IXL NOBLE EXPRESS+
April 16, 1997 –
MHR Nobility x RY Fire Ghazi by *El Ghazi
IXL Noble Express+ was sired by 6-time U.S. National Champion and Reserve Park Horse, MHR Nobility out of the great *El Ghazi daughter, Ry Fire Ghazi. Ry Fire Ghazi was a Regional Champion in Pleasure Driving and a Class A Champion English Pleasure. She is the dam of five National winners: Agrand Afire, Baskghazi, H Mobility H, IXL Noble Express+ and VCP Magnifire. IXL Noble Express+ is National Champion Park and H Mobility H is 3-time Reserve National Champion Park. Even more impressive is the fact that 8 of Ry Fire Ghazi’s 9 offspring have become National winning producers, literally ALL of her offspring with the exception of the half-Arabian gelding, Agrand Afire. That’s four stallions and four mares, and her daughter, IXL Firefly is the dam of 6-time National Champion and Reserve, ROL Divine Style. IXL Noble Express’s maternal grand dam is 3-time National Champion Informal Combination and English Pleasure, RL Rah Fire. Maternal grandsire, *El Ghazi was the 1989 U.S. Reserve National Champion English Pleasure.
IXL Noble Express+ was also the 2004 Ohio Buckeye Champion Park horse, as his sire was before him. In 2007 IXL Noble Express+ went back to the Ohio Buckeye show and claimed the title of Buckeye Champion Halter Stallion and subsequently, at the 2007 U.S. National Championships, he was named an open Top Ten Halter Stallion (third).
The first foals of IXL Noble Express+ arrived in 2003 and among them were his first National winners: A Noble Cause (x Sweet Summer Fire by Afire Bey V), A Noble Pass (x SA Passing Fancy by DW Zask), Expressamo (x Mystic Bey V by Huckleberry Bey++), Global Express (x Ohersnastraum) and Queen Of Soul (x Koralina). The debut for IXL Noble Express+ offspring at the National level came in 2006 when A Noble Pass took Top Ten honors in the U.S. National English Pleasure Futurity. A Noble Pass went on to be named 2008 Canadian National Champion English Pleasure Junior Horse and was the U.S. National Champion Show Hack in 2010 and 2012.
At the end of 2019 IXL Noble Express+ is the sire of 116 National Winning offspring. These National winners have gathered 710 National awards, including 149 National Championships and Reserve National Championships. Over half of the purebred National winners sired by IXL Noble Express+ are out of Afire Bey V daughters.
