Interagro only exceptionally sells broodmares. Varanja was included in the 2006 Collection with the sole purpose of giving foreign breeders an opportunity to acquire a rare, superior genetic improver for their breeding programs and, therefore, an exceptional mare had to be chosen. Varanja Interagro brings the exceptional, highly demanded blood of some of the most successful mares and stallions of the Lusitano breed, such as – coming from the top down of her pedigree – the Quina (CI) lineage introduced by her paternal grandfather Visqueiro (CI) – see Stallion Gallery; the traditional and respected bullfighting strain selected by the Palha and Telles Ribeiro Studs, present in her paternal grandmother Torrinha (APP); and the Firme (SA) legacy – see the Stallion Gallery implanted by her mother, Naranja Interagro, whose father and grandfather, Zico (MMV), is two times over his grandson, thus making Firme (SA)’s name appear for three times on Varanja’s exceptional pedigree. More genetic power is very difficult if not impossible to find. Varanja’s mother, Naranja Interagro is a top producer broodmare, one of the best females in the Interagro Selected Group. Naranja has, so far, an offspring of nine, five males: Ramadan Interagro [with Emir II (MV)]; Santeiro [Faraó (JHC)]; Urupe [Grofle (APP)]; Zampano [Nicola (MAC)], Apache [Nordeste (SS)] and, four females: Talita Interagro [with Emir II (MV)]; Xistosa [Girofle (APP)]; Black Widow (Trinco Interagro) and Varanja herself. Varanja Interagro had her first offspring last year: Black Power Interagro [a filly with Nordeste (SS)]. She is pregnant by Nordeste (SS) – a grandson of Firme (SA) thus increasing the consanguinity on this fabulous stallion – due give birth on middle October, 2006.
