Champion Endurance Horse Cloned

The birth of the world's second horse clone has been announced by scientists. The foal is a copy of a world endurance champion, Pieraz, an animal that has been castrated and was therefore incapable of normal reproduction.
The research was undertaken by genetic engineering labs Cryozootech of Evry, France, and LTR-CIZ of Cremona, Italy, where the foal is being kept.
The World's first horse clone Prometea, was produced by the same group of researchers in 2003.
