Desir du Chateau x Future Illusion x Ben Faerie xx


Future Cornish Desire looks to be a fabulous combination of her genes showing attributes from both sides of her family… She has long legs like her sire Desir du Chateau, but the stunning head and outstanding conformation of her grand-sire Future Illusion.

This youngster is a very exciting breeding and competition prospect as she combines exception genes -

Future Cornish Desire’s dam is Future Cornish Illusion who is Elite graded and whose sire is Future Illusion (who was the No.1 Ranked Sire of Eventing Youngstock at the BEF Evaluations in 2009 and who in turn is by the Elite stallion Fleetwater Opposition). Future Cornish Illusion’s dam is the 4* Event mare Cornish Faer (short-listed for the Atlanta Olympics), by Ben Faerie xx.

Future Cornish Desire’s sire is the Selle Francais stallion Desir du Chateau who is 68% thoroughbred & Anglo-arab & is by one of the top showjump sires in the world, Quidam de Revel, out of a motherline that has produced over 30 International showjumpers in the first 4 generations. Desir du Chateau has already produced the 2010 7 Yr Old World Showjumping Champion Dax van Dabdijhoeve, and International eventers Oregon de la Vigne (Double clear at Badminton 2013 & competitor at London Olympics) as well as Mistral de Blondel and Nabouco de Essay amongst others.
