JDS Spirit of the Century - 2010 Chestnut Stallion
(JDS Legal Enforcer x Liberation Spirit Electra)
This grandson of Whitmore Law and Order and Century Free Spirit carries triple Trophy pedigree. His sire, JDS Legal Enforcer, and dam, Liberation Spirit Electra, enjoyed active show careers in the In-Hand and English Pleasure divisions. "Remi", short for Remington, is a special boy who loves life. He never drops an ear or his tail and expects all who visit to come with carrot in hand.
"Remi" began the his 2010 Show Season as a five week old in training with Damian Hyde. Still attached to his mother's side, he showed in the Michigan Morgan Horse Breeder's Futurity, the Radon Weanling Spectacular, placing in the top 10. He showed in the Michigan Morgan Horse Breeder's Weanling Class, placing 4th and ended his first show as the Reserve Champion in the MMHB Futurity Grand Champion of Show Class. Quite an accomplishment for a not yet 3 month old colt. In 2011, as a yearling, "Remi" was shown at the NY Morgan Regional in September. It was his only showing of the 2011 season. "Remi" won his Yearling Colt In-Hand class, and was crowned Jr. Horse Champion Stallion In-Hand. He went on to win the NYSMHS' Futurity Yearling Colt class and to become the NYSMHS' Futurity Yearling Champion. With only one show for points, JDS Spirit of the Century ranked #3 at the NYSMHS' High Point Award for Jr. Horse In-Hand. Very impressive for this young colt.
"Remi"was shown in the In-Hand division in 2012. He continues to be unbeaten in this division. In 2013, "Remi" was shown lightly in Junior Horse Pl. Driving. He won his division at NYS Breeder's Show in May. He experienced several growth spurts during the first three months of his third year (Remi's foaling date is June 3). We decided to allow him to grow without the pressure of showing.
