7/26/16 More on Longview's Supreme and his son Titleist

Last week's post featured Longview's Supreme, a breeding son of Valley View Supreme.  Unlike some of Valley View Supreme's other sons, Longview's Supreme didn't get much opportunity at stud until he was older, and only averaged about 5 colts per year.  Despite this handicap, he sired many good show horses.  After completing the post, of course I stumbled across several more good offspring which are pictured here.  This week also looks at one of Longview's Supreme's best breeding sons, the beautiful Titleist.

Here he is in fine harness when he was still a stallion.

This WC 5gaited gelding also appeared in the last post, but this is a better picture.

One of Longview's Supreme's best offspring was Titleist.  He was a 4 time World's champion in the 5 gaited division, winning  the 3 year old class in 1978, Junior Stallion/Gelding class in 1979 and the 5 Gaited Stallion Stake in both 1980 and 1981. After his show days were over, he had a lengthy career at stud and sired some successful show horses.   Shown below are four nice pictures of  Titleist, and a couple of his CHampion offspring.

And then there is a horse named Too Much Titleist.  In his 3 generation pedigree, Titleist appeared 3 times.  His son Titleist Memory was this horses' double grandsire and also appearing on his pedigree was Titleist Dynamite, Titleist Cindarella and Titleist Forget Me Not.  No doubt about it, this horse was appropriately named!

7/10/16 Longview's Supreme

Longview's Supreme was sired by the great Valley View Supreme and out of  A Sheer Delight BHF.  He was a chestnut foal with no markings, and was born in 1960.  Always the inquisitve colt, he was good natured and friendly.  One trait got him into trouble and the second saved him.  An eye injury as a yearling took away all possibility of being shown, but with his strong pedigree, and great disposition, it was decided to breed him to some mares.  While his results were good, mare owners stayed away from Longview's Supreme.  There were other advertised stallions that drew more mares, so it wasn't until Lonview's Supreme was an older stallion in his late teens that he started getting the recognition he deserved.
