Magic Domino

Domino was tragically lost at just 25 years old in the loving arms of his owner and rider Kim Thomason.

Magic Domino's last triumph was winning the US "Sport Horse Sire Championship title", above all breeds in America, not just Arabs, a truly great achievement.

Read about it in a report (Click HERE to download a pdf document) which appears in the AHS Yearbook.

Domino's offspring in the USA and Canada have excelled in many fields under saddle; he nicks particularly well with Warmbloods and Thoroughbreds to take the Arab blood into the wider equestrian field.

Bred at Gadebrook and a "Living Legend" in the USA, an accolade only awarded once every 25 years, Magic Domino was the first British-bred Arab ever to be so honoured. And after his cumulative wins he was the highest ranking ridden Arabian in the USA.

As a youngster in Britain he won the Junior Male Championships as a 2- and 3-year old at the Wessex Arab Show. Magic Domino was then exported in 1991 as a 3-year old to Sherry Stewart's stud in Canada. In 2000, Domino was imported to the United States by Mark Thomason for his wife Kim. Together they reached the top, winning more points than any other Arab currently showing under saddle in the States.

At 16 hands Magic Domino was a very large Crabbet stallion while still true to the classic Arabian type. His strong performance pedigree was evident in his excellent movement combining balance with a long effortless stride. Domino's personality showed in the calm, confident approach he applied to his tasks. His conception rate by AI was excellent and his offspring show the build, movement and presence of their sire.

Domino's abilities as a sporthorse have been recognized by the Canadian Sporthorse Association (CSHA), the Canadian Trakehner Horse Society (CTHS), and the American Registry of Arab Bred Sporthorses (ARABS). He attained Phase 1 of the CSRA achieving the highest marks for the stallions.

At the 2005 US National Sport Horse Championships, Magic Domino received two TOP TENS as pure bred Arab stallion. This high placement at the Nationals and his other 2005 show successes earned him a futher award: his Legion of Excellence.

He finally achieved the ultimate accolade: legion of Supreme Excellence. Magic Domino's 2-year old daughter Enchantress also received two TOP TENS in a very strong youngstock class and proved a crowd pleaser for her manners and trot.

Magic Domino's successes earned him Legion of Excellence status.
