|16.1 hh Bay Stallion
To educate breeders here in the US a bit, the BEF Futurity series in the UK is far more advanced than anything we have
in North America.
In 2009: "After 12 evaluations which took place across the whole of the UK and in which 315 young Event horses from
foals to 3 years old were assessed for potential to be the Elite prospects, Future Illusion has emerged as the No.1 Sire of
Eventers.... The rankings are based on the average of the top 3 scores of their youngstock. A futher average across all
progeny scores is also published. The average across the top 3 scores indicates the quality of their best horses, whereas
the average across all progeny indicates the average standard of all their stock. Not only did Future Illusion have the
highest quality eventers, with his top 3 scores averaging as Elite, but his average across all scores is an extremely high 1st
premium score of 85.4%. These statistics show that not only does Future Illusion produce horses with the potential to go
to very top, but that he is also incredibly consistent in the quality that he produces...In addition to being the top ranked
sire of Eventers he is also the Highest Ranked British Bred Stallion across ALL Disciplines, being 3rd overall from
76 stallions from across the UK and Europe with scores only marginally behind a German Dressage sire and a
KWPN Showjumping sire. "
This is quite a remarkable achievement, along the lines of what you see in the US on the USEF Leading Sires list, where
hundreds of horses are competing, not an equivalent to our fledgling Future Event Horse series (although we can hope
this series will someday reach a level close to that in the UK). Best British Bred Sire in 2009 and 2010, and No. 1 ranked
Eventing Sire in 2009 and No. 2 ranked Eventing Sire in 2010.
Future Illusion's show results
Due to a busy breeding schedule, he has been competed lightly. In 2010, he made it to 9 horse trials with rider Jeanette
Brakewell. Through the end of 2010, he had NO cross country jumping penalties, and ended the year competing at BE100
level. He had three BE90 level competitions (HC due to the riders overqualification for that level) and 6 BE100 runs. He
placed 11th or higher in five of these BE100 runs; the goal was to focus on rideability and building a base from which to
move up the levels, rather than winning at lower levels, so he occasionally had time penalties that kept him out of the top
spots. They hope to begin moving him up the levels in 2011, although they will not push him. He is both a breeding stallion
and a competition horse, and they will do what is best for the horse. If he ends up too busy breeding again and is unable
to move up as much as anticipated, so be it. His first crops will begin competing soon, which will be very exciting!
The Vital Statistics
Future Illusion is an athletic bay stallion with an exquisite head and no white markings. He has demonstrated his versatility
by winning in the show ring as a foal, yearling, 2 year old and 4 year old across a wide variety of classes. He scored the
with an amazing 9.1 out of 10.
His bloodlines are exceptional - he is by the ELITE stallion & Double European Junior Eventing Gold Medallist Fleetwater
Opposition, out of the HEAD Stud Book, Champion Sporthorse and Champion Hunter broodmare Future Illicit Affair.
Fleetwater Opposition's legacy lives on through his offspring - he sired the 1st AND 2nd place horses in the 2007 4 Year
Old PAVO BE Breeding Championships which was an encore to siring the 5 & 6 Year Old Winners in 2003 and 2004! With
the addition of top class National Hunt breeding in his motherline, which descends from the legendary Spiritus, Future
Illusion is already proving to be an exceptional sire of athletes.
