NY Stallion Anasheed to Russia

Son of A.P. Indy and champion Flagbird sold for stallion duty in Russia

Anasheed, a 10-year-old son of A.P. Indy, has been sold for stallion duty in Russia. He formerly stood at Michael Lischin’s Dutchess Views Farm near Pine Plains, N.Y. Anasheed, out of European champion Flagbird (by Nureyev), departed quarantine for his new home in Russia in late February.

“The Russian market puts a heavy emphasis on world-class pedigrees,” said Lischin, who brokered the deal. “We have found great demand there for this type of stallion and for that matter for similarly bred mares. The export process to Russia is somewhat complex but for the right horse it is worth it.”

Anasheed, who was graded stakes-placed, has sired 14 winners, including multiple stakes winner Garter Belt.

Anasheed is a half-brother to the stakes-placed dam of grade I winner Little Belle.
