SAMIR, Chestnut stallion, *1984 (Hosam / Usajna)
Breeder & Owner: National Stud Farm Topolcianky.
Strain: Obeyan (Karima)
The Slovak Republic has announced their winning horse for their 2006 WAHO Trophy Award. A special commission organized by the Ministry of Agriculture of the Slovak Republic selected the veteran stallion Samir as the recipient. He was chosen on the basis of his excellent pedigree, outstanding conformation, superb movement and performance both in hand and under saddle, and for his success as a breeding stallion.
The population of purebred Arabian horses in Slovakia is quite small and this is the only reason why Samir was not also tested on the race-track. All his connections at Topolcianky are very proud of their home-bred stallion Samir, the worthy recipient of the 2006 WAHO Trophy in their country.
