ELLANBRAE JAMES BOND
Ellanbrae James Bond (OO Seven x Glock’s Johnson x Metall x Concorde) (ET)
DOB: 27 September 2014
Height: Expected 17hh
“Jamie” is a sensational moving, flashy black embryo transfer gelding with 4 white socks and blaze. He is an incredibly people friendly, quality foal who would suit a rider looking for a future FEI horse. He carries the blood of many of the greats of modern Grand Prix dressage in OO Seven, Johnson, Jazz, and Ferro, with a splash of jumping blood in Concorde, one of the greatest sires of show jumpers of the last 25 years.
His sire, OO Seven (imp) was not only competitive in the Netherlands to Grand Prix, but has become an influential sire in the KWPN stud book and recently received the “pref keur” predicate. Since his arrival in Australia, David Shoobridge had much success with him at Grand Prix level. OO Seven is by Rubinstein, one of the all time greats of dressage breeding. His dam, Gelbria, was a full sister to outstanding Grand Prix mare, Olympic Barbria.
Jamie’s maternal grandsire, Glock’s Johnson, is a stunning and very fancy moving stallion who, after much success as a young horse has transitioned to Grand Prix with Hans Peter Minderhoud, finishing in the top 15 at the 2014 World Equestrian Games in Normandy. He was also a member of the Dutch gold medal winning team at the 2015 European championships, and was individual bronze medallist, and was part of the Dutch team at Rio.
His maternal great-grand sire, Metall, has produced many good horses, including Carl Hester’s 2012 London Olympic team gold medal winning stallion, Uthopia.
