And The Beat Goes On will be first remembered as one of the most successful horses ever to enter the ring in Oklahoma City. His six world championships in the Park Harness division will endure for generations to come. As successful as “Bud” was in the show ring, we are looking to even better things from his foals. Among his early progeny, Uppercase Innovation, Own The Night, DMH Back In Black, and Dragonsmeade Carnaros have already established themselves on the world champion stage. Dragonsmeade Axios and Dragonsmeade Big Night among others look to continue that legacy. His foals are unique and show every bit of drive and beauty their sire is known for.
Beethoven’s progeny have amassed many World Championships. He is a proven producer of world champions in nearly every division in Oklahoma from multi-world champion Dragonsmeade CarnegieHall, RJMF Symphonic Music, Dragonsmeade Virtuoso, and Dragonsmeade Bravura in the English Pleasure, Pleasure Driving and In-Hand divisions, to Dragonsmeade Crescendo in the Hunter division. Beethoven’s track record is well established. As a homozygous stallion, his foals are only bays, browns, and blacks. His foals have smooth lines and excellent attitudes both in the stall and in the show ring. We’ve recently crossed him to our prized broodmare Donatella, and she had a beautiful filly in 2011.
This magnificent young stallion is by Beethoven and out of the dam of Simply Maserati. We believe this young stallion will leave a very important mark on the Morgan breed and have bred our best mares to him over the past few seasons. He produces big foals that are extremely upheaded and have beautiful length of leg and top line. When people walk through the fields of Dragonsmeade, everyone always picks out the Bocelli foals as they have such a unique and wonderful look. Be one of the first to have a foal by this stallion everyone will be talking about in years to come.
Along with his half brother, Icon, Axios may be one of the best stallions we’ve bred. By multi World Champion And The Beat Goes On and out of multi World Champion HVK Obisidian, Axios is a dream cross. We have bred him to most of our top foundation brood mares. This big stallion is extremely upheaded and has a dynamic park trot reminiscent of his sire And The Beat Goes On and his maternal grandsire HVK Bell Flaire. Axios is in training with Tim Roesink at Grove Pointe Stables. 2010 marked the year for his first foal crop, and his offspring are exotic and very upheaded. Not only is he a dynamic show horse, Axios is proving to be an amazing producer….. we are thrilled with him!
Nick is the second foal out of Dragonsmeade Ibarra. Given her pedigree we are able to breed her to most of our stallions. When we first crossed her to Dragonsmeade Icon she produced the beautiful Dragonsmeade Mighty Quinn. For 2014 we bred her to Dragonsmeade Axios, and this colt is every bit as beautiful as his 3/4 brother. Nick puts his head and neck straight up, and for a young horse with no shoe, his motion is big and rolling. Nick put on a great show at 2016 Grand Nationals placing third in the world championship class! 2017 will be a dynamic year for this promising colt! Driving this stud is better than driving any sports car! He is a blast!

Onyx is the first of this cross. He is one of the best colts we’ve bred, and he is a near perfect mix of Mizrahi and Obsidian with his exotic head, smooth body, and dynamic park motion. Under the direction of Tim Roesink his record is unparalleled. His first foal crop starting in 2010 is proving to be most impressive.
Ibarra has had exceptional foals for our farm. Cat is as exotic as his full brother Quinn, yet we also see his three quarter brother in him as well. His motion is light and airy, and his confirmation for a young stud is correct. We are excited to see this big colt grow up!
Max is a phenomenal stallion out of our beloved Dancity Gracious Remark and by our incredible Axios! The cross is one we thought about for a while before we bred these two special horses. He has the best qualities of both Spot and Forrest. Max had a phenomenal world champion debut show season in 2014. He was “The Horse” everyone talked about at the Grand Nationals! Vendome is undefeated in all of his age group world championships since he was a two year old!
