58 6/8" DAMASCUS


We have some tremendous sable bulls breeding on the foundation Rapella has left them.


Damascus and Rapella Jr. are currently in a tie for the world record living Sable bull at 58 6/8". Nitro, not too far behind at 56 ⅜," and Tungsten at 55"+. They are all from the legendary Rapella line.


Moremi is an entirely unrelated, pure Matetsi bull. He was added to our herds to ensure genetic diversity for optimal results.


We are privileged to have had the legendary ‘Rapella’ as our flagship breeding bull. He has given us his best years and we are sad to say that he passed away on 7 February 2019.


He has had some phenomenal progeny over the years. There are very few lines that have a sire that keeps breeding bulls that is way bigger than himself, consistently. This shows a strong heritability of horn length, and we are excited to share that their offspring also shows amazing potential.


At Crown Game Breeders, our love and passion for sables are infectious! We believe that when you do something you love, you will get the results. Our Matetsi sables are living proof of this belief. 


We look forward to introducing new and upcoming giants and Super Sables to you.
