In this day and age, who could conceive refusing an offer by Salman Khan? Apparently, race horse owners. Bollywood's Bhai jaan offered Rs 2 Crore to purchase Saqab, a celebrated horse owned by Siraj Pathan. Pathan has previously refused offers by the Badal family as well. The horse is unique in that only two other horses in the world (in the US and Canada respectively) can do what it does.
As reported, Saqab can walk at a speed of 43kmph in clean Ravel walk and can keep the same pace throughout so that it doesn’t disturb the rider. This is something unheard of in the history of horses. Owner Siraj Pathan bought this horse when it was five-year-old paying Rs 14.5 lac in Rajasthan’s Palotara Fair. Originally a Sindhi breed, Saqab’s mother was of Pakistani-Sindhi breed, whereas its father was from Rajasthani-Sutharwali breed. It has won 19 straight races and is yet to lose. However, it has never run in competitive races on the race course.
