Legacy was bred on Bloomfield station by the Haydon family and is descended from Tester, the sire of the famous Waler Midnight, killed in the Charge of Beersheba. (Click here for more information on the history of the Haydon horses) Destiny Bay was from the Jewel Family.
Unfortunately due to injury Legacy wasn’t extensively competed but was an exceptionally comfortable horse to ride and his progeny are doing well in all disciplines.
Haydon Dancer (AUS) – HSH (above) is by Nabinabah Breezette’s full brother Belltrees Musket who was by Nabinabah The Gun, and from the Thora Family broodmare Haydon Ballerina who combines Sundown, Young Valais, Bobbed Steel and Starlight blood.
Dancer was an outstanding versatile performance stallion, winner of 1993Widgee Futurity, Champion Working Stallion at Dalby in 1995, hi-point awards in working, led, campdrafting, hacking and dressage. In 1997 he won 8 Supremes, 24 Champions and 38 firsts in ridden, led and hacking classes and in his first dressage competition he received the highest score of the day. He was winner of the prestigious Nat Buchanan Trophy in 1997, awarded for the best stock horse in Australia for that year.
Haydon Dancer has 65 registered progeny in Australia and his semen has been used overseas. Many have been successful including Rumba and Mirage, who were among the best of their group at young horse chukkas. Dancing Lass (Pavlova) won in the show ring six months after being started and has amassed a large collection of ribbons.
