Arabian Horse Times and Jeff Wallace European Summer Tour of 2015
Kahil Al Shaqab
(Marwan Al Shaqab to Ruminaja Ali and Fame VF+ by Bey Shah+ and to Aza Destiny x OFW Mishaal to Bey Shah+ to *Bask++ and *Eukaliptus with a double *Bask++ to *Gwalior+++ and Habina++ tail female line) Bred and Owned by Al Shaqab Breeding and Show – Member Qatar Foundation – Foaled in 2008
Twice A World Champion Stallion in Paris
Kahil, departing his quarantine station in America, within a couple of days, will land in the hands of David Boggs and Team Midwest – Scottsdale Arizona, where breedings are already being offered along with special presentations of the stallion.
Kahil Al Shaqab is a magnificent breeding stallion – as he should be. His time spent as a young sire inside the State Studs of Poland, created a world-wide buzz second to none. Son and daughter, Morion and Pustynia Kahila, both bred by Michalow Stud, set Paris on fire and their sire ablaze, in late 2014, with Silver and Gold World Championship titles, respectively. Yet it was the beautiful and delicate bay Minwah, in 2013, from Aljassimya, that garnered the first World Champion title for a then very young Kahil Al Shaqab – and there are many more to come.
In Menton this year the Silver Champion Yearling Filly was a daughter of Kahil Al Shaqab bred and owned by Dubai Stud.
The results from this year’s Bialka Spring Show were nothing but a tribute to the siring abilities of Kahil, who like his grandsire Gazal Al Shaqab, carries a powerful Polish tail female line to the blood of Witraz, sire of *Bask++ and Ellora, which allows stallions such as Gazal and Kahil, the ability to tap right into the genetic make-up of the mares inside Poland.
What a magical web of success this young super-sire is already weaving in the most successful of ways.
