1/4/14 Royal Reverie

1/4/14 Moving along with more horses whose names begin with the letter R, let's check out the Royals and the Reverie's.  There are 325 registered Saddlebreds with some form of Reverie in their name.  Many were the product of Reverie Knoll Farm in Danville Kentucky which was owned by Mr. & Mrs. Freeman Keyes during the 1940's.  The most famous horse with a Reverie's prefix was Reverie's Desdemona and she had an earlier post.  And there actually was a horse name Royal Reverie, but his name was changed a few times and there isn't a picture of him. 

Reverie's Bourbon Gale
He was sired by Bourbon Genius

Reverie's Copper Sheen
She was sired by Mountain Peavine

Reverie's Grey Pearl
She was sired by Lucky Jean by Jean Val Jean
Reverie's Kentucky Belle
She was sired by Anacacho Denmark and was shown in Fine Harness
where she was a Reserve World's Champion at the Kentucky State Fair.

Reverie's Syncopating Sally
She was also sired by Anacacho Denmark and later
became a broodmare.

Reverie's Thunderhead
Sired by Bourbon Genius out of Bugle Anne, so he was a half brother of
CH Edith Fable, The Supreme Ace, CH Ann Gray and BHF Reverie's :Poinciana.

He and Noble Kalarama were both sired by Kalarama Rex, both were owned
at one time by Jack Thompson, and both were shown at the Kentucky State Fair in Fine Harness.
Royal Kalarama sired breeding stallion King of Rose-a-Lee, the nice broodmare Chocolate Kiss
and the mare Star Spangled Rhythm who produced BHF Patsy Li.

she was bred by Jack Thompson.

Royal Rex Sea
Kalarama Rex X Mountain Vine
His son Bobby Sea was a well known breeding stallion and he had two daughters
in the Broodmare Hall of Fame, Lullaby Baby and Royal Surprise.
The American Saddlebred blog now has its own Facebook page.  If you follow it on Facebook, I think you can be advised of new posts.  I'm not into Facebook, so I'm not really sure, but try it and give the page a "like" if you enjoy any of this trivia on the American Saddelebred. 

Here are three more "Royals" that I missed the first time around.  

Royal Irish
3 gaited horse being ridden by Miss Mary Fisher  from a picture
in the September 1932 Saddle & Bridle.
He was a 3/4 brother to Oklahoma Peavine, being out of the same
dam, Margaret O'Neill and by a son of Rex Peavine.
Royal Return
Yorktown X CH Bellisima by Valley View Supreme
Here is a son of two World's Champions. 
Wasn't he stunning?

CH CH-EQ Callaway's Royal Request
Merchant Prince X Callaway's Special Request by Will Shriver
A good show horse and good equitation horse as noted by his CH CH-EQ status.
