(Feliz du Carel X Sentencia PI)
Perlino PRE filly
Congratulations Pam of New York
on her second purchase of a
Walnut Creek Ranch P.R.E.!!
Refaga is a stunning filly and the grand result of this new match.
She is bold, BIG and breathtaking!
45" at 3 weeks old, she was measured again at
5 months and she is now 51" tall
Look at those legs and know she
will be a tall commanding presence as a mature mare.
Her DNA color testing is AaEECrCrggnd1/nd1 with
no white markings.
With her dam scoring 8's for movement at revision and her sire
a multiple dressage Champion already, her movement will
take your breath away and she already shows the potential
for an FEI prospect and a winning partner in the dressage ring.
Just look at her front end lift, flat extensions,
impulsion, hock engagement and flexibility.
With her lineage, color, conformation and movement,
she will also exel in the breeding shed.
Her sire, Feliz du Carel was also imported like her dam and both
are products of the renown Paco Marti Spanish bloodlines
In 2022, Feliz du Carel won year end USDF All Breeds Award
Vintage Cup for PRE at First Level
He consistently scores high in open competition and already
qualified for Regionals and Championships for 2023 at 2nd level

Don't let this bright and beautiful treasure get away!

Walnut Creek Ranch.
I definitely wanted a Rico son, as a gelding, for my next personal mount and the last horse I would train to ride, so Carbonero became the natural choice. Of all Rico's 40+ babies, Nero looked the most like his sire and my treasured mount for over 20 years. Nero's height, color, temperament and movement suited me to a "T" and thus I am going to keep him for my next riding partner.
Here are few photos as he is growing up so that you can see how prepotent the cross of Rico and Sentencia continues to prove.
Here is the calendar girl at 3 months old
She and Della, my photographer, won and
she will be featured in one of the months
