Marwan Al Shaqab is the son of stallion Gazal Al Shaqab (Anaza El Farid x Kajora by Kaborr), and out of Little Liza Fame (Fame VF x Katahza by Aza Destiny). He was foaled in 2000 in Qatar, and was shown in 2001 as a yearling. He was then sold overseas, first to breeder Eric Dorses, then to the Spanish breeder Marieta Salas of Ses Planes farm. During the spring of 2002 the two-year-old stallion was bred to 10 mares at Ses Planes, resulting in 9 foals by him born in 2003. In May 2002, he was shown in the Nations Cup, the European Championship and the World Championship, he was named Jr. Champion at each and therefore also won the informal European "Arabian Triple Crown." He then returned to the United States, where he stood at trainer Michael Byatt’s facility in Houston, Texas. Handled by Byatt, Marwan Al Shaqab became 2003 U.S. Jr. National Champion Stallion; a title he would win again in 2005. [1]

In 2009, he returned to Al Shaqab stud farm, in his birthplace of Qatar.
