Rifraffs Royale Gin’s sire is Comar Gai Rifraff. In Comar Gai Rifraff's brief show career, he was presented in 2006 at the Utah Autumn Classic Region 7 show and placed 2nd in the Arabian Stallion Breeding, and 2nd in the Arabian Stallion Breeding AT.

Comar Gai Rifraff's sire, LA Shaman, is champion of many northwest halter, native costume, and driving classes.

LA Shaman's sire, Gai Parada+++/ is the only stallion to ever win a National Championship in Performance prior to a National Championship in Halter. He is 1974 Canadian National Champion Pleasure Driving, 1974 US National Champion Pleasure Driving, 1975 Canadian National Top Ten Stallion, and 1977 US National Champion Stallion. Gai Parada+++/ is a Legion of Supreme Merit award winner. Gai Parada+++/ was foaled at Gainey Fountainhead Arabains in Owatonna, MN. He did some growing up at the Minnesota ranch before being sent to the Gainey ranch in Santa Ynez, CA. Each time Mr. Gainey looked the colt over, he was even more sure he had made the right decision to own him. Gai Parada+++/ pleased his artist's eye and fit his ideal of extreme refinement, intelligence, delightful disposition, elegance, and an exciting overall desert type. These qualities are still cherished today by breeders who continue to utilize the Gai Parada+++/ blood. Sterling White, who trained and showed Gai Parada+++/ to his three National Championships, found him to be willing and responsive. Parada quickly figured out exactly what was expected of him, and then tried very hard to perform. "The communication between us became so sensitive that I could just look at him and he knew what I wanted," Sterling recalls. They started with performance training; pleasure driving turned out to be his forte. Sterling remembers conditioning him in the buggy six miles per day, six days a week, as part of his driving training. In the show ring, judges concurred with Mr. Gainey's assessment of Gai Parada+++/, as he won championships and reserves in pleasure driving and English pleasure. When Gai Parada+++/ was six, he impressed both the judges and the crowds at the 1974 U.S. and Canadian Nationals, and he took home two National Championship Pleasure Driving titles. Daniel J. Gainey took over the operation of Gainey Fountainhead Arabians in 1975 when his father became ill. Dan recalls, "I just knew Gai Parada+++/ was a great horse, and soon after I took over, I decided he was good enough that we should put him on the campaign trail. He ranked up a slew of Championships and Reserves and finished off 1975 as a Canadian National Top Ten Stallion. In 1977, Lady Anne Lytton judged him Supreme Horse of the Minnesota All-Arabian Show. And sure enough, he went all the way, becoming the 1977 U.S. National Champion Stallion. With three National Championships, Gai Parada+++/ retired to the Santa Ynez ranch to further his career as a breeding stallion. This is where Parada really left his mark on the Arabian world. Six Parada foals were born in 1972 -- three colts and three fillies -- four of them bred by Daniel C. Gainey. He tried Parada with four of his choice mares: Gai-Gay-Ferzona (Ferzon x Arachne by Desmoin), Gavrelle (Ferzon x Gajala by *Raffles), Galatia (*Royal Diamond x Galata by Ferneyn), and Ferzona (Ferzon x Raffwe by Raffey). Marianna Hannah of Mountain Center, CA, sent her Comet daughter *Pallada (x Pandora by Wielki Szlem), and Mr. and Mrs. Raymond D. Anderson of Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, sent Giralda (Regis x Joraba by Al Farabi). Five foals were born in 1973, 12 in 1974, 21 in 1975, and 37 in 1976. The numbers increased each year thereafter. In his lifetime Gai Parada sired 459 foals.

