MONARCH AH was a dominating performer on the racetrack, winning 19 of his 23 races, an amazing 14 stakes and 3 Darley Championships.  MONARCH AH was not only an incredible runner in his time but took over leading sire status from his own father and remained leading sire of racehorses in the U.S. until his sale and departure to the middle east in 2001.

MONARCH AH is sired by Racing Hall of Fame stallion *WIKING 5/38(20-10-2)11-11 in Poland and U.S., $95,382, U.S. National Champion Racehorse twice. *WIKING is also sire of Cre Run’s DA ADIOS, the leading money earning racehorse in U.S. Arabian racing history.

MONARCH AH is out of Racing Hall of Fame mare *SASANKA, Polish Triple Crown winner.

MONARCH’S progeny has amassed over $5.2 million in earnings on the racetrack

This is a video of Monarch AH (Wiking x Sasanka) racing at Los Alamitos (night racing) on 1/18/92.  He set a track record of 1 1/8 mile in 2 1/5 and we believe the record still stands today.  Monarch AH was 5 years old at the time of this race.  He was owned by Magness Arabians at that time, but he has been sold to a Sheikh in Dubai back in 2001.

Monarch AH's dam died when he was only three weeks of age. But the little colt of “old Polish” lineage overcame the odds and became not only a champion racehorse who set three track records for his US-owner Magness Arabians, but also a champion sire and grandsire. He won 19 out of 23 races, of which 14 were Stakes races and was awarded 3 Darley Championships. In 1993, he retired to stud duties and soon after got second place in the US leading sire tables right behind his sire Wiking; six years later, he replaced him on first place and became Leading Sire. He was the first sire in US Arabian racing history, to have progeny winning over 1 Mio $ in a single season.
When Sheikh Sultan Bin Zayed Al Nahyan wanted to buy him, he was at first not for sale, and later, only if he would take all the 120 mares of the Magness herd, too! Sheikh Sultan did so, some 15 years ago, and since then Monarch AH enjoys his live at W’rsan Stables as senior stallion. His offspring are doing very well on the racetrack, but also as dressage horses: Al Khattar W’rsan is also known in Europe by his performances in Aachen, Janow Podlaski and Wiener Neustadt, always placed in the top ranks.
We wish Monarch many more years at his desert home, where he is cherished and loved by all around him, and rarely we see an old horse with eyes, so young and sparkling! -gw-
