breed has become immeasurable with his get and grand get
now filtering through the pedigrees of many of the current
days most successful horses both in the show ring and

"This is a wonderful stallion; a great broodmare
sire with a kind and gentle nature. We have always
known that our foundation rested with our mares.
Much of the success of our farm and breeding program is
owed directly to him." Beverly Sziraky, Imperial Egyptian Stud
The fact that Orashan is in such uniquely good condition
for a horse of his age is a testament to his quality,
temperament and value as a sire. He is one
of this era's true progenerators of soundness and type
and his contribution to the breed will be forever present
in the wonderful foundation that he has created in modern
day Egyptian horses.
