Farewell FAME MAKER R | 02 June 1989 – 20 April 2019

02 June 1989 - 20 April 2019 During this holiday season of hope & rebirth, it is with immense sadness that we share the news of the passing of  FAME MAKER R with the worldwide Arabian horse community. Introduced to the Mulawa programme in 1996, FAME MAKER will long be remembered as the quintessential show horse, commanding the ring as no other horse before or after with his superlative balance & structure, his powerfully animated athleticism, his trademark ‘flag unfurled’ tail carriage, and his ‘I dare you to look away’ magnetic presence. With Greg Farrell at the lead and barely a foot on the ground whenever in motion, FAME MAKER completed his show career with three successive championship wins at the

In Loving Memory | SUGARLOAF SIRHARA

20 January 2007 - 20 February 2019 It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to our beautiful foundation mare SUGARLOAF SIRHARA , who passed away quietly this morning after suffering from acute colic. We thank our team and veterinary staff for attending to her so diligently and taking every measure to ensure that she had the very best of care. Bred by Lynn and Malcolm Gilbert of Sugarloaf Stables, Victoria, SIRHARA came to Mulawa Performance as a two year old filly. From the age of four this bright young mare was successfully campaigned by Daniella Dierks, with the pair earning remarkable accolades - including the title of Champion of Champions at the 2012 PSI Dressage and Jumping With the Stars. After SIRHARA’s

A Fond Adieu to AUDACIA | 2004-2018

29 August 2004 - 08 April 2018 An era has ended at Mulawa with the passing of AUDACIA, the most successful & beloved of the celebrated daughters of PARKVIEW AUDACIOUS. The product of his third foal crop, the deferentially named AUDACIA was destined to ensure his legacy within the breed worldwide would be both prolific & profound. Most famously revered as the dam of Mulawa super sire ALLEGIANCE MI, this excerpt from the arcticle Unwavering Allegiance (Studs & Stalions 2018) expounds on her importance within the Mulawa programme. “Born just after the New Year in 2009, ALLEGIANCE MI was the first foal born to his much admired dam AUDACIA, a former East Coast Champion Yearling Filly. Beloved as one of the

APPLAUSE | A Final Ovation

20 September 1981 – 04 September 2017 It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of a true Aussie Superstar - the wondrous APPLAUSE, who moved on to greener pastures yesterday at the grand age of thirty-six. As the last living son of Mulawa Foundation Sire AMBITION, the passing of APPLAUSE marks the closing of the final chapter of the earliest days of the Mulawa programme, which began over four decades ago with imports from the UK & the USA. Remembered fondly alongside three-quarter brother MULAWA THE QUEST, these two legendary sons of AMBITION did more to affirm the positive reputation of both Mulawa and the Polish Arabian in the performance arena than any pair of athletes in Australia.

MULAWA CHANCE | In Memoriam

17 November 1982 - 16 December 2015   This morning we bid farewell to our beloved MULAWA CHANCE. Born in November of 1982, CHANCE was foaled at the old Mulawa property where her sire, AMBITION, set in motion the direction and purpose of the Mulawa program. Tragically, AMBITION was lost prematurely, his legacy and influence left to his treasured daughters, with MULAWA CHANCE amongst his best and most prolific.   Not only was CHANCE the most celebrated of her sire's daughters, she was also the best produce of her esteemed dam, GROJECCA. Imported in-utero from the UK in the infancy of the Mulawa program, GROJECCA was a life-long favourite of Greg Farrell Sr. GROJECCA was in turn the dam of MULAWA THE QUEST, a consummate

We thank you for all that you were, all that you are, and all that you continue to be.

A Tribute to MAGNUM FORTY FOUR

Rarely in life do all the elements converge to result in the best possible outcome. When they do, however, and those involved in the fortuitous events recognize and appreciate the synergy of circumstance and opportunity, the world is rewarded with uncommon success and achievement. The story of MAGNUM FORTY FOUR is one such positive convergence of humans and horses, filled with magnificent highs and desperate lows, spread across a decade and a half and magnificent locales on opposite sides of the globe. Born from the first foal crop of international icon Magnum Psyche in 1998 amidst the sun-drenched hills of Southern California, Magnum Forty Four was bred by North Arabians prior to the addition of his legendary