Gai Parada+++/ was sired by the great stallion Ferzon. Ferzon was bred by Frank McCoy and foaled at the same time as FADJUR on the McCoy Ranch. McCoy listed both stallions for sale with FADJUR's price at $700 and Ferzon's price at $10,000, not dreaming anyone could come up with that kind of money during that time. McCoy then showed Ferzon in 1953 at the Palm Desert, CA First Annual All Arabian Show to Reserve Champion Stallion. At that same show Ferneyn, Ferzon's sire, took Grand Championship.  Moneyna, the dam of Ferneyn, was named Reserve Champion Mare, while Hasa, a half sister to Ferneyn by Ferseyn, was the Grand Champion Mare. That same year Ferzon also won the Long Beach, CA Yearling Colt Championship, San Diego, CA Desert Arabian Association Yearling Colt Championship (again he place 2nd to his own sire Ferneyn in the Stallion Championship). In August of 1953 Ferzon was Reserve Champion Yearling Colt with FADJUR placing 4th. In September of 1953 Ferzon was the Champion Yearling Colt at the Los Angeles County Fair. Then came Daniel Gainey, Sr, with $10,000 to purchase Ferzon and to produce a distinctive look to Arabians that many people now call the Gainey-look.


Gai Parada+++/'s granddam, Fersara, was Pacific Coast Champion Mare 1952, 1953 and Reserve Champion Mare 1954. NEVER OUT OF THE RIBBONS - 27 Classes (21 Blues). 3 time Grand Champion - Pomona Fall Show. Permanent Winner - Kellogg Challenge Trophy. Fersara was considered The Champion Mare, and was Always The Horse To Beat.

Comar Gai Rifraff carries many lines to Azraff. Azraff was a sire of numerous winners including Comar Bay Beau+++ out of Rose Of Mirage (1968 Canadian National Champion Stallion and 1972 Canadian Reserve National Champion Western Pleasure); Camiraff++ out of Veishea (1969 US Reserve Champion Futurity Colt); Galizon out of Gay-Rose (1969 US National Champion Stallion); Lea Baron+ out of Lea Geymette (1973 US National Champion Futurity Colt); AZA Destiny out of Bint Bass Hisan (1981 Canadian Reserve National Champion). Azraff was grandsire of Gai Parada+++/ by Ferzon out of the Azraff daughter Azleta. Extensive list of Top Ten Winners: Adios+++ out of Rose-Of-Cherry; AZA Destiny; Azrhand out of Handeyna; Banouz out of Nejd Banou; Bolsoya Bachelor out of Rapanzel; Camiraff++; Comar Bay Beau+++; Comar Bay Brummel++ out of Rose Of Mirage; Comar Dorrah out of Rafleymira; Comar Garnet out of Rafleymira; Dar Es Salaam out of Al-Marah Indra; Gai-Apache out of Ga-Rageyma; Gai-Gay-Rose out of Gay-Rose; Galizon; Gay-Rouge out of Gay-Rose; Kanadea out of Karin; Kharaff out of Kharasaba; Marqeza out of Marjura; Mirraff out of Mirzona; and Rose Of Azraff out of Rose Of Comar.

LA Shaman's dam Arifa Beau Azja, was the daughter of Bay Rouge, a son of Gay-Rouge. Gay-Rouge, sired by Azraff, was a Regional Top Ten in Pleasure Driving. Arifa Beau Azja's dam Beau Heiress, is a daughter of Comar Bay Beau+++. Comar Bay Beau+++ was 1968 US National Champion Stallion, Reserve US National Champion Western Pleasure, and was a Regional Champion in English Pleasure.

Azraff's granddam, *Rifala, was both an English and American Champion. She won several times in England and was champion mare at the National Arabian Show in Nashville, Tenn., in 1933. *Rifala was also registered in the Jockey Club book as No. 5465

Comar Gai Rifraff carries many lines to the Crabbet stallion *Raffles. *Raffles was bred by Crabbet Arabian Stud, Sussex, England, was imported from England to United States of America in 1932 by Roger A. Selby, Portsmouth, Ohio.  (*Raffles was a gift from Lady Wentworth to the Selby children, as he was believed to be sterile). In 1937, at age 11, he was brought back to fertility by the Selby Stud Manager, Jimmy Dean and his wife, Thelma, primarily through exercise. In 1949, when he was 23, *Raffles was nearly lost to the breed when he broke a hind leg above the hock. Jimmy Dean and his son, Pete, rigged a special sling that supported the stallion enough to let the leg heal. The prepotency of the *Raffles type (Ali Pasha Sherif type - classy, bold motion, density of bone and stamina) fixed Arabian type for American breeders for generations. By 1981, 65 percent of the U.S. National Champions and Reserves had one or more crosses to *Raffles.

