Many of you know that I have been casually researching the history of the mare known mostly as *Exochorda for quite a few years. In that time I have collected a great deal of information regarding the history of the horses, people and places associated with *Exochorda, and I have written about this from time to time. There is a great deal of newly uncovered information to report on this topic, and research obtained by myself and Marilyn Lang during our recent stay in Egypt has expanded the file substantially. I am in the process of putting together a comprehensive article, booklet, book, or whatever size publication is required to present this case in a complete and thorough format in the near future. In the meantime, I wish to go on record with the following statement:
*Exochorda, known in Egypt as Leila II and/or Marquita, is absolutely and without question qualified as a Straight Egyptian. She was conceived in Egypt of Asil desert bred parents, born in Egypt in the possession of a famous breeder in association with and under the supervision of the RAS. Furthermore, she came to America from the Royal Stables of Egypt.
Substantive evidence and documents will be provided to support the above statement within the publication, and with the permission of Oliver and Alexsi, I will present an outline of these on this forum. Caryn Rogosky

Quote Ken: "Hansi doesnt question the purity of her so called parents just how it all happened after they left the track. thats what needs to be proven. so if JF wanted to call Enzo Se then that would be the last word? "
Yes, it is true that NOW Hansi is stating that she doesn't question the purity of the parents, but that is a change from what she has previously stated. I wll be happy to post those earlier quotes from her for you today if you would like. My understanding is that she changed this public position when the Asil Club threatened to disassociate her if she did not cease questioning the purity of *Exochorda, as she is an Asil qualified mare. Since Hansi is reading this thread, she is welcomed to either confirm or deny that this is accurate.
this is ABSOLUTELY wrong. We are members of the Asil Club and Karsten is the treasurer of it. We know it for sure. The Asil Club has NEVER threatened Hansi to not question any horse, namely Exorchorda. We cannot believe what you are writing. Who has informed you about this so badly?
Hansi is a wellknown researcher and a great help for the Asil Club to verify pedigrees. The Asil Club is completely trustful concerning her work and there are no doubts that she is working accurately.
