Fantom

Fantom as a yearling

Fantom was the second of Wolkenstanza's three embryo transfer foals of 2009 to arrive. He was born the afternoon of April 5th while Stanza was actually competing in a dressage show in Jacksonville. The embryo transfer surrogate dam Mama's Poundcake did her job beautifully, producing a healthy baby boy and nurturing him well from the moment he arrived. Fantom is a full brother to last year's Fidertanz colt Fidelio, and if they were peas in a pod, they could not be much more alike. Like Fidelio, Fantom has very elastic movement, springing off the ground with every trot step. His walk is correct and his canter is ground covering. He has an easy, sweet disposition. He will make some dressage rider very happy one day.

Fantom was sold to Beverly Zimmer. We thanks her for the latest pics of this lovely boy, seen above and below. She is starting him under saddle in spring 2012, and reports he has an incredibly powerful set of gaits.
