Arizona Ali is a 2010 Thoroughbred mare by Best Minister, out of Kamali, the mother of Top Model. Arizona is a pretty mare who has become Callie’s best friend and a wonderful addition to Jaz Creek. She has an amazing mind and beauty to match.
Arizona is available for sale for $15,000 through 2012. As she continues under saddle her price will go up.
Best Minister, a son of Deputy Minister out of a Halo mare, may be one of the best kept secrets in sporthorse breeding – he throws conformation hunter good looks, and a super jump. Deputy Minister has also produced multiple sons, notably Silver Deputy, Bombardier and Coordinator, who have produced FEI level event horses. Best Minister recently began training as a jumper as well.
Her damside pedigree includes top TB sport horse producers Nasrullah, Princequillo, and Turn-To in the first three and four generations. Eventers have long valued the blood of Mill Reef (maternal grandsire) for infusion of conformation, athleticism, and refinement. As determined by the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses in 1995, nine of the top ten event sires in the world descended from Nasrullah, while Princequillo and Turn-To were also present in one of five top event horses. Not limited to eventing, the lines of Nasrullah, Princequillo, and Turn-To can be found in the internationally jumping TB Grand Prix horses Bradford, Final Pool, and Meridith Michael’s famous mare Vogue.” – Printed courtesy of Dina Mazzola, Three Wishes Farm
