Stallion profile

Graded in 2011 with the IDHS Elvis is a fully approved Class1 RID stallion . He sailed through the inspection and scored highly in all aspects of his conformation and movement. One of the inspectors commented ` he is a superb example of the breed, being very strong in areas where many of todays draughts are weak - he will be very good for the breed`
Elvis is lovely example of the Irish Draught breed, this good looking young stallion has it all, excellant conformation, good bone and wonderful movement - being straight, athletic and light on his feet. His temperament is second to none, with a kind, friendly disposition he is a joy to handle.
He descends from some of Irelands finest bloodlines with a particulary strong mare line. His dam Carrickrock Midnight Dancer was a champion show mare, his grand dam Millhollow Starlet was the Leading RID Show Mare of 2009 at the IDHBS awards and also took the prestigious RID mare championship at the Royal Dublin Show, his great grand dam is the Hornby Premium Mare, Roma Blue Wind, RID. A Supreme Champion in two countries, Blue Wind was Supreme Champion RID Mare at the Royal Dublin Show in Ireland in 1995 and in 1998, just to duplicate her wins in Great Britain.
His sire Pride of Meath has sired many showjumpers, eventers, dressage and show horses and is by the legendary Pride of Shaunlara. Other performance bloodlines include Crosstown Dancer, a grade A show jumper by Flagmount Diamond (King of Diamonds)
Elvis is carrying on the family tradition and has had a very successful inhand show career to date, he is a county show champion and will be shown under saddle later in the year. We have a lot of plans for Elvis, he showed a great aptitude for jumping whilst being prepared for his gradings and was loose schooling 1m 20 with ease. This combined with his excellent movement and trainability means he will be aimed at an eventing/ showing career.

Progeny Information

Bannvalley Pride of Midnight (Elvis) -

2013 has been a wonderful year for gracelands stud. Elvis`s first crop of pure bred foals were born and we could not have been more pleased with them. they are very correct, straight moving foals with wonderful kind, calm temperaments. they are following on the family success in the showring, winning at county level the most notable being a win at the great yorkshire show. to end the season we took 1st and 2nd at the national breed show with gracelandse king fhaili and gracelandse barney rubble. the icing on the cake was winning the foal championship with fhaili a big achievement with elvis`s very first pure bred foal.
