The first day of the World Championships was all about the mares. Polish breeding was represented by mares from Michałów Stud - five owned by the stud and one under the banner of new owners.
In the A series of the yearling fillies EMANOLLA (Vitorio TO - Emandoria/Gazal Al Shaqab) placed sixth. In the 2-3 year old fillies class EL LARINERA (Empire - El Emeera/Ekstern) came in eighth (series A), while in series B GALERIDA (Shanghai E.A. - Galilea/Laheeb) finished third and PUSTYNIA KAHILA (Kahil Al Shaqab - Pustynna Malwa/Ekstern) sixth.
In series A of the senior mares WIEŻA MARC'A (QR Marc - Wieża Marzeń/Ekstern), currently owned by Sinus Arabian Stud, secured second place and one "20" for movement. In the B series of the same category EMMONA (Monogramm - Emilda/Pamir) placed third and received two "20s" for her movement.
With that EMANOLLA, GALERIDA, WIEŻA MARC'A and EMMONA qualified for the Sunday finals and have already secured the titles of Top Ten.
The State Stud of Bait Al Arab hosted the Kuwait National Championships on November 11-12th. Almost 300 horses were entered for the show, with some classes divided into as many as three or even four series.
Such a large group could not do without strong Polish accents. The mare NIMBA (Ekstern - Nefer/Ecaho) bred by Janów Podlaski, was chosen Senior Gold Champion Mare Nimba was sold to Kuwait at the 2010 Summer Sale. Whereas the bronze medal in the same category went to PERLAHABA (Al Lahab - Pernacja/Ekstern), bred by Falborek Arabians, sold at the 2013 Pride of Poland Sale.
Polish breeding also contributed to two gold medals in the yearling categories: JAWAHER LEMAR (Empire - Lanckorona/Poganin) was chosen as Junior Gold Champion Mare and JAWAHER GHAZY (Kahil Al Shaqab - Gizelda/Ekstern) as Junior Gold Champion Stallion.
Also worth mentioning are class winners out of Polish mares: F FAISAL (colt foals A, out of the Janów mare Polihymnia), SAHEL ALKONOOZ (colt foals B, out of Cicha Woda bred by A. Piwowarski) and FARAULA J (mares 11 years old and above, by Ekstern out of the Kurozwęki mare Fifa).
Michałów State Stud informs that in the 2017 breeding season only 5 outside breedings to Ekstern will be available. This decision has been made due to a high demand among breeders for the stallion's semen, as well as adjusted to the advanced age of the stallion.
Each of the above mentioned outside breedings to Ekstern will be offered at the Winter Arabian Horse Sale, which will take place at Michałów Stud on December 10th, 2016. The stud informs that this will be the only opportunity to purchase a breeding to Ekstern for the 2017 season.
A complete list of horses offered at the Winter Arabian Horse Sale is available now at www.stadninamichalow.pl.
The Autumn sale at Michałów Stud took place on November 5th. The sale was conducted in the form of a public auction, with the director of the stud himself, Maciej Grzechnik, taking over the duties of auctioneer.
More than 80% of the offered horses were sold, including 27 Arabians. The highest price was given for the year old EMANNDIA (Kahil Al Shaqab - Emandilla/Om El Shahmaan) - 49 thousand PLN.
The sale attracted many people. Lots of them took their time to carefully inspect the horses and 14 registered as buyers. The next occasion to purchase a horse from Michałów will come in December, during the Winter Arabian Horse Sale on 10.12.2016.
The Stud has also published detailed Conditions of the Auction.
