Bacchus d'Avalon (Baatesh x Persis/Prince Optimus) 2014 Chestnut Colt Will be presented and registered RPSI
This lovely colt is a combination of some very interesting and athletic individuals. Her sire is one of only a handful of Thoroughbred stallions that have had both a successful racing career AND have gone on to successfully complete a 70 Day Stallion Performance test. Baatesh is a son of Pulpit, a highly regarded Thoroughbred stallion that has produced some of the top stakes winners in the world. Bacchus' dam, Persis, is by the Hanoverian stallion, Prince Optimus. Prince Optimus had a successful performance career in Dressage, Jumping and eventing. His pedigree contains some of the classic bloodlines that are becoming more and more difficult to find in Hanoverian breeding. Persis is a modern, sporty mare with a superb temperament, three good gaits and a lovely, stylish, tight kneed jump. Bacchus already exhibits a ground covering, "rocking horse" type canter and jumps anything and everything in his way. He opts to go over rather than around any obstacle and is a bold, inquisitive colt. Bacchus will be presented RPSI. SOLD! Congratulations to Laura Szeremi of Texas! Bacchus will be enjoying life as an Eventer when he grows up!
