The horse is from Turkmenistan and is renowned for its speed, endurance, intelligence and distinctive sheen. When galloping, the blood coursing through the veins is visible for its thin fur. As a result, it is also called "Blood Sweating Horse" in China.

There are around 2,000 thoroughbreds worldwide. YEMA, who has over 200, is the world's largest individual owner of the horse.
