Panache is a 1990 born grey stallion and is the sire of several mares retained by us. By Arabian Lodge Andre, who was a Gai General son and from Arabian Lodge Hafiza, an Ansata El Masri mare, his dam was Burnham Adjanette, by Adjan from a Gai General mare. Panache is the epitomy of Gainey breeding. Unfortunately, Arabian Lodge Andre left few progeny as he died at a young age.
Panache won numerous awards as a young colt, being Reserve Champion East Coast Yearling and the following year was Top Five 2 year Old colt. But his greatest achievements have been in the breeding barn. Progeny have excelled in halter, performance and endurance with progeny exported overseas.
Some of his well known progeny are Moondarra Pizzazz, a multi champion stallion at halter and under saddle, in the Arabian ring as well as the Stockhorse arena. Moondarra Merlin, mutli champion halter gelding and Moondarra Matia who are now both in Bahrain competing in the endurance field with the Bahrain Royal Stables.
The most recent export Moondarra Maya left our shores in July 2014 and won her first endurance ride in Qatar in January, 2015. Prior to her export Maya was also a successful Arabian racehorse, coming 3rd from her only start at the Gold Coast Turf club in December 2013.
Samson is a 1999 born chestnut stallion with a bag full of champion awards at halter. He was probably the most successful show colt in Queensland at the time.
Samson was bred by frozen semen and is by Sambist, a Balaton son, who has been a very successful racehorse in Europe before being sold to the UAE. Sambist was at stud in the UK for his owners prior to his death at 27years old in November 2014. Samson is from the Amir El Shaklan mare Electra Tai. He has the most breathtaking movement, and smooth balanced body. He compliments the Panache daughters admirably.
The first of the Samson Tai progeny, Moondarra Pearlina was Reserve Champion Filly at her first (A) class show and two of his geldings Moondarra Aragon and Moondarra Samuri have been sold to Al Reef stables in the UAE and several mares are also in the UAE. The gelding Moondarra Code Red who has been a successful halter gelding is now broken and has begun his performance career as our daughter Kellie's mount.
Several of Samson Tai's progeny have now been exported for endurance to the UAE.
