(Sankik El Shaklan x Ja Flirtatious by Batrosk)
2002 Bay Mare
Vivatious, named after the English word vivacious which means attractively lively and animated, is a bay bombshell who lives up to her name in more ways than one. A well shaped neck, classic Arabian type, near perfect balance and timeless beauty are a few of many traits that classify Vivatious as a one-of-a-kind jewel. This mare and her progeny have the ability to enthrall you with their undeniable beauty and style.
Vivatious gets her timeless phenotype from her yesteryear yet quite relevant genotype. Being a daughter of Sanadik El Shaklan (a stallion known as the progenitor of classic Arabian type and the “Golden Cross”) means that the blood of breed super sires El Shaklan, Hadban Enzahi and Shaker El Masri as well as aristocrat dam Estopa are flowing through her veins.
While her sire’s side is equally made up of both Egyptian and Spanish blood, her dam’s side offers a unique balance to those lines as they are predominantly made up of classic Polish blood. JA Flirtatious is sired by the Bask son Batrosk and her dam is a granddaughter Strike – of one of the greatest and most accomplished stallions that ever lived. A total of three crosses to the immortal “game changer” Bask++, two to Polish legend Comet and 4 to brood matron Balalajka and in turn 4 to prolific sire Amurath Sahib as well as the rest in her genotype have given Vivatious the rare ability to produce extraordinary individuals on every occasion.
Now as already mentioned, she is a daughter of Sanadik El Shaklan which means she is a half sister to show ring superstars Om E Shadina, Om El Sanadiva, El Dorada and many more. Even though Vivatious wasn’t as successful as her sisters were in the show ring, she sure is on par in the breeding barn. Her son Taipei MTC (by PCF Vision) and daughter AJ Assala (by PS Andiamo) are champion show horses and her latest daughter by EKS Alihandro is a stunning filly ready for the center stage.
I may not know what the future holds for Sandhu Arabians and Vivatious, but I do know that with a mare of Vivatious’ caliber and the meticulous breeding decisions of Dr Sandhu, success will always be near.
