SAMIR, Chestnut Stallion, *2007 (Cygaj / 756 Ibn Galal 7).
Breeder/Owner: Mr. Valentin Georgescu.
Strain: Obayan (212 Delilah, 1893)
The National Agency for Breeding & Reproduction in Zootechny has awarded their 2009 WAHO Trophy to the oustanding young privately-bred stallion, Samir.
Sired by the imported Polish stallion, Cygaj (1991, Pamir/Cygaretka, bred by Michalow Stud) and out of the Mangalia-bred mare 756 Ibn Galal 7 (Ibn Galal I-6 / 647 Nedjari VII-2), his pedigree blends Polish and Egyptian lines with some of the oldest bloodlines from both Romania and Hungary.
Samir is especially noted for his excellent movement and very good character and temperament, and it was for these reasons that he was awarded the 2009 WAHO Trophy. It is hoped he will be an important addition to the breeding stallions in Romania in the future.
