Volatis Moriarty – 2020 black colt by Marc CainTrenda (Mondriaan x Ulft x Farn)

Moriarty was born on 1st June 2020.  He is the full brother to the beautiful Malindi and is an incredibly modern, high quality colt with exceptional athletic movement.

Moriarty embodies everything we have been aiming to breed at Volatis Stud and is absolutely destined for the top of the sport. His sire Marc Cain was selected for the fabulous movement he passes onto his foals, and for his own incredible talent which is already well on the road to eventual Grand Prix success. Moriarty has been sold to Kate as her future dressage partner.


Moriarty’s sire Marc Cain stands in Germany at Gestut Sprehe. As a three year old he was the Vice-Bundeschampion, scoring 9s for type, trot and canter, and a 10 and 9.5 for the test rider. As a six year old he was selected for the World Championships at Ermelo, qualifying for the final and continues his training with the Australian international rider Simone Pearce. He was the sire of the top priced foal at the 2018 Oldenburg Elite Foal Auction (110,000 Euros) and in 2019 his oldest foal crop is presented for stallion licensing with already a Premium son approved in Redefin.

Marc Cain

Marc Cain is a son of the sensational sire Millennium who has made a massive impact on the Trakehner, Hanoverian and Oldenburg studbooks already out of a Don Primero daughter. Don Primero was a Grand Prix competitor who is best known in the UK as sire of leading sire Dimaggio.

Moriarty is the second colt we have bred out of the multi studbook graded mare Trenda. Trenda’s dam is the Keur mare Glenda, a daughter of Ulft. Ulft was a successful competition horse, and besides the great Ferro, was also the sire of several other international dressage horses. Glenda is the only full sister of the legendary KWPN stallion Ferro.
