Stallion and Jockey: Great, Unique Personalities

Stallion and Jockey: Great, Unique Personalities

Krasnodar, 17 May – Yug Times. Two symbolic events for the history of the Krasnodar region are going to happen soon: the 100th anniversary of the Vostok Stud Farm, and the 90th birthday of the great jockey Nikolai Nasibov.

The only place where this stallion with a proudly tossed white-striped head can be met these days is the label of the brandy Grand Prix distilled in Novokubansk.

Few people would know that the head on the label belonged to Anilin, a famous runner and a three-time winner of the European Cup, aka Grand Prix for the racing horses. One year, Anilin managed to gain a half of the Soviet Agricultural Ministry’s annual hard-currency revenue and made his birthplace, the Vostok Stud Farm in Novokubansk, a global breeding centre of thoroughbred saddler horses.

Anilin was born in 1961 in Novokubansk, Krasnodar region. He took part in horse races only for three years - but what years they were!

He was a huge British thoroughbred, a wayward and sometimes even aggressive horse. Eyewitnesses said that he would never be the first at the very start - but when his mighty torso picked up such a hurricane speed that even a rapid camera could not fix the movements of his hooves, he started dashing for the homestretch. Anilin participated in most prestigious horse-races in Europe and the world. Their plots have been described and analyzed for lots of times. The experts tried to comprehend the secret of matching the stallion’s natural gift with the tactics of his jockey Nikolai Nasibov.

Anilin and Nasibov cannot be set apart - the fate as if made them meet on purpose by uniting them into an outstanding phenomenon in the world’s equestrian sports.
