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.
