Dominic M. is an only 6 years old stallion, owned by Dominic M Partnership, sired by the Versace son Da Vinci FM and out of Rosa La Valentina, a daughter of DA Valentino out of a Ryad El Jamaal daughter. His pedigree combines some of the most valuable bloodlines giving breeders all over the world a huge range of new opportunities. A new partnership with great project supporting Dominic M for his future. His unique pedigree can be an enrichment for a lot of breeding programs: twice Versace combined with a genetic pool blessed with some of the best representatives of the breed of all times such as El Shaklan, Padrons Psyche, and Ali Jamaal. e mother of Versace, Precious As Gold was herself a very special and pretty mare and a great backbone to have in a breeder’s program. A er his rst o spring in the United Arab Emirates started winning Championships in 2018, including the 2018 Dubai International Show Gold Champion Foal Raboubah Al Hawajer, owned by Al Hawajer stud the 2019 Show Season started with amazing results. Once again, Raboubah made her way into the Championships by winning her class and later awarded Bronze Champion Yearling Filly at the Ajman Arabian Horse Show.

We now have the physical evidence that what we were waiting for it did come by in the end. ree of them have already given the international public a real chance to talk about them over major competitions in the United Arab Emirates.
