Doctor Wendell MF Fully Approved AHS

Hilltop News Doctor Wendell MF Fully Approved AHS Return to All Hilltop News >>> Beyond the initial licensing by a registry, a breeding stallion must complete additional performance requirements to earn their lifetime approval.  Some do this through stallion testings, but some complete their requirements through show results.  For the AHS, stallions must earn five scores of 63% or higher from five different judges at Prix St. Georges or higher.  We’re thrilled to share the news that Doctor Wendell MF (Don Principe-Sandro Hit) has just completed that requirement in his first five outings at this level.  Under Jim Koford, Doc has earned scores ranging from 65%-74% and he won’t even turn seven until later this spring.  Bred and owned by Marydell Farm, Doc is an outstanding example of US breeding and is just beginning to tap into the potential he has for the FEI work.
