Exclusive Offer from Al Shira’aa Farms for Top AES Mares

We are very excited about a very special and exclusive opportunity for our AES breeders:
Al Shira’aa farms are offering for one time only 3 FREE coverings of Chacco Bay to owners of mares registered or graded with the Anglo European Studbook.
All nominations must be received by 30th April and sent to [email protected].
To be eligible, the mares have to either have been competitive at Grand Prix level themselves, or produced a Grand Prix horse, or have 1.45m showjumping progeny from the close motherline.
Mare not graded yet? No problem! Simply get in touch, and take advantage of our physical or virtual grading opportunities this year, starting from just £40 per mare.
Chacco Bay is a son of the exceptional stallion Chaccato who carries the important blood of the great Chacco Blue and out of a Heops mare. His direct motherline is absolutely packed with performance progeny with three licensed and internationally successful stallions in Locadeur, Casino Berlin and Casirus and further internationally competitive offspring in Queen Carola, Infinity 24 and Pokerface.
In his short career thus far, Chacco Bay did not disappoint, having earned a silver medal at Zangersheide in 2019 in the 5yo World Breeding Championships Final at Lanaken with Mickey Pender (IRE). He produced 4 clears from 4 rounds over testing and challenging tracks built at 130m with a jump off of 135m for a 5yo.
Last summer, he emerged from the first Covid 19 lockdown in full form, and we were thrilled to see him under the saddle of none other than William Funnel taking the title at the 6-year-olds Championship at Bolesworth.
Says Samantha Kettle, who is in charge of Stallion Nominations for Al Shira’aa Farms:
“Chacco is everything you look for in the modern day jumping horse, he is, to put it quite simply, just incredible.
“The public were watching him warm up at Lanaken in awe, he has such a presence about him, he carries himself like a true professional at such a young age, he is definitely one of the most interesting young horses on the circuit!
“He’s a tall and athletic type, I can see him being very versatile as a stallion. He is extremely fertile which is great because I can always guarantee clients a pregnancy!”
HH Sheikha Fatima Bint Hazza Al Nahyan who the owns Al Shira’aa Stables has a strong vision, as she wants to see British breeding at the very top globally, competing on equal terms with all the other top showjumping studbooks.
Her extremely generous offer of 3 free coverings to top AES mares is a true testament to this, and we are very much looking forward to seeing some fantastic applications coming forward!
Please note the shipping costs of semen to the successful winners will be at the owner's expense.
