As the dream of Cortese Arabians was growing and evolving in the late 1990s, owners Lisa and Chris Cortese made a huge leap into the Arabian industry with the purchase in 2003 of the multi-National Champion English Pleasure stallion, Philander Bey+// from Cedar Ridge Arabians.  Philander Bey had already won US and Canadian National Champion titles in English Pleasure, Park and Informal Combination.  As a testament to his mind and trainability, he continued under the Cortese's ownership to add even more titles to his long show record, but this time being shown by amateurs and youth riders.


Due to limited breeding, Philander Bey+// has only produced 18 purebred and half-arabian foals.  But, statistics say it all - of those 18 foals (some still too young to be shown) his foals have won US and Canadian National Championship titles in English Pleasure as well as numerous Regional and Scottsdale titles in Halter, Country Pleasure and Native Costume.  Of his 11 offspring that have been shown,  they have won IABS sweepstakes points with 99.65% of those points being earned in the English Pleasure, Country Pleasure and Native Costume divisions.


What sets him apart from other Afire Bey V sons out there?  His dam - Paskina (Pask x Contina) has produced seven foals, with SIX of them winning US National titles in English Pleasure and BOTH of her sire and dam were National Champion performance producers themselves.  This strong maternal polish pedigree gives him great drive from his powerful hip, a short strong back and huge trot on all four corners.

2001 US National Reserve Champion Park Horse AAO

2001 Canadian National Champion AO Park

2000 Canadian Reserve National Champion English Pleasure AAO 18-39
