Region 9 Top 5 SHIH
Sakara MLM is our first second generation MLM Arabian. She is the only daughter of our beloved Regional Champion Casanova MLM (sired by our senior stallion RB Cavalier++) who was sold last year. She is out of the great Desperado V daughter, Sweet Success CV whose prolific dam line has produced international and national champions in both performance and halter. In 2018 she produced her first foal, Serendipity MLM, by ROL Intencyty. Sakara nickname was “Cutie” for her joyful personality and confidence. She was full of snort and blow, a magnetic individual from the moment she was born.
Sakara’s sire, Casanova MLM, was a regional Top 5 in SHIH and a Reserve Regional Champion SHUS in very limited showing. His sire is well represented in our program, however, he is out of WWA Hilary who we also owned. Hilary was a many time champion in halter who competed in hunter pleasure in the show ring. She was a large, powerful mare who left a high quality group of offspring here in the United States before being exported to Europe as a foundation mare for Timshel Arabians. Her tail female line can be found in the great horses of Mulawa Arabian Stud in Australia and her double dose of Bey Shah gave her perfect tail carriage and incredible charisma.
Sakara MLM’s dam, Sweet Success CV, was sired by living legend Desperado V. While Desperado V is best known as a breeding sire, he did have a successful early career in Western Pleasure and Halter. Desperado V has sired multiple National winners with numerous National Champions in many divisions including Reining, Western Pleasure, Hunter Pleasure, Halter, Dressage (through Prix St. Georges), Show Hack, and Working Cow Horse.
Desperado V is by Reserve National Champion English Pleasure and Futurity Colt Huckleberry Bey++ and out of the beautiful Daraska, an exotic granddaughter of Comet and *Bask++ with a tail female line tracing through the aristocrat mare Ghazna.
Sweet Success CV is out of the beautiful mare Knights Prelude who produced 6 exceptional foals including Sheza Serenade, Sweet Success CV’s full sibling, a Reserve Regional Champion Yearling filly out of 31 fillies.
Knights Prelude is by Bask Knight, a Buckeye Top 5 winner out of 25 stallions. Bask Knight sired multiple regional and national winners including multi Regional Champion and Reserve National Champion AAOTH mare Knights Dominion, who is a full sibling to Knights Prelude (Sweet Success’ dam).
Knights Prelude is out of Ima Sunnsation, who produced multiple champion siblings to Knights Prelude including the aforementioned Reserve National Champion Halter and successful Hunter mare Knights Dominion, Champion halter mare Knights Sultress, Scottsdale Top 10 and Regional Top 5 Halter and Hunter mare Knight Vision (who produced Reserve National Champion Mare AAOTH and Scottsdale Top 10 Mare Silver Laace).
Ima Sunnsation, Sweet Success CV’s third dam, is a full sibling to the incomparable National Champion and two time Reserve National Champion English Side Saddle stallion Bask Elect+/. Their sire is Sunn Bask++ a Multi Top 10 stallion in Formal Combination and driving with wins in stallion Halter and Park. Ima Sunnsation’s dam is the beautiful *Electric Storm (English Pleasure Champion) daughter National Top 10 Pleasure Driving mare Ima Electric+++.
Sakara MLM passed away tragically and unexpectedly on 2/25/2020. We are fortunate to have her beautiful daughter, Serendipity MLM, to carry on her legacy. “Cutie” was one-of-a-kind with her incredible charisma and yet gentle, loving demeanor. We miss her presence terribly.
