1150 Gaigysyz, dark buckskin, was born 28.1.1988 in studfarm
Komsomol, Turkmenistan. He raced in Ashkhabad as a 2 years
old (one race, without place, time - 1000 m: 1.14,4).
His name he got by the first chief of Turkmen republic during
Soviet Era, Gaigysyz Atabaev.
To his pedigree - his great-grandfather 742 Kermek 7 came
to Turkmenistan from Kazakhstan, in 1965 born by him the colt
882 Kalkan. Then for a long long time nothing happend. Then
in 1971 born colt Kermek 2nd, very small (150 cm in withers),
but with a lot of type and correct conformation. He raced to
his 5 years, from 22 starts he won 7 times. Ryabova recommended
him for breeding, but no Turkmen farm was interested, due to
his height. Finally bought him Ashkhabad Hippodrom, but he
got only two
mares, Fialka and Pakhta. Out of Fialka then born Karaman, out of Pakhta excellent
Unfortunately Kermek 2nd in 1979 tragically died (after the
20 km journey from one kolkhoz to Ashkhabad hippodrom, he died
the following day).
Karaman was badly schooled and during schooling he was very
seriously injured (cut the right hind leg to the bone), so
he didn´t race.
Ryabova persuaded the breeders from Komsomol studfarm to use
him in breeding - his offspring was very typey, quite good
on racetrack, but very small, so Karaman was used very rarely.
After the one unsuccesful Gaigysyz race, he would be probably
forgotten somewhere in studfarm. But, one Russian breeder,
Mr.Potokin, payed for the stallion Sak and other group of horses
from Komsomol, but they didn´t want to give him the horses
which he chose. Finally he had to choose Gaigysyz and Djeikhun.
As Potokin didn´t have so many mares, he offered later
to use the stallions in Stavropol, where both of them gave
Gaigysyz was graded elite in 2000 (elite of 2nd category),
his gradings are 7 for pedigree, 8 for type, 7 for measures,

and it is offered for sale (for 2.000 euro).
