January 1, 1990
During Perestroika
By 1990 the stud's herd numbered 480 breeding horses. But the beginning of the “time of troubles” forced administration to reconsider the plans of development and breeding work. The main problem was to survive and to save the most valuable livestock. It was solved partly miraculously and also due to the limitless love of the stuff to their horses.

However, despite all economic problems, at this period of time a mare Roxana got the Big three-year prize, twice won the “Elite” prize and established three All-Union records on a distance of 3200 metres. Its record has not been broken yet.
