TRIUNFADOR_XXIV

When we found our ideal stud, Triunfador XXIV, we knew we had "THE

TOTAL PACKAGE". We were impressed with his beauty, his Escalera brand,

size, movement, athleticism, championships, a stud described by trofeo

caballo as "THE BEST BLACK PRE TODAY", but if I had to pick his most

impressive feature, it would be his GENETICS. TRIUNFADOR (QUALIFIED),

and our mares: PODEROSA LVII, ORGULLOSA CXLVI, UTRERA XI

(QUALIFIED), and UNIVERSITARIA XIV (QUALIFIED) all share

TRIUNFADOR'S WORLD CLASS GENETICS.

It is our belief that genetics gives us history, knowledge, family legacy and

breeding tradition. A perfect example is Maria Fernanda de la Escalera's

legendary stallion, ERMITAÑO III, el primer PRE "ELITE". Not only was he

known to be a fantastic stud, he has been described as "THE FATHER OF THE

BREED" as recognition for being the first PRE to shine as a sports horse and

more specifically in dressage. This historic stud happens to be Triunfador's

uncle. His father, GANADOR VIII is Triunfador's grandfather, and his

mother, ERMITAÑA IV (one of the three best bay mares in PRE history

and SICAB 1982 Gold medalist) is Triunfador's great-grandmother.

NADADORA VIII, the 4 time SICAB CHAMPION OF SPAIN, also one of the

three best mares in PRE history, is Ermitaña's daughter and also Triunfador's

grandmother. There are only 12 horses in the LAUREATE SECTION OF THE

BOOK OF MERITS, of the 12, only 3 are bay mares, and all are in

Triunfador's pedigree:

MACANUA, SICAB CHAMPION OF SPAIN (Triunfador's great-grandmother),

Jose Luis de la Escalera called her "the flagship of this farm".

ERMITAÑA IV (Triunfador's great-grandmother) and her daughter NADADORA

VIII(Triunfador's grandmother), sired by the great LEBRIJANO III.

NADADORA VIII is the most decorated PRE in history, with 7 gold medals in

SICAB, 4 Champion of Spain awards (2 as Absolute Champion and 2 in

movement) in SICAB l991 and l994. Unfortunately, NADADORA only had 2

daughters, Zarina, who died young, like Nadadora herself, and Triunfadora

XIV, whose most successful offspring is TRIUNFADOR. TRIUNFADOR IS THE

ONLY BLACK GRANDSON OF NADADORA, THE ONLY BLACK PRE IN

HISTORY TO HAVE BEEN NAMED ABSOLUTE CHAMPION OF SPAIN IN

SICAB. THIS GIVES TRIUNFADOR 5 SICAB CHAMPIONS OF SPAIN IN HIS

FIRST 3 GENERATIONS.

Triunfador and our mares share this rich Escalera heritage and also a historic

Yeguada Militar legacy. All the Olympic PRE's: EVENTO, INVASOR II,

OLEAJE and FUEGO XII, as well as OBCECADO, Yeguada Militar's #1 stud,

share their genetic origins with each other and with TRIUNFADOR,

PODEROSA, ORGULLOSA, UTRERA and UNIVERSITARIA. They all have the

legendary AGENTE - MALUSO-LEBRERO in their world class pedigrees. It is

this great genetic treasure that our great stud and highly selected foundation

mares share with some of the greatest PRE in history.

CURIOSO JLE, THE SICAB 2010 GRAND PRIX CHAMPION OF SPAIN,

SHARES WITH TRIUNFADOR THEIR ESCALERA BRAND, GANADOR VIII

AND LEBRIJANO III LINEAGE.

IS THE ABOVE JUST ONE BIG COINCIDENCE?

I DON'T THINK SO. I CALL IT "OUR WORLD CLASS FOUNDATION STOCK".

IT'S THIS GENETIC TREASURE THAT WILL BE PASSED TO OUR FUTURE

FOALS AND OUTSIDE MARES BRED TO TRIUNFADOR. TRIUNFADOR HAS

SEVERAL GOLD MEDALIST OFFSPRING IN SPAIN, MEXICO AND

COLOMBIA, AND HOPEFULLY SOON IN THE U.S.

TRIUNFADOR IS CURRENTLY BREEDING M. FERNANDA DE LA ESCALERA

MARES VIA FROZEN SEMEN IN FUENTES DE ANDALUCIA. WE ARE VERY

PROUD THAT OUR STALLION IS BREEDING MARES AT THE MOST

PRESTIGIOUS PRE FARM IN THE WORLD. TRIUNFADOR IS PROBABLY

THE ONLY U.S. PRE STUD BREEDING IN SPAIN AND

CERTAINLY THE ONLY ONE BREEDING AT THE HISTORIC

MARIA FERNANDA DE LA ESCALERA FARM.

