Looking through an older Stallion issue of the Chronicles, in search for a possible warmblood to breed my tb mare to next year. I stop and drool over one stallion in particular and decide that this one is THE one. I read more about him, and guess what. He is a full blooded thoroughbred. I will discontinue my search for a warmblood at this time.
Ohhhh in love! I actually remember his conformation shot from an older magazine my trainer had! Maybe it was that issue of the Chronicle =) So glad you mentioned him because I'm definitely saving him in my "stallion" bookmarks!
Thanks sporthorsefilly, I was looking for something that had evented. And there isn't much here in Michigan because we are lacking in tracks. I do have my own tb stallion to breed her to, but I would like to add some other bloodlines.
A little update here - I have a 5yo son of Orujo De La Galerna and cannot say enough good things about him. He is 100% TB (dam evented as well), has a wonderful brain, moves beautifully, lots of scope, super personality and is put together very well. I've only had him about 6 weeks and am very impressed - he looks just like dad!

Rest In Peace my quirky brave boy, I will love you forever.
How funny, I had asked about this horse a couple of weeks ago…..and was given a dvd yesterday at Windchase……my understanding is he is in MX with Pedro, plenty of frozen in the tank, and was a true ladies ride when he was in residence.
His daughter (?) Galerna REALLY caught my eye. I LIKE him a lot too but SHE'S my type. I'm glad you provided a link, I've been keeping an eye out for those nice TB stallions.. Fred is on that list too!!
