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.

Coral's Alejandro de Vez - the gait to your future!"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.

In September 2000, "Al" gaited his way to victory, under Dianne Preiss Collins, at the 28th Paso Fino Grand National Championship Show where he, again, competed in the Largo Race before an arena packed with cheering fans. He covered the one-mile distance in smooth, flowing style, never missing a beat of gait, and crossed the finish line first out of a field of eight that included the previous year's winner.

While "Al's" 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.

His son, Alejandro's Reno de Mayo, trained and presented by his owner, Dr. Deborah Ramsey of Rockport, MA, amazed spectators with his beauty, superb gait, gentleness and willing attitude when, as only a yearling, he performed a Bella Forma exhibition at the Massachusetts Equine Exposition in Northampton, MA.  Although "Reno" had never been away from home before, he was completely undaunted by the strange surroundings and noises at the bustling all-breed event. Handled by his owner, the vibrant chestnut colt demonstrated his flawless natural gait and exceptional conformation throughout the weekend-long exposition. For an encore, "Reno" earned 88 show points in Bella Forma (conformation & gait) a few months later when shown by Dr. Ramsey at two Northeast Regional Paso Fino Shows. Fondly referred to as "Big Boy Reno", this special son is living up to his nickname as he stands 15 hands at only two and a half years old.

Although 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.
