Tchaikovsky DvZ (ASB registered as Destructive Action life nr NZ 00253568) is a 16.2 hh thoroughbred stallion born 26/9/2006.
His sire line is truly bred in the purple with Stravinsky (sire of Oratorio) grand sire Nurejev who is a 3/4 brother to world famous Sadlers Wells, himself by the legendary Northern Dancer. These lines are known as producers of milers and middle distance runners.
Tchaikovsky's dam is by the US Champion sire Unbridled who won $4 million in his lifetime. You also find Dr Carter and Mr Prospector, who are known to produce show jumpers. Mr Prospector is also found on the sire side.
Most of the dam family line has produced plenty of sport horses and most are of a good size varying 16.1 - 17 hh.
Tchaikovsky has a very nice conformation, showing everything at the right proportions and angles. He has really good bone (for a thoroughbred). Super topline, lovely elegant neck, nice throat latch. He also has good paces, especially a really good walk.
Tchaikovsky will be suitable for warmblood mares and of course also part and thoroughbred mares to produce a more elegant sport horse especially eventers. He was ridden for awhile by Darren Taylor who also jumped him a bit. Still very green he will need more time to train and turn him into sport horse.
Kate Barton of Narbethong says of him: "I can vouch for this boy...he has a superb temperament! As cool as a cucumber. He's going to cross very well to the older style warmblood mares or breed some awesome event horses :)"
