"ALLIGATOR FONTAINE corresponds particularly well to sporty mares of an average size, type SF, AA, or KWPN requiring a stallion with lots of " RAYON ". Some of his larger foals, like him, can be late developers and deserve that you take your time. Dont forget that ALLIGATOR and his younger brother FRASCATOR were late bloomers but have both gone on to become International Champions.
The pedigree of ALLIGATOR FONTAINE goes off the well trodden path, allowing a new and richer genetic choice for producing sporthorses, as he is completely free of the blood of ALME, Uriel or Grand Veneur and brings the precious bloodlines of Mourne and Nasrullah."
