From our Arieana Notebook: Nureddin II, one of the tallest imported purebred Arabians on early record, stood nearly 16 Hands with strength in proportion. Imported to the United States at an advanced age by Mr. Roger A. Selby for his Selby Stud in Portsmouth, Ohio, Nureddin II came to the United States with an important show record in England:1919 at Newmarket in Stallion Class 2nd to Dolmatscher and defeating Champion Skowronek; 1919, Ranelagh Stallion Class 1st over Yakoot and Skowronek; 1920 Royal Agricultural, Darlington, Stallions 1st; 1922 Ranelagh Stallions 1st defeating 7 others. (Dickinson, p. 60-61).

Nureddin II, often criticized for having a plain head and unattractive eyes, was not a plain horse. He had great Arabian style and bearing and is considered one of Crabbet's best broodmare sires. He added scope and size on their more refined lines, though indeed great care had to be taken to cross him only on mares with exceptional quality of head and neck. Sire 40 purebred registered foals (19 colts and 21 fillies) here in the United States, England, and Russia, including *Ferdin, *Nisreen, and *Nuri Pasha who are of mid-pedigree influence in the foundation bloodstock of Arieana Arabians.

(NB: This horse is not to be confused with Nureddin I GSB 445, a Bay Stallion foaled in 1903 sired by Daoud and also out of Narghileh. Bred by Lady Anne Blunt, Nureddin I may have died young; he left no registered foals.)
