EXXALT: Ready for the Global Stage

Now five years old, much has been written within these pages about the fantastic stallion that is Exxalt. This is a stallion bred to breed on. This is a stallion who is truly making his mark. This is a stallion who is ready for the global stage. Dare we say, this is the stallion who is the next big thing.

Bred and owned by Frances Butler, Sybil and Jeff Collins, and Kay and James Smith, Exxalt has spent his whole life with Ted Carson, now located in Allgood, Alabama. Twice shown and twice a champion, Exxalt has taken the two most important titles on the North America show scene – US National Champion Futurity Colt, and Scottsdale International Gold Champion Colt. And now it is his progeny that are winning the titles and representing their sire in glorious style.

“Exxalt is a horse many years in the making,” smiles Ted. “We wanted to breed a significant sire in the industry, and our dream of this began with the purchase of his maternal great-granddam, LF Triumphant Star.

“Now, we have his third foal crop on the ground and his second foal crop have just enjoyed a successful Scottsdale – Pilatus PCF (ex Alexandria PCF) was Reserve Junior Colt while PCF Navarre (ex Euphoria PCF) was Bronze International Yearling Colt. People are thinking about breeding his two-year old daughters, such as the phenomenally beautiful Exxhale (ex DA Elegantra), who was second in Scottsdale as a yearling and is owned and bred by Jeff and Sybil Collins.

“Time goes fast. People want immediate results, we almost cannot produce horses quickly enough. But people need to sit back and realise how patient you must be with breeding horses. You must have a vision – as we did when we purchased LF Triumphant Star – and you must commit to being patient.

“This year, Exxalt has surpassed expectations again. I know so many of the mares he has bred to very well, and each time when bred to Exxalt, they have their best foal. He completes the mares. To me, he is the 19.5 horse – he produces foals that are more pretty than their dams, and have better carriage and attitude, and are better in the body and feet. Exxalt completes the package, and he has been bred to a broad selection of bloodlines.

“His foal this year out of Geneva CS (SF Veraz x Gevalia CA) is particularly special. She is a very pretty filly with a great attitude, and she has all the things you would want. We know that next year will be another great year for Exxalt in the show-ring, with fillies such as this representing him.”

Exxalt’s full sister, Exxaltress, reinforces this belief; the mirror image of her brother, and Reserve Champion Mare at this year’s Scottsdale Show, she has just been leased by Dubai Arabian Stud and will debut with them at the Dubai International Arabian Horse Show.

“We have always said that Exxalt was bred to breed on. Now is the time to reaffirm our faith in him as the next big thing that everyone has been looking for. Exxalt is ready for the global stage and to make the impact that we know he is capable of.”
