Before we continue with D Angelo’s story let talk about champion horses from a small breeder’s perspective. How is the situation nowadays regarding the World Championship? “Big money” farms respectively their agents observing the market and buy everything looking like a sure winner. Small breeders are hard-pressed to keep pace. An alternative option is buying an underestimated horse, recognizing the potential, giving it a chance and creating a World Champion. This is, more or less, what Elizar Arabians is trying with D Angelo. Still, it is not easy to compete with global players and their unlimited possibilities.The highest level, of course, is breeding a World Champion. So far, Elizar Arabians have no experience on this level but who knows. Probably, regardless of the results in Paris, D Anglo might sire a future World Champion. This is what small breeders keep going.
