Prides Merit 272847

Bay Stallion foaled March 27, 1982.
Bred by Elizabeth H. Rily, Waddell, Arizona

This beautiful, stylish, upstanding horse, with his spectacular and totally correct natural trot, epitomized much of what many people most desire in Arabian horses.

Not only was Prides Merit an outstanding individual, but he was also very well bred; his pedigree easily explains why he was so good, as well as why he possessed his magnificent trot.

His sire, Aur Pride, was a full-brother to the race winning Aur Patriot. See reference stallion Aur Patriot for pedigree details.

From his damís side, Prides Merit carried 25% influence of the highly regarded old Draper breeding program in California; this program blended Crabbet/American lines, with emphasis on Skowronek/*Raseyn, with the lines of the Drapersí own original Spanish 1934 imports. Prides Merit could boast of two of the Drapersí most influential founding sires: Sureyn, who in his era sired a great many show champions, and the brilliant trotting Caravan, who lived to be 38 years old. Also in Prides Meritís damís pedigree are seen such American Arabian stallion greats as: the Skowronek son *Raffles, who also had a spectacular trot and was one of the most influential Arabian stallions ever imported to the United States; Alla Amarward, for years one of the three leading sires in North America, who is represented in this pedigree via his son Wardamar Alla; the great progenitor Gulastra, represented via his beautiful son Katar; and the desert bred *Mirage, represented via his son Rifage, who was for many years a chief sire at the yesteryear famous Van Vleet Stud in Colorado.
