Jace Miharo x Dutchboy AEA (x Dutchman AEA). It is said that Dutchman AEA came very close to being the ideal riding horse. "His head shows character and is full of expression and masculinity. His movement is elastic and floating with a lot of cadence. Jumping he shows a good technique and has great scope over big fences.
Dutchman is one of 31 stallions selected out of 750 to participate in a 100 day performance test in 1988. Dutchman won the Geelong Showjumping Club’s high jump competition in 1993 and has successfully competed in dressage. Winner of the 1998 Coprice Free Jumping Challenge (1.90m)." While Dutchman was a showjumper, Dutchboy II AEA was solely ridden in dressage with excellent results.

Petticoat Lanes mare Jace Miharo descends from the F/W line through her dam Tuxedo Rose, who is by Wohler II. Jace Miharo is the dam of the talented Show-jumping mare Cross Your Heart.

Dutchboy II AEA sire, Dutchman produced three AWHA approved stallions and some outstanding offspring:
AEA Dutch Lorel (1993) Lorel was Champion all round Warmblood Horse at the 1998 and 1999 AWHA Gala Weekends. She is now B grade showjumping and came second to Jeff Bloomfield at the 2002 Australian Showjumping Championships. She has progeny by Ahorn, Just de Pomme and Indoctro (all via embryo transfer).

Dutchman's sire was Le Mexico, the full brother of Furioso II. Mexico served in the French National Stud where he became the sire of showjumpers like Rambouillet (Grand Prix, Vienna), Rush du Camp (Olympic Games, Mexico City) and Jexico du Parc (Olympic Games, Los Angeles). By 1996, after his thirteenth season at stud, Le Mexico was upgraded by the KWPN executive committee as a ‘keurhengst’. That title means an important step on the road towards an outstanding breeding career. After the first approval, judged on conformation and movement in hand, Dutch stallions have to fulfil the performance test. After successfully completing the performance test they are transferred into the ‘real’ studbook. But shortly after his upgrade he suffered a bout of colic and died. In the year of his death, the first edition of the breeding values was printed and Le Mexico ranked with 146 points in the jumping section alongside such famous performance sires as Nimmerdor, Abgar xx, Exkurs xx, Lucky Boy xx, Farn and Notaris. Le Mexico produced not only breeding stock – there are international showjumpers and dressage competitors for example, Alanda (ridden by Peter Kersten), Bollvorm’s Red Boy (Roelof Bril) and Mexican (Tineke Bartels).
