Not Registered


Surely the greatest Stonewall King of them all and an absolute proof that blood does tell!. He only had 139 registered get, but even today still has the highest % Kentucky State Fair broodmares, namely 28%. That means that almost 1/3 of all his mare foals bred a KSF Champion or Reserve Champion! Quite an achievement! 

Four of the greatest modern sires namely Harlem Globetrotter ( New Yorker x Putting On Airs), Sultan's Great Day (Supreme Sultan x Supreme's Cassindra), Supreme Heir (Supreme Sultan x Supreme Airs) and Foxfire's Prophet  (Radiant Sultan x Supreme Airs) all boast with Stonewall  Supreme blood from their dam's side

When owned by Mr. B.P. Eddy of New Orleans, Louisiana he won major five gaited championships all over the south.

Stonewall Supreme was bought in 1950  by George Hess of Butler, Pennsylvania for $6000.  Mr. Hess went on showing him and subsequently several championships were won by this team.

He was the sire of many show and breeding horses eg:

Supreme Aire, Penny Stonewall, Stonewall Parfait, Brenda Supreme, Genius Co-Ed, Stonewall Crescendo, Dixie Duchess, Browncrest Miracle, Supreme Desdemona, Stonewall's Sound of Music, Stonewall Starfire etc. 

Stonewall Supreme was by far the best stallion son of Stonewall King. He produced offspring better than himself. He was also a top show horse, but compared with his breeding success that appears pale. He was one of the major breed builders of the American Saddlebred.

His breeding career spanned over 27 years but he only sired 139 registered horses. An average of only five per year. Despite this he was No. 1 sire in the sire rating of Saddle and Bridle Magazine in 1969. Seven years previously he was consistent in the top 5. Twice he was second to Wing Commander and in 1979 was second to Vanity's Sensation of Crebilly.

Stonewall Supreme died at the age of 30 years on 6 December 1971.

In South Africa we have these bloodlines , through one of his sons, Stonewall Starfire (Stonewall Supreme x Fairy Darling).

The offspring of Mr USA ( Stonewall Starfire x Grey Tango ) was prolific breeders, with especially one son and a grandson being the most successful.  The son is Yokozuna (by Cameo's Truly Fair  ( x Cameo's Farewell). The grandson being Stonewall's Sportsman (United States x  Sylvia Stonewall).

The USA is very lucky to have another  grandson (SA) Tornaado (Yokozuna x Sarah Lee) in their midst (SA) Tornaado (standing at KALARAMA) is already showing his siring potential by having sired two 2001 KSF ribbon winners in the Two Year Fine Harness Futurity namely, Dancing Up A Storm (by BelleO'Shea (x Lord O'Shea) and Tornaado's Tidal Wave (by Octopussy  ( x Harlem Globetrotter)

Luckily in South Africa we still have a  (SA)Tornaado son, Perfect Timing  [ (SA) Tornaado x Sun Queen], whose breeding career has just started and should be just as successful as his ancestors before him.
