Furioso II x Grannus
Hann – 1986 – 1.67m – chestnut

One of the world’s greatest performers. The most willing too.


For Pleasure was elected Stallion of the Century in 2003.

He combined an unrivalled sporting career with a successful stallion career, and is still appreciated today for his responsiveness, courage and respect for his offspring. His semen has become extremely rare, and his latest foals are being snapped up.
