    1. Besides Moscow there are several other cities in Russia that race at their Hippodromes. To name a few, Kazan, Rostov and Krasnodar. Every year the number and quality of horses in Russia are improving. Some of their top horse could compete in more internationally recognized racing venues.

  1. hi john..i know of at least 7 tracks there…you can see them if you click Central Moscow Hippodrome on the article above, which will take you to the website…then click home…you will see a list of upcoming events and the track name.

    1. Breeders are long-term clients. They only have a few mares, and also bred Tru Bull and Bull Market, by Holy Bull out of Capote Miss.

      Sire was a promising young horse at the time, and had a stakes winner (who subsequently became grade one winner Pampered Princess) out of a Crafty Prospector mare. I think his sire had also had Icecoldbeeratreds out of a Crafty Prospector mare.

      The mare is Raise a Native/Northern Dancer, a reverse cross to the broodmare sire of Indian Charlie, so that also looked promising.

      We had a good weekend with Indian Jameson, two other SW and a classic third!

  2. I think the most surprising part of this story is that 7 of the 10 runners are U.S. breds, including 3 of them by some our better stallions – Sky Mesa, More Than Ready, and Indian Charlie!

  3. I wonder if anyone can tell me more about the racing career of the great Russian horse of the 1960’s named Anilin? I know that he ran placed in a couple of Washington DC Internationals and that he also ran prominently in the 1965 Prix de l’arc de Triomphe behind the brilliant Sea Bird II. I believe that he is considered to be the greatest Russian racehorse of all time. I would very much appreciate any further information that anyone can provide me with on Anilin.
