Nasrullah's Line

Nasrullah was one of the foundation sires of the 20th century. He established an own branch of Nearco's sireline, which further split into numerous other directions. This situation makes the whole line quite hard to comprehend. Another thing which doesn't help at all is the fact that Nasrullah's line became international immediately. The first successful son of Nasrullah who entered stud was neither Noor, a British-bred colt who defeated two American Triple Crown winners, nor influential sire Grey Sovereign. It was Nasr-Ed-Din, the leading sire in Chile, and he was followed by Edwardsii, who sired several top horses in Australia. Australian champion sire Rego preceded both Never Say Die and Princely Gift, and his successors Orgoglio and Coronation Boy entered stud earlier than Nashua and Bold Ruler. Japanese breeders waited a little longer, but still, the first Bold Ruler's foals were about to start their racing careers when Zucchero had his first Japanese breeding season already behind him.

Nasrullah spent almost equal parts of his stud career in both Great Britain and the United States, and his influence grew on both sides of the Atlantic. Bold Ruler is responsible for a big part of his American heritage, and the Triple Crown winners Secretariat and Seattle Slew were jewels of this lineage, both on the racetrack and at stud. Secretariat became a damsire of Storm Cat, A.P. Indy, and Chief's Crown, which all turned into dominant male influences. Seattle Slew seems to be a line successor and has an own profile on the website.

Never Say Die and Princely Gift became popular "alternative sources" of the line worldwide. Never Bend was divided between Europe and the U.S. thanks to his sons. And as for Blushing Groom, a son of Red God, his progeny proved his affinity for both continents. The last son of Nasrullah was Grey Sovereign, who earned his sireline on this website too.
