About 15.1hh, black, son of the legendary Abdul out of Waikon Park Stormy and owned by Mr R Reynolds.
Coolabah was a well performed horse producing good temperament and type with plenty of ability and cattle sense.
Coolabah achieved open status with campdraft credits as below:
Third novice horse of the year for ABCRA 1995.
Four firsts and a second in novice, one first in a maiden, and 2nd and third placings in three open campdrafts.
Lightly shown for champion stallion at the 1989 Maitland Agricultural Show.
Full brother to:
o The renowned Abray (Waikon Park Abray) who won 1 novice and 9 open campdrafts.
o Waikon Park Regret, winner of 1 maiden and 3 novice campdrafts.
o Waikon Park Sunray, winner of 1 maiden, 2 novice and 2 open campdrafts.
o Waikon Park Able, won 1 novice and several placings in campdrafts. Also was 1st in working stallion at Sydney Royal Show 1987.
Coolabah’s progeny include maiden, novice, open and ladies’ winners.
Coolabah’s sire, Abdul, was a very well performed horse winning the Warwick Gold Cup in 1973, the World Championship Campdraft at Sydney Royal in 1974 and the Expo Championship Campdraft in 1975 – amongst many other great wins.
During the 2005-2008 seasons Coolabah had some very choice mares (show, campdraft and performance) and we are now realising the results with some very nice quality stock (see our youngsters page).
His stock are breaking-in exceptionally well and are proving to be sensible, willing and a pleasure to handle. Silverthorn Isabeau is the first youngster we have shown by him and then as a yearling at the first show she attended (Sydney Royal 2008) she won the two years and under filly class and went on to be awarded reserve champion mare/filly. Sydney Royal 2009 saw her win the same class. Another filly, Cee Dee Bracelette repeated this performance at Sydney Royal Show in 2010 with a first and reserve champion mare/filly.
