On July 13, 2008, we lost our Thoroughbred Stallion Comedian. At 22 1/2 years old, he was going strong and still had that beautiful flicker in his eyes I saw 14 1/2 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.
This web page for the points and results for 2008. As of July 1, 2008, Fabrizius Farm was 6th in the Country for Breeders of Pony Hunters and number 1 in Illinois!! All of this with Comedian only having two ponies on the “A” Circuit!
Check out the points on the following web page:
COMEDIAN throws foals of color, athletic ability and personality. COMEDIAN is the sire of GONNA GET A SPANKIN top filly of the IL “A” show circuit for 2004, 2005, 2006 and 2007. COMEDIAN is also the sire of Champion pony LUCKY CHARM.
Now COMEDIAN has two foals (GONNA GET A SPANKIN & LUCKY CHARM) that are at the top of the 2005, 2006, 2007 and 2008 “A” circuit. Look for his foals on the Horses for Sale page. Also click on COMEDIAN’S racing photo for more photos of his off-spring.

The first time that Lucky Charm went to the The National Pony Finals in Lexington KY. He placed 25TH out of 71 ponies in Large Green Ponies.
