American dressage and breeding farm Iron Spring Farm has purchased the highly popular 4-year old KWPN breeding stallion Sir Sinclair. The 17 hands high bay stallion Sir Sinclair is by the Bavarian bred Lord Sinclair (by Lanciano) out of Krishna (Flemmingh x Le Mexico).
Sir Sinclair finished 9th overall in his 100-day stallion test at Ermelo, but scored the highest on dressage.
Sir Sinclair, who is bred by Monica Drohm from Wijnbergen, The Netherlands, gained his first fame by being the price highlight of the 2002 KWPN Select Sale stallion auction in 's Hertogenbosch. Through the auction, owners Jaap Jonker and Anton Geessink sold their bay stallion for 360,000 € to Ed Constant from Wijdewormer, The Netherlands. In his first breeding year, Sir Sinclair was bred to 155 mares.
Iron Spring Farm, located in Coatesville, PA, is owned by Mary Alice Malone, whose both daughters are successful young riders in the United States. Iron Spring Farm's first renowned stallion was the KWPN sire Roemer. They are currently stationing well known imported sires Juventus, Contango and Akatschi among several of their own bred licensed stallions.
