Hicks Stables Celebrates The New Year With Sales



Rodney and Janet Hicks announced several sales to start off the new year. Their Pittsfield, Mass., Hackney training facility is the home of new prospects and veteran teams that will return to the ring in the spring.

Among the sales, Ed Ochsenschlager has a new two-year-old gelding named X-treme Commander. This top harness pony prospect is by X-Treme, out of Truly An Elegant Rose. Another top prospect is a bold, bay colt by Mark Of Excellence that is owned by High Gait Farm. That colt’s name is High Gait Remarkable.

Copper Beech LLC has several exciting prospects for 2010. X-tremely A Dream Girl (X-treme x Confetti) is a promising junior harness pony and will debut this spring. Her stablemate, Extremely Invincible (The Extremist x Prophecy) will be shown in the junior Hackney division. CB Thriller is a chiseled yearling colt living up to his name.

Kathy and Wayne Comeau surprised their granddaughters, Mariah and Gabrielle Comeau, with a three-year-old pleasure driving pony by Truly Unique, out of Dun-Haven Grand Entrance, named Truly A Sport. Mariah and Gabrielle have been following their grandmother and her World’s Champion Of Champions Truly Naughty By Nature, and they have decided they want to show a pony as well.

A family friend of the Comeaus, Donna White purchased the three-year-old prospect Red Sox Nation from Rodney and Janet Hicks. Red Sox Nation will remain in training at Hicks Stables. To round out the sports theme, Hicks Stables will debut Fenway (Coachlight’s Dream x Extremely A True Spirit) in the three-year-old harness pony division this year.

Reserve World’s Champions Exhilarating and Heartland Riverdance will return for this season. Marjorie Kenney closed out 2009 with a Ladies Hackney win and Reserve Canadian National Hackney Championship with Exhilarating. Heartland Riverdance and Joe Harrod will continue their winning ways in the juvenile road pony division. Joe’s mom, Sue Harrod, will be debuting her first pony this season. She will be teamed with Unique’s Creation in the long-tail division.
