1999 Australian Champion Stallion
Sarezin, the first foal bred by Elmridge, by the age of five had been crowned Australian Champion Stallion. He has continued the success story by siring the most wonderful progeny – purebreds and derivatives – from a wide variety of mares. Sarezin has world class progeny throughout Australia and in Europe.
At the AA 2009 Victorian Classic Sarezin won the prestigious Chipala Award for the Sire of the Most Successful Purebred Progeny.
Arabian Studs & Stallions 2013 lists Sarezin as the leading Domestic-bred sire of Purebred Halter winners at the Australian National Arabian Championships 2007-2012, and fourth in the overall standings.
Sarezin’s own enduring magnificence and his proven prepotency were not a random fluke. Sarezin is the result of careful mare and sire selection with no compromise on quality. When the starting point is Australian Champion Malmsbury Samira, by Amir El Shaklan out of the multi-Supreme show mare Sarika, bred to Simeon Sa’ar, by El Shaklan out of Australian Champion Damirah, success at the highest level is predictable and has been consistently achieved, both by Sarezin and his numerous outstanding progeny.
Sarezin was renowned for his wonderful temperament which he reliably passed on to his progeny. 16 hands of true horseman’s horse, he has won the award of Champion Hack in open company. Sarezin always enjoyed a rich, full, varied and natural life, combining saddle work with his stud duties. Sadly, in March 2018, we lost our wonderful boy but his heritage lives on in his descendants.
Elmridge Stud, on the outskirts of Sydney, NSW, is owned and run by mother and daughter team Lynden Franklin and Verity Smith.
