Blackall Park San Tropez (V'Tropez / VP Veronica) - Black Mare 15.2hh DOB 10/2/2010 POA
To view pedigree click here http://www.allbreedpedigree.com/blackall+park+san+tropez
Those interested in breeding will note that BP San Tropez is a granddaughter of Galoubet one of the most influential showjumping stallions of all time. Many of the finalists in the 2016 Rio Olympics featured Galoubet in their pedigree, in particular Big Star, the gold medal winner, who is a grandson.
BP San Tropez is completely sound and unblemished and is offered for sale by the breeder. In 2016 she spent several months in work with Grant Hughes in Canberra where she was schooling to 1.2m. While she was with Grant she was ridden by various riders in training, including light weight young girls, for whom she went particularly well. BP San Tropez is a highly competitive horse and has rarely been unplaced in her competitions to date.
On returning to Victoria, BP San Tropez spent nine months with talented young rider Rose Stacey. At the 2017 Gippsland Showjumping Festival in Jan, she palced 3rd in the 1.10m championship being one of only three horses to jump double clear. Following on from there she had numerous other placings. At her last show with Rose at Werribee in August 2017, she jumped very consistently and jumped eight rounds for just one penalty, unluckily just touching the first fence in the 1.10m jump off.
BP San Tropez recently returned to Blackall Park, and is currrently in full work. She has been ridden at local Gippsland shows by Angela Bence and has been jumping really well. Most recently she placed 5th in the 1.15cm class at the The Elms Championships in Sale on 25th November.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Quo4jwYzx-M&feature=youtu.be
BP San Tropez has a bright personality but is not difficult. She is unusual in that she is more relaxed at a show than at home. Her ground manners are excellent. She is perfect to catch, shoe, clip and float and is a good feeder when at a show, and does not suffer seperation anxiety. She has a friendly nature and has been a favourite at Blackall Park all her life.

|Blackall Park Schumann ( Blackall Park Twist / Solbelle) - Grey gelding 15.3hh DOB 11/10/2013 POA |
To view pedigree click here Blackall Park Schumann
Blackall Park Schumann is the first foal from the TB mare Solbelle. He is an attractive type very typical of the horses now coming through by his sire Blackall Park Twist, (2), (3), all of which have style and ability. Some of the first horses to attract attention are Blackall Park Woomelang, Blackall Park Clarence, Emmaville Twist, and Sweet Twist
Schumann was broken in six months ago and is a delightful horse under saddle. He has been ridden by several different riders and all who have ridden him enjoyed the experience. Schumann has excellent paces, and is very brave and confident when ridden in the bush, also he is an excellent free jumper. Schumann has had lots of travel experience, has been shod several times and has been rugged all winter. He is a sensitive horse, but quickly becomes friendly and affectionate with people he knows.
We expect BP Schumann to be around 16.00hh when mature. He is unblemished with perfect feet and legs, an outstanding prospect for all disciplines.
We have not the slightest doubt that in the right stable he will become and outstanding performer.

|Blackall Park Ravel (Blackall Park Kokomo / Balmoral Lucy) - Grey gelding DOB 22/10/13 POA |
To view pedigree click here Blackall Park Ravel
Blackall Park Ravel will be a tall horse, already 16.2hh with a lot of growing to do. He is the last foal from one of our best producing mares Balmoral Lucy, a wonderful bay mare who produced 11 outstanding foals for us. Among those outstanding horses were full brothers, Blackall Park Dartagnan, Blackall Park Jive and Denali Blue. Balmoral Lucy, (Ravel's Dam) is also grand dam of the brilliant Showjumping mare Rhapsody in Blue, and also the highly promising eventer Blackall Park Rap.
BP Ravel is exceptionally quiet and friendly. He has excellent feet and legs and is unblemished. Ravel was broken in at Blackall Park in June 2017 and was easy going from day one. Since being broken in he has had lots of bush riding, and has also been out to several other venues with different riders. Ravel has been shown poles on the ground, and some small natural obstacles, all of which he handled extremely well. Ravel has also has a few runs in our free jumping lane and shows very good technique and plenty of scope.
BP Ravel's sire BP Kokomo, (1), (2), a horse with extraordinary jumping ability, was only used at stud for two seasons. The first of his foals to be broken in are all nice big horses proving to be very easy to get going. Another horse from the first group of foals by Kokomo, BP Chopin was purchased from us by Kristy Bruhn who broke him in. Kristy has just brought him out in the showjumping arena as a four year old. Chopin's above average ability is attracting attention already. We believe Ravel, a very similar type will also be exceptional.
BP Ravel appears to be a slower maturing type, but by our experience the slower growers are tougher and less prone to setbacks once they begin their careers under saddle. We have the highest expectations for this delightful young gelding.

