Golden Strike – affectionately known as Clarke – has been standing at stud since 2013, first at A D Pony Stud in the North Island, before being sold to Maungatua Equestrian. He will be aimed for both the dressage and jumping circuits in the South Island, as well as performing stallion duties. Golden Strike’s pedigree is full of exceptional bloodlines, with Golden Atreju (sire) siring many licensed sons and premium mares and foals. His dam Leni is by Lucky Strike, who was also a successful showjumper in Germany. Golden Strike is already able to perform most dressage movements, despite his lack of competition mileage. His lengthened trot and passage are highlights, and his naturally balanced and uphill canter is beautifully adjustable. We are sure he will pirouette easily, as well as perform incredible flying changes. Since moving South, Clarke’s adaptability, his unflappable nature and can-do attitude have been outstanding – something which translates in how easy and talented his foals are.
