Gai Monarch was foaled in 1991, the same year his dam, Gaishea, was named U.S. and Canadian National Champion Mare. A son of U.S. National Champion Stallion, Gai Parada, Gai Monarch's pedigree is four and five generations of selective Gainey breeding. Sixty years of breeding National Champions is indicative of a great breeding program where champions are produced by design, not by lucky accident.
Shown only 7 times in halter, his record is impressive:
Now, Gai Monarch takes his place among the legendary Arabians in his pedigree. With a limited number of foals in the show ring, several have already become champions. His daughter, Gai Portia, produced the Unanimous 2008 Arabian Breeder's World Cup Champion Jr. Mare, Kharrea PGA.
Though Gai Monarch passed away in 2007, his individual quality is proven; his genetic prepotency --- a matter of record.
A very limited quantity of high quality frozen semen is available.
It is interesting to note that of the 83 U.S. and Canadian National Champion Halter Mares, 49 have produced foals by U.S and Canadian National Champion Stallions.
In the history of North America's national shows only one of these foals has grown up to be named a National Champion Stallion----- Gai Monarch
