Grey Filly , Born 2016

With vision and determination dreams really do come true. Imagine the exotic beauty of OM EL EXCELLA and the commanding charisma of EKS ALIHANDRO in one utterly enthralling feminine figure and you have OM EL ERODITE: one of the most talked about and highly anticipated Arabian fillies on the planet. Representing a step forward for the world-renowned Om El Arab program of Sigi Siller & Janina Merz, ERODITE is incontrovertibly amongst the most spectacular foals sired to date by EKS ALIHANDRO, international show sensation as twice unanimous All Nations Cup & World Champion and now emerging as one of the leading sons of most globally significant sire of the new millennium: MARWAN AL SHAQAB. The consummate show horse, EKS ALIHANDRO continues to bless his elite get with his size, scope, strength and smoothness, as well his undeniably magnetic appeal, all of which OM EL ERODITE exudes with ease. Not only is her sire a World Champion, ERODITE’s maternal grandsire is as well - Straight Egyptian AL LAHAB, international icon and sire of significance, whose inclusion in the Om El Arab program just over a decade ago altered the fortunes of both stallion and breeders most profoundly and positively. The inspiring type and quality of the AL LAHAB get is best expressed in OM EL AL AZEEM, OM EL BELADEENA, OM EL JINAAH & World Cup Bronze Champion OM EL EXCELLA – one of the most beautiful Arabian mares in the world and a proud member of the BINT SHAINA family of champions with yet another connection to a World Champion stallion: CARMARGUE, through her glorious granddam OM EL SHAINA. Most poignantly, ERODITE is blessed with two crosses, including most importantly directly tail-female, to the Spanish-bred legend ESTOPA - the “Golden Thread” - Om El foundation mare and indisputably the most influential mare in the Arabian breed worldwide over the last half century.
