Today was the final day of the Junior Spring Show held in Białka. Gold medals went to: EMANDENOR (yearling colts), PERSIA TOUCH SW (yearling fillies), EL SHAAD (junior colts) and POGANINKA (junior fillies). POGANINKA also received the title of Best in Show.
More than half of the available medals were won by Michałów Stud (7). Two went to Janów Podlaski Stud, two to private breeders and one stayed in Białka. It's worth noting that both of the "private" medals were of the golden color and their winners were trained and shown by Paweł Kozikowski.
The results of the Białka show will definitely please the organizers of the summer sales. Each one of them offers a dam of today's gold medalist. The Pride of Poland Sale (13.08.2017) offers the mare PENTRA (dam of POGANINKA) and the Cracow Arabian Horse Sale (10.09.2017) offers the mare EL ESTRADA - dam of EL SHAAD.
