Future Classic Gravitas’s dam Future Coeur de Reine was one of the highest scoring Event foals in the history of the BEF Futurity (92.1%). She is by the Selle Fraincais stallion Desir du Chateau who is 68% thoroughbred & Anglo-arab & is by the Olympic show jumper and top ranked sire of showjumpers, Quidam de Revel, out of a motherline that has produced over 30 International showjumpers in the first 4 generations. Desir sired the 2011 Young Horse Showjumping World Champion, Dax van’t d’Abdihoeve, and London Olympic Games Eventer, Oregon De La Vigne ridden by Dennis Mesples for France. Coeur de Reine is out of Cornish Gem who was by the sire of Olympic & CCI**** horses, Rock King, and Cornish Gem out of the Olympic shortlisted & multiple CCI**** mare Cornish Faer, by Ben Faerie xx.

Classic Gravitas’s sire, Future Gravitas has quite exceptional genetics. His sire is Grafenstolz evented to 3* level with Olympic Champion Michael Jung, and was both the 6YO Bundeschampion in Eventing, and the 6YO Young Event Horse World Champion at Le Lion d’Angers. He is the only horse in history to qualify for all 3 of the German Federal Championships (Bundeschampionats) in Eventing, Dressage and Showjumping. Future Gravitas’s dam is the Elite mare Juswith Genoa, making Future Gravitas a half-brother to the Olympic Silver medallist, WEG Gold medallist and multiple 4* Winner Winsome Adante.  As a 5 yr old Future Gravitas won his first British Eventing 5 yr old Qualifier by more than 5 marks and has since gone on to win at BE100 level. He has also been exceptionally successful at dressage being unbeaten to date with scores up to 77%.  His first main crop of foals were presented to the BEF Futurity in 2015 with their excellent scores resulting in Future Gravitas being the No.1 Ranked Sire of Eventers in the Futurity Series in 2015. His second main crop were inspected in 2016 and again their exceptionally good scores resulted him being ranked no.2 only just missing out on doing the double with his first 2 crops inspected.  He is now competing at BE Novice level and BD Medium level.
