Dejan Krunic Sporthorses is excited to welcome Highlander DKS to the family! He was born April 4, 2017 under the care of the amazing Leslie Carter of Highland Farm in Little Rock, AR. Thank you so much Leslie! Highlander DKS is Baloubet de Rouet out of Top Girl (Diamant de Semilly-Darco-Jalisco B), which should produce a very powerful colt. This foal boasts a lineage that is solidly among the most sought-after pedigrees in showjumping. Top Girl Kervec is from a famous Selle Français breeding family. She has no fewer than five brothers who are approved stallions, with three of them being full brothers. Top Girl's full sister, Queen Girl Kervec, competed in the Nations Cup for France (including at Hickstead) and has produced several top offspring including Patrice Delaveau's up-and-coming Trafalgar Kervec and Vip du Forezan, the 2016 winner among 7-year-olds in the finals at Fontainebleau, France.
We can't wait to go visit this colt and see him in person. This colt is one of two such breedings we expect this year. This colt was produced thanks to embryo transfer, completed by Weatherford Equine in Weatherford, TX. Thanks to their expert work, we should be expecting a second Baloubet de Rouet foal out of Top Girl in less than one week!
