9/25/16 Wing's Fleet Admiral, the Wing Commander Legacy part 2

Wing's Fleet Admiral was from one of Wing Commander's earlier foal crops.  Foaled in 1959, his dam was 22 when he was born, and he himself lived only 10 short years.  His show career, unlike that of his sire, was cut very short due to problems with laminitis.  His case was so severe, it eventually ended his life, but luckily he produced four complete foal crops from 1966 thru 1969, and had one final foal born in 1970 after his death.  Since the blog is reviewing those sire lines from CH Wing Commander which are still intact today, we're only looking at his male offspring.  This line is alive and well.  First we'll list the stallion sons of Wing's Fleet Admiral, and go from there.  I tried to list the main stallions, but please let me know if I missed anyone.  Anyone highlighted in yellow is still breeding as of 2016.

Thanks for reading this through to the end.  I know it's a little hard to follow at times.  The whole point is that there are a lot of ways to have Wing Commander on the top side of your pedigree, and all of these horses came through Wing Commander's son Wing's Fleet Admiral. 

Next time will continue with the Wing Commander Legacy to see how another of his son's has carried on his line.  Not sure who I'll choose yet. 

And as always, visit The American Saddlebred Blog's Face book page and like it!

CH Admiral's Mark was sired by CH Courageous Admiral by Wing's Fleet Admiral by CH Wing Commander.  He was a gelding, but another one of my favorites.  He was a multi WC and shown for many years by both Mary Gaylord McLean and Randi Stuart Wightman.
