As Arab el Haira Stud, owned by Annette Teuber-Rieger and Volker Teuber (Germany) informed us, a few days ago (28th May) a bay filly by international multichampion Esparto (Ekstern – Ekspozycja), bred by Michałów Stud and on lease to Ajman Stud, was born. The filly, out of Riad Hannah (TC Kashmir – Habenda/Probat) is the first pure Polish foal by Esparto born in Europe.
“We have seen Esparto in Aachen in 2006”, explains Annette Teuber-Rieger. “He was so beautiful and since the first moment our favorite! After we heard that Esparto would arrive at Frank Spönle´s training center in Germany for a short time, we took our chance and booked a breeding for our mare Hannah which owns a really good pedigree on Polish bloodlines. Her mother Habenda (Probat – Hajnówka), bred by Janów Podlaski Stud, is Elitemare in Germany. Her father TC Kashmir is a son of the famous stallion Nabor. The combination of Monogramm, Eukaliptus, Probat and Nabor was very interesting for us. Esparto’s wonderful type and outstanding movement made him to be the right stallion for Hannah to “create” an also outstanding foal”.
“Hadiya el Haira is as beautiful as her parents” Annette continues. “She has very long legs, a very elegant body and a very, very typeful face. We are so happy with her, because she got everything we expected from this combination of bloodlines. This year we will give all our mares an “appointment” with Esparto. Hannah again, Wieranca (Ferment – Wierana by Euben), and Anatewka (Ecaho – Anegdota by Eldon). We hope that we will have the same luck as in 2008”.
