Breeze Bars (Imp)

AAA: A174&ApHC: 173639 | Leopard Stallion

Breeze Bars, a bay leopard, was born the 5th of May 1972. Bred by Don Hetrick Vancouver and sold to W & M Stephens of Battleground Washinton, USA. He was then sold in1973 and imported to Australia as a yearling by Bob & Sally Wearing.

Breeze Bars came from old Appaloosa lines, which were mixed with working quarter horse, sprint racers and Thoroughbreds. This made for a young stallion who produced progeny with great versatility.

He spent his early years at Shalimar Stud in Beaudesert Qld where he stood alongside ‘Lakeside Cheers’ and other imported stallions. In 1985 Wal McCall purchased Breeze Bars and he moved to the south coast of NSW.

John Hennessey of Three Star Stud purchased him at the end of 1985 where he spent the rest of his life. His fourteen years spent with Three Star Stud saw him produce such champions such as Shalimar Mr Breeze, TS Passing Breeze, TS Morning Breeze, TS Holly Breeze, TS Breeze Will Do, TS Frosty Breeze, TS Designed By Breeze, Jigadee Miss T Breeze and many more. Four of these are AAA Champions with Jigadee Miss Breeze and TS Holly Breeze achieving their Superior All Round Horse awards.

Jigadee Miss T Breeze and TS Breeze Will Do have also been awarded Overall Performance Horse of Australia. TS Designed By Breeze has been High Point English Horse of Australia. This shows the versatility produced by Breeze Bars, builder of the breed.
