Bio and Performance Record:
New York BC is out of one of the most well-known horses in recent show jumping history, double Gold Olympic Champion mare Sapphire who bankrolled $2.75 million during her illustrious career. After winning Olympic team gold in 2004, Sapphire and her rider, McLain Ward, earned another team gold as part of the 2005 Samsung Super League Team. In 2006 they claimed the team silver at the FEI World Equestrian Games & won the USEF National Show Jumping Championship. In 2007, Sapphire won the $300,000 CN Worldwide Florida Open GP CSI5* & was second in the Budweiser American Invitational in preparation for the FEI WC Final in Las Vegas where she won the $75,000 grand prix by more than three seconds. Her numerous wins throughout 2007 earned her the title of American Grand Prix Association (AGA) Horse of the Year.
Sapphire & McLain went back and earned another team Gold at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing & won the American Invitational and the $100,000 President’s Cup at the Washington Internat’l Horse Show. In 2009 they won three six-figure wins at WEF highlighted by the $400,000 FTI Finale GP win. She delivered an incredible five clear rounds to place second at the 2009 Rolex FEI World Cup Finals and earned her second win at Devon. After picking up two wins at the Hampton Classic, she won the $1 million CN International GP, beating reigning Olympic champ, Hickstead, by 3/100ths of a second in a jump-off for the ages. In 2010 she added wins at the Pfizer $1 Million GP in Saugerties, New York, the Longines Grand Prix of La Baule(France), the GP of Rome and again at the President’s Cup. She was long listed for the 2012 Olympics prior to her retirement.
New York’s sire, Presley Boy, was a super star as well and highly regarded in the show jumping community competing successfully on the international stage for several years under the Mexican rider Jamie Azcarraga winning at Calgary, Arezzo and Monterrey before being sold for 7million euros and joining Saudi Equestrian. Presley Boy continued to excel under Khaled Al Eid successfully competing in the 2010 WEG followed by winning the 1.60m 5*GP of Gijon. In 2011, Al Eid and Presley Boy finished in second place in the Global Champions Tour CSI5* Finals Grand Prix & third in the CSI4* WC Olympic Games Qualifier. He won team Gold at the Asian Games and individual Bronze. The last victory for the stallion was in September 2011 at Spruce Meadows.
New York BC had his first offspring in 2016, both claiming 2nd place for colts and fillies for BWP/North America with their beautiful conformation and elastic movement.
