Ghazal Al Badia
( Laheeb Al Nasser x Hanaa Al Badia )
2013 Grey Stallion
Sold 2014 exp. Europe
Ghazal Al Badia is a refined and typey grey colt with a rare and unique pedigree. He has a fine tapered head, a well shaped neck, and a lofty canter.
This August 2013 colt is sired by the Qatari bred stallion Laheeb Al Nasser. Laheeb Al Nasser spent a significant portion of his breeding career at DeShazer Arabians in Houston, Texas. In 2012 he was sold to Hanaya Stud of Switzerland. Considered by many to be one of the most beautiful Straight Egyptian stallions in the world today, Laheeb Al Nasser is sired by World Champion stallion Al Adeed Al Shaqab and out of World Reserve Champion mare Bint Saida Al Nasser. Laheeb Al Nasser has subsequently sired many of his own international champions.
Ghazal Al Badia's dam Hanaa Al Badia is perhaps the only Al Adeed Al Shaqab daughter bred outside of the Middle East with a dam line to Inshass of Egypt's Saqlawiah mare Anzar. The Al Adeed Al Shaqab / Anzar cross has been a good one, producing two extremely successful young show mares for Al Shaqab Stud of Qatar; Nouf Al Shaqab and Laian Al Shaqab. Remarks Joe Ferriss, respected historian and writer, "This line from Anzar originates in the Royal Inshass Stud, the result of a gift from King Ibn Saud of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to King Farouk of Egypt, as a consequence of diplomatic visits to improve relations between the two countries. The gift was the fine grey mare Hind of the Saqlawi strain, the granddam of Anzar. Horses of this line are often very fine skinned and dry with a special elegance and beautiful facial expression."
