„GMC BLACK VELVET AT BUDEJOVICE, CZECH REPUBLIC“
Velvet” was 6 years old when the Miller-Ranch bought this proud stallion. He already has had his successes in shows, was Champion-Reserve in the Performance Stallion Class and a year ago became World Grand Champion Stallions & Geldings M.
Later on he has won several Performance Classes and was always placed in good positions. Whenever he was shown in the Model Class, all judges agreed; “GMC Black Velvet” was always placed first.
As a 6 years old he came from Missouri to the Miller-Ranch in Arizona. He was the most beautiful horse on the trails around Arizona. With his deep black color and much charisma in his whole appearance he was noticed even in the wilderness. Each hiker and ranger, who saw him, stopped and asked where he came from.
Therefore it was only logical to send him to Europe as ambassador for the breed. There, he became "European Champion of Champions" 2002 and 2004 twice in succession.
His offspring’s are stepping into his footsteps; they already won the Breeders Cup as Model and in Performance. They won the Futurity and placed first in Performance Classes.
His daughters produced World Champions and his offspring in Europe did win several European Championship Titles. Not only in the Performance but also in the Versatility Classes his offspring are successful and they could win several titles.
Velvet’s “Blaze N Bay” has a long record and has won many Versatility World Championship Titles in succession.
