This page is dedicated to my friend and hero, Dolly DeCair, and her fabulous Arabian stallion:
Karahty and his son, Karbon Kopy; check out the length of Karahty's trot!
Karahty was the greatest U.S. Endurance racing stallion that ever lived.
His last finish was in 1992, and though many stallions have tried to equal his record, none have. His statistics speak for themselves:
30 Wins 21 Best conditions 55 races with 54 finishes
In 1988 Wazirs Karahty won a 100 mile race in 8 hours, 48 minutes, with B.C.
Even though Wazirs Karahty and his remarkable owner and rider, Dolly DeCair are not highly publicized, statistics prove that both of them were superstars. Dolly rode Karahty to his many wins, along with his sons AAA Amadeus (who has an incredible record including second place on TEVIS), Khashoggi, and now Karahty's Karbon Kopy. This website is devoted to Dolly and her "boys". She set records with Karahty that have not been broken to this day; sleeping in the back of her trailer, feeding nothing more scientific than hay and grain. You rock, Dolly!! Keep on keeping on! (Dolly came in top ten at the Bandit Springs 50 on Karbon Kopy, a breeding stallion and son of Wazirs Karahty, in 2008, at age seventy..) 5th place in 2011. And now at age 81, Dolly still saddles up to ride Karbon, even after recent back surgery.

Karahty Chaos - This gorgeous 16H Karahty son was bred,raised and trained by Wendy Lumbert. He's never done endurance except for one LD ride where I got lost, fell off (long story!) and watched him run an additional 10 miles at a full gallop. We ended up coming in 16th after all that. He's a dearly loved trail horse, owned by Nancy Mayo, who does not ride endurance but says Chaos is the most fabulous horse ever!
Karahty Khashoggi - A sweet, athletic and beautiful stallion who was raised and trained by Dolly and is now owned by Dennis Monsen, in Foresthill. 9 top tens out of 13 races. Dennis says he has ridden stallions for 34 years and Shoggi is one of the nicest he's ever known, with a great personality. Watch for Shoggi's sons to race this year.
