Most Expensive Arabian
Today, the most expensive Arabian is believed to be the stallion, Marwan Al Shaqab. The jewel in the crown of the Qatari royal stables, the show horse won the World Arabian Horse Championships three times and the US National Arabian Championships twice. He has also won the European Arabian Championships, the All Nations Cup and was leading sire at the World Arabian Horse Championships seven years in a row.
According to Michael Byatt, of Michael Byatt Arabians, a syndicate offered $20 million to buy him, but the proposal was flat out rejected. Currently, his stud fee stands at $24,000, and he fathers about 50 foals a year, many of whom have gone on to become champions in their own right.
