Artrageous is by the Eclipse award champion (1999) and track record setting sprinter Artax out of the accomplished Alysheba mare Treize. Trieze is the dam of Brancusi, who was 2nd in the Bluegrass Stakes (G1) before running in the Kentucky Derby in 2003. His granddam, Treizieme, was an outstanding turf mare winning G1 turf races in France and produced stakes winning foals herself.
"Arty" is a bay minimal sabino (white lower lip, white in his tail, scattered white hairs throughout coat) and has two famous sabino stallions in his pedigree as well: Marquetry (his grandsire on his sire's side) who won over 2.8 million on the track and The Minstrel (his great grandsire on his dam's side) who won over half a million on the track.
Believe it or not, "Arty" was in danger of going to an auction with the possibility of being sold to slaughter after being improperly cared for at the track. We'd like to thank Elizabeth Wood of Bits & Bytes Farm for putting the word out on this boy and helping us bring him home.
We just love this stallion and cannot say enough about him. He has an excellent disposition and is pastured with his "harem" of mares. As he is basically "bombproof" we use him to pony youngsters and he is a quiet leader for them.
Arty has done a bit of eventing and has done quite well. He is a fabulous jumper with a ton of scope and has an excellent free shoulder. He has also been foxhunting and is an excellent hunt horse. A true Amateur's dream, he is very easy to ride and train and has an excellent work ethic. He loves ALL his jobs!
Arty has consistently stamped his foals with his gorgeous head and great disposition so far and we are anxious to see how they mature!
