He stood at North Star Farms Sylvan Farms) in Arlington quite a while ago. I THINK he was at a vet clinic or similiar place after that Not sure. He was by Final Pool o/o Silver Lining ( by Cordelabreyer (sorry about spelling). Full brother to a bunch of nice horses but he got hurt and never showed. E-mail Sylvan Farms.

WarmbloodColor has it right - he was actually living at Rocky Bay when we took our three broodies down there for breeding (to a different horse standing at the clinic) a couple of years ago. He is quite an eyeful! Very correct stallion, tons of quality.
You could likely call the clinic and ask - I'm sure they would know if he's still in the area.
Yes - Final Pool was used about five times over Silver Lining they liked the cross so much. Final Event was not introduced to many, if any, registries, but is a lovely hores. He had two very successful show hunters - Show Boat and Special Occasion who were very successful on the east coast. I know about him because I took my mare down to Arlington to be bred to Final Pool. Silver Lining was a big mare who just grabbed your attention with her presence.
I really liked this horse too, and was thinking of him for one of my AFR sisters a few years ago. As others have said he is 1/2 TB (by Final Pool) and 1/2 Holsteiner out of a beautiful Holsteiner mare, Silver Lining. (who I think is Corde and Silbersee - but I have been known to be wrong, sometimes).
As far as I know he is not related to Special Memories, who I believe is 1/2 Trakehner and 1/2 TB (Abdullah and Touch of Class? perhaps??
another lovely horse.

Has anyone had soundness issues with their Final Pool babies? Some of the ones I knew either started with serious soundness issues and were never even backed and a couple others had soundness issues later and started stopping.
Silver Lining was a great mare.
Interesting -- I hadn't heard the Final Pool name in a long time and he showed up in this topic and one on the H/J Forum.
He was on the thread mentioning GP showjumping TB's. Jumped at Spruce the World Cup qualifying level. Lovely hores, lovely offspring.
Remember, unsound horses can blame either the dam or the sire, or whatever. Pool himself had a trailering accident and until then was sound to a good age. He is still alive at 31 in Langley at his owner's home.
Final Pool is still alive?? I'll be danged. Everyone used to breed to him.
I think Silver Lining was by Cor de le Breyer (SP) She was very lovely herself. Nancy used to ride with Brad Laird - way back when.
You're right Final Pool was in a trailering accident - instead of taking care of it the owner just went ahead and jumped him.
