Wendy Keller, Eskdale Arabians reports:

I have long admired the descendants of Desert Queen and when the opportunity arose to purchase a granddaughter I did not hesitate to bring her home to Eskdale Arabians in Queensland. Jaytee Royal Princess was bred by Julie and Terry Canacott and is sired by Royal Gindi. She is the youngest daughter of Arabian Park Ruling Queen (Ansata El Hakim x Desert Queen). This makes her a half sibling to the Australian Champion performance mares Jaytee Giselle, Jaytee Coppelia and Jaytee Rakysa.

Jaytee Royal Princess has lived a quiet life mostly in harsh drought conditions. When we purchased her in December 2012 she had not bred for ten years and had only foaled colts. She has rewarded our patience with a colt born in 2015 named Eskdale Casino Royale and in 2016 at the age of 20 she foaled the long awaited filly! We have named her Eskdale Princess Royale in honour of her dam, as she perpetuates a wonderful line from Arabian Park Stud.