Comar Gai Rifraff's dam is Maur Kemaal. Maur Kemaal is a Blue Star, Asil, Al Khamsa mare, Tail Male: Jamil El Kebir (APK), Tail Female: *Al Hamdaniah. She is currently competing in Endurance placing well with perfect health scores and being awarded Best Condition. Maur Kemaal is also training in Dressage. She has produced talented Endurance horses such as Fadila Rajamaal and Kashmirii Fadmar. Kashmirii Fadmar in her first two races came in 4th against seasoned horses and 2nd place with an even more seasoned race group respectively. Fadila Rajamaal's first foal, DSZ Weayaya (by the Endurance producing stallion Muscastar Son) was purchased to be used as a foundation broodmare for the Chaney Endurance Arabians herd, as well as acquiring many Endurance miles herself.

Rifraffs Royale Gin is out of the mare Nacacijin DSZ. Nacacijin DSZ is sired by the Endurance bred stallion NapayshniNapayshni's sire, Muscastar Son, sired several Tevis Cup competitors, known to be the toughest and harshest race in the world racing 100 miles in one day through rough terrain. Muscaczar (AERC#: H39221)  completed the Tevis Cup in 2007. Musca Tiger Jack (AERC#: H35955) completed the Tevis Cup in 2009 and again in 2011 in just 15 hours. Muscarose (AERC#: H38459) placed 1st in every race in 2010 but one, where she placed 2nd. SH Pistol Pete (AERC#: H36577) is also a very accomplished endurance gelding with his racing career still building today. Muscastar Son has also sired some accomplished halter horses such as:  Khyas Br Dream & VQ Takkara Dawn.

Muscastar Son's daughter Nattalena has foaled some fabulous champion Reiners. Her filly Sage Hill Honey Bunny was 2012 Champion Half Arab Reining Horse AT at the AHASC Fall Show, Champion Reining horse in the Half Arab 55th Annual Scottsdale Show in 2010, Champion Reining horse at the Autumn Classic Arab show in 2009, AHAA Fall Festival Champion Reining horse 2009, Region 3 Championship Reserve Champion Reining horse 2009, Treasure Valley Classic Regions 3 & 4 Champion Reining horse 2009 and Treasure Valley Classic Qualifier Champ 2008 & 2007.

SH Cockadudealou was 2013 Region 4  Reining Jr Horse Reserve Champion, 2013 US National Reining Horse Futurity 5 & Under Top 10 & Reining Jr Horse Top 10.

Muscastar Son's sire Muscastar (by *Muscat) is a Scottsdale Reserve Champion Junior Colt & a Junior Champion Colt. Muscastar is also the first *Muscat son to sire a national winner. Muscastar sired World Champion Mares Crown Muscosa and Evening Starr in addition to Thanks Ta Doc, National Champion and 3X National Top Ten Hunter Pleasure; Muscofir, Reserve National Champion Futurity colt; Hesitationn, 3X National Top Ten Jumper; Torastar, Regional Champion Dressage.

Muscastar's sire, *Muscat was the first Arabian to win US, Canadian & Scottsdale Champion Stallion (Triple Crown) in the same year, and was full brother to *Moment. His Performance offspring are legendary, winning National & International titles in every discipline from every level of English & Western competition to Reining, Cutting, Dressage & Endurance. *Muscat was the youngest stallion ever utilized for breeding at the world-famous Tersk Stud. The acquisition of *Muscat from the Russians was no easy task as Howard Kale Jr. took over a dozen trips to Tersk and had to trade two of America’s finest Standardbred stallions valued at $1 million dollars each for him. When *Muscat was sold to Howard Kale, Jr., the Russians quickly went to Bulgaria to get *Moment back and continue the line at Tersk Stud. *Muscat has achieved legendary status as the main continuer of the Naseem sire line. *Muscat combines the essence and elegance of Naseem with the athleticism and soundness of the Priboj sire line through Malpia a daughter of Mamonna by Ofir.

