Górski, behind him was the Swedish GAZELLO (Nougatin – Gordaia/Damask) and third - the Russian PROPOVEDNIK SIVER (Duglas – Prepona/Prikaz). Polish-bred horses - ESTARION (Ontario HF – Esteria/Pamir) and SERGIO (Sabat – Salara/Borek) - took fourth and fifth place, respectively.
That same the Errlis Prize for 3 year old Arabian horses of the 1st group over 1,600 m was won by the Polish0bred SHANNON QUEEN - by the French Ainhoa St Faust, but out of Sasanka Fata, a mare descending from the famous racing "S" damline of Janów Podlaski. She bested two French colts: JASER (Akim de Ducor – Membola/Barkas) and ZAHAAB (Mahabb – Madone de Piboul/Dormane).
