Rhapsody in Black

Thee Desperado+ x Aliashahm RA
1994 Black Mare

On a warm August evening in 1994, Judy received the call that an especially beautiful solid black filly had been born. Judy immediately went to the farm and first laid her eyes on the refined and typey filly, Rhapsody in Black. Rhapsody is by Thee Desperado and out the Arabians Ltd. foundation mare and Ruminaja Ali daughter Aliashahm RA. Though shown sparingly, Rhapsody in Black has produced an amazing legacy with her offspring and has remained one of Judy’s most treasured mares.
In 2006, Rhapsody claimed her second year as Egyptian Event Leading Dam of Winners. She also stretched her record of producing a Champion in the Egyptian Breeders Challenge for a third consecutive year when her filly Bint Rhapsody in Black was led to the winner’s circle by Arabians Ltd. client Karl Breckon. Both of these honors are unprecedented for the Egyptian Event.

Rhapsody in Black’s foals:

Rhapsody in Black, the queen of the farm had a bay colt by Alixir in March 2015 through embryo transfer. The new arrival is a full brother to Bellagio RCA!

Qaysar Al Jood, 2013 Bay Stallion (Alixir x Rhapsody In Black)

Rhapsody in Black had a full sibling to Bellagio, Mijrah, and the other greats below for Mr. Mohamed Jaidah of Qatar, who purchased an embryo right out of this special mare! The resulting bay colt by Alixir was born in February 2013 via embryo transfer. Congratulations, Mr. Jaidah!

Bellagio RCA, Rhapsody’s first Egyptian Event Egyptian Breeders Challenge (EBC) Champion, is our breathtaking resident black stallion at Arabians Ltd. and has already sired HIS first EBC Champion, Oruba Alrabie RCA, a filly crowned at the 2009 Egyptian Event!

RSL Faith, a full sister to Bellagio RCA, is an Egyptian Event Champion and wonderful broodmare!

Mirajh RCA, Bellagio’s younger jet-black brother and Rhapsody’s second EBC Champion in a row, has been exported to Egypt where he is siring champions!

Rhapsody in Black’s 2006 filly, Rhapsody’s Crescendaa, was purchased in-utero and joins a collection of prized broodmares on the West Coast owned by Tim Manring.

Magic Elixir, Rhapsody’s first foal, is a beautiful stallion by The Elixir.
