From our Arieana Notebook: Straight Davenport. Saba, full sister to the stallion Harara who sired Antez, was one of a group of eleven Arabians purchased in 1929 from Charles W. Jewett of Indianapolis for the W.K. Kellogg Ranch of Pomona, California, where she served admirably and profitably for many years as a broodmare. Although Saba was considered short-legged and only of average quality, she produced foals somewhat larger and better than herself. Saba is also noted as the dam of two foals (Sanad and Hasah) who  "... had a natural slow-gait [amble] that made a comfortable ride" by Herbert H. Reese in his book The Kellogg Arabians (p. 195). Mary Jane Parkinson in her book The Kellogg Arabian Ranch: The First Sixty Years writes that Saba was sold to G.A. Schilling, Chicago, in 1936; to Van Vleet Arabian Stud in 1939; to Dr. or Mrs. Gordon Dutt of Great Falls, Montana in 1941; to Walter C. or Nita G. Robbin of Big Fork, Montana in 1945. Saba died May 1, 1948 at age 27 (p. 511).

In addition to being of mid-pedigree influence in our treasured gelding Ashan Adar, of special note and interest to us at Arieana Arabians is Saba's son Sabab (x Tabab), a foundation stallion William Randolph Hearst's purebred Arabian breeding program at San Simeon, a sire for Elliot Roosevelt, and one of the few purebred Arabians known to exist in modern purebred Morgan pedigrees through his prize-winning daughter Princess Sabab. A photo of Sabab can be seen on Joon's page; Sabab is the chestnut stallion standing in the middle of the group of stallions photographed at San Simeon, circa 1937. For more information on Mr. Hearst's Morgan horses and his role in the development of the Morab as a breed registry, please see the article: The Morab Beginnings.
