MS Filigree

Thoroughbred Bloodlines

16.2 hh Bay Mare
ES Freestyle x MS Kennedy
Breeder: Silverhorne Sporthorse, USA

This classically typey and modern mare is the result of crossing top Thoroughbred motherlines (Kennedy xx) with a strong German warmblood line (Frappant/Werther). Filligree was bred exclusively to extend the life of the Kennedy Road xx motherline in the breeding program, a decision that was strongly supported by former German Hanoverian breeding director Dr. Joachim Wilkens upon examining three generations of the damline at the 2005 Silverhorne AHS inspection.

This mare, while performance tested in order to establish her value as a breeder, will remain in the breeding program, and maintain this top dam line blood.

Dr. Joachim Wilkens, director of the Hannnoverer Verband recommended that by international breeding standards, keeping this mare and her mother in the breeding program was advisable for the longevity of Silverhorne’s breeding program.

Filligree’s position in the program was secured when she was named Champion at her mare inspection, garnering 8’s on her canter and rideability, 8’s on jumping technique and 9’s on jumping ability for a final jumping score of 8.5 at her 2005 AHS Mare Performance Test with a final score of 7.94 Filligree is beautifully conformed (8’s on head and saddle position) and is very refined and elegant, causing her to be an exceptional cross with Sir Caletto, complimenting the significant degree of Thoroughbred blood he carries through Pik As xx blood.

We are fairly convinced that the dam line strength from Kennedy xx is evident through this daughter, by the success of her crosses with Sir Caletto. She seems to possess the same ability to pass it on as her 2005 Sir Caletto daughter, Super Model S, was named Champion Filly at the Silverhorne summer inspection. An exquisite, very glamorous and leggy filly, the dark bay foal impressed when she trotted by her mother’s side for AHS inspectors.