|Blackall Park Beethoven (Valhalla / Blackall Park Margot) - Grey Gelding DOB 20/9/2013 POA (Unbroken)|
To view pedigree click here Blackall Park Beethoven
Blackall Park Beethoven is an outstanding individual. He is very much like his sire Valhalla in type. He was left as a colt until he was three years old and has a very regal appearance and demeanor. He is a quiet gelding and will be easy to get going I'm sure. Beethoven is full brother to Sadie Greig the very nice jumping mare owned and ridden by Vicky Mc Cathie, and to Emmaville Van Gogh, a very promising five year old bay gelding owned and trained by Grant Hughes in Canberra.
We started to break Beethoven in a few months ago and he was going really well, but unluckily bumped his hind leg on a gatepost and had to be spelled. The injury was very minor, and has now completely recovered leaving only a very small scar. I have included photos of the scar taken 1/11/2017. He is now in top condition, and if not sold unbroken within the next month, will be broken in at Blackall Park, and then after becoming established under saddle will be re-offered for sale .
Beethoven is currently 16hh, but will definitely grow another inch or two. He is an excellent mover and a stylish freejumper. We believe he represents a great opportunity for some one looking for a high level horse.

|Blackall Park Beyonce (Blackall Park Twist / Blackall Park San Tropez) - Grey Filly DOB 23/10/2013 POA (Unbroken)|
To view pedigree click here Blackall Park Beyonce
Blackall Park Beyonce is a particularly charismatic individual, a big personality, undoubtedly inherited from her mother BP San Tropez. She will not be all that tall, probably not over 16hh but is certain to have above average ability. BP Beyonce's sire Blackall Park Twist, (2), (3), is becoming well known as a sire of exceptional horses. From very few old enough to compete he has several excellent young showjumping sons, and two outstanding event horses. Her dam BP San Tropez is very fast and clean and is rarely unplaced in competition.
Beyonce is a strongly built filly and will make up for her size with a very strong constitution. She is particularly friendly and will be very easily broken in I'm sure. We feel very confident that BP Beyonce will be a bit special and should be considered by those perhaps not wanting to go to the top in showjumping but wanting a highly competetive horse for mid level comps. I can imagine her as a sensational junior horse after a few years experience.

|Blackall Park Holiday (Blackall Park Kokomo / Kamikase Kitty) - Grey Filly DOB 22/12/2013 POA (Unbroken)|
To view pedigree click here Blackall Park Holiday
Blackall Park Holiday is one of only two fillies ever by BP Kokomo. (1), (2), She is a nice type although not as tall as all of the other horses by Kokomo. She has a slight blemish on one hind leg, but is not unsound. She is very quiet and easy to handle and is certainly a filly worthy of an opportunity, and one that may well surprise.
|Blackall Park Cinzano (V'Tropez / Blackall Park Margot) - Bay Gelding DOB 23/9/14 POA (Unbroken)|
To view pedigree click here Blackall Park Cinzano
Blackall Park Cinzano is one of only five horses in Australia by his sire V'Tropez. All five have been bred at Blackall Park. The two oldest, BP Revolution, and BP San Tropez have started their showjumping careers, and both show above average ability. All of the V'Tropez horses have friendly trusting dispositions and are highly trainable. Cinzano in particular is a real "people's" horse, the first one to greet you in the paddock and happy to co-operate at all times. Like the others by his sire he has above average bone and eminates strength. Also like all of the others he is a solid colour which I suspect he would pass on to his offspring if he was used a sire. Those interested in breeding will note that his sire is by Galoubet, one of the most influential showjumping sires ever. Cinzano's dam BP Margot is proving to be a great dam of showjumpers. Three of her foals Sadie Greig,(by Valhalla) BP Manangatang (by Romany Ego Z), and Emmaville Van Gogh also by Valhalla have started their jumping careers and all are exceptional.
Cinzano has recently been broken in at Blackall Park and has been very easy from day one. He has a faultless nature with excellent paces. Cinzano will mature to at least 16.2hh but probably a bit above that.
We believe Cinzano is certain to be a high level performer himself if given the right opportunity. He would also be worthy of a stud career for local breeders wanting to introduce some of the best showjumping blood in the world.

