TR Viktor (US) - Salida

Chestnut stallion
1 November 2002

Valor is the stallion we were hoping for by crossing TR Viktor with Salida. With the Sarezin daughters reaching breeding age, an outcross for our predominantly El Shaklan lines was needed. TR Viktor, a straight Russian stallion bred in the US and now living in France was identified as a good choice to bring large eyes, and reinforce movement, without losing type.

By using Salida, our precious Sarika daughter, we have a colt with one complete outcross line (although linked to Sarika, who is quarter Russian), but also with a line to Sarika and El Shaklan. His older sister Valouria is already an Australian National Champion and Valor is very much a masculine version of her. We have great hopes for him as a show horse and future sire.

Available at stud:  $1,540 purebreds    $770 others  (including GST).
