Sahara Sand (Burning Sand X Sahara Croixnoire) makes her debut in Doha today.

She finished 2nd, showing notable promise as a first time starter. We were watching with great interest as she is out of the same dam as Queen Kong (dam of TM Fred Texas and TM Junior Johnson). Her calm demeanor, class and looks are reminiscent of that of Queen Kong. Great to see. Congrats to her team!
