I fell in love with Galaxy when I saw him license in Holland and I am so pleased I paired him with Bugatti! The result is Larkshill Karisma, an absolutely breath taking black filly who is so charismatic! She is a real beauty with the most exquisite head, superb conformation, powerful elevated paces and an excellent hind leg.
Karisma has exceptional breeding ALL the mares in her immediate pedigree are “Elite” many of whom also have the Preferent and Prestatie predicate too – how rare is that. This filly is top class and we hope she will follow in their footsteps and become Elite in the future!

Sire: Grand Galaxy Win T
Galaxy is an ultra-modern, lustrous black stallion by Apache, the KWPN Grand Prix stallion. In fact, Galaxy went from the KWPN licensing in Holland to Denmark and in exactly one month later went on to be proclaimed the Danish 3yr old licensing dressage Champion!   He was the crowd favourite, and obviously favourite of the judges too - he scored 9's for his head and neck, shoulder, back and loin, and canter, and overall impression.

Galaxy boasts an exceptionally predicate-rich dam-line full of elite mares. His dam Winner T is a National Mare Inspection mare by the legendary Jazz.. She competed at the ZZ-light level and carries the elite and sport (dres) predicates as well as the predicate Preferent on the basis of her offspring. Her dam Magnaat is an elite preferent prestatie sport (dres) mare by Zeoliet and a Z2-level competitor. She also produced a Z2 dressage horse by Goodtimes, two ZZ-light horses by Jazz, and a Prix St. George by Jazz. The dam-line continues with the keur preferent prestatie sport (dres) mare Fanaat, a daughter of the Grand Prix stallion Aktion out of the keur preferent prestatie mare Nataly by Irco Polo. Winner T (by the legendary Jazz) has already produced a full-brother to Galaxy, the Prix St George stallion Volvo.  

Dam: Bugatti ST. Elite, Prok
Dam Bugatti St is an exceptionally well bred and highly graded mare. She was awarded Keur status at her grading, scoring highly on all three gaits. Following a very successful performance test and completion of the strict KWPN X Rays she has now been granted ELITE status! Her breeding is impeccable, with line breeding to the legendary Donnerhall and a blue chip dam line. Every mare on her damline is graded ELITE and has the Sport dressage predicate too. This exceptional quality of the dam line is truly outstanding. She is also beautiful, kind and gentle with the most amazing hind leg I have ever seen.

Her sire Discovery is a stunning black stallion with three powerful gaits. He completed a very successful performance test scoring 9 for type, 8 for trot and 8 for canter. Discovery has a strong hind leg, a beautiful use of the front leg and is very easy to ride with great rideability. His father Dolany is a son of the legendary stallion Donnerhall, who is also the father of Don Schufro and Don Primero. Dolany came 3rd at the German Bundeschampionat.

Bugatti's dam Vienna was successful in dressage competing to such a high level she was awarded the prestigious Sport predicate by the KWPN. She is also an Elite mare. Her mother and her mother's mother are also all Elite mares and have the Sport dressage predicate. Vienna's sire is the famous Blue Hors Don Schufro by Donnerhall. Don Schufro is an Elite stallion, Danish Champion and Olympic bronze team winner in Hong Kong! Don Schufro continuously produces top results. In 2010 his progeny made the headlines time after time. His daughter UNO Donna Unique became 6-year-old World Champion in Verden and Danish Champion in Odense, a son of Don Schufro became licensing champion in Oldenburg and the 7-year-old dressage champion in Falsterbo 2010 was Dejavu ridden by Patrik Kittel.

Bugatti's maternal grand sire the Preferent stallion Flemmingh, was one the most famous dressage stallions in the KWPN. The Preferent predicate is the highest award the KWPN can give which demonstrates just how outstanding Flemmingh was. He placed third at his performance test in 1990, scoring three 9s, including a 9 for jumping. Flemmingh is the sire of Anky van Grunsven’s now retired Grand Prix horse Krack C, as well as Cathy Morelli’s BeSe, and Imke Schellekens-Bartels’ Melvin, among many other notable dressage horses and numerous ster and keur mares.
