Illux is a beautiful black Trakehner stallion, who
is very typey with a fabulous expression, well balanced uphill gaits,
and a wonderful work ethic.
He was an elite auction foal at Neumunster in 2001 and his comments
were: " The first foal by German Champion Latimer to enter the auction
ring in the Hostenhalle. This well developed black colt is a dream,
an eye-catcher in every company and was a success at the foal shows
at Medingen and Bad Segeberg as well."
Illux was bought at the auction by the famous Danish
Blue Hors Stud as a stallion prospect.
He returned to Neumunster for the Stallion Approvals in October of
2003, where he showed a quiet easy temperament, lovely gaits (especially
the canter) and very good free jumping ability. He was German Verband
approved with the comment: "This striking son of the National Champion
Latimer impresses with his beautiful face, his great silhouette of
the harmonious body and high quality equilibrium of his overall impression"
. After his purchase at the auction (with the great help of Trakehners
International, especially Maren and Klaus Engelhardt), he was sent
to the Horstein stud to prepare for his 30 day test in the spring
of 2004. After passing his 30 day test he went back to Horstein to
continue his training and stand at stud to a few select mares.
Illux has been training as a hunter and will be showing
this spring in the baby green division. He has lovely form over fences
and has continued to impress us with his quiet willing nature and
his quickness to learn.
ILLUX did very well at the recent SSITS hunter show
in Victoria, winning reserve champion in the baby green division ridden
by Tanya Hardy. We are very proud of him!
ILLUX's first 2 foals of the year were born within
a day of each other. 2 beautiful colts, and so similar to their sire!!!
