El Paso was chief progenitor of Kuhailan Haifi or.Ar - Wielki Szlem branch in Poland. He was used in the Polish breeding program in 1972-1975 at Michalów Stud and 1979-1981 at Janów Podlaski Stud. In 1976 he was Scottsdale Champion Stallion and US National Champion Stallion when on lease to Lasma Arabians. He was in the U.S.A. on a three year lease deal between the years 1976-1978. El Paso's stud fee was $5,000 in 1976. Despite grand offers from the US, Poland refused to sell him. It was not until 1981, with a check of $1000,000 and big enough to make Poland (as well as the rest of the world) gasp, Dr. Armand Hammer purchased the handsome bay stallion. Upon his return to the United States, El Paso stood at Town & Country Farms in Florida where he was promoted as a race sire. El Paso died in 1995, at the age of 28 of cancer.
