From our Arieana Notebook: Purchased from the Radziki-Male Stud of Tadeusz Gniazdowski, Osiek, Poland, and imported to the United States in 1937 by General J.M. Dickinson of Travelers Rest Arabian Stud. *Lassa arrived in foal to Antez and produced the outstanding colt *Latif for Travelers Rest shortly after her arrival.

In Poland *Lassa had been bred to Hardy (Ganges I x Gazella II) and in 1936 produced the race winning filly Saragossa. After her  importation to the United States and while under the ownership of General J.M. Dickinson, *Lassa was shown and named Champion Arabian mare, first prize Arabian mare over three years, and fourth prize Arabian under saddle (all other prize winners being stallions) at the Illinois State Fair 1937. She also produced four foals for him. When General Dickinson dispersed most of his herd in 1947, *Lassa was purchased by Bazy Tankersley of Al-Marah Arabians for whom she had her last six foals.

From our Arieana Notebook: Sire of 24 registered purebred Arabian foals (8 colts and 16 fillies) including his daughters Surrab and Tezeyna who are of mid-pedigree significance in the breeding program at Arieana Arabians. And although not in our own pedigrees, we at Arieana Arabians also treasure the influence of *Latif's son Potif (see photo), a stallion owned by Dr. and Mrs. Harold Palmer of Portland, Oregon and a stallion considered by Gladys Brown Edwards as hard to fault. Potif was a notable winner in the show rings of the Northwest and sired the incomparable jumper Senrab. Another notable Potif get was the parti-colored filly Lava Ridge Potecka. In other words, we are very proud of *Latif's influence in our purebred Arabian bloodstock at Arieana Arabians for its athletic quality, beauty, and versatility!
