2009 bay mare

When you possess immense quality, ooze Arabian type, hail from one of the world’s most successful breeding programs, have multiple crosses to breed legends, look better in real life than you do on paper and are the epitome of Arabian femininity, you are deemed luxurious (well in my books of course). And whether it is in the stable or show ring, this breathtaking bay beauty uses her luxurious looks to melt our hearts, grab our attention and command respect.
TF Exotikah hails from the highly acclaimed Talaria Farms breeding program and her pedigree is a combination of their finest individuals. She is a daughter of Egyptian Event Champion and Champion Producer – Botswana. Botswana is an exceptional stallion that is line bred to The Minstril (through his groundbreaking son Thee Desperado and champion producing daughter The Minuet) and more intensely to US National Champion Ruminaja Ali. Ruminaja Ali brings with him the blood of two of the industry’s greatest breeding horses – Shaikh Al Badi and Bint Magidaa.
Notching up the level of luxury in this stellar pedigree is TF Exotikah’s dam, EAI Etheena. She is a daughter of the regal sire Safeen, who adds the rare sire line of Shahloul through Mashhour to this star studded line up. Her dam is a daughter of Egyptian legend and sire extraordinaire, Norus. And of course, the multiple traces to Egyptian immortals Morafic and Nazeer found throughout TF Exotikah’s pedigree solidify the luxuriousness of it all.
TF Exotikah is not just a luxury to have and look at, but she extends this very trait into the Al Thumama breeding barns. Having produced two spectacular daughters, namely Elena AT (by Thamer Al Khaled) and Emara AT (by Kahil Al Shaqab), TF Exotikah is proving her worth and that luxury does indeed beget luxury.
To sum it up, luxury is a thread woven into all facets of this magnificent mare’s life and we can expect this thread not only to weave itself within the spectacular Al Thumama breeding program but within the entire industry; in turn giving everyone a taste of pure luxury.
