Melpomena arrived to our place in the summer of 2015,
along with her daughter Pomera (by Pobeditel/Balaton).
The previous year, her first-born daughter Balmena (by
Balaton/Menes) was already a part of our stud, and it
was the previous owner's wish, that these three mares
had to remain together.
Melpomena is born at Tersk Stud and raised in Russia.
She was sold at the Tersk Sale in 2001 and imported to
Denmark by Stutteri Elbjerg.
In Melpomena's interesting pedigree you will find a lot
of wellknown names, like her sire Piligrim (Gips x
Postrup/Suvenir) who won several Champion titles, and
also was racing at the racetrack through three seasons.
Piligrim's sire Elite and ECHAO ** stallion Gips, who
also was at the racetrack for two seasons, was awarded
with several Champion titles and just to name a few:
All Nations Cup Champion Aachen 1991, Res.European
Champion Menton 1993, Class Winner European Championship
in 1996, and many more titles.
Melpomena's dam Mirnaja is sired by Naslednik (Nil x
Nitochka/Naseem) which was also at the racetrack and was
awarded the All USSR Champion title in 1978.
Mirnaja's dam Margaritka (Aswan x Monopolia/Priboj) was
a treasured broodmare at Tersk Stud and also she had a
racingcareer, before she was put into breeding.
Melpomena is a unique mare with a strong russian
pedigree, and it is a great pleasure that she today has
become a part of our horse team. In addition to her
pedigree, she is a fantastic and lovely mare who possess
many qualities. She has the cutest mind and is extremely
easy in everyday life and always happy and positive.
Her movements are a real russian worthy and despite she
is an older lady, she still understands how to move and
show-off with attitude and grace.
Melpomena is shown at the Danish International Show 2007
with Gold medalj and 87.00 points, and Danish National
Show 2007 with Gold medalj and 37.33 points. Melpomena
is also broken in.
From Tersk to Terndrup we welcome Melpomena ,and hope
she will bring us a couple of offspring before she will
