Salao IX is a 4yo black PRE stallion literally just off the plane, the latest of the Byalee stallions and part of Auction of the Stars., and we can't wait to see the future unfold for this amazing sire!
Salao offers the most royal of Spanish bloodlines from the Yeguada Militar (Royal Stud) with a pedigree boasting both Reproductor Elite and Calificado stallions. His blood is the bluest of blue and he passed his breeding revision in Spain prior to export to Australia.
Whilst still maturing under saddle, Salao shows a generous overtrack in the walk, a ground-covering uphill canter and a scopey trot that promises much for the future – and on top of that, Salao has an amazing temperament that sees him described as a teddybear! He challenges Byalee Briar for the title of the quietest horse on the property ... really is the kind of hunk that belongs in a calendar and yet loves attention and is the most gentle of personalities.
Salao’s grandsire Ermitano III is the first Spanish stallion (one of only two ever) to be both elite and improver breeding classified, an accolade awarded on the basis of the genetic assessment of his descendants on a Global Genetic Index. Legendary dam sire Obcecado, also from Yeguada Militar (the Royal Stud), was three times Andalusian champion in Spain while HIS famous sire Bizarra VI also sired 2004 Olympian silver medallist Oleaje as well as many Calificado sires, while Oleaje in turn went on to sire champion stallion Habanero, who stands at stud in the US. Yeguada Militar bloodlines are some of the most sought-after in the world and we are expecting great contributions to our gene pool in terms of piaffe and passage from Salao – watch this space!
Salao stands at stud with a service fee of $1500 including GST.