TRIUNFADOR TRANSMITS HIS WORLD CLASS GENETICS AS EVIDENCED

BY HIS 22 OFFSPRING COMPETING WORLDWIDE (MORE

THAN ANY OTHER PRE IN THE U.S.), AND THE 17 GOLD

MEDALS THEY HAVE BEEN AWARDED (MORE THAN ANY

OTHER PRE IN THE U.S.). MOST OF THESE OFFSPRING IN

THE SHOW RING AND THE GOLD MEDALS WERE EARNED IN

SPAIN.

THIS IS AN ARTICLE PUBLISHED IN THE MAGAZINE "PURA RAZA"

ANALIZING THE GENETICS OF ONE OF THE MOST FAMOUS PRE OF

ALL TIMES, ERMITAÑO III, WHO HAPPENS TO BE TRIUNFADOR'S UNCLE.

IT IS A LONG AND MOST INTERESTING ARTICLE IN SPANISH, SO I WILL

TRANSLATE SOME FACTS THAT PERTAIN TO TRIUNFADOR'S GENETICS.

"ERMITAÑO III IS KNOWN AS FATHER OF THE BREED FOR HAVING

TAKEN THE MOST IMPORTANT STEP IN THE PRE WORLD TOWARDS

SPORTS, SPECIFICALLY IN CLASSICAL DRESSAGE. BRED BY MARIA

FERNANDA DE LA ESCALERA (TRIUNFADOR'S BREEDER), ERMITAÑO

(TRIUNFADOR'S UNCLE), IS THE SON OF GANADOR VIII (TRIUNFADOR'S

GRANDFATHER) AND ERMITAÑA IV (TRIUNFADOR'S GREAT

GRANDMOTHER). ERMITAÑA IV, INSCRIBED INTHE BOOK OF MERITS IS

ONE OF THE MOST IMPORTANT MARES OF THE PRE BREED. SHE HAS

RELEVANT OFFSPRING LIKE ERMITAÑO III (TRIUNFADOR'S UNCLE),

ERMITAÑO IV AND NADADORA VIII (TRIUNFADOR'S GRANDMOTHER),

WHO IS THE MOST DECORATED PRE TO DATE WITH 7 GOLD MEDALS IN

SICAB, 2 TITLES AS CHAMPION OF SPAIN IN SICAB, 1991 AND 1994,

WHERE SHE WAS ALSO CHAMPION OF SPAIN IN MOVEMENT. GANADOR

VIII WAS A STANDOUT SPECIMEN THAT TRANSMITTED HIS WALK,

GALLOP AND CHARACTER. HIS MOVEMENTS COME FROM GENETIC

INHERITANCE FROM CESAR AND MALUSO (BOTH IN TRIUNFADOR'S

BLOODLINES) OF YEGUADA MILITAR, RECOGNIZED SPECIMENS AND

FOUNDERS OF THE PRE THAT HAVEGIVEN THEIR OFFSPRING

MOVEMENT AND AN INNATE PREDISPOSITION FOR CLASSICAL

DRESSAGE. IN 1987 AND 1988, ERMITAÑO III WAS THE FIRST PRE

TO WIN THE DRESSAGE CHAMPIONSHIP OF THE TIME, COMPETING

AGAINST OTHER EUROPEAN BREEDS, WHICH WAS THE EQUIVALENT

OF TODAY'S COPA ANCCE. IT WAS MANUEL NOVALES VASCO,

MARIA FERNANDA DE LA ESCALERA'S HUSBAND, TOGETHER

WITH LUIS LUCIO (RIDER FOR THE SPANISH DRESSAGE OLYMPIC TEAM)

THAT PUT THEIR TRUST IN ERMITAÑO AND IN THE PRE BREED."

YOU CAN FIND THE COMPLETE ARTICLE IN "PURA RAZA" IF YOU

GOOGLE: DOSSIER SEMENTALES DE ELITE.

SINCE THE ARTICLE MENTIONS THE FAMOUS LUIS LUCIO, WE ARE VERY

FLATTERED BY AN E-MAIL WE RECEIVED FROM HIM ON MAY 31, 2011.

"ESTEEMED MARIA,

CONGRATULATIONS IN YOUR PURCHASE OF TRIUNFADOR XXIV, HE IS

AN EXCELLENT SPECIMEN THAT COMES FROM A FAMILY OF GREAT

CHAMPIONS, I EXPECT HE WILL GIVE YOU MANY SATISFACTIONS IN HIS

OFFSPRING AND SUCCESS IN THE WORLD OF COMPETITIVE CLASSICAL

DRESSAGE.

CORDIALLY,

LUIS LUCIO

LUIS LUCIO WAS A RIDER FOR THE SPANISH DRESSAGE OLYMPIC TEAM

IN ATLANTA 1996 AND SIDNEY 2000. THE FAMOUS OLYMPIC RIDER

LOVED ERMITAÑO III AND SEEMS TO ALSO VALUE TRIUNFADOR.
