Philosophy has been described as the best source of Naseem blood available. Philosophy is a grandson of *SALON RASB, who was a Naseem grandson.  Philosophy has three additional lines to Naseem: one through NASLEDNIK and two through Silwa, who appears twice in his maternal grandsire Pyatigorsk’s pedigree.  Naseem was a Skowronek son.  Also, through Pyatigorsk are numerous lines to Skowronek. Philosophy also has several lines to Rodania, through his FOUR lines (16%) to PRIBOJ x TAKTIKA, as well as multiple lines through Pyatigorsk. 

While Philosophy has elements of refinement and prettiness in his pedigree, he also has race blood on both his sire and dam sides.  His sire, PISTASCHIO, was out of *Panntera RASB.  *Panntera RASB's dam was *PANAMA OF TERSK RASB, whose dam was PLATINA (PRIBOJ x TAKTIKA).

Philosophy's maternal great great grand-dam was the phenomenal race mare *SABELLINA PASB, who won the Polish Derby and Oaks Stakes races.  Philosophy's great grand-dam EW Sabaska by *BASK++ PASB did not race, nor did her half-sister EW Rema by *MELLON PASB.  However, EW Rema produced a tremendous race horse, HT SARAH by *EL PASO PASB.  HT SARAH's race record was 4/40 (18,8,2)13-8, with earnings of $251,989.  Not only was *SABELLINA PASB a tremendous race horse, but she proved extremely prepotent, as she created a racing dynasty in Poland and in the United States.  Her son *SAMBOR++ PASB and his son SAMTYR are both in the Arabian Trust Racing Hall of Fame. 

Philosophy's sire PISTASCHIO set a track record at Grant's Pass, Oregon.

Philosophy has proven to be a very consistent sire, having produced excellent offspring from daughters of several different stallions.

Philosophy's full sister, Spirited Music, has been very successful in endurance, with an AERC Decade Team Award in 2013, and a completion rate of over 90% including the challenging Tevis Cup.  She is still going strong, and reached 3000 AERC miles in November 2015.

Philosophy’s full brother, Kryptik, a grey gelding born in 1997, was purchased by Gary Skinner in Olympia, Washington on May 8, 1999. Although Kryptik has not been active in endurance racing, he has been, and continues to be, ridden extensively in trail rides sanctioned by the Back Country Horsemen of Washington State. In December 2012, Chloe Skinner, Gary's wife, commented about Kryptik: he has been a blessing in so many ways that speak highly of his mental abilities and his bloodlines. His is a reserved and assessing personality, cautious and skeptical until he is satisfied that his best interests are being met.”

In 2007, Philosophy was bred to our foundation mare, Moment of Mine, then age 23.  The result in 2008 was Moment of Mine’s last foal, this lovely mare, Kusha (pictured above right), owned by Ashley Fudge in Manitoba. Kusha is Philosophy’s second offspring being ridden in endurance.  The first is the gelding Photon (Philosophy x Czorteena), ridden by Jerry Gillespie, DVM in AERC endurance rides since 2013 in California.

Imagine That Sound

  (IMAGINE THAT MA x Sound Of Silence by Pyatigorsk)  

2012 Bay Stallion

Imagine That Sound is bred to be a race horse.  His sire is IMAGINE THAT MA, race-winning son of US Champion Racehorse MONARCH AH.  IMAGINE THAT MA’s pedigree complements that of Imagine That Sound’s dam, Sound of Silence. She was a full sister to Kaluwa, the dam of our lead stallion, Philosophy. Philosophy was sired by PISTASCHIO, track record setter at Grants Pass Downs in Oregon.  There are multiple lines to PRIBOJ x TAKTIKA: three lines to CZORT (winner of 13 races in 19 starts including 8 Stakes races) and two infusions of the fabulous Polish race and brood matron, *SABELLINA PASB (winner of 5 of 7 races including the Derby and Oaks Stakes).  These mares were from the most successful race family in Poland since World War II.


Imagine That Sound is well started under saddle.





Dam: Sound of Silence


Grandsire: Pyatigorsk

Dam:  Polaris


SCA Vision

  (Vested Legacy x Polaris by Philosophy)  

2015 Grey Stallion

SCA Vision’s sire is Vested Legacy and his dam is Polaris. Vision is the first offspring from his dam.

Vision has been saddle-trained. His trainer thinks he is one of the best horses we have sent to him. Vision has a wonderful personality.

Vision represents the essence of our breeding program: line-breeding to the offspring of PRIBOJ x TAKTIKA. Vision is in-bred 3x3 on record-setting racehorse PISTASCHIO.

Vision has 17 lines to Russian Derby winner PRIBOJ, 11 lines to PRIBOJ x TAKTIKA and 4 lines to *SALON RASB taken to a PRIBOJ x TAKTIKA female.


Following racing convention, names of Stakes race winners have BOLD TYPE AND CAPITAL LETTERS. Horses that placed second in a Stakes race are Bolded But Not Capitalized. Race winners are in CAPITAL LETTERS. Horses that did not win, or did not race, have only the First Letter Of Each Word Capitalized. For horses imported to North America, a star * is placed in front of the horse’s name and its country of origin is added to the registered name. PASB = Polish Arabian Stud Book; RASB = Russian Arabian Stud Book; GASB = German Arabian Stud Book; NSB = Netherlands Stud Book.
