    Glad you liked it as much as I did. Silva Martin is a Grand Prix dressage rider from Germany, now riding for the USA. She is married to Australian native, Boyd Martin, upper level event rider, also now riding for the USA. They are a lovely talented young couple. Unfortunately, they recently had a barn fire that killed 6 of Boyd's show horses. I believe 5 horses were saved.

    Which Sea Lord is he? The Sea Salute x Graceful Glory? People who breed TB sport horses will want to know.

    Very cool. Looks like he never raced though, from what Equineline says. Regardless, a very very nice horse.

    Default How cool!

    I was all choked up watching this. I was anxious to check the breeding because I wondered if he was a son of Sea Salute. And he is.

    Roger Toffolon has a somewhat small breeding operation, but we landed one of his Sea Salute foals, a filly named We'll Sea Ya, who was a bargain basement yearling ($1000) who broke her maiden for special weight at Finger Lakes her first time out and went on to win two Stakes races. She was a really nice horse.

    Thanks for the vid!

    I was going to post this until I saw that he didn't actually run. His owner calls him an OTTB, so maybe he was in training and just didn't make it. Interesting though that he is somewhat related to a fellow Cother's stallion Sea Accounts. Cy ran, evented, and is now doing (I believe) 4th level dressage. VERY unusual for either of these horses to compete successfully at the level they do in dressage
