Fanfare – Finnigan / EM Contucci / Bordeaux / Weltmeyer, June 24, 2022
We are delighted with this tall, masculine colt — and already see sparks of magic. Fanfare is strongly stamped by his sire, Finnigan, by Floriscount / Don Schufro / Rubinstein — a performance pedigree extraordinaire. As a 3-year old Hanoverian the striking liver-chestnut Finnigan became the winner of the 14-day Stallion Performance Testing in Neustadt/Dosse, scoring 8.96 for dressage. Highlights included 10.0 character/temperament, 9.5 for rideability, 9.25 guest rider, 9.0 for his trot, 9.0 walk, 8.5 canter.
Finnigan is a tall, leggy, correct stallion with beautiful type combined with 3 excellent elastic gaits. He clearly shows a high level of rideablity and an excellent work ethic … all qualities much sought after by breeders. In 2019 Finnigan was awarded the Weltmeyer Prize as one of Hanover’s best young dressage stallions!
Fanfare’s dam EM Chenya completed a very good MPT as a youngster, and has been an excellent producer, with Foal Show winners, MPT winners, and FEI competitors among her offspring. Her genetics are excellent – with her full brother “Cabana Boy” recognized as a major talent in USA Dressage history.
This colt has a sweet, easy temperament (like his sire), charisma, uphill conformation, strong frame … and 3 elastic correct gaits. He is starting to show a powerful trot, and moves with balance and lightness in all gaits. Will likely shed out liver chestnut, like his sire.

Fanfare is Under Contract to a knowledgeable home, destined for a show career (with lots of cuddling along the way).
