Shadwell Arabian Stallion is happy to announce a new partnership with Soc. Agricola di Besnate, in Italy.

Starting in 2017, Soc. Agricola di Besnate will be the agent for Shadwell Arabian stallions: they will store frozen semen of our stallions and will be the point of contact for all the Arabian breeders based in Italy.

Paolo Crespi, manager of Soc. Agricola di Besnate, has been a valuable partner for Shadwell for many years.  Two Shadwell thoroughbred stallions stand at Besnate: ARCANO (OASIS DREAM) and the very popular MUJAHID (DANZIG), 5 times leading Italian based sire.  This new role involving Shadwell Arabian stallions continues this successful relationship.

Mr Crespi commented: “SAB sees this move as a big opportunity to develop further the breeding and racing of Arabians in Italy.  Shadwell is a brand known for professionalism and fairness, and has already proven an active and steady commitment to improve horse breeding in Italy; it is therefore a true privilege to represent this firm.”

The facility will store frozen semen of the stallions AL JAKBAR, MADJANI and NO RISK AL MAURY, all Group 1 winners and sires of Stakes winners.
