More About Neika du Talus

Cicave du Talus: A Destiny Cut Short

Neika du Talus produced the great hope, Cicave du Talus (sired by Untouchable m), who tragically died just after being exported to the USA, right at the onset of his 10th year, as he was stepping up to the CSI5* level. The stallion Cicave du Talus made a spectacular impact in 2021 at just 9 years old, winning a CSI4* GP 1.50m with François Xavier Boudant. It was supremely frustrating that Cicave du Talus was also highly anticipated as a breeding prospect, as his first offspring showed exceptional potential. Fate thwarted Cicave du Talus’s rise in elite sport, but his brother, Saphir du Talus (by Diamant de Semilly), excelled up to CSI5* 1.55m with Abdelkebir Ouaddar. This makes Neika du Talus, truly an exceptional mother.

Voltaire: From Number 1 to World Number 1

Neika du Talus is a daughter of Voltaire (by Furioso II), who was ranked the top sire globally by WBFSH in 2001. The high-quality genes of Voltaire passed on to Kannan (also by Voltaire), who became the WBFSH world number one in 2014. Such an achievement is rare and remarkable. Neika thus carries the best genetic traits not only through her sire but also through her dam’s sire, Narcos II, who was the fourth-ranked sire of winners worldwide.

The Influence of Galoubet A

The second dam of Neika du Talus, Carla d’Incoville, is by the stallion Quiniou. Strongly infused with Anglo-Arab blood, Quiniou, a notable winner, is a son of the prominent sire Galoubet A (by Almé). The influence of Galoubet A runs through the veins of Neika du Talus. The inbreeding strategy on Galoubet A, a proven formula, is confirmed as successful by Cicave du Talus (Untouchable m < Quick Star < Galoubet A), the prodigious son of Neika du Talus.
