"Diesel" meets today's tough criteria for that of a top halter stallion and sire with exceptional class, charisma & style, as evidenced by an outstanding show record at the National level, and the unparalleled, proven halter genetics he possesses. His overall correctness and balance is accented by a superbly distinctive coat pattern, which he's already passed along to a great percentage of his get.
The Secret Pardon's wonderful physical qualities are complimented by suitable soundness at the genetic level, for which he was extensively tested while being qualified as a sire suitable for the export of his frozen semen overseas. This combination of positive attributes is all & more than progressive halter breeders may desire. The Secret Pardon is ready to pass these favorable qualities along to his offspring as a sire!
Adding to his accomplishments and physical correctness is The Secret Pardon's HYPP N/N status, an attribute much sought today after by today's progressive halter breeders, and those breeding horses with AQHA bloodline in their pedigrees, as they seek to perfect their halter genetics, while helping to eradicate the heartache of HYPP the only proven method known to work-which is to breed it out.
Since The Secret Pardon does not carry the gene for HYPP, he therefor cannot pass it along to his off-spring. We encourage all who breed to focus on breeding for HYPP N/N foals!
The Secret Pardon stands at Char-O-Lot Ranch, in Myakka City, FL.

ABOUT FROZEN SEMEN for INTERNATIONAL BREEDERS
In 2011, The Secret Pardon underwent quarantine, and a battery of physical and genetic tests, as well as many tests on his semen to qualify and as a stallion who's frozen semen was certified for use on mares in Australia. All handling, storing and use of frozen semen that's been collected, tested and frozen by Peterson & Smith, as our SBS affiliates in the USA, are subject to the protocol as set forth by the SBS, and agreed to by SBS affiliates, worldwide. Currently, the stored semen of The Secret Pardon is at Golburn Valley Equine, although we will consider qualifying another SBS approved clinic for the use of frozen semen, if we are provided with the name of the clinic, etc.
Test straws from the Frozen Control Groups stored at P & S, were used under certified conditions on mares in the USA, with all but one mare being confirmed as pregnant at 18 days. The mare who was not pregnant was found to have had a slight infection which commonly affects the chance for pregancy adversely. All others are still pregant, and the frozen semen of The Secret Pardon has been examined by experts on both continents for any abnormalities with none found to date. The Viability and PMR for the semen when tested at several times post thaw, showed numbers that met or exceeded the parameters as required by the SBS. We will work with breeders to do what we can to help their mares become pregant using frozen semen, but do ask that the protocol we have set forth, which involves using SBS affiliates, must be adhered to. Failure to do so will result in declining your mare for breeding.
Certified Frozen Semen is currently stored at our SBS affiliate in Australia.
We strongly urge all who plan to use frozen semen to visit the SBS (Select Breeders Service) web site for information about the best methods to insure a resulting foal when using frozen semen. This is not the same procedure used with cooled semen, and per our contract must be conducted by experienced SBS affiliates.
May the Spots be with you!
