Trussardi carries forward the incredible sire line of many of the best producing stallions in history, Nazeer, Morafic, Anaza El Farid and Gazal Al Shaqab. Trussardi inherited the genotype that has also allowed him to be an incredible sire of show horses, both in hand and under saddle.
Trussardi's Progeny - The Data
In just 8 shorts years (2012 – 2020), Trussardi sired 203 foals in the United States and more throughout the world, with 21 exported from the U.S. to countries abroad, and approximately 50% of his remaining U.S. foals entered the show ring. The following results speak for themselves:
11 US/Canadian National Champion or Reserve Champions
30 US/Canadian Top 10 Champions or Reserve Champions
11 Scottsdale Top 10 or better
27 Regional Champions or Reserve Champions
40 Regional Top 5 or better
13 Class A 1st Place winners
1 Australian National Champion Stallion
1 Sport Horse In Hand National Champion
The reason we purchased Trussardi is because of the entirety that is him. With Trussaardi we/you are ensured of getting fantastic conformation, movement, beauty, and a willing temperament. We want to ensure that we are producing complete Arabian horses that come as close to the breed standard as possible - starting with Trussardi.

Genetic strength is not achieved soley through the sire line. The significance of the dam line in Arabian horse breeding plays a major role in a successful breeding program. When Dr. Robert Williams and John Brown of Rojo Arabians made the decision to purchase Precious as Gold in 1993, their breeding program would become one of the most significant over the next four decades.
Trussardi, like the immortal Versace, is a son of Precious As Gold, an Aristocrat mare who produced six foals; four won at the National Level, one was Regional Reserve Champion, and one was unshown.
It is almost impossible for a mare line to achieve the same status as that of a sire line due to the limited number of foals they have historically produced. Such was not the case with Precious. The high percentage of show winners was not to stop in a single generation; Precious would shine through the prepotency of her two sons, Versace and Trussardi, over the next several decades. Precious' legacy will be carried on through Trussardi under the ownership of Darkside Arabians.
