Asjah ibn Faleh

By Edouard Aldahdah

Posted on May 2nd, 2011 in Egypt

The 1974 Hadban Inzihi stallion Asjah ibn Faleh (*Faleh x *Dawlat by Anter) was the best Egyptian racehorse of all time. I am no fan of what the Egyptian horse has become today, but that was a very good horse. See the naturally arched neck, curvy throat and deep girth. He was no china doll.

Ralph Suarez’s blog has an article about his sire *Faleh, here.

  1. It might come as a surprise that this was one of the outcross stallions used by Ansata stud. He sired a few Ansata horses included Ansata Exemplar, gold medal winner at the German stallion licensing see http://www.straightegyptians.com/barn/images/ashhal_exemplar.jpg

  2. Dawlat of course was a very good producer. Her son Dalul by Morafic I believe, got very nice results as well- colts with strong substantial bodies and pretty good bone too. And their get often showed pleasing hybrid vigor in the physical manifestation, and the unexpected bonus of better more teachable psychology than either parent demonstrated. Just another reason why general list breeders can benefit greatly from adding in Asil stock.
