Choose the right Khan !

Better to be in the right team. In racing, the right team is often synonymous with Aga Khan.

This works out well, as KARAKTAR is the incarnation of the Prince’s breeding operation. He carried the famous red and green silks during his short but exceptional racing career.

His pedigree is highlighted by top class performers, on the flat and over jumps, with a standout being his brother KAREZAK, 2nd in a Grade 1 hurdle in England.

HIGH CHAPARRAL, the sire of KARAKTAR, was an international champion for the Irish operation, Coolmore.

This son of SADLER’S WELLS is one of the breeds’ most influential sires, with a clear potential for National Hunt breeding. Best to be in the right Khan.

PEDIGREE NOTES

Athletic son of High Chaparral, sire of multiple Gr.1 winner Altior 

From one of the liveliest Aga Khan families, out of the King’s Best winning mare Karawana.

Half-brother to Karezak, Gr.1 place-getter over hurdles in England.
