El Hamal had beautiful horses. They owned Gwasz El Azjaa by *Bask x *Gwadiana) He was a great sire, a terrific moving horse, has a long high set neck and a good body. If I had to fault him anywhere, it would be that his head was plainer but not bad by any means. He was flashy, a bay with white socks and white on his face. He had a son Gwazar El Hamal that was fabulous but a training accident ended his carreer early on. His dam was a straight Egyptian mare. Carol the owner had a great eye for a horse and wasn't stuck on pedigrees but bred good horses. She had a lovely farm in CT and Hugh Parker was the trainer for many years. Frances Lennon also trained there for awhile.

Is El Hamal still in operation? Its been years since Ive seen the farm... 1985 to be exact. I lived at El Hamal for 7-8 years. On a whim I started searching for any information on the place a couple of days ago and found this website. From the sounds of it you knew my mother Fran. Do Carol and Stan still own the farm? Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Actually Im Fran's youngest son. My sister did train for a while after my mothers death, but she has been out of the business for quite a while now. As for Stanislav, I remember him very well. I remember him as a yearling. Im glad to hear that he is doing well. He is an absolutely stunning horse.
Thank you for the information you two. Take care of yourselves