Muscastar’s dam is Miss Century, a daughter of the world famous crabbet stallion Ga’Zi (by Abu Farwa).  Miss Century was US National Champion Futurity Mare 1966, Canadian National Reserve Champion Mare 1967, World Aristocrat Mare, dam of 4 Champions, among them Silver Century++, Silver Caprice, and Muscastar. Miss Century's dam, Wahida was also a World Aristocrat Mare.

Ga'Zi was 1954 Oregon All-Arab Champion Stallion, 1954 Pacific Slope Reserve Champion Stallion; at the 1967 Canadian Nationals, all four Championships and Reserves went to Ga'Zi get.

Muscastar Son's dam, Zos Kaborrette, was by Kaborr+++, Canadian National Champion Stallion in Halter, Canadian National Champion Western Pleasure, 2X US National Reserve Champion Stallion, and European Champion Stallion; sire of Kajora, US National Champion Mare; AAA Khyborr, US National Champion & 2X Top Ten Hunter Pleasure and 2X National Top Ten Working Hunter; Kaborray+++, 8X Regional Champion Stallion & Western; Kaflash+++/, Regional winner in Halter, Western Dressage; plus many more.

Kaborr+++ was also awarded the Sire Of Significance Award.

Zos Kaborrette was out of the Gai-Adventure daughter, Zo.  A Sire of Significance, Gai-Adventure was 1973 US National Reserve Champion Stallion, 1974 US National Champion Stallion, US National Top Ten Pleasure Driving. Gai-Adventure is half sibling to US and Canadian National Champion Stallion *Aramus (*Naborr x Amneris), imported from Michalow State Stud Farm, Poland to be the foundation Stallion for Wayne Newton's Arabians and half siblings *Gwalior (*Naborr x Gwadiana), Canadian National Champion Stallion and *Dornaba++, U.S. National Champion Mare and Reserve National Champion English Pleasure. Zo’s dam, Zonna was by the great stallion Ferzon.

*Naborr is one of eight World Sires of Significance who have sons who are Sires of Significance. (*Gwalior, *Aramus, Kaborr+++, and Gai-Adventure). In 1954 *Naborr was named Reserve National Champion at the All Union Agricultural Fair in Moscow. (Winner of that class was his sire, Negatiw.) *Naborr sold at age 19 for $150,000 and in 1963 *Naborr was imported to USA by Anne McCormick, traveling on the same boat with *Bask.

Napayshni's dam, SA Glitz, had a brief career in Halter herself being 1999 Treasure Valley Classic Most Classic Head Champion, 1999 Treasure Valley 5th Place Breeding Mare and 1999 Autumn Classic 3rd Place Breeding Mare.

SA Glitz's sire, SA Solid Gold is sired by Muscastar and is out of an *Elkin++ daughter Tanya NA. *Elkin++ was bred in Poland and was imported to the USA in 1971. He was US National Top Ten Stallion in 1971 and was US National Champion Stallion in 1972. *Elkin++ also has his Legion of Merit. Tanya NA's dam Tusen Takk is by Ferzon.

*Elkin++ was sired by Aquinor. Aquinor was bred by Klemensow Stud, Poland and had a race record of 1/9(2-0-6). He was one of the greatest Polish sires, known as the ´Sire of Champions´. Sired *Tryptyk, *Eleuzis and Elf (full brothers) used in Poland and *Exelsjor (Swedish National Champion Stallion), Mors exported to DDR, *Elkin++ (US National Champion Stallion) and *Grawer (US National Top Ten Park) used abroad.

SA Glitz's dam, Gamunet, is by the US National Top Ten Halter stallion Gamuzon, who is a Ferzon son. She is also out of Rani Elektra, a very heavily Seneyn & Skowronek bred mare, who is tail female to the great *Urfah, a Saqlawi Al Abd mare of the Shammar, by a Saqlawi Jedran. *Urfah is also tail female ancestress of the Saqlawi Davenports.

