Grand Champion current picture
This is the current picture of the Grand Champion taken 9-21-09. With the knowledge of Emilo Bautista's koi husbandry, he has taken this Momotaro Sanke and made it the Grand Champion it is today. Emilo Bautista's koi keeping skills are exceptional and is apparent in this Momotaro Sanke. This sanke has been in Emilo's pond for over 2 1/2 years and judging by the before and after photos, he has done a magnificent job. I hope that you may one day see this koi in your presence so that you may see that with the proper care, and knowledge, a male koi can win Grand Champion.
