Comet Shine is a fantastic sporthorse producing Thoroughbred stallion. He is a 16.2 hand bay son of Fappiano, and is the sire of Olympic horse Couragous Comet, who also came in 2nd at Rolex! Comet Shine has sired multiple horses competing in eventing, dressage, jumpers, and hunters. He is also a Stakeswinner of over $200K.

Fappiano topped USEF's Eventing Sires list for several years. Through him you get the jumping ability that Mr. Prospector has (and the good looks!) but with an unusually sound and durable conformation, thanks in no small part to Fappiano's damsire Dr. Fager. Fappiano also won over $370K, racing 17 times over 3 years. Comet Shine's dam Hangin On A Star is by Vice Regent, who is said to add a nice temperament and a good mind. A lot of hunters have Vice Regent close up in their pedigrees.



Hangin On A Star is out of a mare by Stage Door Johnny--who is simply one of the best names to see up close in a Sport-type Thoroughbred pedigree. Stage Door Johnny gives jumping ability, good movement AND conformation, and wonderful minds. He is by Prince John, who is by Princequillo by Prince Rose, and out of a mare by the British sire Ballymoss.

Hangin On A Star's 2nd dam is by Aureole, another nice name to see close up in a pedigree, and out of a mare by Prince Chevalier, who is by Prince Rose. She is therefore linebred on Prince Rose through his two best sons. In addition, Prince Chevalier is considered to be one of THE greatest sires for steeplechasing ever. Even better, Hangin On A Star's 4th dam is by Court Martial--it's been said that Court Martial blood is "pure gold" to find in a sport bred Thoroughbred. Last but not least, Hangin On A Star raced for 4 years, had 37 starts, earned almost $450K, and has half siblings who raced from 30 to 81 times!!

Comet Shine offspring tend to have both jump and good movement, and have very cooperative and rideable personalities. They are known for being very sound and having good legs and feet.

Bloodhorse produced a report of sire durability, ranking by percentage of offspring that actually raced, and number of starts per racer. Comet Shine made the list. With industry standards being around 70%, Comet Shine was at 80.3% of offspring racing. Average number of starts per racer is 16. Comet Shine's average is 23.2. That is an almost 50% increase over the average! It's almost sad to think that making him available to sporthorse breeders could result in a decrease in his percent of offspring that race!

Comet Shine's most famous offspring so far is definitely Courageous Comet. He raced 36 times in 3 years--about once a month--and won $70K+ the HARD way. Since hooking up with Becky Holder and changing careers to eventing, he has participated in the Olympics, come in 2nd at Rolex, and gone to the World Equestrian Games. He is known for his lovely dressage movement and his catlike athleticism. He was Rood And Riddle's 2009 Thoroughbred Sporthorse Of The Year!!

Comet Shine's pedigree and offspring have made him attractive to several of the Warmblood registries. We are actively pursuing approvals with multiple registries and hope to be able to offer warmblood registration for his foals conceived this year. In addition he will be activated with PHR, AQHA, and possibly others.
