We have received several hundred wins on horses we have trained or owned over the past 25 years, and received many trophys and awards, including DARLEY nominations, Sheiks Global Stakes, ARC CUPS, FIRECRACKER FUTURITYS, and other STAKES WINS. In addition, Rita was rated number one trainer in the US for two months in 1998. We set track records with Newscaster, wma PRIZTIN, and WMA SUGAR AND SPICE . 2013 brought outstanding wins from KROSSFIRE CS, resulting in his ,Darley nomination for 4 year old of the year, then his sale and export. We have sold and exported many horses outside the US, including race winner in DUBAI, and National Champion Endurance horse of Mexico, among others. Below are a few of our racing highlights from over the years:

She was bred, raised and trained by Welcome Arabians! Check out my soon Obie in this photo!!He wanted that trophy!!
BPL OVATION: VERY PROUD WIN: We had campaigned this pure Polish son of the legendary BANDOS PASB in halter during the 80's and he had many halter wins and championships. We wanted to prove the entire quality of this breeding as did the Polish, and proved it by winning at racing as well! At the time, the show people thought we were crazy risking this valuable stallon at something like racing! He retired sound, produced race and halter winners, and we now continue his heritage through his daughter wma FLORA in our broodmare band.
Racing back in the 1990's in Los Alamitos California was and experience we'll never forget!~ Many great horses and dedicated trainers competed there and elevated the awareness of racing Arabians. We remember training next to Billy Lewis, Brian Braithwait , Russ Reagan, Phil Saxter, John Burger, Yantzy Carter, Felix Payne, Danny Gharrett, and many more that helped build Arabian racing. The above phto is of of one of the best Arabians raciing during that time: IBN BINT HILYURI ended up with career record of 72(22-12-12) and actually had a few more wins, due to the methods of record keeping in those days, some of his wins were not officially recorded. we had IBN from his retirement to stud until his death, raced many of his offspring to wins, and maintain several of his daughters in our broodmare band, who continue to produce sound winners!
Our first really good stakes horse! He set a track record in Canada of a mile in 1:48 way back in the early nineties, ran second in the longest stakes race (1 5/8 mile) in the only Arabian meet in Hollywood Park! He often ran against Sueade (36 wins) National champion racehorse of Canada, and defeated him at Arapahoe Park in the 1 1/8 mile Cobra stakes. PRIZTIN was also one of the few to race at Bluegrass downs, Paducah Ky, where he missed winning the Gold cup by a nose! We have his daughter, wma Tropical in our broodmare band.
