1994 Black Mare
Thee Desperado x Aliashahm RA
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.
In 2006, Rhapsody repeated 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 inBlack was led to the winnerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s circle by Arabians Ltd. client Karl Breckon. Both of these honors are unprecedented for the Egyptian Event.
