Franklyn Sugar (Furst Heinrich x Accord) is a modern,elegant and versatile young stallion, with all the attributes needed in the competitive sport horse world. With exceptional conformation, superb front and beautiful head; and of course his lovely black colour, he turns heads wherever he goes. He is graded BWBS and received a first premium BEF plus the highest dressage score!
“Franklyn Sugar”, by the World Champion Young Dressage Horse,”Furst Heinrich”; who although sadly now deceased, is a prolific sire of sports horses in all disciplines worldwide. Awarded a Premium Stallion at his licensing, he then went on to become Champion of his performance test in Münster-Handorf. As a five-year-old in 2003, he was crowned World Dressage Champion. In his short breeding career, he has produced well over 40 licensed stallions, including many Premium Stallions, Champions and Reserve Champions. The impressive list of state Premium Mares sired by Fürst Heinrich is further evidence of the quality being produced, most notable of 2011 was that of the fabulous 5yr old world dressage champion Woodlander Farouche.
On the motherline Franklyn Sugar has superb jumping blood from an Acord II (St PR Mare, Aileen, she is a prolific producer of successful sports horses eg. BD champion broodmare and champion warmblood at royal show plus many many more).
Franklyn Sugar was licensed in October 2010. The German panel of judges at the BWBS grading were particularly impressed with his loose, elastic movement, and his scopey jump; this combined with a superbly mature temperment make him a very desirable sire.
Having competed lightly but successfully in his first year under saddle (Shearwater 4yr old Championship Finalist 2010, Badminton Young Dressage Horse 4yrs Championship Finalist 2010), he is training on well over the winter and will compete both dressage and SJ. He will also contend the BYEH series. He has that rare mixture of presence and performance and looks to be an exciting sire for the future.
Franklyn is British bred and co-owned by Ruth Mealey and Clair Gordon, who is also currently producing Franklyn Sugar.
He has all the physical, mental, hereditary and genetic attributes required to ensure a successful career as a sire and serious competitor
Franklyn Sugar has had a very successful first season competing at the Young Dressage Horse Finals at Hickstead 2011, finishing in the top ten in the country. He is qualified for the Winter Regionals at Elementary level and will contest Elementary and Medium level classes in 2012. This will run alongside continued training under Ferdi Eilberg, and jump training with Ginnie Turnbull. He has his eagerly awaited first crop of foals due early spring 2012, and looks forward to combining a busy competition season with his stud duties; as his temperament to combine both is second to none. This is a really special young stallion with consistent wins at each level he progresses to. Franklyn is a true modern sports horse stallion with the star appeal teamed with the all-important trainability factor.
