Rare Amaretto D'Arco colt available for purchase as part of our Take It Home At 3 Program (details below). Bred for the top of the sport, this powerful and super fancy colt is by international Grand Prix jumper Amaretto D'Arco and out of an imported Belgian mare competed by Eric Lamaze and Yann Candele upon import in the late 1990's.
Amaretto D'Arco was the alternate for the Irish Olympic team in 2012 and has top placings at Aachen, LaBaule, Dublin, Rome, Spruce Meadows, Wellington, St. Gallen, etc. He is now competing with American Katie Dinan.
Macallan's dam is our Belgian-bred mare, Melody Van Sint Maarten (Elton-Nimmerdor-Ladalco, Nuberta stam). She descends from the famous Stal Roelofs motherline and competed up to L5 before a farrier mistake ended her promising career at just age 6. Melody's half-brother is an approved Zangersheide stallion in Europe.
A big teddy bear with a kind, generous disposition, Macallan is a gentleman through and through. Long legged, substantial bone and harmoniously put together, Macallan is very correct with eye-catching presence. He displays tremendous power in every gait. His overall quality matches his internationally regarded pedigree. Link to video:
Macallan is dark chestnut with a big blaze, white lip, white markings under his chin, several belly spots on his side and under belly, 3 high whites, roaning and a skunk tail.
