is Sekta from Branda Arabstuteri. My mother and I used to travel around studfarms
on our holidays when I was younger. Mrs Töllborg at Branda was very hospitable
and had prepared coffee with lots of cake and bisquits. I think my mother found
the coffee more interesting than the horses... This was Sekta's last summer since
she had to be put down in the autumn because of cancer.
had one foal in Poland, the mare Setka by *Namiet, and was imported in foal to
*Ellorus. The resulting filly Selecta was bought by Blommeröd. Sekta produced
two more mares, Sarina by Ariel and Salca by Alcazar. Sekta's dam *Sabrina was
also imported to Sweden and produced among others the stallion Saponiec.
*Sabellina, granddam of Sekta, is known to pass on excellent racing abilities.
to the mare family of Mlecha OA 1845, from a Kuhailan strain. This family is well
represented in Sweden although the branch *Sabellina belongs to is not great in
numbers. It goes back to the mare Lysa 1915 (the other branch is through Fanfara
1914) who was the dam of three mares: Mabrucha 1928 and Safta 1929, both by Pielgrzym-Thuja,
and *Iwonka III 1936 by Ibn Mahomet. Safta was the dam of Sabda 1940 by Miecznik
who produced Salwa 1945 imp Sweden and Sakwa 1953 (by Abu Afas and full sister
to *Sabellina). In Sweden the *Sabellina blood comes through Sekta and two more
recent importations. The mare Golmohar, born in Canada and imported by Blommeröd,
traces back in female line to *Sabellina through her daughter *Santa (full sister
to *Sambor). The other source is indirect via the male line, the stallion Samsheik
at Genberg&Co is by *Sabellina's son *Sambor by Czort.
has left a small family in Sweden through her daughter *Salvia but her polish
offspring has certainly made a great impact. Her daughter *Szarza was the dam
of Amerigo and thus paternal granddam of Khemosabi. *Salina, a full sister to
*Salvia, is known as a producer of race horses.
