His Progeny:

In a very short time frame Amoureux has proven to be a progenitor of his own strengths and positive attributes, an opinion shared by many National and Overseas judges, breeders and mare owners. Due to his genetic make up being homozygous black, Amoureux cannot produce chestnut foals.

The worthiness of any sire can only ever be proven by the quality and success of his progeny. He has consistently sired Champion Prize Winning and high scoring Premium progeny. His oldest progeny have commenced under saddle with excellent results.

His first foals demonstrate clearly that he adds expression, suppleness and athleticism, he refines the head, adding length to neck and limb, raising the forehand. He produces light footed foals with excellent use of the foreleg, frequently adding length of stride often in all three paces, most have shown to inherit his exceptional canter a characteristic inherited from the great Ramiro Z.
