“This horse passed the eyes and hands of several professional breeders, trainers and managers.”
The top photo is Excalibur as a yearling arriving in the Middle East.
He is now All Nations Cup champion 2014, European Champion 2014, and well on his way to completing the Triple Crown with a World Championship title later this month. For sure an “ugly duckling” to a “beautiful swan”.
If you see potential, don’t listen to opinions of another. Keep believing!
