We were honored to stand Sporty at Daventry Equestrian for the last five years of his stallion career. He is tied for the record for siring the all-time Highest Selling American Hunter Pony Classic Auction pony at $75,000 US, a Half Welsh gelding named All Heart. His daughter Flower, aka Stars Go Blue, follows closely behind that record at $67,000 US. His foals have averaged as high as $31,767 US at the sales and he also holds the record for siring the most Top Sellers at the American Hunter Pony Classic Auctions. Sporty has sired multiple USEF Pony Finals Overall Grand Champions, Devon winners, Pony Hunter Futurity winners and both USEF Zone and National Pony Hunter Champions. He was also named the 2001 USEF Pony Hunter Breeding Sire of the Year and has been high on the USEF Leading Pony Hunter Sire List for well over a decade, holding the distinction of the top Canadian Stallion on the list each year.


"All Heart set the record for the highest price ever for a pony in the American Hunter Pony Classic when the gelding sold for $75,000 US at the 2005 American Hunter Pony Classic as Foxlair Fandango. Foxlair Fandango is by Penrhyn Sporting Chance out of Dance On Snow. "

He finished 3rd overall in the Large Green Pony Hunters at the 2006 USEF Pony Hunter Finals and finished 10th Nationally in the USEF Large Green Pony Hunters that same year. He has won top ribbons at Upperville, Biltmore and Middleburg.


Monroe  Photo Credit: Dennis O'Neill Photography The Sporting Chance daughter, Monroe, has won at all of the major USEF shows across the country, finishing the 2008 season as the USEF Horse of the Year National Grand Champion Green Pony Hunter. She also finished 8th Nationally in the Small Pony Hunters. Monroe attended the USEF Pony Hunter Finals and placed 3rd in the Small Green Pony Hunter Under Saddle and finished 9th overall. This fabulous little pony was the 2008 WEF Circuit Champion for the Small Green Pony Hunters.


Sporty has produced ten Virginia Pony Breeder's Association Futurity winners, including Chance of a Lifetime, who was 2001 Devon Reserve Grand Champion Crossbred Pony, and What Luck, Virginia Pony Breeder's Association Futurity Grand Champion. Sporty is also sire of the 2003 ASPR Canadian Foal Champion, Foxen Juicy Bug, aka Sporty Spice, who scored an overall 8.0 and tied with the U.S. Foal Champion that same year. Among Sporty's amazing offspring are Foxlair Poker, Misty Blue Paris, First Hand, and Redwall. Sporty has been consistently on the USEF Leading Pony Hunter Sire List each year. Due to a computer error by the USEF that spanned over four years (2004-2008), over twenty of Sporty's offspring were left off of his USEF Sire totals, resulting in top 30th placings on the list, rather than top 10 placings. We have worked with the USEF to resolve this issue since purchasing him in 2009.


Sporty is also starting to make his mark as an extremely successful pony hunter broodmare sire. His daughter, Even Money, produced the successful young pony Glenhaven Work Of Art, who was named the Best Young Pony at Upperville in 2004 and Grand Champion of the 2004 VPBA Futurity and is now a successful pony hunter. Dress Blues, out of daughter Sporty Spice, sold for $27,000 US at the 2008 American Hunter Pony Classic Auction and was the High Selling 4 year old mare.


Sporting Chance had correct conformation, amazing form over fences and was one of the few Section A Welsh Ponies to put a winning hunter under saddle trot into their foals! He consistently passed the best to his foals - excellent conformation, braveness and incredible athleticism. Sporty was very charismatic and possessed the ability to put a smile on everyone's face. He did not throw a lot of height into his foals, which made him an excellent cross on the larger Thoroughbred, Warmblood and Quarter Horse mares. Daventry Equestrian does have a reserve of Penrhyn Sporting Chance frozen semen stored and available to mare owners.