Napayshni
carries multiple lines to Skowronek through both daughters and sons, one of great note is *Raseyn. *Raseyn was the first stallion by Skowronek to come to the US. He was a regular feature in the Kellogg Sunday Show, being trained first as a jumper, then for five-gates as which he was fairly fast at the rack, though not quite with the speed and form of a Saddlebred. He had a natural slow gait, which he performed with style, and a slow and graceful canter. *Raseyn was Champion Arabian at the Los Angeles County Fair in 1933 and Champion Arabian Stallion at the Los Angeles National Horse Show. He maintained his beautiful dark dappling for many years and the white of his coat had the silvery sheen so typical of the Skowronek horses. *Raseyn lived out the last years of his life with Alice Payne at her Asil Ranch near Chino, California, and died there following a stroke on May 19, 1952. He was 29 years old at the time of his death.

Nacacijin DSZ
has several lines to *Mirage through her sire Napayshni as well. Roger Selby’s main purchase in 1930 was *Mirage, an imported grey stallion of the Seglawi Jedran Dalia strain, the most prized of the Seglawi strains. Lady Wentworth described him as ‘a very showy good horse. Excellent legs, splendid quarters and fine front. Very good in saddle but too bouncing for English taste as he gets English riders off.’ But this was not the reason *Mirage was sold. Weatherbys had by now closed their Stud Book to new imports and although Lady Wentworth tried to persuade them to accept *Mirage, she was unsuccessful and therefore had no option but to sell him. Margaret Lindsley Warden said of *Mirage: “now rated by many experts as the most perfect specimen of the ancient elite or classic type in America…He stands a scant 14.2hh, a sturdy model with the characteristic refinements of the best of his breed. His head is a glory and his great eyes express high but gentle spirit and gracious personality.” *Mirage was English Champion at the Richmond Royal Show 1926, and American Champion at the National Arabian Show, Nashville, TN 1934, at the age of 25. A most unique honor for a horse of such remarkable age. Only one other horse, Mr. Selby’s mare Champion Rifala, holds the same record of being both a British and American Champion.

One of the lines to *Mirage is through his son Rifage. Rifage drove cattle on the Van Vleets’ Lazy VV Ranch near Boulder, Colorado, at an elevation of 8,600 feet. Rifage was said to be small, but with the ruggedness and grace of tens of hundreds of generations of pure Arabian breeding behind him…Rifage weighs 850 pounds. Frequently, his rider and equipment will weigh 250 or 275 pounds, or one third of gallant Rifage’s own poundage. He doesn’t falter–he doesn’t stumble on that trail. When the pack train stops to “blow” in the rare air, Rifage disdains the opportunity to catch his breath. When Rifage wasn’t out riding the range, he was used in the breeding shed, siring a number of National winners, including Rominna, US National Champion Mare, and US National Top Ten winners Rishima, Shihada and Sulyman.

Nacacijin DSZ's dam is RroyaleeRroyalee is by the Endurance producing stallion Royale Bay. Royale Bay himself was shown in a very short arena career before he sustained a shoulder injury limiting any more showing or a riding career. Royale Bay was never out of the ribbons during his career. Royale Bay produce several outstanding Endurance horses, among them being Paladin aka: Regalidon (AERC#:H29619), and Edens Bay Rum (AERC#:16105), both very accomplished endurance horses as well as both completing the Tevis Cup (Regalidon placed 26th in 2000, 9th in 2001, and Edens Bay Rum placed 11th in 2002).

