To put the Phara Farm breeding program together the Patti's had to find the best possible individuals with similar breeding to Lewisfield Sun God. Since Lewisfield Sun God was the product of inbreeding the full siblings Aaraf and Aarafa by *Raffles (Skowronek x *Rifala) and out of Aarah (Ghadaf x Nadirat), they began their search looking for a horse of this breeding with the most classical characteristics they could find.


The Patti's visited farm after farm, stopping all across the country to see every horse they could with similar lines. After months of searching and still not finding what they were looking for, they visited the La Rue's in Indiana. There the Patti's saw a yearling colt that was for sale who was an Aaraf grandson. Even though his dam line was not what the Patti's were looking for, this colt was EXCEPTIONAL and had every one of the qualities they were looking for. This colt, originally named Bint La Flag, was purchased by the Patti's and renamed Golden Pharao. Golden Pharao's show career began with him winning his first time out - a two-year-old being shown against Champions and sons of Champions. At the Wisconsin State Arabian Show the judge took a good look at Golden Pharao, and, after walking away from him came back to look at him again. He spent an unusually long time looking at Golden Pharao's head, and finally ran his hand down Golden Pharao's foreface, taking note of his extreme jibbah. The judge was obviously impressed (not just with Golden Pharao's head) and needless to say Golden Pharao did very well at that show. In fact, Golden Pharao seemed to win at every show he went to - he was truly a great show horse, he loved to be in the arena. Golden Pharao attracted a huge following right from the get-go. Golden Pharao made a lasting impression on everyone who met or knew him. He was genuine - a good guy, a fun horse to be around, a real sweetheart. In whole, Golden Pharao was an excellent individual: he had incredible sensibility, always knew what you wanted before you asked him. In the eyes of his long-time owner/trainer Annette Weber, Golden Pharao really set the standard, and a high one at that - as an individual, a show horse, and as a sire.
