elegant stallion suffered a nearly life-ending injury that left him crippled for life and redirected his future to the breeding shed. Fortunately, he has proven to be exceptional in this new role.

A 3/4 brother to such important breeding and show horses as Stonecroft Byzantine and Stonecroft Neoclassic, we have been carefully selecting his first crosses and the results have been impressive. In 2009, a son and a daughter both showed in the Michigan Morgan Breeders Futurity and the results were impressive. DSD Ava won every class she entered, including Grand Champion Futurity Weanling and the RaDon Weanling Spectacular Sweepstakes. As a yearling, she was also the MMHBF's Grand Champion Yearling over the boys and finished her year in the Top Five Grand National Yearling Fillies at Oklahoma.

DSD Zingerman won the Michigan Futurity's Weanling Colt class and tied an impressive fourth in a huge class of weanlings in the RaDon Weanling Spectacular Sweepstakes behind his stablemate. As a yearling, he was Top Ten at the Grand National in both his Yearling Colt class as well as the World Futurity. He is now finding his niche in the western pleasure division and has been winning tricolors from coast to coast.

DSD Gratzi had a spectacular first year in the ring with Lauren Osborne. After making a clean sweep of the Amateur division at the 2016 Buckeye Challenge, she went on to win the Grand National Hunter Pleasure Ladies Amateur Mares Championship in Oklahoma City.

His son, CenturyOakHollywoodNights, recently moved into the Junior Exhibitor Hunter Pleasure division in 2014 and finished his year with three Top Ten placings at the Grand National in both Four Year Old and also Junior Exhibitor Hunter Pleasure.