Royale Bay is by the U.S. and Canadian National Champion Hunt Pleasure AOTR and Top Ten Hunt Pleasure Crown Royale, whose halter wins include regional championships and a Scottsdale Top Ten title. Crown Royale has sired such National winners as Tollies Crown (who has 9 National wins including titles in halter, english pleasure and pleasure driving), U.S. Top Ten Hunt Pleasure AOTR and Show Hack MR Royal+/, U.S. and Canadian Top Ten Hunt Pleasure AOTR 18-39 GA Khemo Dacious, U.S. Reserve National Champion Hunt Pleasure JTR 13/Under U.S. and Canadian Top Ten Western Pleasure AOTR Bask Kaleed, and Canadian Reserve National Champion Hunt Pleasure and Hunt Pleasure AOTR 18-39 Crown Regente+/. Crown Royale was bred by Dr Howard Kale, one of America's most innovative breeders who imported horses from England, Poland, and Russia to create his breeding program.

Crown Royale is by *Bask++*Bask++ is the only stallion to be a U.S. National Champion Stallion and Park Horse and is the breed's all time leading sire of champions and National winners, as well as National winner producers. Bred by Albigowa State Stud, Poland. *Bask++ began his race training in Poland at the age of two. He remained in the racing program for a full four years. Out of 40 races, he placed first eight times, second seven times and was third seven times. *Bask++ was exported in 1963 to Lasma Arabians, USA where he became 1964 Scottsdale Champion Stallion, 1964 Scottsdale Champion Park (3-gaited), 1964 US National Champion Stallion, 1964 US National Top Ten Park, 1965 Spokane Reserve Champion Park, 1965 US National Champion Park, 1965 was awarded his Legion of Merit, 1966 Scottsdale Champion Park, 1967 US National Reserve Champion Formal Driving, 1967 US National Reserve Champion Formal Combination, *Bask++ was awarded the Legion Of Supreme Honor.

Crown Royale is out of Canadian National Champion Mare Jewel Drift, dam of 6 champions including U.S. Top Ten Mare Crown Amber. Jewel Drift is by the Crabbet import *Silver Drift, sire of 18 National winners and over 25 producers of national winners. *Silver Drift is a full brother to the all time leading Crabbet sire of champions, *Serafix, and a maternal brother to U.S. National Champion Park *Oran Van Crabbet. Jewel Drift's dam, U.S. National Champion Mare and Reserve National Champion English Pleasure *Dornaba++, is a Polish import. She produced only 3 foals, but all produced National winners. Her other foals are Canadian National Champion Pleasure Driving Rossidor (sire of U.S. National Champion Western Pleasure Royal Lite+/) and halter champion Silver Monarch (a full brother to Jewel Drift and sire of U.S. National Champion Western Pleasure El Silmon).

*Silver Drift
’s sire was Raktha, a British Champion in 1948 and sire of numerous champions and National winner producers. Raktha was foaled in 1934 at the Hanstead Stud and was purchased by Lady Wentworth in 1939.  Raktha and Indian Gold (sire of *Serafix's dam *Serafina) were regarded as two of the most important stallions at the Cabbet stud during World War II.  Raktha traces back to Naseem and Skowronek and was an extremely beautiful dark dapple grey, slightly heavy in body but still deserving of the British Champion Stallion Title at age 14 in 1948.  Raktha was regarded as being very different in temperament from his sire NaseemRaktha was quiet and easy, a type of horse that was good to take to a show.  This stallion was regarded as one of the very few perfect types of Arabian stallion.  (The Cabbet Arabian Stud, Its History & Influence by Rosemary Archer, Colin Pearson, Cecil Covey).  Raktha is also known for his progeny besides *Serafix, such as his famous sons General Grant out of Lady Yules' Samsie, and Indian Magic out of Indian Crown.  Famous daughters were Silverlet (out of Silver Gilt) who went to South Africa along with Bint Razeena.  Another daughter, *Silwa, is an American Halter Champion and dam of four champions. *Silwa produced *Silwara, a dam of four National winners including the Canadian National Champion Stallion Tornado.  Other famous sons include *Silver Drift (full brother to *Serafix) and Indian Magic, a British National Champion Stallion.

