This is actually a really well bred guy.
He's a really nice cross of Polish through Bask and Eukaliptus and Crabbet through Serafix (one of my personal favourite Crabbet bred stallions) breeding with a touch of Russian thrown in there through Aswan.
His sire is a lovely multi-national champion stallion that really took after his sire GG Jabask by the imported Bask, who earned himself the "sire of the 21st century" tag line.
Another of my favourite I see is Bey Shah. Fame VF is definitely Bey Shah's most famous son, although I am partial to Bey Shah myself. He was an incredible producer, especially of broodmares - as seen with Mistral Bey. They are noted to be more of the head stronged horses but they will work to the death for you.
Down on his dam side there's Padron's Psyche who was a really exqusitie and pre-potent sire for producing main ring Halter foals - You still see a lot of Psyche bred horses winning in Halter. This line also brings in another of my favourite Crabbets, Bright Wings.
Lots of halter breeding, Psyche's had success in the WP ring, and Bey Shah had quite a few in the working western disciplines.
Very nice solid, pedigree.
Be interesting to see photo's - both Bey Shah, Bask, and Patron were very pre-potent lines and I wonder which one he ended up taking after.
