BEATING the odds!

A Profile of K A CZUBUTHAN, originally published in Arabian Racing Illustrated

Early in life, K A CZUBUTHAN was dealt bad luck. If he was to develop into the big, bold stud that was his potential, he would have to beat that hand. Plagued by a seemingly never ending series of problems and set backs, even those who so devotedly believed in his potential wondered if this horse would deliver.

K A CZUBUTHAN showed them, though. From a pudgy, clumsy, unimpressive colt, he transformed himself into a powerful and agile athlete. Under the determined care of those who would not give up on him, he overcame his mishandling as a young horse and developed the focus and attitude of a fighter. Deliver he did. In 7 years of racing, K A CZUBUTHAN accumulated a race record of 64(25-16-3)6-9, having won $109,000 in purses. He also earned the admiration and respect of all those who watched him compete.

K A CZUBUTHAN’s Pedigree Information

as originally researched and presented by Arlene Magid


KA CZUBUTHAN has a pure Polish pedigree noted for its success both on the track and in the show ring. His pedigree offers a valuable link to pre-World War II Polish imports of General Dickinson, as his dam is 3/4 Dickinson breeding. These lines are rare in pure Polish stock today, yet represent some of the most successful race lines no longer found in Poland.

Sire line

K A CZUBUTHAN is by the unraced Brusally Orzelost. His stakes winners are KA CZUBUTHAN, FLASH MAGIC, BRUTUS ORZELOST, KRISTI LYN and KEZORAM+. Brusally Orzelost was a many times Top Ten Race Sire, and he is also highly regarded and successful broodmare sire.

Brusally Orzelost’s full siblings include Brusally Orzelsta (dam of 8 race winners, including stakes winner SAMBORS IMAGE and stakes-placed Samborzelsta, Chlosta Home, CR Sun Princess and Sam-Sir-Echo, and SMR Ibn Orzel, race winner and sire of race winners). Two more full sisters to Brusally Orzelost are Brusally Orzelosta, dam of stakes-placed Gdapper and Brusally Orsta, dam of 3 race winners, including CR SAMBORSTA, Darley Champion 3-Year-Old Filly and winner of 5 stakes.

Brusally Orzelost is a son of 1967 US National Champion Racehorse *ORZEL, who was in the money in 11 of his 12 starts. Five Orzel get were stakes winners (SGR VAYU, ORZELA, BRUSALLY GAYSAR, WORZEL and BRUSALLY ORLEN). *Orzel was also a successful show horse and sire of show horses. *Orzel was a US and Canadian Top Ten Stallion, a US Top Ten English Pleasure winner, and a US National Champion Sidesaddle winner. His five National winning get include Canadian National Champion Stock Brusally Orzelta and US and Canadian Top Ten Hunter Brusally Orin (who has 7 National titles). *Chlosta, the dam of Brusally Orzelost, is a champion producer and a paternal sister to Canadian Top Ten Stallion and National winner sire *Barysz++. She is also a paternal sister to Penza, dam of Polish national Champion Stallion *Penitent (sire of US National Champion Mare *Kawalkada). Her dam *Carissima is a full sister to National winner producer *Muszkatela and maternal sister to National Champion producer *Mesalina (whose 7 champions include US National Champion Park Mieczych) and to US Top Ten Park AOTR and Swedish National Champion *Mustafar, also a National winner sire.

Female line

2nd Dam

Cashmere – *Czubuthan x *Kasmira

Chestnut mare

Bred by J.M. Dickinson and foaled in 1947

*Czubuthan – Dzingisham III x Ryfka

Grey stallion; height 15 hands; weight, 1025 pounds; girth, 73 inches; cannon bone circumference, 7 1/2 inches

7th Dam: Gazella, a desert-bred Kehilet Ajuz imported to Poland in 1845 by Count Julius Dzieduszycki.

*CZUBUTHAN raced two seasons as a 3- and 4-year-old. Out of 17 starts, he won 6, was second 8 times, third 3 times, never unplaced; and in two of his second places he was in effect the Arabian winner, for those races were won by Anglo-Arabs. The second largest Arabian winner in Poland, he won the Minister o Agriculture S. at about 2 miles, which offered the second largest purse in Poland. In this race he defeated the record holder at Polish Arabian Derby distance. Czubuthan was not a sprinter. Although he won at a mile, his principle races were at a 1 1/2 miles and over.

A horse of classic Arabian type and good size, he is of well balanced conformation and characterized by strong clean bone and good muscular development. A breeder of thoroughbreds with wide experience throughout the country, periodically visited Czubuthan at Travelers Rest because, as he said, “he has the finest set of legs I have ever laid my eyes upon.”

*CZUBUTHAN‘s grandsire was Hermit, a desert-bred stallion characterized as having been the best imported into Poland in this century before the first World War. He was bought in Bombay in 1910 by Count Wladysslaw Dzieduszycki. After serving two years on the latter’s stud Jesupol, Hermit was sold to the Austrian State Stud at Radautz in Bukovina, dating from 1792.

In consequence of the great destruction of World War I, Hermit left buy two sons which figured in the pedigrees of Polish Arabians, including Dzingishan III. Through his daughter Hebda, however, he contributed successful female lines, including her son Kaszmir (see below). Hermit’s daughter Dabrowka produced the celebrated mare Uteiba that was sold to the Estonian Government.

In his female line, *CZUBUTHAN traces seven generations to the desert-bred Gazella, a Kehilet Ajuz imported to Poland in 1845 by Count Julius Dzieduszycki. He combines not only the blood of Hermit and Gazella, but also traces to many of the best known Arabians in Polish horse history and in part to horses bred at Babolna in Hungary. He has been used to a greater extent than any Travelers Rest stallion, and his get have been widely sought.

*Kasmira was sired by KASZMIR, the most celebrated Arabian stallion in Poland at the beginning of World War II. In addition to his Derby victory, he was victorious in the Polish Criterium three times. He won at a variety of distances and held the Arabian mile record with a time of 1:47.50.

*Ba-ida is a daughter of Polish Derby winner FLISAK. She herself was a very successful race horse compiling a record of 1/11(3-4-1). She was undefeated at 1 1/8 miles and one of the five fastest Arabian mares of record in Poland at that distance. She is also a sister to Cemira, a leading money earner in 1936-37, and half-sister to winners Celedir, Certuma and Bakhtiari, leading money earner in Poland in 1938.

*Ba-ida represents not only the blood identified with Pelkinie and the studs of the Count Dziedusczycki, but also carries the blood of the Slawuta and Antoniny Studs. Her sire was grandson of Ibrahim, that got Showronek, and so she is also related to some of the best-known Arabians in England and the United States. He was the leading sire of winning Arabians in Poland in 1938.

Her dam, Poponia II also produced the celebrated stallion El Haifi. This horse was confiscated by the Germans in World War II and stood at Debica.

*Ba-ida was a beautifully balanced mare of great quality and substance, and a proven producer of first class colts. Her son, Bandos, was a prize winner in the Northern California District fair in 1941; her son Baguio was exported to Columbia, South America, in 1945; and her son Bataan went to the United States Remount Service.
