Elle Narcisse

Bred in the US by master breeder Markelle Arabians, Elle Narcisse is the exciting combination of the two greatest sires in the industry: Ajman Moniscione, the king of exotic type, and Marwan Al Shaqab, the king of elegance. This special combination has created some of the most shining show-ring superstars of today.

“I have always had high hopes for Elle Narcisse as a breeding horse. Sired by Ajman Moniscione and out of the remarkable, Marwan daughter Allamara MA who, in turn is out of a maternal sister to RGA Kouress, his early success as a sire, comes as no surprise. He was such an incredible foal, we bred Allamara right back to Ajman and produced his famous full sister and multi champion producer, Elle Flamenca. I look forward to following Elle Narcisse career as a sire and hope to one day use him myself on one of the Markelle mares.”

Elle Narcisse belongs to the very successful damline of Belbowrie Baskana and her daughter Angophora. Established breeders know of Angophora through her outstanding daughters RGA Kouress, the dam of World and US National Champion Stallion Marajj, and his full sister DL Marielle – the dam of young supersires Kanz Albidayer and Raoud Albidayer. From Belbowrie Baskana comes the mare Veronica GA, a US National Champion and dam of the typey sire SF Veraz as well as US National Champions PCF Vision and Verily PCF.

Angophora’s daughter RA Miss Saigon, bred by Rohara Arabians, is the maternal granddam of Elle Narcisse and his full sister, the famous Elle Flamenca. Elle Flamenca is a Champion in Dubai, Menton, Sharjah, Abu Dhabi, All Nations Cup and Las Vegas World Cup. Elle Narcisse is in fact the only full brother to the outstanding Elle Flamenca, which gives breeders a very special and unique opportunity to incorporate this very successful family into their breeding programme.

Angophora was chosen for the prestigious Rohara Arabians broodmare band, and she has also been the important component for so many other breeders. A daughter of Eukaliptus, the 1979 Polish National Champion Stallion, whose influence in Poland as a broodmare sire supreme is unparalleled. With daughters such as the iconic full sisters and Polish National Champion Mares Emigrantka and Emanacja – as well as Pianosa, the dam of world phenomenon Pianissima – Eukaliptus is a priceless asset to any pedigree. The legendary Bask, another Polish immortal, is the maternal grandsire of Angophora. Bask was the horse to start the ‘Polish revolution’ in Arabian horse breeding in the US, and he is now the cornerstone of Arabian horse breeding worldwide.

RA Miss Saigon is sired by Exceladdinn, a US and Canadian National Champion Stallion from two valuable Polish stallions – the bay Aladdinn, bred in Sweden, and the grey Exelsjor, bred by Janów Podlaski Stud in Poland. Exelsjor changed the look of Arabian horse breeding in Sweden and later in Poland through his illustrious grandson Probat, and is the one horse the Poles regretted selling. Aladdinn came from a dam bred by pioneer breeder Patricia Lindsay and a sire from Albigowa Stud, the retired circus performer Nureddin, by Witraz.

“Rohara bought several breedings to Elle Narcisse, for their breeding programme. In doing so, we bring back one of our foundation mares, Angophora (Eukaliptus out of a Bask daughter). We look forward to the future with this great addition.”

These powerful Polish bloodlines have paired with the superior genetic strength of Ajman Moniscione and Marwan Al Shaqab to create the dynamic Elle Narcisse. His genetic potential is already proven in his first get, with two Swedish National Junior Champions: JB Perline and SMG Senator from his first years of breeding. Elle Narcisse daughters have been coveted in public auction with the two lots at this year’s Schoukens Auction – MT Era and MT Morning Rose T sold to The Netherlands and Belgium, and other offspring have found new homes in the Middle East and around Europe.

As a young sire, Elle Narcisse is clearly on the rise. He stamps his offspring with exotic type, great body and movement and the perfect show horse attitude. Elle Narcisse is making his mark and established breeders worldwide have started to pay attention. The future is truly exciting!

Elle Narcisse is proudly owned by MT Training Center and Tara Arabians and is standing at Schoukens Training Center in 2020. Fresh semen available – frozen available worldwide.
