Inschallah was a French-bred grey Anglo Arab (36% Arab) who was exported from France to Oldenburg, where he became the most important sire next to Furioso II at the famous Vorwerk stallion station in Cappeln. Inschallah stood from 1970 to 1990 at Gestüt Vorwerk.

In 1972 he won his stallion performance test in Westercelle. Inschallah AA sired 30-some licensed sons, more than 70 premium mares, and a great number of horses that were highly successful in sport.
