Prima Dona (Prince Thatchxx – EM Finastra – Feiner Stern)
On November 9, 2012, we lost Prima and she has left a hole in our hearts. We are forever grateful to this amazing mare for her presence in our lives and for the legacy she has left through her talented and beautiful offspring.
1998 elite eligible AHS dark bay mare that is a top producer of hunters and dressage horses. Offspring include: “A” circuit hunter with her amateur owner Fonteyn HF (by Fabriano), elite mare Regal Dona HF (by Rubino Belissimo), Suzanne’s current mount and stunning dressage gelding Duprix (by DeLaurentis), 2009 top colt at AHS Inspection (GA) Pyrhus (by Pablo), and exceptional Top Foal at AHS Inspection, 2011 colt by Sinatra Song.
Prima’s dam, EM Finastra, comes from 7 generations of States Premium mares and she was the highest scoring mare (8.3) in her Mare Performance Tests across Germany for her testing year; she scored 9 for her trot and rideability and 8 for her walk and canter. She also won 4 material classes and her 1A prize in Germany. After being imported, she received 2nd place at Dressage at Devon and was a Champion Qualifier for USDF breed finals. She also produced a 2005 Oldenburg stallion prospect, Sandro Fidelis, by Sandro Hit, that is currently completing the 70 day test.
Thank you to Julie Ballard-Haralson for helping us find this amazing broodmare.
