The Royal choice

In breeding, it is important to choose carefully.
As far as guarantees are concerned, the Aga Khan’s thoroughbred creations have proven their worth.

KARAKTAR offers the quintessential quality of His Highness’s breeding operation, whose colours he carried to success in a brilliant career, curtailed by injury.
His pedigree is rich in top-class performers, notably his brother KAREZAK (Gr.1 2nd over hurdles in GB).  KARAKTAR also conveys the immense jumping virtues of SADLER’S WELLS, via one of his best descendants HIGH CHAPARRAL.

At stud, he transmits his exceptional athletic qualities, and his first three-year-olds will be proof of this in 2021. Now is the moment to seize the crown.

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.