|Blackall Park Bourbon (Blackall Park Twist / Lucky Belle) - Bay Gelding DOB 20/10/14 POA (Unbroken)|
To view pedigree click here Blackall Park Bourbon
Blackall Park Bourbon is a favourite of mine. He is going to be bigger than most of the others by BP Twist that are from TB mares. He has had less handling than the others because he is the easiest. Bourbon has great legs and feet and ideal conformation. Despite being three quarters TB he is very Warmblood in type. His dam Lucky Belle is a very tall TB mare who is exceptionally quiet. Bourbon is her first foal, and because of his quality she was put to V'Tropez and has since had a second colt foal (BP Quebec), and in 2017 a colt by BP Revolution both we think are exceptional. The foals by BP Twist that have been tried so far have impressed greatly, definitely comparable with many imports. We think Bourbon is likely to be one of the best of them. My hope is that he finds a home with experienced people looking for a horse for the top level.
|Blackall Park Bacardi (Blackall Park Twist / Solbelle) - Bay Gelding DOB 22/10/14 POA (Unbroken)|
To view pedigree click here Blackall Park Bacardi
Blackall Park Bacardi is a smaller type than most by Twist. We would expect him to be about 15.3hh when mature. He is a very pleasant easy going horse and would not be difficult to get going I'm sure. He is the second foal from Solbelle by BP Twist. The first, BP Schumann, now a four year old, has been recently broken in at Blackall Park and is performing beyond expectation, a truly lovely horse with a big future I'm sure, we fel sure Bacardi will be similar.
|Blackall Park Rum (Blackall Park Revolution / Sweet Swing) - Chestnut Gelding DOB 1/11/14 POA (Unbroken)|
To view pedigree click here Blackall Park Rum
Blackall Park Rum is a very impressive youngster. Like all of the foals by his sire BP Revolution he has more than average bone. He is growing fast and will be taller than the other foals from Sweet Swing. The oldest of those foals Sweet Twist, formally owned,trained and ridden by Kate Peel is proving to be a very talented performer.
Rum has the placid nature that is common to all of Revolution's foals which will make him a pleasure to train and own.

