Falconwood Arabians

Dams & Babies

One of the very best THEE GAMBLER daughters, Zaariya is shown with  her 2005 foal by Shabab Jamal.  Sired by TG and out of Bint Zaarina, Zaariya was of the greatest beauty in face and conformation.  Her foal will be an integral part of the continuing legacy of THEE GAMBLER daughters.


This lovely, exotic, bay filly is by FW BACARRAT, out of an Orashan daughter.  She is the second filly by BACARRAT and has the same huge eyes that seems to be his "trade mark."  Her dam has been an excellent producer, with foals like FW Rosetta Rose, FW Casino, FW Fancy Gambler, FW Tiffany Rose, FW Maaressa Rose. (Photo taken at three-days-old.)

This beautiful, big, chestnut colt is the first foal by the exotic, AL GAZI. Both sire and dam are gray, both are sired by THEE GAMBLER, and this is the first foal for either one.  This great foal has a pedigree full of Thee Gambler, Thee Desperado, and Ruminaja Ali. (Photo at three-days-old.)

Bint Zaarina
(Ruminaja Ali x Gloriete Zaarina)

Extraordinary foundation mare, BINT ZAARINA was discovered by Jim and Marilyn Thomas on a list of sale horses, at a farm known, mainly, for its performance horses. Upon seeing this mare, they knew she was something very special and immediately purchased her.

At first sight, ZAARINA, was thought to be an exquisite individual by the Thomas'. They felt, from their own experience, she should be campaigned in Halter. Not long after, they did campaign ZAARINA to Canadian Nationals and U.S. Nationals in Mare Halter. ZAARINA garnered two National titles that year, Canadian Nationals and US Nationals Top Tens in Mare Halter. These two National titles put ZAARINA in a small, elite group of STRAIGHT EGYPTIAN MARES that have competed successfully at a National level.

Sired by Ruminaja Ali, a U.S. National Champion Futurity Stallion and a U.S. Reserve National Champion Stallion, ZAARINA, is his most famous daughter. At, almost 15.3hh, ZAARINA favors her National Champion Sire by her size, beauty and presence. Her foals by THEE GAMBLER are of great quality and will soon be seen in the show arena.

ZAARINA garnered many other Championships, including World Class Champion Mare and Reserve Senior Champion Mare, at the Egyptian Event. ZAARINA is retired now, and producing beautiful foals at Falconwood, her first and only real home.
