Akira Derringer is a very exciting colt. I have always been a fan of the late Arboria Noble Victor and when an opportunity arose to purchase a breeding to Noble Victor’s only standing son, SpiceOLife Present Tense, I jumped on it! I didn’t have a mare to use the breeding on so I went on the lookout for a mare to lease that would best suit that stallion. I was very lucky that Teri Rumens of Fire Run Farm allowed me to lease her world champion, Fire Run Natalia. I believed the cross would be a good one and Teri agreed with me! Natalia is a stunningly beautiful, great sized mare. She is snorty and airy with a balanced way of going along with a gorgeous long curvy neck and a chiseled typey head. Present Tense added the world champion park harness title to his already long list of world championships while Natalia was pregnant and I anxiously waited for spring for my foal to arrive.
I was absolutely thrilled with the resulting foal. He is good sized, well proportioned, pretty and curvy. He has a tremendous amount of presence and an arrogant way of going. Dare was everything I could hope for except one thing: he was a colt. I had hoped to get a filly to show and breed down the line. With Present Tense’s passing I decided to offer my colt for sale and look for a daughter to keep. I found Emma Downtown and hope that she will be a fun show horse and broodmare in the future. Dare was purchased by Red River Valley Enterprises and is currently in training with Copper Leaf Stables. I have high hopes for this colt and believe he will carry on the legacy of his sire. The future is bright for this fabulous colt!
Congratulations to Copper Leaf Stables, Dare was Grand Champion Stallion and Yearling Sweepstakes Champion in his debut at the Morgan Masterpiece show!
*Newsflash* Akira Derringer won his Yearling Colts in hand class at the 2016 Grand National & World Championship show! He was Reserve World Champion Junior Stallion and also World Champion Futurity Yearling Stallion!
