Nasrullah's Line in Europe

Author: Jana Nemeckova, published: 11th January 2018

Error report

We're afraid that this article will make sense only when combined with other timelines - especially Nasrullah's complete line or even better with its branches. Why? Simply said, almost everything Nasrullah's line ever produced in Europe was sold abroad. The first and the foremost, it was Nasrullah himself; he was followed to the United States by Blushing Groom, Caro or Riverman. And other countries took the rest: the whole line of Princely Gift or Never Say Die, and a big part of Grey Sovereign. What was Europe left with? Mostly Mill Reef, Rainbow Quest, and something from Caro's and Kalamoun's branches of Grey Sovereign. The "tattered" timeline of Nasrullah's line in Europe speaks for itself.

Stallions of the line - in chronological order:
