Anglo-Arabian VGnome 

The first and only comprehensive Anglo-Arabian genomic test in the world. 

Our patented breed-specific genome test for Anglo-Arabians could be the most important investment you make this year.

We analyze Arabian and Thoroughbred lineages to provide you with a comprehensive understanding of your horses health and performance.

Unlike other equine genetic tests, we test the entirety of your horse’s genome, which means all of the DNA is analyzed, not just a small fraction.

Our breed-specific report gives you genetic insights that delve deeper than any other test on the market. We analyze how your horse is likely to respond to training, stabling and competition – to help you develop effective strategies for preventing and managing injuries.

Additionally, our test can uncover rare markers that might be missed by traditional DNA testing and mutations that might warrant further analysis.

By testing your horse’s whole genome, you can stay on top of new genetic discoveries without ever having to go through the hassle of retesting your horse.

One investment for a lifetime!

What’s included in the Anglo-Arabian report?

Health Panel

Identify horses at risk for genetic diseases and health conditions that can be prevented. 

Example

This horse is a carrier of Cerebellar Abiotrophy. Cerebellar Abiotrophy is the most reported brain disease in horses. This condition is caused by the loss of brain cells (called Purkinje cells) in the cerebellum (the part of the brain that controls a horse’s sensory perception and the ability to coordinate physical movements). 

Performance Panel

Identify horses with the potential to excel in specific disciplines.

Example

This horse has the G’ variant of the ACOX1 gene. 
Horses with this variant are better able to make the acyl-coenzyme A oxidase 1 enzyme, enabling them to efficiently use fat for fuel. This gives ACOX1 GG horses an advantage in endurance and long-distance sports. 

Color Panel

By testing for coat color heritability, Anglo-Arabian horse breeders can build on their knowledge of genetics and apply it to their breeding program.

Example

This horse is homozygous black (EE) and carries two copies of the black allele (EE). Regardless of the mate, this horse will always produce black foals.

Ancestry Panel

Prove a horse’s lineage and to find out its closest genetic relatives. Testing is in accordance with the requirements of the International Stud Book Committee (ISBC).

Example

This horse is genetically related to a subgroup of horses known today as ‘Egyptian.’ Three to five percent of all Arabian horses belong to this lineage. Egyptian horses are often highly prized in non-ridden horse shows, where they are required to exhibit specific conformation traits.

Evidence-based and actionable recommendations on breeding and training from our team of experts

Unparalleled whole genome coverage and one of the most extensive ranges of genetic variants in a single test.

Uniform coverage of the entire nuclear genome (>20,000 genes) and mitochondrial genome, with >97% of the genome covered at ≥10x.

The only genetic testing company that provides a comprehensive multi-page report on Anglo-Arabian horses that can be used to guide health, training, breeding, and welfare decisions now and in the future.

Testing is as easy as mailing a postcard, thanks to our pre-paid packaging kit.

Each horse’s data is only available to you and is banked securely in the VG (Victory Genomics) Database.
