Dunsandle Diamond is a rarity. The sons of Coolcronan Wood are scarce and therefore in high demand.

jumpingThe shining “strawberry” roan Irish Draught stallion was presented in 2016 for the first time at a multi-breed sport horse stud. Keen to offer an R.I.D. stallion, who will be attractive equally, to both pure-bred and Irish Sport horse breeders is a priority of Drumhowan Stud. Astutely sourced, it is believed that Dunsandle Diamond has all the attributes to satisfy these flourishing markets.

BREEDING

“Commencing on the crest of a wave”...Dunsandle Diamond

SIRE: Coolcronan Wood by Sea Crest ex Augustas Vintage

DAM: Kennedy Diamond out of Glidawn Diamond out of Rearcross Silver by Fast Silver

Born in 2006, Dunsandle Diamond is one of only three sons of Coolcronan Wood at stud in Ireland. True to form, he now resides in the former stable of Crystal Crest, exported to the USA and Castle Crest, sold to Mr. Wm. Savelkouls, by Drumhowan Stud. The influence of their grand-sire Sea Crest is still remarkable to this day. The dam, Kennedy Diamond, is supremely well bred. By Glidawn Diamond and from a Fast Silver dam, these bring together the best of proven performance and popular show ring sires. Boasting an EBV-SJ rating of 109, with a reliability of 0.46% and 15% TB., Dunsandle Diamond is certain to influence Irish Sport and Pure Bred horse breeding in a positive direction.

PERFORMANCE

Awarded Class 1 status in the R.I.D. Studbook in 2012, Dunsandle
Diamond received a glowing profile report, robustly endorsing his
attitude, care, scope under saddle, along with correct conformation
and “free” movement.

Competed by lady rider Katherine Arthur up to and at 1.30m, he carries the Silver Merit and importantly now is Fully Approved on the I.S.H. Studbook for TB and part-bred mares alike.
