Bobby Dazzler has now been campaigned on the Eventing circuit at Ryan’s Horses for the last three years. He started in the 80cm classes and right from the ‘get go’ he has won more classes than not. Bobby is a real winner.
Dressage – Bobby is bred in the purple being by the dressage stallion, Damsey. Damsey is a fabulous German Grand Prix dressage stallion who in turn is by the absolute best dressage bloodline in the world, Donnerhall. Damsey on the dam line however, carries Ramiro blood and also Ladykiller blood which is top of the range German jumping blood. Very interesting and helps explain why Bobby is so talented in both jumping and dressage. Just for the record, Damsey, who is Bobby’s dad, competed in the top 5* dressage shows in Europe winning and placing with scores in the Grand Prix and Grand Prix Freestyle over 80% on many occasions. Even today, this is almost unheard of. Damsey is also the sire of the Australian Grand Prix horse CP Dresden who is competing very successfully in recent times with young rider, Charlotte Phillips in the Under 25 Grand Prix classes.
Bobby is out of the mare Nova Donna Day who is by D-Day who also goes back to Donnerhall. So Bobby does have a double cross of Donnerhall. D-Day was a very popular stallion not so long ago and has sired 11 Grand Prix dressage horses in the Northern Hemisphere. Bobby comes from performance parents on both his sire and his dam side.
Bobby as a dressage horse has only been campaigned lightly due to his focus being on Eventing. Having said that, Bobby is currently competing at Medium level and is winning official classes at this level.
In the Eventing discipline, Bobby is now successfully campaigning at 3* level and we do expect Bobby to be 4* before the end of this year, 2023. With the Paris Olympics just around the corner next year of course the question is, can Bobby take part in the final selection trials and can he perform well enough to be a serious consideration for Australian Selection. The answer to that is that we don't know. We are upgrading as fast as we can whilst always prioritising Bobby's safety and well being. Bobby is going really really well and you will just have to watch this space. Big picture, Bobby is fast emerging as one of the very promising up and coming young Australian Eventers.
Bobby Dazzler is owned by Michael and Margaret Chamberlain who bought him as a foal through the Auction of the Stars here at Heatherbrae in 2012 December Auction. Bobby Dazzler was bred by Hellen Campbell.
Bobby Dazzler is now a gelding which was done because we felt this would promote his chances of achieving his potentials. There is a good amount of frozen semen available, but not unlimited. So there is a live foal guarantee with Bobby, however after two inseminations, we will honour the live foal guarantee with one of the other Ryan’s stallions who have fresh semen available.
Bobby does have a limited number of progeny on the ground and all of these without exception have great temperaments and are going really well with their owners.
