Le Fire was a Bask son who had great presence. Solei has several lines to Bask, and seems to have inherited lovely movement from him. She is a bit of an anomaly as she is much typier than her parents and much more refined. The authority on Arab breeding has told me that it appears she inherited her lovely head and neck from Ivanhoe Tsultan. All the better for her future get.
I had heard her sire had shown, but in consulting AHA- Arabdatasource.com- there is no record of any accomplishments, so apparently not. Perhaps it was a fun show. I did not find any show record for her Dam as well.
She has had some very successful Great-Grandsires, such as Ivanhoe Tsultan, Le Fire, and Cognac.

A full brother to Gdansk, Canadian National Park Champion. Cognac is a noted sire of horses with tremendous athletic ability.
