Like Father, Like Son -- Judgement Call Follows in Sire’s Winning Footsteps

Coatesville, PA— While Judgement ISF has been known primarily for his

own performance career, including winning the $1,000,000 CN

International at Spruce Meadows, his offspring are also starting to

show their true colors. In 2007, several of Judgement’s offspring

brought home big awards. Judgement’s tobiano pinto son Judgement Call

took the championship for Best Performance and Reserve Champion for

Type at the International Jumper Futurity Finals Eastern Regional, held

at the Duke Children’s Hospital Benefit in Raleigh, N.C. Judgement

Call’s victory was a like father, like son moment, as Judgement ISF was

the winner of the International Jumper Futurity Midwest Regionals in


“We’ve always been proud of Judgement’s accomplishments and now

Judgement Call is following in his father’s footsteps,” said Mary Alice

Malone, owner of Iron Spring Farm. “It is wonderful to see the next

generation of American-bred horses becoming so successful.”

Grand Prix rider Laurie Jakubauskas of Kennett Square, Pennsylvania,

was aboard the four-year-old Judgement Call for the competition in

North Carolina. He was bred by Nellie and Bobby Cox of Rose Retreat

Farm in Goochland, Virginia. The Cox family primarily breeds

racehorses, but they also produce show hunters and jumpers. In 2002,

they bred a pinto mare named “Pinto Bean” to Judgement and in April

2003, Judgement Call was born. The colt was sold as a weanling to

Elizabeth Lukes who lives in Wake Forest, North Carolina. Lukes paired

Judgement Call with Jakubauskas for training.

Another Judgement son, Artesian, has also been collecting the big

prizes. The two-year-old colt, owned by DG Bar Ranch in California and

bred by Natalie Bryant, claimed the Region VII Great American/USDF Two

Year Old Colt/Gelding Championship with 83.90%. Artesian also finished

second in the KWPN-NA Jumper Two Year Old Colts/Gelding Final Five


Judgement ISF has represented the US at the WEG and on 10 Nations Cup

Teams. His lifetime earnings exceed $1.5 million.
