Typey chestnut colt by Sambist out of Jazmyn; born June 2008. We expect great things from this elegant youngster as both parents are AHS Premium horses. Sakr's stable name is Minstrel.

Enjoy your freedom, Sakr - any minute, Fiona will put a saddle on you!

Now in the show ring, Sakr has never been out of the ribbons. As a 2-year old in 2010, he underwent the tough BEF Young Horse Evaluation and was awarded a coveted Higher First Premium which the BEF rates as "a horse that has an average of very good or good scores across the criteria to be assessed. The horse has the potential and outlook to perform well at national level. The difference between a higher first and a first is that the evaluators believe it shows greater athleticism and a greater potential to perform well so as to set it apart from a First premium horse". Sakr was the third highest two-year old Endurance entry 2010 and in joint 8th place of all ages (foal, yearling, two and three year olds) of all Endurance entries.
