MULAWA CHANCE Legacy Award
Mulawa was incredibly proud to sponsor the MULAWA CHANCE Legacy Award at the 2017 Australian Arabian National Championships. Awarded to the winners in the Ridden Arabian Mare National Championship, this legacy award honours the continuing influence of beloved matron MULAWA CHANCE within the leading breeding programs across Australia, and subsequent show ring success at the highest levels. Mulawa is especially proud of the enduring legacy of MULAWA CHANCE in all performance pursuits, a testament to her prepotent and prolific Polish heritage.
Most aptly, the recipient of Gold National Champion Ridden Arabian Mare honours was LOVER GIRL FF, bringing home the Gold again for the second successive year for Melvyn Jackson. Sired by BRUMARBAS FUTURE and bred by Kate & Doyle Dertell, LOVER GIRL FF is a daughter of fourth-generation Mulawa-bred FAMES PASSION, a direct tail-female descendant of MULAWA CHANCE. Not only did LOVER GIRL FF win Gold in the Ridden Mares, she collected the Bronze National Championship in Arabian Bridle Path Hack & Top Ten in Arabian Show Hunter, as well National Reserve Champion Led Purebred & National Champion Ridden Purebred, the latter two titles both earned in the Youth Division.
Silver National Champion Ridden Arabian Mare was awarded to the consistently successful sixth-generation Toft Family-bred BREMERVALE BY GABRIELLE for Melanie Welsh, while Bronze National Champion went to ALOHA MISS CLEOPATRA for Mary Triggs, a fourth generation bred female for enduring Aloha program.
Another MULAWA CHANCE descendant also enjoyed a successful return to show ring competition at the 2017 AANC. Granddaughter FORCHOICE took home three awards for proud owner Casey-Lee Raper: Reserve National Champion Ridden Arabian in the Non-Pro division as well as Top Ten Arabian Bridle Path Hack in both the Open & Non-Pro divisions.
MULAWA CHANCE moved on to greener pastures in October 2015 at 33 years of age. To read more about the enduring legacy of this beloved Mulawa treasure, please click on the link below to download the PDF from The Arabian Magazine.
