SOLD! Congratulations to the new owner of this exceptional Alejandro son!
stallion is outstanding to say the least. Large, yet, refined,
Sonoval is a blend of Coral LaCE, a Grand National Champion, Hall of
Fame, 13-time Top Ten Sire, legend of the Breed and Foundation Sire of
the North American Single-footing Horse Association (NASHA) and the
great lines of Maria Luisa. She was named "Dam of Champions"
by PFOBA after her son became Twice Grand National Classic Fino
Champion, another son became a National Fino Champion and multiple
National Champion in youth classes while, yet, another son became
National Champion in Owner/Amateur.
Sonoval claims the
lines of Corito, another son of Maria Luisa and Cori. Cori was a full
brother to La Garza; dam of Puerto Rico's Cupido, a multiple Champion
and famous Paso of Puerto Rico. Sonoval's dam is a beautiful
palomino. She is a direct
daughter of Corito out of Amor de Vez. Amor de Vez was a daughter of
Cantante de Omega, a very handsome 15hand chestnut son of Res. Grand
National Performance Chamion, Singer, whose lines go back to Gaucho/Desvelo.
Sonoval's unique name
(pronounced Son- of-Al) was chosen to honor his sire, who is known as
"Al". The "de Vez" suffix was added in order to
honor and give credit to the dam and her owners. Sonoval also carries
the genes of Monarca, a 15 hand stallion, who was Puerto Rico Island
Champion four times. This stallion will enhance gait where ever he goes
and should be considered for his potential as a herd sire.
It has been said many times that "history repeats
itself" and such
may be the case where this stallion is concerned. In 1989, ten years prior
to our leasing his dam, a beautiful palomino mare of Puerto Rican
bloodlines was leased by Barbara Preiss of La Caballeriza de Vez. The
sole purpose of which was to breed the mare, Ibis, to her herd sire,
Coral LaCE. As a result of this breeding, a large chestnut colt was
foaled in 1990.
The colt was not only large, he was very gentle,
extremely refined, and had an undeniable presence about him. In honor of
his legendary sire, Coral LaCE, his home farm, the mare's owner, Alex
Ogilvie III, and to reflect his Spanish heritage, the colt was named
"Coral's Alejandro de Vez".

Catera is large, beautiful, extremely sweet, and is another example of
line-bred Coral LaCE perfection. A visitor to the farm stated that "she
gaits like a sewing machine". She is a gorgeous chestnut with a blaze
and hind stocking. Like her dam, Sirena, and full sister, L'Oreal, she
will come to you in the pasture for attention. She not only carries the

"Staci" is absolutely stunning in beauty and presence. She has no
markings; she doesn't need them! She will mature to be very large and is
already as large as her sisters even though many months younger. She is
very gentle and intelligent and is line-bred on both Coral LaCE and Monarca. Her dam is a beautiful chestnut mare by Coral de
Vez. He is a
Florida State Champion in both Performance and Pleasure with powerful rear-driving action and a sire of exceptionally gaited offspring. His dam,
Tomoka Miedosa, is a Florida State Champion Performance Mare. Monarca
was a 4-time Puerto Rican Island Champion who was 15 hands and had a
good range of extremely accurate gait. "Staci" is a deep chestnut in
color and looks like a clone of her elegant sire, Coral's Alejandro de Vez.
She has been started under saddle and is flawless in
