DNA Shows Wrong Stallion Purchased

This sucks.... A man paid hundreds of thousands of dollars for a stallion, Dubai Excellence, and a few months later a DNA test confirmed that the horse he received was the wrong horse.

MICHAEL FORD: The second round of DNA tests from two sets of hair samples proved that Dubai Excellence is not the imported stallion standing at Evergreen
DAVID WEBER: So what horse has Ted van Heemst got?
MICHAEL FORD: Well that’s the question, and we’ll be working closely with
our English counterparts, Weatherby's, to help the owners determine which
stallion really was exported and where the real Dubai Excellence is now.
