16h, homozygous black, Elite Friesian Sporthorse Grand Prix dressage stallion

Approved  FSA (Friesian Sporthorse Association (Gold Elite))
Approved AWS (American Warmblood Society)


Lexington is a beautiful and well-bred Elite Book Friesian Sporthorse Grand Prix dressage stallion, with a pedigree full of
proven sport bloodlines on both sides.  He is an expressive mover, with three good gaits, a wonderful friendly personality,
and unbeatable trainability.  He blends the beauty and temperament of the Friesian with the stamina and
athleticism of the Thoroughbred.

EVA negative -- tested annually -- tested 2016.
Lexington has been DNA tested as homozygous black (E/E, a/a), meaning his foals will be black or bay
(or possibly grey, only if bred to a grey mare), but he cannot sire chestnut foals. 

Lexington has been very successful on the highly competitive Florida dressage circuit, from his Training Level
debut thru to his current successes at FEI Grand Prix -- including being the USDF All-Breeds
National Champion Friesian Sporthorse at Grand Prix in 2014 and 2015.

FEI Level Dressage Show Record

Lexington is currently competing at Grand Prix and was the 2014 & 2015 USDF All-Breeds National Champion
Friesian Sporthorse at Grand Prix.  He began competing at the FEI level as a 7-year-old, and in 2012 as an 8-year-old he had a fantastically successful year competing at FEI Prix St Georges and FEI Intermediare-I; scoring in the 70's at Prix St Georges, and with scores no lower than 63% at FEI Intermediare-1, and consistently in the ribbons at both levels.  He wrapped up 2012 with a year-end Prix St Georges average of 69.747%, ranked 15th for USDF Horse of the Year 2012 and being named the
USDF All-Breeds Prix St Georges National Champion for 2012 and the FSA High Performance National Champion for 2012.  
A last minute show cancellation left Lexington without enough Intermediare-I scores to be nationally ranked for 2012, unfortunately, although his scores were quite good. Lexington also earned his Gold Elite Book status in 2012, making him
the first and only Friesian Sporthorse stallion so far to have acheived Gold Elite Book status. 
Lexington made his Grand Prix debut in 2013 as a 10-year-old.   

Dressage Career

Lexington has had a very successful dressage career, quickly and successfully moving up the levels. 
As a 4 year-old he scored consistently in the 70's at Training Level, finishing the year ranked 19th in the country for USDF Dressage Horse of the Year at Training Level (2008), and also being named the USDF All-Breeds Champion at Training Level for the Friesian Sporthorse Association.  As a 5-year-old Lexington competed successfully at First Level, still scoring in the 70's, and still winning.  He finished 2009 ranked 35th for USDF Dressage Horse of the Year 2009 at First Level, and also being named the USDF All-Breeds Champion for First Level for the Friesian Sporthorse Association.  Lexington was virtually undefeated at Training and First Level, winning nearly every class he was in.  He was also the IFSHA 2008 Horse of the Year for Training Level (74.6% year-end average) and the IFSHA 2009 Horse of the Year for First Level (72.2% year-end average.)  As a 6 year-old Lexington skipped Second Level and jumped up to Third Level, with scores to 70+%, and still consistently in the ribbons.  Lexington wrapped up 2010 being named USDF All-Breeds Champion at Third Level for the Friesian Sporthorse Association, the 2010 USEF/PHR Third Level Region 3 Reserve Champion, and the FSA High Performance Reserve Champion (with a Third Level average of 69.52%.)   As a 7 year-old Lexington debuted successfully at FEI Prix St Georges, and wrapped up the year as the 2011 FSA High Performance National Champion.  In 2012 Lexington continued to improve on the Prix St Georges (with scores in the 70's) and also made his Intermediare-1 debut (with scores consistently in the 60's.)  He wrapped up 2012 ranked 15th for USDF Horse of the Year at Prix St Georges with a year-end average of 69.747%. 
He was also the USDF All-Breeds National Champion for Prix St Georges, and was named the FSA High Performance National Champion for 2012.  Competing successfully at Grand Prix in 2014, Lexington won yet another
USDF National All-Breeds Award, this time at Grand Prix, and repeated this victory again in 2015.

