This could get me shot in certain circles, but "a lot of Nazeer" is not necessarily what one wants in a sport horse. Make sure you like the legs, feet, and hindquarter angulation. (I never saw Furno Khamal in person, so this comment isn't specific to him as a sire.)

I owned a *Furno khamal daughter. She was a lovely mare with a SI injury that made only pasture sound after a trailering accident. She didn't have perfect legs, but had been born significantly windswept. She was big (15.2h), solid mare with a very pretty head. She had a lovely temperment, but like many russian bred arabians, would not pity fools and was an alpha mare. I sold her back to her breeder after I stopped breeding. I would have been happy to keep her as a pasture pet for the rest of her life, but she sure did have some nice big foals. She needed to be bred to a stallion with a good hip, and well shaped neck.
Many of her siblings and related foals have gone on to do very well at SHN and main ring events.
I visited the Michigan farm and saw him in about 2000. He was an impressive, very large Arabian. There were nice babies, but I really didn't know enough to truly evaluate. I hope the mare you're seeing is nice. How tall is she?
I owned a FK daughter and currently own a gelding out of her. Both are 15.2h. The mare had a slight club foot, but a great disposition and type. The breeder bought her back from me as she is a full sister to their best mare. I have never heard that he was a SCID carrier. Here is a video of my FK daughter:
