Regal elegance, royal genes, a majestic presence and an overall depth of quality that is seen amongst the upper end of the industry are what make this Janow Podlaski bred beauty the star she is today. With her deep, expressive eyes, powerful, engaging trot, flag like tail carriage and hair-raising snort-and-blow attitude, Alabama has built up a fan base beyond the Al Thumama gates; one of a global proportion.

Alabama hails from the royal Polish ‘A’ line family and serves as more living proof, apart from Pianissima, Pegasus and Pernilla (just to name a few) of just how successful Janow’s Gazal Al Shaqab x Eukaliptus daughter cross was.  Being a daughter of the immaculate, World Champion – Gazal Al Shaqab means that the timeless beauty and aristocracy of breed queens Kajora and Bint Deenaa are surging through Alabama’s veins.

When we look at her dam line, we find that it is literally a layering of some of Janow’s finest mares. Her dam is the beautiful Eukaliptus daughter – Altona, who is out of the illustrious broodmatron – Albigowa. Albigowa is the premier and most valuable daughter of the glorious, Algeria – a mare who was aptly dubbed “Queen of Janow”, who was in turn a daughter of the Albigowa bred, Polish Aristocratic Dam – Algonkina.

Alabama’s graceful and ethereal phenotype and exceptionally layered genotype has helped her effortlessly earn European Liberty, Polish National and Deauville Cup honors as well as carry forward the unparalleled breeding abilities of her predecessors. With the straight Egyptian Abyad AA, Alabama gave life to the firecracker filly Arizona AT, who is a splitting image of her dam with an extra layering of type from her sire’s Ariela lines.

Alabama might be a state in the USA, but in the Arabian industry she is a stylish mare that possesses an enthralling type of beauty that goes hand in hand with her historic pedigree; a mare after any enthusiast’s heart and who is ready to dominate the Al Thumama breeding barn and fly their flag high.
