A Sky Full Of Stars

As the air got cooler on Friday afternoon the senior mares had their moment and you should not missed it. All those awesome beauties just like a sky full of stars and arguably the most beautiful was Norma!

Not astronomers have discovered the brightest star but an international panel of judges gave the flea-bitten, bold moving Norma the highest score (94,2 points). The Michalow bred, 13-years-old Gazal Al Shaqab daughter Norma out of Nina by Monogramm was also elected PSAIAHF Gold Champion Senior Mare. Congratulations to the proud owner Al Muawd Stud, KSA.

All in all it was an incredible show for Al Muawd Stud. When their bay stallion Emerald J stormed into the arena and presented himself in the most spectacular way the Gold Champion Senior Stallion title was well deserved. Emerald J is exclusively bred, an aristocratic son of QR Marc out of royalty Emandoria, another stunning grey sired by Gazal Al Shaqab. With his seven years of age, Emerald J himself is the sire of the latest European Triple Crown winner, Gallardo J, proudly owned by Ajman Stud.

Emerald J’s bay daughter Badawia Al Muawd out of Mistilll Al Muawd received Silver Champion Yearling Fillies, bested by the lovely Ghadeer AM, also owned by Ajman Stud. Ghadeer AM’s sire is AJ Mardan from the strong male line of Vervaldee and Versace. Born in 2011, AJ Mardan has already produced at a very young age the 2015 European Triple Crown Winner AJ Azzam out of Ysadora by Marwan Al Shaqab.

The warm glow of success did not stop for Al Muawd Stud. Emerald J also sired the Gold Champion Yearling Colts, General out of E.S. Mahbuba while the dark bay Mayar Iv by Kanz Al Bidayer was named Gold Champion Junior Filly and received the highest score of all fillies (92,7 points).

Ravishing show charisma is a trait, which Gold Champion Junior Colt EOS Apollo has inherited from his supreme sire Lawrence El Gazal. Born in Germany out of Announ El Wuotan, the bay two-years-old EOS Apollo is proudly owned by Faisal I Alibrahim.

A sky full of stars is such a heavenly view and so is this phalanx of champion horses.
