FAKATEKO Liver Chestnut stallion, 1986. (Zacateco / Zakateka). Breeder and owner: S.A.R. Teresa de Borbon. Strain: Managhi Sbeyli (Beni Kaled, 1918).
As in 2006, Spain has continued with a points system to select this year’s WAHO Trophy winner, taking into account both Show and Sports results of the proposed horse and up to 5 of its best placed offspring.
ABCCA is proud to announce that the 2007 WAHO Trophy winner for Spain is Fakateko, son of Spain’s 2005 WAHO Trophy winner Zacateco (Jacio/Baldosa) and the mare Zakateka (Marmol/Samarkanda), owned by SRH Teresa De Borbon and bred at her Flor De Lis Stud farm.
Fakateko wins thanks to his own Show points which have been added to the points earned by his daughter Braken (out of Banika), who was 2nd placed and Top 5 at the 1994 European Championships, 3rd placed and Top 10 at the World Championships, Filly Champion in Menton and in the All Nations Cup that same year – and also the dam of Top 5 World Championship winner, Gasir; his son Luksor (out of Ankara), Junior Champion in Madrid and 2nd placed in Arabes & Co in Miono, Spain, which is a mixed Show and Sports competition; and his son SS Orion (out of Daikiri), presently in the USA, where he competes very successfully both in Show and Sports events.
With these results, Fakateko earned more than double the points of his nearest rival in Spain’s 2007 WAHO Trophy calculations.
