Royal StudEdit

Kisber was home to the 15,648-acre (63.33 km2) Imperial-Royal Stud where a Thoroughbred racehorse named for the town was bred under the supervision of Stud's manager, Count Zoest. Foaled in 1873, Kisber raced in England where in 1876 he won that country's most prestigious race, The Derby. He was then sent to Paris where he won France's most important race, the Grand Prix de Paris.[2]
