WIND FORTUNE, by Denise Hearst
The great combination of *Bask and Crabbet blood proved to be a winning combination for this amazing stallion.  Unfortunately due to an early leg injury followed by founder Wind Fortune was the end of his show career.  Wind Fortune enjoyed poopularity as a sire because of his sheer beauty and his ability to pass along to his 145 offspring the best of his qualities (30% of those 145  are champions).  Wind Fortune known for that incredible neck, huge eye and beautiful topline.
