As soon as a foal is born, we are delighted when both mare and foal are healthy and sound. If the foal develops well, so do our expectations for its future. And if the horse fulfils these expectations, then this is the best endorsement for a stud. So we are particularly proud of Hasenacher Jack Sparrow. This gelding is out of Jessie´s Muppets, one of our own broodmares at Hasenacher Stud, and was born in 2008. Under his rider, three times Team Olympic Eventing Gold Medal winner, Andrew Hoy, Hasenacher Jack Sparrow has really impressed with his talent, diligence and performance.
“Hasenacher Jack Sparrow is a real Gentleman, he has got the most wonderful character and personality – but at the same time he is a real fighter who always applies himself 100%, every single day!”, states Andrew Hoy. “From our first international starts in the 2015 season, where he had a great debut at 1* level to his first starts at 3* level in 2017 – he never stopped to amaze me. His ability to focus on his job, apply everything to what is asked of him is second to none. He is an exceptional horse with an extraordinary attitude.”
Hasenacher Jack Sparrow stepped up to 3* level in 2017, where he had 3 starts and 3 fabulous clear cross country rounds – a great record for a “first timer” at this level.
