Falah Al Shaqab, born 2013, chestnut, Breeder and Owner: Al Shaqab Stud.
His pedigree: WorldChampion Fadi Al Shaqab (Besson Carol x Abha Myra) out of the mare Joseph Just Emotion (WH Justice x Avalon Troyka). Michael Byatt about Fadi Al Shaqab: Perfect balance, extreme smoothness, and an idealistic Arabian type, Fadi Al Shaqab is nothing less than a stunning display to all that encounter him.
Born at Michael Byatt Arabians, U.S.A., to a unique lineage that represents some of the most significant international bloodlines in the history of breeding and show horses, Fadi Al Shaqab embodies the greatness of his extraordinary pedigree. He is a portrait of Arabian refinement and elegance. Fadi Al Shaqab exudes the stunning features of his legendary grandsire, the Qatari-bred and born Marwan Al Shaqab.”
Falah Al Shaqab has it all!
And he is combining two of the recently most influential lines: Padrons Psyche and Gazal Al Shaqab. When it comes to Gazal Al Shaqab we talk about a really “Living Legend”. Words cannot better express as Michael Byatt has done it like: Gazal Al Shaqab is a World Champion as well as a sire and grandsire of World Champions, including Marwan Al Shaqab. A stallion of great type, balance and quality, he was selected for a breeding lease by the historic Polish studs Janów Podlaski and Michalów where he produced multiple champions, including the two World Champions, Pianissima and Emandoria. Standing at Michael Byatt Arabians in the United States he has continued his tradition of producing exceptional sons and daughters.
Representing a thoughtful blend of Egyptian, Polish, Russian and American bloodlines, Gazal Al Shaqab is a son of the beautiful straight Egyptian champion, Anaza El Farid. Kajora, his dam, was a truly unforgettable mare. Named a U.S. Champion mare before she was acquired by Al Shaqab, her sire Kaborr was a U.S. Reserve National Champion and her dam, Edjora, was a pure Polish mare from the lauded “E” dynasty. Gazal Al Shaqab’s pedigree reflects many of the most celebrated Arabian sires and dams in modern history, including Ruminaja Ali, *Naborr, *Ansata Ibn Halima, *Exelsjor, Bint Deena and Bint Kholameh.”

We say a special thank you to Christine Jamar, Jadem Arabians/Belgium, and her well organized Stallion Festival on the 5th March 2017. We followed the footsteps of Falah Al Shaqab since we got aware of him with his show successes in the US. When he touched European soil and was shown successfully in Europe at the All Nations Cup, the European Championship in Belgium and the WorldChampionship 2016 in Paris we thought often about him to use him in our small breeding program. At Christine Jamar’s place we saw the chance to win a breeding of him in the auction. The breeding of Falah Al Shaqab was the last stallion to bid for … and we were successful! We are so happy that we can now use him and will work together with Paolo Capecci for the shipment of the semen. The mare of choice is our powerful and important breeding mare Jade A, the first foal and filly by Aja Justified, Triple Crown Winner 2010.