Fantastic Temperament & Trainability

Lexington has a lovely temperament and fantastic trainability.  On the ground he is friendly and quiet and very well behaved. 
Under saddle he has an incredible work ethic and focus, making him a joy to train.  He's smart and willing, with a
disposition amateurs and professionals would equally appreciate.

Lexington as a Sire

Lexington is also proving himself as a sire, siring a record FIVE National Champion Friesian Sporthorses, a USDF/DSHB two-time Regional Champion (2011 & 2014), a USDF/DSHB Regional Reserve Champion (2013), a USDF/DSHB Regional Reserve Champion (2014), multiple USDF/DSHB Regional Qualifiers, USDF All-Breeds Champions, USDF/DSHB Horse of the Year Top 10 finishers, Inspection High Score Champions, and foals which are consistently earning Bronze Elite status when presented at inspection.  Additionally, Lauderdale ROF currently holds the record for the highest score ever awarded to a Friesian Sporthorse at inspection, a fantastic 89.1%.
In 2013 Lexington was ranked #10 on the USEF Leading Dressage Breeding Sires list.
(Numerous photos, testimonials, video links, etc can be seen by clicking the "Offspring Photos" link, below.)

Lexington's Pedigree

Lexington is a uniquely well-bred Friesian Sporthorse.  His sire is the imported Friesian stallion Baron von Kolderveen,
who was the highest ranked Friesian stallion on the USEF's list of Leading Dressage Sires for 2008.   Baron's sire Reyert
is also the sire of the Grand Prix Friesian Tietse, who was the first Friesian stallion to be approved based on performance.  Baron's grandsire Reitse was an incredibly successful sire, and it is common to see his name in the pedigrees of
sport Friesians.  Reitse sired numerous successful dressage Friesians, including an impressive ten approved stallion sons, including Iron Spring Farm's Grand Prix Friesian stallion Goffert.  Baron's damsire is Peke, another successful sport
Friesian sire.  Peke was known for passing on his beautiful head and strong hindquarters, and was the damsire of the
Grand Prix Friesian stallion Fire Magic (who is also famous as "the red Friesian".)  Also noteable is Baron's
great-grandsire Tamme, who is the sire of 5 approved Friesian stallions.  Tamme is also the sire of the Approved
Friesian Sporthorse stallion Nico, and is the damsire of Iron Spring Farm's FEI level Friesian stallion Ulbert
There are too many successful sport Friesians in Lexington's pedigree to list them all,
but his pedigree is available below.

Lexington is out of a Thoroughbred mare by Denver Kid, and the Thoroughbred side of his pedigree is full of famous Thoroughbreds and some of the most popular names in Thoroughbred sporthorse breeding:  Turn-To, Hail to Reason, Northern Dancer, Native Dancer, My Babu, Sea-Bird, Buckpasser, Nasrullah, Nearco, and Ribot, to name a few.  These names show up in pedigrees from Theodore O'Connor (Pan Am Games event horse) to Olympic Bonfire (Anky van Grunsven's Olympic dressage horse) to Sea Accounts (one of the only Thoroughbred stallions to complete the 100 day test and earn his lifetime breeding license from the RPSI) and Fappiano (USEF leading sire of event horses 2002-2006.)

Foal Registration...

All of Lexington's foals are eligible for registration with the FSA (Friesian Sporthorse Association).
Lexington's foals are also eligible for registration with the AWS (American Warmblood Society) and the
PHR (Performance Horse Registry), as well as the myriad of Friesian crossbred registries.

This is a great opportunity to breed to one of the best known Friesian Sporthorse stallions in the US, one of the only
Approved Friesian Sporthorse stallions, and the only Gold Elite Grand Prix Friesian Sporthorse stallion in the US.
