Family

“The ultimate Thoroughbred sire for quality and performance, with super conformation and temperament.” Oliver Townend

Power Blade differs from many TB sires in the high prevalence of jumping in his pedigree. His father Fine Blade was a show jumper; he has produced 4* The Wexford Lady – herself a producer of the 3* Trevalgar II.

Damsire Forties Field is also damsire to the 3* eventer Brookfield De Bouncer, the 4* Westwood Mariner; and Power Blade’s brother Ballygrangans Sea Breeze, a 2* eventer.

Power Blade has proven himself as a sire of jumpers, eventers and show winners. BGS Juicy Fruit went to the Le Lion World Championships in 2014, and has competed at 2* level, as have Power Drive with Oliver Townend and Fernhill More Like It. Power Drive won the CIC2* section at Floors Castle in 2016.

Progeny

Shantonagh, out of a King of Diamonds daughter, jumps to 1.40m, and was a 7yr Champion in Ireland under Nicola FitzGibbon. BGS Ocean View, out of a Power Blade mare, jumps to 1.50m.

In the show ring, Power Blade has produced Hitman – a Lightweight Hunter Champion; Springfield Ronda, who was all-Ireland champion as both a yearling and 2yr old; Woodfield Indo, a middleweight champion under Katie Jerram; Chantry Clover Girl, the 2007 Supreme In-Hand Champion at the Royal Show; and Aredis Power Beam, a prolific in-hand champion in 2014.

Katie Jerram said “I have two Power Blde horses both with hard flat bone, superb conformation, good temperaments, very sound and with great ability.”
