This bay 1997 filly is a true rarity as the only Trakehner mare out of a daughter of racing legend Nijinsky II. Daughters of Nijinsky II produce an average of 33 % Stakes Winners and are sold at public auctions for average prices of more than $ 200.000, so breeding a daughter of this legend to a Warmblood doesn't make commercial sense.

But in the fall of 1995 we were fortunate enough to be able to buy a 17 year old dark bay daughter of Nijinsky II, the 16.1 h mare Native Ballet. She had only three starts, but her efforts on the track made her one of the top two year old fillies in Canada, raced by Sam-Son Farms. As a broodmare, she had produced 100 % winners from starters when we bought her, so the logical thing was to breed her to a Thoroughbred.

But since we wanted to introduce these bloodlines into the Trakehner breed, we decided to breed Native Ballet to the dark bay Enrico Caruso son Insterfuerst, who's dam Insterschwalbe II is a full sister to the Neumuenster Reserve Champion Insterruf, still standing at stud in New Mexico at the age of 30.

In 1997, the bay filly Native Princess was born. At her foal inspection, she received mainly 8s from Dr. Baird, and her meanwhile 19 year old dam was accepted into the PSB with a total score of 48 and an 8 on conformation.

Unfortunately, we lost this wonderful mare one year later, when she foaled an outstanding bay filly by Champion Kostolany, which also died. So it will be up to Native Princess to carry her dam's legacy as a Trakehner foundation mare.

Native Princess foaled the gray colt Nordwind by Preachinatthebar xx, on May 30th, 2012. This big moving and very personable youngster is for sale.

Sadly, we lost our beautiful mare one year later to a severe case of laminitis. We miss you, Princess!
