For The Record - Sire Clarified



Nirvana’s Teen Spirit, the recently crowned Junior Exhibitor Three-Gaited Show Pleasure Grand Champion with Ava Stachowski at Rock Creek, was bred by Ava and her mom Shawn and is sired by 2014 Fine Harness World’s Grand Champion and 2016 Fine Harness Stallion/Gelding World’s Champion Nutcracker’s Nirvana.

Teen Spirit and Ava were the 2016 Junior Park Pleasure Reserve World’s Champions and they kicked off the 2017 show season at River Ridge Charity.

Stachowski Farms had a great show at Rock Creek. In addition to Ava and Nirvana’s Teen Spirit’s tricolor victory pass, Jim Stachowski won the UPHA Park Pleasure Classic with the Nutracker’s Nirvana-sired Nordavano (out of Kalarama’s Macbeth). He also rode Ro & Me’s Galaxy Girl to win the Park Pleasure Stake in a single appearance.
