LOVER'S CROSS is a 16.2H, dark bay thoroughbred stallion, born in 1983. He is by EXPLODENT by NEARCTIC out of GIRL IN LOVE by LUCKY DEBONAIR, who is a grandson of COUNT FLEET. His sire, EXPLODENT is known for passing on wonderful temperaments and jumping talent.

LOVER'S CROSS was purchased as a 2 yr old in training at the Keeneland Sales for the sum of $200,000.00. Under trainer Roger Attfield, he went on to win major Stakes Races in Canada and the USA with total earnings of $329,116. He was then retired to stud as an unblemished 6 year old.

In 1995, at the age of 12, LOVER'S CROSS came to CANAJUN BREEDERS who decided to stand him primarily as a Sporthorse sire, although thoroughbreds and racing quarter horses are also welcome.

In 1996, LOVER'S CROSS was approved for breeding with the Canadian Sporthorse Assoc. and assigned SILVER PREMIUM STATUS based on his racing career.

In 1998, Lover was approved with the Canadian Warmblood Horse Breeders Assoc. The guest inspector, Dr Gerd Lehman from the Warendorf Stud in Germany said that Lover is the exact type of thoroughbred they want in their European Studbook. Lover scored 8's for Breed and Sex Type, Correctness of Gaits, as well as Jumping & Gallop. He scored 9 for his General Impression and Development.

In 2000 LOVER'S CROSS was Reserve Grand Champion Thoroughbred at the Royal Agricultural Winter Fair. He has the qualities you look for in a sire: athletic, willing, easy to manage and beautiful. All his handlers adore him. He is the kind of stallion you wish all were like. He is quick to learn and wants to please, traits we also see in his offspring.
