Hilltop Farm Acquires Devon Grand Champion

"Jane MacElree and Hilltop Farm are excited to announce they have purchased the 2009 Dressage at Devon Grand Champion Perfect Qredit (Quaterback-Dream of Glory)

from Michelle and Chris Coursin. Michelle had purchased Qredit from his breeder, Judy Yancey, as a young foal and sent him to Hilltop Farm after weaning. In 2009 Qredit had an undefeated show season that included Grand Championships at Fair Hill, Stone Tavern, and culminated in the Grand Championship at Devon. “Qredit has impressed us since his arrival at Hilltop and we are very happy that the Coursin’s have finally agreed to sell him to us,” says Jane MacElree.

A third-generation offspring from Judy Yancey’s breeding program, Qredit descends from her imported foundation mare Helena. “Qredit will offer new lines for our breeding program,” says Natalie DiBerardinis, Hilltop Farm’s Breeding Manager. “We are very excited to have the opportunity to continue to develop this special young colt and look forward to many milestones with him in the coming years.” (February 2010)"
