our Arieana Notebook: Raad
was sired by Sidi, a son of Khaled who had established a sire line renown for feats of
and endurance in races, steeplechases, and cavalry. Raad
also carried three crosses to *Rose of Sharon, the daughter of the Crabbet
Stud foundation mare Rodania, and that same
for which this dynastic "R" mare family is renown brightly shows through in these two photographs
above of Raad probably taken at the Maynesboro Stud in Berlin, New
Hampshire sometime in the late 1920's.
Raad, at 10 years
old, was purchased from Maynesboro by W.K. Kellogg in
1932. At Kellogg she was admired for her very high tail carriage and
good form at the trot and was shown
at their Kellogg Sunday Shows in harness and occasionally
driven double with Rokhal. In
addition to her duties as a star performer in the Kellogg Sunday
Shows, Raad had several more foals
for Mr. Kellogg with more later for The Army Remount
program. Altogether she was the dam of 10 registered purebred Arabian foals,
the last foaled in September 1941 when she was 19 years old. Raad, along with *Rifla and Nusara,
were purchased by W.B. Carter and George Pyle of Lancaster, California in June,
No death date is listed for Raad.
Today at Arieana
still hold Raad in our highest regard and appreciation as the dam of Rahas, a stallion
whose influence is of the utmost significance in our breeding program. Raad
was also the dam of Raun, a full sister to Rahas
and a mare whose descends on the tail-female line continue on into this
21st century with
their winning ways at the track. And we look to Haat Pursuit,
our own rising star and future herd sire, to carry forward
these same winning traditions ~ join us for the excitement!