*Silver Drift’s dam was the ethereal mare *Serafina. *Serafina was foaled in 1945 and was considered one of the great mares that led to the resurgence of the Crabbet Stud after the war. *Serafina’s sire, Indian Gold, was one of Crabbet’s premier stallions. Lady Wentworth’s breeding program was rooted on the crossing of the Mesaoud and Skowronek bloodlines whenever possible. Not all of Lady Wentworth’s stallions were shown to gain notoriety. Travel was largely by rail and to risk valuable bloodlines to injury of worse was not worth it. One of those stallions that was not shown was Indian Gold, being tail male descendent of Skowronek through *Raswan and Ferhan, this stallion gained his value as a sire through his offspring and particularly through his daughters. *Serafix was *Serafina’s first foal and *Silver Drift was a full brother; both were sired by Raktha and imported to the US. *Serafina was over 15 hands which was felt o be due to several crosses to *Nureddin. She was a brilliant, iridescent chestnut which she bequeathed to *Serafix. She had very little white. A quote out of The Arabian Horse, September 1976, an article by Dick Warner, comments on *Serafina: “She is exceptionally good up front with a very long neck, well joined on; good withers and a typy head. She is elegant. She has a deep hip and good legs and a splendid top line. In short, she is an excellent Arabian mare, with few obvious faults of conformation or type.” *Serafina was sold in 1960 to Mr. S.G. Bennett of Georgetown, Ontario and foaled *Bright Gold in 1961. Mr. Bennett continued breeding *Serafina on is Arabian farm and she was later purchased by Mr. Paul Brown in 1970. *Serafina had her last foal in 1972; she lived to be 31 years old and died July 12, 1976.

Royale Bay is out of the Mekeel bred mare MHR Port BajaMHR Port Baja's sire is Port Bask, the leading sire of Champions by *Bask++. Port Bask is pure Polish. He was considered to be the best producing *Bask++ son and was especially known for passing on his extreme athletic ability. Port Bask produced many outstanding show horses such as: Sierra Baskita, US National Top Ten mare in Halter; Portaleah with regional wins in English Pleasure and Country English Pleasure; Portallasa, a National Champion producing dam; the dressage stallion MHR Sabre; MHR Port Macja, listed as the top Arabian mare in the US and the World; MHR Port Giesha, multiple regional wins in English Pleasure, Park, Sidesaddle and Halter.

Rroyalee's dam is Debbani Al Hadiye. Debbani Al Hadiye is a Blue Star, Asil, Al Khamsa mare, Tail Male: Jamil El Kebir (APK), Tail Female: *Al Hamdaniah. She is linebred to the desert horses *Fadl, *Turfa and Sirecho*Fadl was bred by Prince Mohammed Ali, Manial Stud, Egypt., Imported from Egypt to United States of America in 1932 by Henry B. Babson, Chicago, Illinois. Sire of seventy-four registered purebred Arabian foals (34 of which were Straight Babson Egyptians). The stallion *Fadl was used as a polo pony and as an endurance mount, besides being a successful show ring competitor in both halter and performance, as well as working on the farm pulling the feed wagon and manure spreader. Modern Arabian breeding owes much to the Babson Egyptian imports. The breed’s all time leading sire of champions, Afire Bey V, traces to the Babson stallion *Fadl, as do U.S. National Champion Stallions and influential sires Khemosabi++++// and Ali Jamaal, multi-National Champion Park Aequus+/, *Simeon Shai+ (the only stallion to ever be named U.S. and Canadian National Champion Stallion and World Champion Stallion), multi-National Champion Dressage El Bahim Halawa+, and multi-National Champion English Pleasure Empress Of Bask, to name just a few prominent horses who carry the Babson influence. Of *Fadl's 74 registered get, 34 were Babson Egyptian. Eleven of *Fadl's get produced National winners. The six *Fadl sons who have sired National winners are: Fa-Serr, Fabah, Ibn Fadl, Fa-Turf and Fadheilan (sire of twice U.S. Reserve National Champion Stallion Fadjur, one of the most influential stallions in American Arabian breeding in the twentieth century). *Fadl's National-winner producing daughters are Arafay, Fa-Rahna, Dinah, Faaba and Turfara. Turfa was bred by the Saudi Royal Family (His Majesty King Ibn Saoud) in the Royal Stud at Khorma, Nejd - Central (Saudi) Arabia. Strain: Kuhaylat al-Ajuz, from the stud of Al Khorma in Saudi Arabia. She was presented to King George VI of England as a coronation gift in 1937. Henry B. Babson acquired her from the Prince of Wales and imported her into the United States of America in 1941.

