DKS is excited to announce the birth of our second Baloubet de Rouet out of Top Girl this year, Hollywood Girl DKS. This filly was born early in the morning on Friday, April 14, 2017 at Highland Farm in Little Rock, AR. Major thanks to Leslie Carter, who took excellent care of the mare and foal and who woke us up extra early with the good news! Hollywood Girl 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.
This was the second of two foals of this same pedigree that we expected this year, thanks to the folks at Weatherford Equine. Both were produced using embryo transfer, with the embryos carried by two of our other mares, Lyric and Belle Star DKS.
