The 2009 bay mare SANTA BARBARA JUELL V is the result of breeding the already linebred *Ali Jamaal son, JULLYEN EL JAMAAL (x jullye El Judjin) to his paternal half sister, SWEET SHALIMAR V (x Sweetinspirationv) resulting in a mare who is tall and stretchy, yet feminine and elegant.
Bred by the late Sheila Varian, SANTA BARBARA JUELL V earned Scottsdale Signature Stallion Top Ten honors as a yearling in her only show outing, placing first on one judge’s card. SANTA BARBARA JUELL V was put into production as a broodmare at the earliest opportunity, and at the age of 4, she produced the first in what seems to be a never-ending stream of fillies.
To understand the significance of her position in Arabian horse history, it must be noted that SANTA BARBARA JUELL V is the last daughter of one of the most successful mares in the astronomically successful Varian program – the beautiful bay Ali Jamaal daughter Sweet Shalimar V ( x SweetinspirationV by Huckleberry Bey V++); thus, direct descendant in tail female to some of the aristocrats of Arabian horse history – Sweetinspirationv, Spinning Song, Moska, Baychatka++, and finally, one of the three mares famed English breeder Patricia Lindsay purchased for Sheila Varian in Poland, the little powerhouse mare, *Bachantka (WielkiSzlem x Balalajka by Amurath-Sahib). A maternal half sister to both *Bask and Bandola, *Bachantka enjoyed a brief, but successful show career in the U.S., but it has been the incredible consistency of the mare line she has produced over the years that has made her one of the most admired and respected mares in Arabian horse history.
The *Bachantka daughters are the stuff of Arabian horse legend. Bachista V (by Ariston) gave us the national champion, Bravado Bey V. The petite Balalinka, who was the result of breeding the Balalajka daughter, *Bachantka to the Balalajka son, *Bask++, gave us Barbary+++, as well as several other national winning sons and some very good daughters. The *Bachantka daughter Bayanka (by Bay Abi+) is most notable for having produced the Khemosabi++++// son, Kaiyoum++, Canadian National Champion and sire of his own mare dynasty. And the incredible proliferation of winners goes on and on.
All those champions aside, perhaps the most significant *Bachantka daughter in that list of stellar mares is the beautiful Baychatka++. A champion herself, Baychatka++ didn’t produce the number of champions some of her sisters did, but she did produce seven daughters, and one of them was Moska (by Khemosabi++++//). According to an Arabian Horse World tally, Varian Arabians has produced more AHW Aristocrat Mares than any other farm in history, and a great number of the mares on the Varian AHW Aristocrat Mares list belong to the *Bachantka family -and more specifically, the Moska family, of which SANTA BARBARA JUELL V is a member. Moska herself is an Aristocrat Mare with 11 champions – and 11 descendants on the AHW Aristocrat Mare list, and as of 2018, the Moska daughter, Mosquerade V (by Huckleberry Bey++) is tied for first place on that prestigious list with her very close relative, Kaiynda Special by Kaiyoum++ (a full blood brother to Moska).
So celebrated is the *Bachantka->->Baychatka->->Moska->->Spinning Song->->SweetinspirationV->->Sweet Shalimar mare line that the first three of those mares was featured on the cover of the March 2016 Arabian Horse Times‘ article, “A Lifetime With Arabians” which detailed Sheila Varian’s Ten Commandments of Breeding and which pictured all of these mares, down to Sweet Shalimar and several of her daughters, including her last daughter – SANTA BARBARA JUELL V, within the article.
In addition to SANTA BARBARA JUELL V, Sweet Shalimar produced the sensational performance sire, Sundance Kid V and his full sisters, national champion producers Sweet Silk V and Sweet Saphire V (all by Desperado V); multi-national top ten producer Sweet Caroline V (by Besson Carol; multi-national champion producer Sweet Klassique V (by *Fairview Klassique); and SANTA BARBARA JUELL V’s full sibling (by Jullyen El Jamaal) U.S. National Top Ten Western Pleasure Futurity Mare CA Vista.
SANTA BARBARA JUELL V’S sireJullyen El Jamaal (Ali Jamaal x Jullye El Ludjin by Ludjin El Jamaal) is said to have been selected by Sheila Varian for the express purpose of covering her Moska-bred mares, and the intensely linebred (to Ali Jamaal) stallion certainly did that with remarkable success, particularly his Sweet Shalimar daughters. A western pleasure and halter champion himself in very limited showing,Jullyen El Jamaal was a leading sire of performance horses, and he has also made his mark as a sire of sires and broodmares who are producing offspring who are garnering national and regional titles in many disciplines.
Some of his more successful sons include multi-national winner and champion sire A Jakarta (x GaiSchara); national champion western pleasure and multi-national champion ladies sidesaddle, Jake Jamaal JCA++// (x Von Herte Only One); multi-national champion western pleasure Anthem V+// (x AlyceBey V); multi-national champion western pleasure Monticello V (x Mosquerade V); national top ten in halter and western pleasure Always A Jullyen V (x Amazing Grace V ); and multi-national champion ES Gamal+++// (x Gianna), to name a few.
Some of Jullyen El Jamaal’s most successful daughters include multi-national top ten ladies sidesaddle, western pleasure and hunter pleasure, KachinaJuell V+ (x Khantina Girl V ); regional champion and national top ten halter Jacline Jamaal JCA (x HushahbyBey); national reserve champion and multi-top ten western pleasure Sahara Jewel V (x Sweet Sanadika V); and multi-national champion hunter pleasure Jullyanna+/ (x Adelaida+//). Still other Jullyen daughters have not been shown, but are proving their worth through their champion offspring.
In fact, SANTA BARBARA JUELL V has many accomplished three-quarter siblings who are out of her maternal sisters and sired by Jullyen El Jamaal, including National Champion Hunter Pleasure Futurity horse, San Carlos Jullyen V (x Sweet Caroline V; national western pleasure winner Santa Cruz Jullyen V (x Sweet Caroline V); national and regional halter winner Sweet Julliet V (Sweet Klassique V); national western pleasure and halter winner San Souci V (x Sweet Klassique V; multi-regional and national western pleasure and halter winner, San Saba Jullyen V++ (x Sweet Klassique V); and national western pleasure winner San Jacinto Jullyen V (x Sweet Klassique V).
SANTA BARBARA JUELL V is doing her part to continue the heritage of stellar mares, so far producing six beautiful fillies, the last of which is the 2018 Baha AA filly, Sierra Juell MRF. Sierra Juell MRF won her 2019 Scottsdale Egyptian Heritage Yearling Filly Class and then was named 2019 Scottsdale Egyptian Heritage Jr. Champion Filly in a solid class of quality fillies. In 2019, SANTA BARBARA JUELL V produced a ____________________ by multi-national champion halter stallion Conquest BR (Versace x Lee Anna Psy by Padrons Psyche.
