    I found an ad for TDM in the 1988 stallion issue of the Chronicle (hmmm...guess I really have been around for ages). Here' what it says:

    1973 Dk bay TB, 17 h, by Prince Easy Mon, out of Hope's Bonnet by Suncap.

    Geo. Morris comments "let me call you attention to a gifted individual who is presently exhibiting the ability to transmit his finest qualities to his offspring. TDM is beautiful, correct in his conformation, a wonderful jumper and lovely mover".

    Progency include: MISTRAL, IHF Grand Champion 3 yr old, Washington DC, 1986
    AS YOU LIKE IT, IHF Res. Grand Champion 3 yr old, Washington, DC 1988

    According to Joan (Kerron) Curtin's website, he was Champion multiple times in Florida, Trader's Point and St. Louis, etc.

    In 2004, TDM was still ranked 7th nationally (he's been dead for years) in money earned by offspring participating in the IHF.

    I personally can't comment about him, but I have friends who had offspring and loved them.

    Thanks Sylvan! I actually remember those ads for him. And I had a 3 year old in the IHF at Washington in 86 - so now I really feel old!

    SF Is there a current website or was that part of the ad from 1988? If it's current, do you have a link to it? Thanks

    I never saw him go, but my trainer when I was a kid bred to him several times & also purchased some of his offspring. My favorite was out of a Silky Sullivan mare. His offspring were always very correct, moved & jumped fabulously. I'd breed to him in a second.

    I'd breed to him in about an instant, happily taking a risk on frozen from a while ago. Wish I had a straw.

    So did Joan Curtin own/stand him at somepoint? We have a TBX mare from her that I am pretty sure she bred. Will have to find out if he is in her pedigree. This mare is NICE. Would be cool if that is true.

    Loveshorses, as I understand history, Joan owned him and stood him at Running Creek Ranch where the breeding manager was Joe Perez. What attributes make her nice?

    As I recall, Joan Curtin did own him.

    I remember him very well. I have all the Chronicle Stallion issues since the late 70's and I always liked him. Was his sire Texas Fuel or am I confused??
