Greenacres Stud


Thoroughbred Stallion : Courville



Courville (1952)  by Fair Trial out of Plouvien, by Chateau Bouscaut.

Like Furioso and Cottage Son, Courville descended from Son-in-Law and Marco, although they were, respectively, in the third and fifth remove of his pedigree.

His son Little One (1968) was a successful show jumper, and won the prestigious Hamburg show jumping Derby in 1977. Once retired from competitions, he was re-named Jasper and became one of the world's leading show jumping sires.

 Other sons of Courville who have done particularly well at stud are Notaris (1972) and Renville (1975). The success of these three is particularly impressive, given that only five of Courville's sons received a stallion licence.

His best-known descendant is Legato (1986), with whom Peter Leone won a team Silver medal at the 1996 Olympics
