SOLD GrandView Keep A Secret (IFS)

Posted on Nov 22, 2017 in Progeny

Keno is a buckskin warmblood colt by Kambarbay (IFS) out of an SOS (imp)/Winterkoenig (imp)/ Kilof McOhl (imp) mare. Mature approx. 15.2-15.3hh.

Kambarbay is a perlino Akhal Teke, who is consistently producing beautiful foals. This colt is absolutely no exception.

Kambarbay possesses all of the desirable characteristics of the modern sport horse, three very good paces, well defined limbs, nicely proportioned length of body and neck, beautiful head and a metallic golden sheen to his coat for which the breed is also renown.

The Akhal Teke horses as a breed are infamous for their great stamina, speed, agility and bravery; the characteristics very much sought after for the eventing and endurance horse

Kambarbay progeny owners have remarked upon their foals abundant stamina and energy, with many commenting on a special aptitude to collect and extend within the gaits, especially in canter coupled with ability to gallop, halt and turn with remarkable ease. They are exceptionally light footed and show good mechanics.

Whilst the Akhal Teke appear to be light of bone, it is in fact exceptionally dense, designed to cover hard ground at high speed without sustaining injury. The Akhal Teke are renowned for not suffering soundness issues with exceptionally strong tendons and hardy hooves that require little maintenance.

Keno’s dam is by SOS (imp) who is by Semper, and carries the bloodlines of Samber and Sandro.

Sandro has produced both exceptional dressage and jumping horses. Sandro himself was one of the best jumping horses of his time in Europe. SOS’s dam is Pandorra who is by Prinz Oldenburg and is arguably one of Europe’s finest showjumping sires. Prinz Oldenburg was the most famous son of Picasso. Pandorra also carries the strong and versatile eventing talents of Ramiro Z and the remarkable ability of dressage sire Pik Bube I.

On the dam line, Keno’s dam is by Winterkoenig who was imported to Australia in 1983 by Holger and Melanie Schmorl. Winterkoenig carries the influential lines of Woermann, Pik Koenig and Fluegeladjutant.

Kilof McOhl was imported in 1976 by Gert and Mary Donvig. Lucinda Green rode him around the Gawler 3DE in the Intermediate in 1982, finishing 9th after being way in front after dressage on a score of 45.2.

Mary Donvig (now Hanna) starred with Kilof McOhl at Prix St Georges level in the Haig Cup. Gert also amazed crowds at Melbourne Royal, riding Kilof in just the spotlights circle of light in an otherwise pitch black arena.

Keno has the bloodlines to make an exceptional performance horse for whatever discipline you choose for him. He has the bloodlines and the conformation….and will have the temperament to be a star…all wrapped up in that glorious golden shimmering coat that the Akhal Tekes are so famous for. You choose the discipline for him and be prepared to stand out in the crowd.

He will be very well handled in time to leave for his new home including….lead, trim, rug, float.

Payment plan to fall in line with his weaning is available. Alternatively finance through Equine Finance Solutions can be arranged. PM me today as I don’t think this super colt will be for sale for very long.IMG_1294 (1024x723)
