Dam of *Nariadni

Excerpts from articles with reference to Nariadnaia:

Parkinson, Mary Jane. "Dams of Distinction: Tersk-Bred Imports". Arabian Horse World November 1983. Jay Shuler Co., Inc., Palo Alto, California. p. 258.

"*Nariadnaia was one of the Russian mares who captivated Howie Kale when he first visited Tersk Stud in 1975, and he had her high on a list of horses he wanted to bring home. She and her son *Nariadni (by Nabeg) arrived in the spring of 1976 and they, along with about 18 other Tersk imports, represented the Russian Arabians to many Americans who had their first look at them at the Kale farm near Seattle. *Nariadnaia's beauty and refinement helped to 'convert' many American breeders then, and her following of admirers has increased ever since. She began a show career in 1979 and was Show Champion Mare and Reserve Supreme Champion at the important Minnesota All-Arabian show, U.S. Top Ten Mare, and Canadian Top Ten Mare.

In the United States, *Nariadnaia produced three foals, 1977-1981: Karhonoff, a grey colt sired by Tornado; Muscarina, a grey filly sired by *Muscat; and Naribaa, a grey filly sired by Silver Baron. All were bred by Howie Kale.

Last Scottsdale, one of the sales of great interest and speculation was the offering of half-interest in *Nariadnaia at the Karho Farms Sale. She was 14 years old and had a *Muscat filly at her side. She was Lot A of the sale and, not surprisingly, topped the sale at $580,000. Ronald I. Dozoretz of Suffolk, Virginia, was the high bidder in spirited bidding for several minutes. *Nariadnaia remains at Karho under the new ownership.

At Tersk, *Nariadnaia was raced nine times as a two-year-old, won one race, was second three times, and third three times. She produced two colts and a filly (all by Nabeg), and the two colts have been imported. *Nariadni is at Karho Farms at Scottsdale where he is syndicated, and *Nanam is at Dr. and Mrs. Ron Fox's Foxmoor at Ocala, Florida."
