Salexa mare 1988 (Exodus x Salamalaika) 

Salexa is bred and owned by Salex Arabstuteri. She is out of one of their foundation mares, the Algier daughter Salamalaika. Her sire Exodus is by the *El Paso son *Cadyk and out of the other Salex foundation mare Ex Diara. Salexa is a fine broodmare but she is also ridden. In 1998 she presented her owners with an April's Fool jest since she gave birth to twins by Pakistan on April 1st! Both foals did well and were called Summa, a filly, and Summarum, a colt.

Her mare family is one of the most sucessful families in the world, that of Milordka. The branch Salexa belongs to came to Sweden in 1962 when Dr Arvid Aaby-Ericsson imported the mare Sakla and her filly *Sake by El Trypoli. Sakla was a full sister to Estokada and half sister to Canaria and Sedziwoj, both by Trypolis and thus closely related to *Sake since her sire El Trypoli was by Trypolis.

Before she was exported to Tom Chauncey Arabians in the US, *Sake produced *Salexja by *Exelsjor, Saudi by Dardir (stallion in Germany) and *Polisa by Pohaniec. *Salexja was the dam of Salamalaika by Algier, Polka by Pohaniec (dam of Primo), Sanda by Dardir, *Sagana by Engano (broodmare extraordinaire) and the stallion Amarath by Pohaniec. Salamalaika also produced Saldara by Dardir (dam of Sapala) and Sanicja by *Cadyk, a 3/4 sister to Salexa and also a broodmare at Salex.

The Milordka family has three major branches, that of Anielka 1909, that of Siglavi-Bagdady 1908 and that of Koalicja 1918. Salexa belongs to the branch of Siglavi-Bagdady. This branch is probably the most important, with individuals like Fetysz, Saga, Canaria (with another line to the Milordka family through Koalicja's son Enwer Bey), Gwara, Cosmosa, Estokada, Celebes, Eskapada, *Elkana and Ekstaza.
