BYALEE SALAO IX (IMP)
Service Fee: $1500 inc. GST
Salao IX is literally just off the plane, the latest of the Auction of the Stars stallions, and we are sure he is headed for a big future. Holding a Spanish passport, classified with ANCCE and already APTO registered and graded, Salao offers the most royal of Spanish bloodlines from the Yeguada Militar (Royal stud) and his pedigree is dotted with APTO and Calificado approved and elite stallions - his blood is the bluest of blue! Standing at 17hh at 4yo, Salao was registered and graded prior to his arrival in Australia. Whilst still maturing under saddle, Salao shows a generous overtrack in the walk, a ground-covering uphill canter and a scopey trot that promises much for the future - and on top of that, Salao has an amazing temperament that sees him described as a teddybear! Salao's grandsire Ermitano III is the first Spanish stallion (one of only two ever) to be both elite and improver breeding classified, an accolade awarded on the basis of the genetic assessment of his descendants on a Global Genetic Index. Legendary dam sire Obcecado, also from Yeguada Militar (the Royal Stud), was three times Andalusian champion in Spain while his famous sire Bizarra VI also sired 2004 Olympian silver medallist Oleaje as well as many Calificado sires, while Oleaje in turn went on to sire champion stallion Habanero, who stands at stud in the US. Yeguada Militar bloodlines are some of the most sought-after in the world and we are expecting great contributions to our gene pool in terms of piaffe and passage from Salao - watch this space!
