Distant Line Breeding to Adentro

Our mare Keberes D is related to Adentro via her damline (Botadora IV) through her grandsire Aragones III (Adentro x Hermosa VIII).

Keberes D and Nobleza D are related to Adentro via their sireline (Granadino XI 1978) through their granddam Granadina VII (Adentro x Hermosa VIII).

Thus,  Fantasia (offspring of Keberes and Remate) are distantly line-bred top and bottom to Adentro.

Romero Benitez Studfarm

picture of brandThe Romero Benitez studfarm got its start in the nineteenth century when the Spanish State confiscated Church properties (then home of the famous Carthusian horses). The Romero family acquired horses descended from these church properties (the Calero lot) and also added mares from Zapata and Hierro del Bocado which was owned by Vicente Romero Garcia.

Horses from the Benitez studfarm can be found in the stables of many European royalty, as well as in Morocco and Saudi Arabia. Today the studfarm is known as Ganadería M. Romero Benítez.

Spanish horse farms such as Yeguada Jordi Matas, Yeguada Hermanos Veterano, Yeguada Alfonso Delgado, Yeguada Arrabal, Yeguada Gomez Tapia, Yeguada Alora, Yeguada Las Arenas, La Yeguada Juan Diaz Navarro, La Yeguada Hispandaluz, Yeguada Cubas, and many others in Spain give credit to Romero Benitez for their founding stock.

Temerario III was sired by the bay military (Yeguada Militar de Jerez) stallion Adentro (Juglar x Sena) and was out of a grey mare Temeraria II (sired by the military stallion Bombardino).

Several of our horses and the stallions we’ve used are related to Temerario III via Adentro. Remate is a great grandson of Temerario III (Adentro x Briosa III); making Fantasia DD great great granddaughters of Temerario

Temerario's Sire Line

Temerario’s sire Adentro goes back to both bay and grey early Spanish foundation horses such as Destinado III, Celoso III, Generoso, Destinado VI, Primoroso, Destinada, Presumido, and Ramillete I.

Celoso III

Temerario's Dam Line

Temerario’s dam, Temeraria II, was sired by the military (Yeguada Militar de Cordoba) stallion Bombardino. Bombardino was sired by the pure Terry stallion Destinado II (by Americano) and was out of the bay Escalera mare Valerosa III (by the Terry stallion Hatero 1916). Temeraria II’s dam, Capitana X, goes back to early Spanish foundation horses such as Americano, Presumido, and Coronel.

Temerario V

Temeraria II was also the dam of the famous stallion Temerario V, a champion of Spain, who was imported to the U.S. by the Garrison Ranch. Thus, you will often see Temeraria II in American-bred Andalusian horse pedigrees.

Temerario V was the 1980 and 1981 National Champion Stallion, the 1987 Amateur/Owner High Point Horse, and the 1992 High Point Driving Horse in the U.S.
