TS Al Malik – Vale
9 December 1992 – 15 January 2020
Mulawa Arabian Stud in Australia have shared the sad news of the passing of one of their chief sires, TS Al Malik. Bred by Toni Salloum of Brazil, this charismatic stallion was imported to Mulawa Arabian Stud – run by Greg, Julie and Jane Farrell – in 1997.
TS Al Malik was a familiar figure at the stud, occupying one of the main paddocks by the entrance. There, he would show off to visitors with his giant rubber ball, entertaining everyone as he played. His passing will leave a huge hole in the hearts of those who knew and loved him.
The Farrell family shared the following on the passing of TS Al Malik:
Farewell TS Al Malik
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 and 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, the late Aristocrat Dam On Angels Wings (ex M Angelique by Vision ) in 1998. This positive and pervasive influence of TS Al Malik in the modern Mulawa programme has been not only prolifically propagated through his incomparable daughters, but most significantly via the unfolding impact of his most important male descendants – current Mulawa chief sires Klass (ex Karmaa by Kaborr) and Allegiance MI (Magnum Forty Four x Audacia by Parkview Audacious), both of whom have extended his enduring legacy around the world.
As a poignant tribute to the late legend, the final two foals of the season arrived at Alabama these past two mornings: a gorgeous grey double-Malik filly by Allegiance MI out of the youngest Malik daughter in the herd, Aristocrat Dam Melody MI (ex Fames Harmony by Fame Maker R) on Tuesday; and an incredibly promising bay colt sired by Allegiance MI out of Always Valentine MI (DA Valentino x Always An Angel by SK Shakla Khan) early on Wednesday, an aspiring heir to the Malik legacy for the next generation.
Malik was laid peacefully to rest this morning [15 January] in the front paddock of Ambition, nearest the main entrance where he oversaw all the activities as the undisputed ‘king of his domain’ since the property was first established in 2003. Though his indomitable presence is gone from our everyday lives, his profound impact will endure for generations in the multitude of superlative descendants and in the precious memories he leaves behind for everyone blessed to have shared in his extraordinary life.
Thank you, Malik, for giving us all so many unforgettable years of joy, happiness and reward. Through the infinite gifts you leave behind, you remind us all, every single day, why life with the Arabian horse is the best life anyone can ever choose to live…
Dear Maliki, you were unique and very much your own man.Thank you for allowing us to share your journey. We will miss you greatly. No other horse has ever stepped through the gates of your pastures and it is there that I will think of you most. Playing with your ball, your rope, an old boot, always in search of entertainment. Your endless search for carrots. My fondest memory will be of you making your own toys; pulling up long grass roots from your pasture to make your own rope toy (as Klass would do the same in the adjacent pasture) and watch father and seemingly play together. Your legacy is secure and you will forever be a large part of the Mulawa story just as you will forever own a large place in our hearts.
