A Rare opportunity to purchase a young, extremely talented and level headed stallion has arisen with Wilga Park Morgans decision to offer Silver Sabre for sale. Sabre is the only entire son of Cortez in Australia.
Recently Sabre was given a 2 month break from training and, true to Morgan horse form (that sold me on the Morgan Horse and his Dam about 20 years ago), he was as rideable as if he had been under saddle the day before. Sabre’s Trainer is very excited about his future and believes he is capable of achieving great things under saddle.
Wilga Park Silver Sabre – Homozygous Black Stallion with a cream gene = Smokey Black.
Dual Registered with Dilutes Australia and Morgan Horse Association of Australia (and American Morgan Horse Association)
Western Working x Lippitt/Government bloodlines
RanchBoss Cortez x Eagleview Skybeau
DOB 18 Oct 2013.
Wilga Park Silver Sabre is the cross of RanchBoss Cortez and Calypso (Eagleview Skybeau), our first Morgan mare, and he is a perfect combination of these fabulous bloodlines.
Sabre is growing into a spectacular young stallion. His mind is so sensible and he is so very trainable. He will certainly be following in his father’s footsteps as a stallion with that recognisable trait – superb temperament. He also has the athleticism that the combination of Cortez and Calypso genes bestow on their progeny. We are excited about this boy’s future as an equine athlete.
Kathy’s dream was achieved when she rode Sabre at the 2018 Australian National Morgan Horse show, aged four, where he was awarded Supreme Champion Ridden Entire. She had ridden his Dam, Calypso, at her first National Morgan Horse Show, 17 years earlier, when Calypso was the same age, to win High Point Pure Bred of Show.
We recognise that Sabre is a talented, beautifully mannered stallion who needs to show his full potential in coming years … and that may not be possible with us.
We would dearly love Sabre to go to a home that is appreciative of his potential and will explore avenues to promote him.
Sabre is a proven sire with his first foal due in November 2018 and is a very easy stallion to collect over a ‘dummy’. Our breeding Vet’s words were … “He is a son of Cortez – I would expect nothing less!”
Description of the Silver Sabre:
“This multi-purpose sage has the striking good looks of an ornamental, plus the delicious flavour of a culinary herb. Sage was always revered as a wonder herb that cured all diseases and was even thought to have magical qualities. It was regarded with the utmost respect from all corners of the world, from the Egyptians to the Native Americans.”
… Striking good looks, magical, delicious, command respect … all these words are a perfect description of this beautiful specimen of Morgan horse.
