It is with tremendous sorrow that we share with the global Arabian Community the passing of TS AL MALIK (Hello Barich ELS x BF Tiffany Select by BF Rageymazon). A beloved international icon who illuminated show rings with his masculine power and charisma on three continents as Australian & Brazilian National Champion, as well as a Scottsdale Reserve Champion, MALIK is best remembered as an invaluable Mulawa chief sire since his arrival to Australia in 1998. Bred in Brazil by Toni Salloum, MALIK was blessed with a unique combination of Spanish, Gainey, Raffles, Polish and Egyptian bloodlines, the infusion of which into the Mulawa programme has reaped infinite reward since the arrival of his first foal,In Memoriam | FLAME MAKER

FLAME MAKER was humanely laid to rest at Alabama Stud on Thursday following a protracted illness.

02 June 1989 - 20 April 2019 During this holiday season of hope & rebirth, it is with immense sadness that we share the news of the passing of FAME MAKER R with the worldwide Arabian horse community. Introduced to the Mulawa programme in 1996, FAME MAKER will long be remembered as the quintessential show horse, commanding the ring as no other horse before or after with his superlative balance & structure, his powerfully animated athleticism, his trademark ‘flag unfurled’ tail carriage, and his ‘I dare you to look away’ magnetic presence. With Greg Farrell at the lead and barely a foot on the ground whenever in motion, FAME MAKER completed his show career with three successive championship wins at theIn Loving Memory | SUGARLOAF SIRHARA
20 January 2007 - 20 February 2019 It is with great sadness that we bid farewell to our beautiful foundation mare SUGARLOAF SIRHARA , who passed away quietly this morning after suffering from acute colic. We thank our team and veterinary staff for attending to her so diligently and taking every measure to ensure that she had the very best of care. Bred by Lynn and Malcolm Gilbert of Sugarloaf Stables, Victoria, SIRHARA came to Mulawa Performance as a two year old filly. From the age of four this bright young mare was successfully campaigned by Daniella Dierks, with the pair earning remarkable accolades - including the title of Champion of Champions at the 2012 PSI Dressage and Jumping With the Stars.

29 August 2004 - 08 April 2018 An era has ended at Mulawa with the passing of AUDACIA, the most successful & beloved of the celebrated daughters of PARKVIEW AUDACIOUS. The product of his third foal crop, the deferentially named AUDACIA was destined to ensure his legacy within the breed worldwide would be both prolific & profound. Most famously revered as the dam of Mulawa super sire ALLEGIANCE MI, this excerpt from the arcticle Unwavering Allegiance (Studs & Stalions 2018) expounds on her importance within the Mulawa programme. “Born just after the New Year in 2009, ALLEGIANCE MI was the first foal born to his much admired dam AUDACIA, a former East Coast Champion Yearling Filly.

20 September 1981 – 04 September 2017 It is with great sadness that we share the news of the passing of a true Aussie Superstar - the wondrous APPLAUSE, who moved on to greener pastures yesterday at the grand age of thirty-six. As the last living son of Mulawa Foundation Sire AMBITION, the passing of APPLAUSE marks the closing of the final chapter of the earliest days of the Mulawa programme, which began over four decades ago with imports from the UK & the USA. Remembered fondly alongside three-quarter brother MULAWA THE QUEST, these two legendary sons of AMBITION did more to affirm the positive reputation of both Mulawa and the Polish Arabian in the performance arena than any pair of athletes in Australia.
