QR Marc’s story is familiar all over the world: foaled in 2005, bred by Lou and Vicki Doyle of Quail Ridge Arabians in California, QR Marc became an overnight sensation the moment he was born. As word got out about the type, beauty and charisma of this colt foal, it was a race against time to see who would get there first. Roxann Hart of Rohara Arabians in Orange Lake (Florida) was the lucky breeder and it would be she who propelled QR Marc to the global stage and be among the first to breed from him. In addition to the breeding success, it would be with Rohara that QR Marc would earn the titles of 2006 Unanimous Region 14 Sweepstakes Yearling Colt and 2006 US Nationals Reserve Champion Breeders Sweepstakes Colt, thus giving QR Marc what would be the first of many trips to the top of the line in the show-ring. QR Marc’s amazing journey had only just begun. In 2007, Paul Gheysens and QR Marc’s paths crossed for the very first time. Paul immediately saw the potential of this young colt and so he purchased him and brought him to Europe, where he became chief sire of Paul’s own Knocke Arabians. At QR Marc’s very first show, the inaugural Al Khalediah Arabian Horse Festival in 2008, now renamed the Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz International Arabian Horse Festival, the world paused as he entered the European and Middle Eastern arena for the first time. Handlers stopped standing up their three-year-old colts and just stared at this showy bay as he made his first steps before us. Spectators were transfixed – as were the judges; QR Marc left the show with this, the first of what would be many Gold Championship titles, and his reputation as a force to be reckoned with had began.
