Another Teke polo pony in the making
I recently sold Alykhat, my 3-yr-old filly by Gindarkh 13 out of a Mustang mare, to Texas, where she will learn how to be a polo pony. She will be joining Darkh Amber, also by Gindarkh 13, who I sold a year ago to the same woman, and in that year has gone from green-broke to now playing 4-goal polo. Brooks (their owner)is so impressed with how well Amber is doing, how quickly she learned and adapted to the game - not to mention how gorgeous she looks flashing around on the polo field - that she couldn't resist trying another one. I believe that Alykhat will be just as good, if not better. Both of them, Darkh Amber and Alykhat, both inherited their Akhal-Teke sire's agility and determination.
Hope everyone is having a beautiful spring - Shirley
