A striking young stallion with an exciting and quite unique blend of the best of British Sporthorse and Russian breeding.
Kyzyl Double or Quits is 97% Anglo-Teke (TB x Akhal-Teke). He has a beautiful temperament and very correct movement. His bloodlines are full of courage, soundness, stamina and quality.
His young sire, Welton Double Cracker, is rising through the British Eventing grades, and continues to be on the Pathway Project towards Olympics 2012. His grandsire, Double Trigger, is one of the outstanding distance racehorses of the last quarter-century, winning two Ascot Gold Cups and £500,000 total prize money, while his grand-dam, Baby Welton, is herself an Advanced Event Horse and is by the immortal Welton Crackerjack.
His dam, Gulara, an elite-graded mare from Russia’s leading Stavropol Stud, never competed due to a head injury at two years. Her sire, Gaigysis, is the most prolific sire ever of Akhal-Teke breed champions (sire of two Russian champions and three world champions, Grandsire of two Russian champions and five world champions).
Kyzyl Double or Quits was shown as a yearling by a 14-year-old girl, placing 3rd at the prestigious Welton Youngstock Show (beating the Young Sporthorse Champion of the Royal Welsh Winter Fair) and 3rd at the Monmouthshire Show (Sporthorse Breeding).
