Sire: Silver Meadow's Phantom Storm AMHA 160412 AMHR
Dam: LR Scouts Excellent Secret
We recently bought Secret to show in driving and add to our breeding program. Since the first time I saw his sire in the ring at the World Show in 2007, I became a huge fan. I made a point to find the owner and to our delight realized that they were customers of ours, Don and Mary Lou Knaap, who had bought some of mares at the World Sale. His sire who currently has sixteen World Championships, two Reserve World Championships, and FOUR World Grand Championships in Single Pleasure Driving holds a record which is unmatched, I believe, in AMHA history.
We took two mares to breed to Phantom Storm in 2012 and while they were there Secret Storm became available and we took advantage of putting more of the excellent driving bloodline into our breeding program. We picked him up at the AMHA Eastern Championship show where Lauren showed him, winning one Country Pleasure Class and reserve in three others. Then we showed him at the World Show where he placed Top Ten in two classes. We also got to cheer his sire as he won his FIFTH World Grand Championship in Single Pleasure Driving and High Point Driving Horse. I think his name should be Phenominal Phantom Storm!!!
Update: Secret was Reserve World Champion Fine Harness Driving at the 2013 AMHA World Show, second to his sire, winning his 32nd World title!
His pedigree is excellent going back to Del's Cowboy, NFC's Fire & Ice, and Ger Mel's Ruth (who has six World titles herself) on the top side. On the bottom side he goes back to Orion-Light Van't Huttenest and Boones Little Buckeroo. If pedigree means anything, he should be a power house in the breeding arena.