*Fadl was by Ibn Rabdan, one of the most popular and heavily used stallions in Egypt. Carl Raswan considered Ibn Rabdan as a "world champion" type.  Jack Humphreys, who selected Arabians in Egypt for W.R. Brown, described Ibn Rabdan as "almost perfect".  *Fadl's dam, Mahroussa, was epitomized as one of the most beautiful mares of her time.  Mahroussa was the daughter of Mabrouk Manial and Negma, both classic Arabians of exceptional quality.  Mahroussa also produced such horses as *Zarife, *HH Mohamed Alis Hamida, *HH Mohamed Alis Hamama and *Maaroufa, *Fadl's full sister.

Sirecho was regarded by Carl Raswan as having gone down in American-Arabian history as one of the important foundation sires. Also stating that he is one of the few who have become responsible for salvaging the completely PURE Arabian in America from extinction.  Because of his acquisition by Mrs. Ott, Sirecho became one of the few sources of Straight Egyptian lines which remains an outstanding outcross for most pedigrees in which more popular Egyptians were used far more frequently and far less judiciously. He was not stood at public stud, Mrs. Ott handpicked the mares bred to him resulting in a relatively small, but high quality band of foals. A family of remarkable longevity, they are also highly prolific, still producing easily into their late twenties. As beautiful as they are athletic, the Sirecho descendants speak for themselves: Joramir 1968 U.S. Top Ten English Pleasure and Native Costume, 20 Class A Halter and performance Championships; Jora Honey Ku 1978 Canadian National Champion; VP Kahlua 1984 U.S. and Canadian National Champion Mare; AK Sirhalima Australian Leading Sire of Champions; Anchor Hill Halim German multi Champion and Endurance winner; Anchor Hill Omar South African National Champion; Anchor Hill Annah U.S. Top Ten Trail Champion; Ses Khebira Egyptian Event and Salon Du Cheval winner; *Simeon Shai U.S. and Canadian National Champion Stallion, along with such notables as Glorietta Gaazal and Akid Geshan. The black Sirecho granddaughter Shar Gemla is influential in pedigrees of many black show champions of the Arabians of “The Black Stallion” movie fame.

Sirecho’s dam, *Exochorda (also known as Leila II and Marquita in Egypt) was known as a beautiful, powerfully built, and exceedingly correct Purebred Arabian racing mare. Much controversy swirls around her importation, birth date, and even her entries in the RAS. Few, if any, can deny the impact she had on the Arabian breed. *Exochorda was a Saqlawi mare born in Egypt in the early part of the 1920’s. A demure mare, she stood only 14.2 hands high and weighed about 825 pounds. Her sire, the stallion known as Aiglon, and her dam, Leila I, were both pure desertbreds who had been imported into Egypt directly from the Arabian desert by private breeders. According to Carl Raswan, both parents were acquired through the Argheyl Muhammed Ibn Marzuki of Bureyda Quasim. All three, Aiglon, Leila I and Leila II, raced in the Purebred Division on the Cairo racetrack, under the scrupulous eye of the Jockey Club Committee, headed by Dr. Branch. Raswan stated that Prince Kemal El Dine “used to call *Exochorda (Leila II) the female counter-part of Mesaoud”.

Sirecho’s sire, *Nasr, was imported into the U.S. in 1932 by Mr. W.R. Brown. *Nasr was bred by Prince Mohammed Ali. He was a stunning white bold and powerful stallion.*Nasr had a remarkable racing career in Egypt prior to his importation. Standing 15 hands high and weighing 1,000 pounds, he is recorded as having a girth of 70 inches with 7.5 inches of bone. His foals were exported to countries all over the world, including England, Brazil, Guatemala, Columbia and Venezuela.
