by Theresa Cardamone with Jeff Wallace The development of the Arabian horse in Brazil has had a profound effect on the evolution of the contemporary Arabian horse. The exceptional stallions that dedicated Brazilian breeders have gathered from all over seem to have flourished there, producing subsequent generations of sons and daughters genetically charged to reproduce the finest qualities of their heritage. International breeders capitalized on the splendid results by importing Brazilian breeding to their own countries. In a testament to the superb quality of Arabian horses being produced in Brazil today, the stunning 2014 Brazilian National Champion Stallion El Tino was the talk of the show again this year, this

time due to his amazing success as a sire. By six-time National Champion DA Valentino, El Tino’s offspring won two national championships and three national reserve championships from the eight divisions offered in a very impressive showing! Winners were selected by an international judging panel composed of Scott Brumfield (USA), Leslie Connor (USA), Rodrigo Foz Forte (Brazil), Luiz Antonio Rocco (Brazil), and Irina Stigler (Russia). National titles were awarded in four male and four female divisions; Junior Junior Champion Filly and Colt (6 to 12mo.), Junior Champion Filly and Colt (12 to 18mo.), Champion Filly and Colt (18 to 36 mo.), and Champion Mare and Stallion (36 mos. and older).

The youngest Brazilian National Champions were both foals of 2015, with HDF Baronesa (HDF Lugano x Xandu El Perseus) winning the Champion Junior Junior Filly honors. Another HDF Lugano offspring to earn a well-deserved title was his son HDF Tareef, who was named Reserve Champion in the slightly older Junior Colt division. Rancho Arabco had a very big show, in large part due to the previously mentioned El Tino. They won the Junior Junior Colt title with Dominus Arabco (El Tino x Shavanna El Madan) and the Reserve Champion Junior Junior Filly honors with his full sister, Shiva Arabco. They also won the Reserve Champion Mare title with the exquisite Tina El Madan (El Tino x Grace LM), one of her sire’s finest daughters to date. Also representing El Tino were his son Falak FK, who was named the Champion Junior Colt and his paternal sister KissMe El Madan, who won the Reserve National Champion Filly title. In a poignant moment, legendary Brazilian breeder Jamil Saliba was posthumously honored with a Lifetime Achievement award in a stirring ceremony. The breeder of scores of national champions in both halter and performance, Jamil Saliba was a strong supporter of Arabian racing from its onset. His passion for Arabian horses lives on through his sons Paulo and Ricardo and the breeding program at Rach Stud. As if to prove the ongoing excellence of the horses produced there, Imhotep Rach (RHR Marcedes x Isis Rach) won the Reserve Champion Junior Junior Colt title. Rach Stud was also honored with awards in Most Classic Head and Produce of Dam in a genuine tribute to Jamil Saliba’s continuing impact on the breed in Brazil.

National Champion Aladdinn. Sweet Satisfaction’s dam RA Nefertiti (Produce of Dam Champion), also produced her full brother Gran Osiris, the Reserve Champion Colt. The exquisite choice for National Champion Mare, FT Havanna El Keav, is also a daughter of HK Keav Power, who continues to carry on his legacy as a truly significant sire. FT Havanna El Keav’s dam Hillary VCM is a Magnum Psyche daughter who carries two crosses to the legendary Khemosabi. The Champion Filly and Champion Colt titles were won by two-year olds Miúcha El Shawan JQ, a daughter of FA El Shawan and Guama El Power JQ, and HP Ali, a son of HP Shakir TE and HP Miranda. The stallion championship is always eagerly awaited, and this year was no exception. The crowd roared its approval when Wandan El Madan was led to the Brazilian National Champion Stallion title. Wandan is by the phenomenal sire and 2015 United States National Champion Stallion OFW Magic Wan, himself a son of the Sire of the Century, Marwan Al Shaqab. Only three years old, Wandan El Madan shared the spotlight with the nine-year old Marwan Al Shaqab son Matisse FM, who was named the Reserve National Champion Stallion. It was a fitting climax to a memorable event that effectively showcased the excellence of the Brazilian Arabian horse.

Champion Junior Filly FHJ Vania is by the elegant 2-time United States National Champion AAS Elishahh, a perfect example of how Brazilian breeding is desired in programs around the world. Elishahh is currently standing at Jadem Arabians in Belgium. FHJ Vania had to be on the top of her game in order to win, due to the deep quality in the class, and she came through beautifully. The Reserve Champion Junior Filly Sweet Satisfaction is a daughter of Brazilian National Champion HK Keav Power, whose grandsire World Series was a U.S. National Reserve Champion Futurity Colt sired by U.S. National Champion Strike, himself a son of U.S.
