4/17/13 When I picked up my copy of the American Saddlebred Breeder’s Guide from 1990 and flipped through the pages, the number of Supreme Sultan sons jumped out at me. A total of 14 of his sons, not to mention the grandsons, were advertised in the magazine. He died 30 years ago in 1983 at the relatively young age of 17, but what an impact he made on the American Saddlebred breed. Of course, some of the sons in the Breeders Guide are nearly as famous as their sire while others aren’t well known at all. Here are all fourteen stallions.
CH Albelarm Supremacy out of Enticing Lady
Bred and owned by Mrs. Alan Robson. He sired CH Marquisat,
CH Albelarm Truly Fair, the nice Michigan stallion Supremacy's High Time,
and of course my good girl Loretta.
Duke Supreme out of My King's Promise by My King's X
He didn't sire a lot of horses, but one was CH Santa Claus.
Galahad out of CH Gala Affair by Denmark's Bourbon Genius
His dam was a good 3-gaited show horse.
