If you can imagine blending the exotic features of *Sanadik El Shaklan, the size and scope of *Sharem El Sheikh and the world-class quality, balance and type of *Carmargue, you would imagine Om El Exquisit. Exquisit’s head, with his elegant dish, refinement and kind black eye, is classically “Sanadik,” who was arguably the most successful living sire of international champions. Exqusit’s overall elegance: his long neck and long legs and smooth conformation bespeak his always-a-champion “Sheikh” influence. Exquisite’s balance of body, over-all harmony and elegance is a gift from world champion, *Carmargue. All three stallions impart a wonderful temperament, their dazzling charisma and athletic ability.
Besides contributing those extraordinary physical qualities, these three illustrious stallions infuse a pedigree rich in many of the world’s most celebrated champions and champion producers. Exquisit’s paternal grandsire is the celebrated *El Shaklan. His maternal great-grandsire is also *El Shaklan and his maternal tail female great-grand dam is the *Century Mare, *Estopa.
As a testament to his genepool, and the fulfillment of our expectations, the first Exquisit foal to be born was a colt out of one of our foundation Sanadik daughters. This colt is stunning: scoopy face, archy upright neck, smooth and balanced body, long legs and airy movement with lots of presence.
Om El Exquisit has a full brother, Om El Extreem, who was named National Champion Stallion of Spain in 2004. Om El Exotica, also a champion, his full sister, lives in the U.A.E.
Om El Exquisit is alive and well. He suffered a pasture accident and is offerred via frozen semen.
* *Estopa was selected as one of the “Top 5 Most Influential Mares of the 20th Century”
