2023 American Hanoverian Society Inspection at Quantico Sporthorses
A Successful Day for our Largest Foal Crop Yet
Six years in and we have our biggest group of current year foals from both foreign and domestic-based sires. All of our 2023 foals were registered with the American Hanoverian Society this year based off of many years of top-tier customer service. We love working with an organization that is based in the US while also still having full reciprocity with the European studbooks. A big thanks to judges Meg Williams and Cathy Tucker-Slaterbeck for traveling out to our farm to inspect what we consider a very special group of foals.
We also had super help here at home from Lindsay Clark and Jackie Testa for making sure everyone was showring ready and that the day went smoothly. So pleased to have had Anna Smolens of Purple Horse Designs on hand to document the day - a testament to all of the energy and time we devote to this growing program of ours. And who can forget the horses!

Feinrich x Han. Pr. Scantolina by Scolari
Top Foal of the Day & Gold Medal
Fidelis QC Named Top Foal of the Day
Our special Fidelis QC, by Feinrich and out of Hanoverian Premium Scantolina, by Scolari, was chosen as Top Foal of the Day and also awarded a Gold Medal. At three weeks of age, she was considerably younger than the boys but held her own with high quality of conformation, a ton of presence, and super elasticity in the gaits. This is a confident, well-balanced filly with a lot to offer in the future, and another top foal from the super producing Scantolina. She is sold!
Franziskus x Laurette by Londonderry
Futurama QC Walks the Walk
A colt with a super foundation and an even better character, Futurama QC, sired by Franziskus and out of Laurette, by Londonderry, is destined for a future in the performance ring. The judges gave him good comments for his conformation, including a strong topline, and especially highlighted this colt for his very pure walk with good ground cover. In movement, he is nicely off of the ground and shows good ability to extend and collect. He is also sold!
Cum Laude x Sp. Pr./El. Rhosemary by Rosentanz
Cuervo QC Represents Sire Cum Laude
We are really enjoying watching the development of the long-lined and elegant Cuervo QC, a fitting representative for Cum Laude out of the Special Premium and Elite Stute Rhosemary, by Rosentanz. The judges remarked on his beautiful front end, nice amount of bone, and the way he used himself in movement. Uphill, good scope through the front leg, nice use of the topline. He is sold, but Rhosemary is back in foal to Cum Laude for 2024.
