Future Illusion is Licensed by the Anglo European Studbook (AES). He Evented in 2010 ridden Olympic medallist Janette Brakewell who says: “Future Illusion is a pleasure to work with. He has a very trainable brain, is increadibly rideable and is already showing real ability both on the flat and over fences. He’s a natural cross country horse and I’m very much enjoying competing him.” He had a spotless cross country jumping record showing his boldness and positive attitude, and had top 11 placings in the majority of his runs.
Future Illusion will be combining his training schedule with stud duties. His first few seasons at stud have been increadibly successful attracting a large book of high quality mares, including CCI**** and Advanced event mares, as well as top showing mares. He has sired a filly foal out of the dam of the Pan Am Games Gold Medalist Theodore O’Connor ridden by Karen O’Connor in the USA in 2012. Both his semen and young stock are in demand worldwide both being exported abroad.
