Alexxanderr the Great UPDATED

The three-year old Alexxanderr has been one of the hottest young colts on the circuit since he made his spectacular debut as a yearling. Bred in the US and owned by Alsayed Stud from the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Alexxanderr has just been named Junior Male Champion at the All Nations’ Cup in Aachen. Our cover horse for October, we celebrate this incredibly popular young colt, who is surely a contender for the title at next month’s Paris World Championships.

Alexxanderr as a yearling

Alexxanderr was bred by Francis Butler and Brandie Carson, located in the United States. His sire is the spectacular Excalibur EA, the 2014 European Triple Crown winner; just three years older than Alexxanderr, Excalibur EA stood Senior Male Champion in Aachen last weekend alongside his son. Excalibur is a son of the super sire, Shanghai EA (ex Salymah EA by Khidar out of Libanon Azadika), a multiple champion across Europe and the Middle East, and a son in turn of the ‘champion maker’, WH Justice (Magnum Psyche x Vona Sher-Renea by El Sher-Mann). Excalibur EA is out of Essence of Marwan EA, a daughter of Marwan Al Shaqab (Gazal Al Shaqab x Kajora by Kaborr) and out of Elizja (Esta-Ghalil x Aica by Ibn Estasha). Alexxanderr’s dam is the beautiful mare, AR Most Irresistible, a daughter of the brilliant ML Mostly Padron (Padrons Psyche x HS Mostly by Padron), thus doubling up the Padron Psyche (Padron x Kilika by Tamerlan) blood, found through Excalibur EA’s sireline. AR Most Irresistible is out of the Falcon BHF (Bey Shah x Bey Serenade SF by Bey Shah) daughter, Flirtatshahan BHF, who in turn is out of Khemos Best Bit (Khemosabi x Arabest Danna by Nabiel). The combination of Excalibur EA and AR Most Irresistible proved to be a potent one, bringing together a beautiful range of bloodlines in one complete package; and that package, is Alexxanderr.

Alexxanderr as a two-year old

In 2015, this charismatic grey colt was the flagship horse for Alsayed Stud, having been spotted by Abdulwahab and Khalid Alsayed while still a foal. Alexxanderr made his debut for Alsayed Stud at Menton, immediately convincing all of his qualities as he took the Gold Yearling Colt title. In both Aachen and Paris, Alexxanderr was named Silver Yearling Colt Champion and he finished 2015 by being named Gold Yearling Male Champion at the King Abdulaziz Arabian Horse Center Show in Dirab, Saudi Arabia. The following January, he took the Gold Junior Male Championship title at the Prince Sultan International Arabian Horse Festival.

Now, as a three-year old, Alexxanderr is back out in the show-rings once more. In Aachen, he came into the arena with all the joie de vivre that is so typical of this Arabian horse, and he shone. With an almost perfect score for head – just one 19.5 among five 20s – Alexxanderr received 93.61 points from the judges, a huge score. Come Sunday’s championships, and Alexxanderr reigned supreme, taking the Junior Male Championship title, much to the delight of all his connections.

Alexxanderr the champion

Alexxanderr has more than proved himself, and there is much more to come from him, not least in the breeding barn. Now, however, the focus is very much on the Paris World Championships before he will return once more to the land of his ancestors as he goes to compete in the title shows across the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and beyond.
