Coral's Alejandro de Vez was foaled March 17, 1990. He is a deep, shimmering liver chestnut in color with flaxen tail, flawless conformation and accurate natural gait. Known as "Al", he sold himself as a 3-year old after only one ride; due not only to his beauty and super-smooth gait, but also his extremely gentle mannerism and people-loving personality.
His disposition has impressed both young and old when they've ridden him, whether they are a 10-year old or an 80-year old! Al's largo is so natural that it looks effortless and he'll cover mile after mile in the Ocala National Forest with smooth, ground-covering ease.
Coral's Alejandro de Vez is an outstanding 15.2 hand son of the legendary stallion, Coral LaCE. Coral LaCE was a Grand National Champion, Top Ten Sire an astounding thirteen times, two-time #1 Top Ten Sire, and the first horse ever honored with induction into the Paso Fino Hall of Fame. Coral LaCE was, additionally, chosen as a Foundation Sire for the North American Single-footing Horse Association (NASHA) for his many attributes.
"Alejandro's" pure Puerto Rican dam, Ibis, is a gorgeous palomino by Florida State Fino Champion El Dulce FN and is out of Blanca FN. El Dulce FN was sired by four-time Puerto Rico Island Champion, Monarca, who was a 15 hand chocolate palomino stallion with extremely accurate gait.
He closed the past century by
earning the Reserve National Largo Championship at the 1999 Paso Fino
Grand National Show, held in Perry, GA, where he competed in his first
"in gait" speed competition (Largo Race) against nine other
Paso Finos for a distance of one mile. He completed the race in flawless
gait for the entire distance with energy to spare. "Al" has
been trained and shown to all of these successes by Dianne Preiss
Collins of Weirsdale, FL.
accomplishments in the show ring have brought us many proud, exciting
and memorable moments, more importantly, his greatest accomplishment is
his proven ability as a sire. He is consistently passing his beauty,
gentle disposition and flawless gait to each of his foals. Like him,
they have good size and correct conformation, are gentle and elegant
with beautiful heads, tiny ears, and even his "trademark"
flaxen tail. They are gaiting naturally from birth and are loved by
their owners for their calm, gentle natures as well as their beauty. His
offspring are clearly identifiable, regardless of mare, and
surely there is no greater accomplishment than this for any stallion.
he is a Paso Fino by birth, "Al" is also a registered North
American Single-footing Horse. His sire, Coral LaCE, was chosen as one
of the two original Foundation Bloodline Stallions for the North
American Single-footing Horse Association (NASHA), however, this fact
did not automatically qualify "Al" for registration. NASHA is
not a send money and they'll send paper organization and "Al"
had to meet their stringent requirements and very specific criteria,
entirely on his own merit, in order to be accepted into the Registry.
