Sired by the legendary Waseeka’s Showtime and out of WRA Georgeanna, by Downer Hill Chapee, Chardonnay enjoyed a successful career as a Pleasure Driving horse before entering the broodmare ranks. Sold as a two year old, she was the Pleasure Driving Reserve Champion at the Dixie Cup Classic and was third in a competitive Classic Pleasure Driving 4 Year Old class at the 1995 Grand National & World Championship Morgan Horse Show.

We recently reacquired Chardonnay after Willowick Farm closed down their breeding program, and we are very happy with her first Cherrydale prefixed foal, a big, colorful gelding named Mardi Gras.

She has produced several wonderful foals, including:

  • Willowick Angel Girl (by Futurity’s First Edition), 1997 mare
  • Willowick Will To Wynne (by Duke of Wynne), 1998 gelding, a Reserve Grand National Champion in Classic Pleasure Driving Masters, a Grand National Champion in Junior Exhibitor Park Harness and a Reserve Grand National Champion in Four Yr Old Pleasure Driving
  • Her Highness Ms Zinfandel (by Futurity High Honor), 1999 mare, a Regional Champion in Pleasure Driving and a Champion in Western Pleasure Masters
  • Willowick Southern Style (by Cedar CreekHarlequin), 2002 gelding, a Regional Champion in Hunter Pleasure Junior Horse
  • Willowick Center Stage (by Hollybrook Stage Rage), 2003 mare, a Reserve Grand National Champion in Ladies Classic Pleasure Driving, Two Yr Old Pleasure Driving and Four Yr Old Mares In Hand
  • Willowick Mafia Princess (by The Last Don), 2004 mare, a Grand National Champion in Junior Exhibitor Pleasure Driving and Reserve World Champion in Walk/Trot English Pleasure
  • Willowick Summer Wind (by Hollybrook Stage Rage), 2006 mare
  • Willowick Class And Sass (by ZZ Top), 2007 mare
  • Cherrydale Mardi Gras (by Stonecroft Masquerade), 2013 gelding
