GG Jabask+/ [1973 - 1995]
GG Jabask+/ was foaled March 24, 1973 near San Antonio Texas,
in the ownership of Carl D. Newton of Gigi Arabians. His first
show was in 1977 at the Dallas Arabian Show where he won the English
Pleasure Junior Horse Class. He then moved on to the Texas State
Fair Show where he won the Stallion Class and the Versatile Horse
Class. Over the next seven years he continued his show career in
performance and stallion halter, showing in several shows each
year. During that time he was a multi-champion in English Pleasure
and Region 2, 9 and 11 Champion Stallion, U.S. National Top Ten
Stallion, Canadian National Top Ten Stallion and U.S. National
Reserve Champion Stallion in 1984 as a mature eleven year old stallion.
In 1981, GG Jabask+/ was purchased by Bru-Bet
Arabians in Iowa, a program that concentrated on the *Bask/*Serafix
cross, often doubling up on both sires. The role fit "GG" beautifully
as his dam Jalana was one of *Serafix's finest daughters.
During 1986, Bru-Bet sold a part interest in "GG" to
Paul Chodniewicz of Washington, New Jersey, and his associate
Reverend Gerald Scott of El Jireh Living Gold East, Inc.
The two owners, used "GG" much as his previous
owners had, compounding the *Serafix and *Bask++ lines.
"GG" probably set some siring records in the mid
1980s, as 210 foals are registered to him for 1986 and 201
for 1987. Though Volume 68 of the stud book GG Jabask+/ is
number five in all-time leading sires with a total of 895
registered offspring. He was recognized as a World Sire of
Significance in 1986 and his lifetime total puts him into
the Legacy Sire ranking. To date, "GG", is credited
with 26 Purebred National winners and well over 100 championships
making him the leading sire of Class "A" champions
of all *Bask++ sons.
In September 1992, GG Jabask+/ was purchased
by Rosewood Arabians and our partners Echo Ranch Arabians.
Before GG arrived from the Midwest we were nervous about
handling an aged breeding stallion. What if he was difficult
to handle, collect and just be around? Well all our worries
were for nothing. "GG" was a perfect gentleman.
The perfect breeding stallion, anyone could collect him,
handle him, and my young son was perfectly safe around him,
and loved to ride him.
"GG" was purchased to add size, length of leg
and neck, while strengthen the coupling. He did his job well
in the three years we owned him. In a departure to the previous
way he was bred we concentrated not on the *Serafix lines
horses, but on *Bask++, Khemosabi++++ and Bay El Bey++ bred

he also bred the following mares owed by the GG Jabask+/

In October of 1995 GG Jabask+/ was diagnosed
with terminal stomach cancer. After the diagnosis he was
fairly happy and healthy for about two months then in the
last two weeks before his death he really started to go down
hill. On December 21, 1995 "GG"was not feeling
well at all and the decision was made to put him down.
Even in death "GG" was the true gentleman. He
was given the drug to put him to sleep and before he laid
down he looked around to make sure all the people were out
of the way then just laid down and went to sleep. It was
the saddest day of my life. "GG" was buried at
a beautiful cemetery in the foothills of San Bernardino mountains
overlooking the San Bernardino Valley.
He is missed and never will be forgotten! He lives on in
his wonderful foals and in the hearts and minds of all who
knew and loved him.
