Foundation Sire, Foundation Story: The Godolphin Arabian by Eugene Sue – Around the Oval with Melaina Phipps – Horse Racing Nation.

The Godolphin Arabian by Eugene Sue, trans. by Alex de Jonge (Derrydale Press, 2003)

One of the foundation sires of the Thoroughbred breed, the Godolphin Arabian was not an “overnight success.” The path to glory was long, and adventurous, and came complete with a curious cast of characters. Eugene Sue’s novella, translated by Alex de Jonge, is a tale worthy of the legacy of the great sire, El Scham.
