In case you are wondering just what will be shared on The Romance of the Arabian Horse – it is moments such as this…
Location – South Point Hotel & Casino, Las Vegas
Date – 16 April 2016
Event – Wortex Kalliste takes to the ring…
Some moments go down in history – and you can say… You were there.
In all the years that I have been going to the Arabian Breeders’ World Cup, I cannot remember such a dramatic entrance, such an amazing win. The European bred and owned Wortex Kalliste made his US debut in Vegas this morning – and he came into the arena as if he owned it! With a huge score of 333.5 points, he won the class with ease, a full four points ahead of the next horse.
Wortex Kalliste is owned and bred by Jennifer Dhombre of Kalliste Arabians in France. Jennifer not only has the honour of breeding this dynamic and typey colt, she also bred his dam, the acclaimed Mirwanah Kalliste. Wortex Kalliste is sired by Shanghai EA, and he is standing in the US at Ted Carson Training Center.
Congratulations to all involved in this impressive win – the roof truly came off the Vegas arena today!
