Photo of the day: Breek, from Morocco

By Edouard Aldahdah

Posted on September 10th, 2011 in General

Here is a rare photo of the Moroccan bred 1972 stallion Breek (Burhan x Pascaline by Agres), imported to France by Jean Deleau.

Morocco has a relatively small number of Arabians, and the original nucleus comes from four countries: Egypt, France, Algeria and Tunisia. Breek is no exception: his sire is the Egyptian Burhan (Morafic x Mouna by Sid Abouhom), gift of Pres. Nasser to the King of Morocco; his maternal grandsire Agres (Sumeyr x Altise by Abel) came from Pompadour in France; his great-grandsire Ras (Kriss II x Ambria by Nasr) came from Tunisia, his great-great-grandsire Aiglon (Othello III x Kasbah II) was a race horse from France , and his great-great-granddam Naaoura was the offspring of the desert bred Kuhaylan al-Nawwaq stallion Muslimie, who had come from Syria to Morocco through Algeria, and of a Shuwaymah mare, Nafa, who was bed by the French in Algeria.

  1. There was a headshot of him or one of his sons as well in the pocketbook “Guide du Cheval Arabe en France”, lost it years ago but still remember his spectacular head – very Morafic yet different than the Egyptians.
