Tuxeddo was purchased in the fall of 2011 from his breeder, Linda Moore, Ramona, California. He was then 18 years old, had never been off the property of Mrs. Moore, and had sired only one foal (a half-Arabian foaled in 2008) in his life. He had never been ridden or been in a trailer, but he had been handled since foalhood and was gentle.
I first saw Tuxeddo when he was about 10 or 12 years old. I had particularly wanted to see this black stallion because his 3rd dam was Blue Bierka, a mare I much admired.
Blue Bierka was daughter of *Blue Mantle, imported from England and of mostly Crabbet breeding (close to 100% Crabbet - but not quite), and Bierka, by Bataan x *Wierka. Thus, Bierka was “pure” Polish. Bataan was an outstanding black stallion bred by J. M. Dickinson in Tennessee; Dickinson had donated Bataan to the U.S. Remount which then took him to the old Kellogg Ranch, then the Pomona Quartermaster Depot and headquarters of the western area of the Remount. Thus, Bataan became an old Kellogg stallion. *Wierka was one of the mares that U.S. General George W. Patton’s forces captured from the German Army in the closing days of World War II.
Bataan was a very correct and balanced horse with excellent legs and feet. He had pleasing and attractive Arabian type. His disposition was exceptional and he was very athletic. His precious blood is rare today - and here was Tuxeddo, a black stallion descended from him.
I find other parts of Tuxeddo’s pedigree of interest, too. His sire, Jemaal El Pharo, was a combination of new Egyptian with the older Babson Egyptian lines, and his tail female was Mailatrah, a granddaughter of both Gulastra and Farana - about as good as one can get in the old American bloodlines. Tuxeddo’s maternal grandsire, Ms Santana, was tail female grandson of *Druchna, a daughter of Rozmaryn, who has been one of my favorite Polish sire influences in a pedigree. The famous *Bask in in Tuxeddo’s pedigree, too. Tuxeddo’s 2nd dam, Ddinnerka, was a daughter of *Aladdinn, whose name I always like to see in a pedigree because he was a good individual and such a good sire who clearly had a very positive influence.
Tuxeddo is a well conformed horse with very good shoulders and withers. He carries himself well and has a good trot. Although Bataan is far back in Tuxeddo’s pedigree (5th generation back, not counting Tuxeddo as a generation), influence of Bataan can be seen in Tuxeddo’s excellent legs, with good bone, joints, and feet, and in his disposition, which is kindly. Of course, Tuxeddo also shows considerable good influence from the vaster part of his pedigree which is not Bataan. It is nice to see Bataan influence, though.
When I saw Tuxeddo all those years ago, I liked him ao well that I knew I wanted to breed a mare to him, but he was a long distance from my mares and I always seemed to have other breeding priorities. Then I realized that Tuxeddo was not getting any younger. I contacted his owner and we decided it would be most feasible if I just bought Tuxeddo. I am glad I did, and that I was able to get him.