|Blackall Park Sambuca (Blackall Park Revolution / Blackall Park Granada) - Grey Gelding DOB 25/1/2015 POA (Unbroken)|
To view pedigree click here Blackall Park Sambuca
Sambuca is a beautiful type of young gelding by BP Revolution. He is from BP Granada, who is a full sister to BP Poem, the incredibly successful broodmare that produced Emily Riley's superstar Rhapsody in Blue
Sambuca will mature to about 16.1hh. A truly lovely horse that appears to have everything, looks, pedigree, movement, jumping ability and temperament.
is quite mature in appearance, and most visitors to Blackall Park have
considered him the most striking horse in the group. For discerning
buyers who like to have not only a high probability of top performance,
but also a stunning horse as well, Sambuca fits the bill.
|Blackall Park Martini (Blackall Park Revolution / Sixty Too) - Brown Filly DOB 10/11/14 POA (Unbroken)|
To view pedigree click here Blackall Park Martini
BP Martini is a delightful young mare. She is a brown mare with no white markings who does not really stand out in the group. However when inspected closely she measures up very well. She is a good size, has excellent legs and general conformation with a very pleasant expression and a kind eye. She is yet another young horse by BP Revolution that has inherited his ten out of ten temperament.
Martini will probably not be the first sold from the age group, but may well be the equal of any. I enjoy doing anything with her and would not be sorry if she stays on at Blackall Park. She will I'm sure be a delightful horse to ride, and eventually may become a superb broodmare.
|Blackall Park Vodka (Blackall Park Twist / Daisy's Yarn) - Grey Gelding DOB 19/12/14 POA (Unbroken)|
To view pedigree click here Blackall Park Vodka
Vodka is very quiet. He is strongly built and will also be quite tall. His mother, Daisy's Yarn is taller than average for a TB. Those interested in breeding will note that Daisy's Yarn has a double cross of Sir Tristram who is becoming well known for passing on jumping ability. Vodka's sire BP Twist (1) (2) (3) similarly is rapidly building a reputation as a sire of outstanding jumping horses. (1) (2) (3) (4)
Blackall Park Vodka is the second foal from her dam. The first, Blackall Park Chopin a gelding by BP Kokomo was purchased by Kristy Bruhn. Chopin has broken in well and is already showing above average ability. Chopin is about 16.2hh as a four year old, but still has some growing to do.
Vodka is a nice mover and would be suitable for either showjumping or eventing in our opinion.
|Blackall Park Tequila (Blackall Park Twist / Ellie May) - Grey Gelding DOB 24/12/14 POA (Unbroken)|
Blackall Park Tequila is the third foal from his dam Ellie May. The first foal from Ellie Mae, Blackall Park Penny Lane now a seven year old mare is ridden by Becky Jenkins. Penny Lane shows way above average ability and is already performing at Mini Prix level.
Ellie Mae's second foal Blackall Park Clarence, now a five year old is a tall horse,(17.2hh). He is a very talented horse ridden brilliantly by Samantha Sant and is turning heads wherever he goes. Video of BP Clarence
We expect Tequila to be very similar to Clarence, perhaps not quite as tall. Tequila is a friendly easy going horse who will be easy to work with I'm sure. For those who believe, (as I do) that mares who have produced superstars do so consistently, Tequila should be snapped up, as both of the foals from Ellie Mae broken in so far have international potential for sure.
Tequila would be a perfect prospect for someone who likes to do the job from scratch knowing that they have a horse with the necessary potential to go far.

|Blackall Park Vancouver (V'Tropez / Poppy) - Brown Gelding DOB 29/10/15 POA (Unbroken)|
Blackall Park Vancouver is a slightly diferent type to others in his age group. His mother is specifically bred for dressage and we believe has passed on to Vancouver a higher head and neck carriage than others in his age group. He is an exceptional mover with a bright personality. He is however very friendly and easy to do anything with. We expect that he will mature to about 16.2hh, but is very well grown for a two year old, and may well grow taller than that . He is all jumping on his sires side, so we expect him to be a talented all rounder.

|Blackall Park Toronto (Blackall Park Twist / Solbelle) - Bay Gelding DOB 5/11/15 POA (Unbroken)|
Blackall Park Toronto is a particularly nice type. He is three quarter TB and in my view would be suitabale for either Showjumping or Eventing. Toronto is full brother to BP Schumann, and BP Bacardi, both listed above. His oldest brother BP Schumann was broken in earlier this year and is a delightful horse under saddle. He is bright and alert, but not spooky, he is a good travellor with three excellent paces, and is very brave. We feel sure that Toronto will have all of these qualities plus the added advantage of being taller than his brothers.

|Blackall Park Alberta (Blackall Park Twist / Daisy's Yarn) - Grey Filly DOB 15/4/16 POA (Unbroken)|
Blackall Park Alberta is a very stylish filly with excellent manners and above average movement. She was born out of season, but is well grown and is already as tall as those born the previous Spring. She is the third foal from Daisy's Yarn. Daisy's Yarn's first foal BP Chopin was purchased from us by Kristy Bruhn, and is already attracting attention in the jumping arena. Alberta is particularly easy to do anything with. She has good conformation, feet and legs and is unblemished. Our expectation is that Alberta will become an outstanding competition horse, and should be considered by professionals or those wishing to train a horse for high level competition.
