May 19, 2023 – Victory Genomics (VG), the world’s first and only provider of whole genome testing services for horses, has announced the launch of its groundbreaking new Arabian genomics product, delivering easy-to-understand and comprehensive reports specifically tailored to Arabian horses.
This revolutionary product is a one-stop-shop for Arabian horse enthusiasts, owners, breeders, and competitors. It includes complete testing for known Arabian genetic diseases, known Arabian genetic color and pattern variants, and Arabian performance markers. It also introduces VG’s innovative analysis of breed ancestry and inbreeding, an industry-first tool that serves as an essential resource for those concerned with Arabian heritage and conservation.
“We are excited to offer our clients the most comprehensive DNA testing available, designed specifically for Arabians,” said Mustafa Khokha, President and Co-Founder of VG. “Our new product is a game-changer for the Arabian horse community, designed to revolutionize not only the way Arabian horses are bred and trained, but how we think about the heritage and conservation of this magnificent breed.”
VG is the only equine testing provider in the world provider using whole genome sequencing to identify markers for key traits in horses, such as speed, endurance, agility, and more. Importantly VG is highly invested in using genomics to improve equine health and welfare.
“Our new Arabian genomics product is the practical output from whole-genome sequencing,” said AJ Weir, Chief Product Officer of VG. “Crucially, our reports give practical suggestions on how to use these results, whether to guide breeding decisions to avoid inbreeding and improve breed health or to improve horse welfare by training into disciplines for which they are most genetically suited. Our new product gives horse owners, breeders, trainers, vets, and other key stakeholders all the information they need in one place.”
