Thorayyah, 1946 Tuwayssah mare from Bahrain

Kina Murray kindly shared with me this rare photo of the 1946 Bahraini bay mare *Thorayyah, which was recently posted by a research group on Facebook; she was bred by Sheikh Khalifah Bin Mohamed Al Khalifah, Bahrain, then imported by to the USA John Rogers of California. She was apparently by a Hathfan out a Tuwayssah.

Unfortunately, she left no asil descendants.

  1. Thank you for posting. I had not seen a photo of *Thorayyah before. I now even better understand Edie Booth’s lament that this mare did not have Asil get.

  2. All of the Rogers’ desert bred mares were a real loss to the purist community, but they had a big influence on the Arabian breed as a whole.

  3. Were the Desert mares covered by serafix? Also weren’t they and their get known as especially good movers? The Thorayyah mare above is wonderfully conformed.

  4. Looks powerful, yet elegant

  5. Thourayyah’s most well known produce was the stallion Meteor by Serafix. Meteor’s daughter Hatties Honey Ku produced Jora Honey Ku (x Joramir), sire of US National Champion mare VP Khalua as well as some racing winners. Hatties Honey Ku is also granddaam of famous racing mare Shawna Dew.
