Pleasant Colony–Earthland, by Northern Baby17.2 Hand Tall Dark Bay Stallion
Standing in Illinois for the 2013 Breeding Season! We are sad to announce that we lost Earth Colony on December 20, 2013. He was a joy and a pleasure to be around. He produced some nice foals and will live on forever in our hearts.
A Stallion with a fantastic pedigree and with fine athletic ability, Earth Colony is by Pleasant Colony who won two out of three of the triple crown races. Below is some information about his famous sire, Pleasant Colony In the 1981 Kentucky Derby, Pleasant Colony held off a powerful stretch drive by Woodchopper to win by three-quarters of a length. The expected rivalry with Woodchopper never materialized in the Preakness Stakes. Pleasant Colony came from behind to win by a full length over Arkansas Derby winner Bold Ego with Woodchopper far back in eleventh place. In the third and final leg of the Triple Crown series, the Belmont Stakes, Pleasant Colony fell short, finishing third to winner, Summing. Pleasant Colony went on to win the Grade I Woodward Stakes and after a fourth place finish in the Marlboro Cup Invitational Handicap he was retired to stud duty at Buckland Farm. At year’s end, he was voted the Eclipse Award for Outstanding 3-Year-Old Male Horse.2013 Fee: $ 1000.00 LFG
On July 13, 2008, we lost our Thoroughbred Stallion Comedian. At 22 1/2 years old, he was still going strong and had that beautiful flicker in his eyes I saw 15 years ago. Comedian sure made us smile and was a pleasure to have in our barn. Comedian will always remain in my heart and will forever bring a smile to my face. We still have some of Comedian’s off-spring for sale. Look on the 2009 Foal web site to see the “Final Four Comedian Foals.” Below you can read about Comedian and his pedigree.
