Ruski is from the renowned Norman Pentaquad sire line and from the family of Hall of Fame mare Pinky. His pedigree includes the great mares La Luna, Pinky, Dinghy, Cruiser, Sheltie and Blue with close relations Claret, Spinnaker, Yacht and Clarity.
He combines the two legendary mares La Luna, regarded as the greatest playing and producing mare in Argentina and similarly for Pinky in Australia.

In June 2018 – Ruski’s mother Cruiser made a stunning UK debut, winning BPP in her first tournament. The prize was presented by the Queen to her 10 goal player Adolfo Cambiaso, after winning the Royal Windsor tournament. Adolfo turned the ball on her on the backline and then completely out ran the whole team to score a stunning full length of the field goal. Cambiaso then took her to Argentina to win the Argentine Open with his 40 goal team La Dolfina. The fact he actually played her in his string with the Cuartetera clones simply speaks volumes of what he thought of her.
In 2019 her full brother Skiff wins the same prize for BPP at same Royal Windsor tournament!
Ruski started well in young horse chukkas in 2016.
