THE NEW FRENCH STALLIONS IN 2017 - Five sires under a microscope
The particularity of the Purebred Arabian bloodstock results in the fact that the stallions can stand all over the world while producing in France, thanks to artificial insemination. Among the new ones in 2017, we chose to only present the ones standing in France.
SIR BANI YAS AT THE HARAS DE THOUARS
Sir Bani Yas (Amer) will be available in live and frozen semen at the haras de Thouars in 2017. This Sheikh Khalifa bin Zayed Al Nahyan owned and bred won two Group I PA under Élisabeth Bernard’s training over the mile: Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Cup at Sandown and the Qatar International Stakes at Goodwood. He only finished third of the Qatar Arabian World Cup (Gr. I PA) and second of the Afac Coupe d’Europe des Chevaux Arabes (Gr. I PA). At Goodwood, he clearly defeated Group I PA winners Prada T (Djendel) and Mister Ginoux (Amer). Sir Bani Yas showed precocity when starting his career placing himself second in June of his 3yo year. At that age, he placed second of a Group I PA and won the Prix Chéri Bibi (Gr. II PA). He performed from 1,600 to 2,200 metres, from 3 to 6yos.

A nephew of Abu Alemarat
No need to present Sir Bani Yas’ sire, Amer. His dam is a sister to Abu Alemarat (Al Nasr), best 4yo and winner of the Triple Crown in the United Arab Emirates in 2008. Stallion at the haras de Thouars, Abu Alemarat has four black type horses out of nine runners in France. Marinella (In Chaallah), his third dam, produced Mésange Al Maury (Manganate), Group I PA placed. It is the family of Madou (Norniz), through Maderba (Djerba Oua).
KALINO, THE FIRST WINNER OF THE JEWEL CROWN AT STUD
Kalino (Kaolino) is the winner of the first edition of the Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Jewel Crown (Gr. I PA), the richest Purebred Arabian race in the world at Abu Dhabi. At 4yos, he finished second of the Qatar Derby won by Djainka des Forges (Kerbella). He then came second of the Doha Cup (Gr. I PA), two lengths from the crack Al Mourtajez (Dahess). In 2015, this Sheikh Abdullah bin Khalifa Al Thani representative won the Jewel Crown, in front of Sahabba (Nizam) and Thakif (Mahabb).

The same breeding as Bigg N Rich
Kaolino, his sire, won the Dubai Kahayla Classic (Gr. I PA). Virgule Al Maury, sire of his dam, was twice leader of the winning sires in the United States. Galaactic, Kalino’s second dam, also produced Viraac (Virgule Al Maury). She won the Texas Arabian Oaks in 2001 on the dirt of Retama Park, before finishing second of the Arabian Cup Championship Distaff Sprint Stakes (Gr. I PA) over the 1,200 metres dirt track of Delaware Park. At stud, Viraac produced Bigg N Rich (by the son of Dormane, Falina des Fabries). Bigg N Rich won the Al Maktoum Challenge Round I (Gr. I PA). He also finished third of the International Malazgirt Trophy (Gr. I PA) and second of the Mazrat Al Ruwayah (Gr. II PA).
MU'AZZAZ, EXCEPTIONNAL GENETICS
Mu'Azzaz (Amer) enters the haras du Grand Courgeon after a long racing career (28 races). His best success was in the Shadwell Dubai International Stakes (Gr. I PA) at Newbury in 2012. In which he defeated the Group I PA winners Damis (Amer) and Tzar du Paon (Dormane). He should allow various breeders to access exceptional genetics.

The origins of Mandore
Mu'Azzaz is out of a real classic breeding, the one of Amer over Mandore. His dam Massamarie (Tidjani) won three races in Qatar. She gave other good horses, like Mared Al Sahra (Amer), who won six races including the Emir’s Sword (Gr. I PA) and Metrag (Amer) winner of the Grand Prix de Sa Majesté le Roi Mohammed VI (Gr. III PA). The second dam, Margau (Manganate), is a full sister of champions like Dormane and Djendel. She produced Santhal (Djebbel) winner of six races including the Al Maktoum Challenge Round III (Gr. I PA) in Dubai. Margau is also the second dam of Assy (Amer), winner of the Emir's Sword (Gr. I PA).
SALADIN DE MONLAU BACK AT HIS BIRTH PLACE
For the 2017 breeding season, the haras de Monlau welcomes Saladin de Monlau (Dormane). This son of Dormane (Manganate) is out of the same dam as the champion Al Mamun Monlau (Munjiz). At 3yos, he won in front of the future Group I PA winner Sir Bani Yas (Amer) for his first run. For his second run, he clearly won the Shadwell Prix Tidjani (Gr. III PA). Saladin de Monlau was then absent for two years before coming back to competitions, at the highest level, but without any success.

The brother of Al Mamun Monlau
Al Mamun Monlau, for his second run, placed third of the Qatar Coupe de France des Chevaux Arabes (Gr. I PA). He confirmed in the autumn of his 3yo year by winning the Qatar Total Arabian Trophy des Poulains (Gr. I PA). At 5, he succeeds in the Dubai Kahayla Classic (Gr. I PA) before confirming in the Coupe d’Europe des Chevaux Arabes (Gr. I PA). Salalah de Monlau (Tidjani), his dam, produced four black type horses, including Al Karama Monlau (Dormane), 2nd of the Prix Nevada II (Gr. II PA), and Princesse Monlau (Munjiz), winner of the Prix Nevada II (Gr. III PA). The second dam is a Tunisian dam.
GAZWAN, A COMPLETELY OUTCROSSED PEDIGREE
Gazwan will stand at the haras de Niellans (25) for 2017. He never ran and is a brother of the very good speed mare Ghazwa (Zawam). He is a son of the leading stallion in the United States, Burning Sand, who produced TM Fred Texas, winner of the Dubai Kahayla Classic (Gr. I PA). Gazwan comes from very good origins of Dr. Al Nujaifi’s bloodstock. He has the particularity of being free of most of the most spread blood.

She foaled Ghazwa (Zawam) who won the International Malazgirt Trophy (Gr. I PA) and twice the French Arabian Breeders’ Challenge Sprint (Gr. II PA). She also finished third of the H.H. Sheikh Zayed bin Sultan Al Nahyan Cup (Gr. I PA) and of the Za’abeel International Stakes (Gr. I PA). It is the same family as the Group I PA winners in Iraq Mutee (Oreoo) and Al Yaboob (Zad Al Rakib).
