Sire of Dam: Love Affair
Foal Date: June 22, 2010
Price Class: A
Cortes RC is a handsome gelding who combines a fantastic disposition with a great sport horse pedigree. Due to his maturity, he gained experience in the free jump chute coming into his third year. He has impressed us with his consistency, rhythm, technique and powerful hind end. Cortes should have plenty of scope to jump the big fences.
His sire, Cortegiano, was a successful jumper stallion who competed at the S level with a Rancho Corazon rider. His paternal grandsire, Heartland Farm's Conejo, also competed at the Grand Prix level with Canadian rider Karen Cudmore. Among his many accomplishments, Conejo won the $65,000 Grand Prix Jumping Du Quebec World Cup Qualifier at CSI-W Blainville in 2005.
Cortes' dam, Zapata, is by Love Affair, a beautiful stallion with an exceptional mind: He is generous, kind and forgiving. Love Affair stamps his offspring with his sweet and gentle disposition, along with his outstanding athletic ability. He moves with lightness and grace and has a lofty jump. The outstanding qualities of Love Affair's offspring are proven by results in the show ring. His daughter, Ocita (out of Ines by Merano), was the unanimous Grand Champion of the 2004 Devon Breed Show. At Devon 2003, Ladies' Man (out of Delphine by Merano) won Suitable to be a Dressage Horse for 4-year-olds and My Love (out of Delphine by Merano) was the High Point American bred mare at Devon 2003.
