Bred by Tersk Stud, Russia. 50% Crabbet. Exported to Poland in 1962. Race winner in Poland. Race record: 1/4 (2-0-0). Sire of many race winners. Died 1973. Sire line: Ibrahim Dam line: Gazella DB 1954 Russian National Champion Stallion Credited as the stallion that returned the Ibrahim sire to Poland, Negatiw remains highly regarded around the world as the most internationally influential grandson of the immortal Skowronek. Though bred in Russia, Negatiw was from predominantly Polish bloodlines as his dam was a Janˇw Podlaski confiscate from the Second World War. As a considerably successful sire at Tersk, Negatiw was greatly desired by the Poles for many years. He was finally obtained at age 17, standing in Poland for another 10 years with outstanding results. Having already sired international Sires of Significance *Salon and *Nabor in the USSR, Negatiw left Poland with the immortal *Bandos and a host of wonderfully typey, ultra-refined and extraordinarily feminine broodmares. Director Krzysztalowicz described Negatiw as ┤extremely dry and refined, with a small, chiseled head accented by beautifully large, dark and luminous eyes and small ears. His legs were relatively correct (though slightly sickle-hocked) and his back and topline were strong and a bit long. As a stallion, he was strikingly refined and distinguished - he represented a rare example of perfection.
