As usual, there was no numerous Polish representation amongst the youngest fillies. Michałów State Stud showed half-sister to EQUATOR, the chestnut EL BELISSIMA (Ascot DD – Ekliptyka/Ekstern), while Janów – BENONA (Ascot DD – Bernadetta/Ganges). Both fillies finished their performances at the class level.
Section B of 2-year-olds brang us the first championship qualifiers. 4 Polish fillies were placed in the Top 5. Magnificent ERALDA (Emaerald J – Enezja/Marajj), bred by Krzysztof Goździalski – Falborek Arabians claimed the first place with fantastic score of 4x20 for type and 4x20 for movement. Michałów’s PARANTELLA (Kahil Al Shaqab – Palanga/Ekstern) was third, MARKIZA OF JUSTICE (WH Justice – Markiza of Marwan/Marwan Al Shaqab), bred and owned by Małgorzata and Józef Pietrzak was fourth, while Janów’s TACJANA (Ascot DD – Tartina/Perseusz) finished fifth.
Michałów’s EMANOLLA (Vitorio TO – Emandoria/Gazal Al Shaqab) was the best amongst three-year-olds. Our second representative, WIEŻA CZARÓW (Vitorio TO – Wieża Marzeń/Ekstern), bred by Michałów State Stud and owned by Marek Rzepka, also finished in the Top 5.
In the championship ERALDA repeated her wonderful performance, ultimately claiming gold. Michałów’s EMANOLLA also finished in the Top 5.
Polish 4- and 5-year-olds took an entire Top 3. WILDONA (Shanghai EA – Wilda/Gazal Al Shaqab) from Michałów State Stud unexpectedly beat her better-known studmate, PUSTYNIA KAHILA (Kahil Al Shaqab – Pustynna Malwa/Ekstern), claiming 5x20 for movement and 4x20 for type. Janów’s ADELITA (Kahil Al Shaqab – Altamira/Ekstern) was third.

Parys (2nd place), Janów’s PALATINA (QR Marc – Palmeta/Ecaho and ESIMA (Altis – Emanta/Pamir), bred by Krzysztof Goździalski and owned by Halsdon Arabians. 10+ years old mares class contained only one participant – BIRUTA (Ekstern – Bajada/Pamir), bred by Janów Podlaski State Stud and owned by Halsdon Arabians.
Class order was repeated during the championship and the result turned out quite dreamy for Polish breeding. WILDONA returns home as a new European Champion, while PUSTYNIA KAHILA – as a new European Reserve Champion.
Geldings were shown immediately in the championship. The bronze medal was awarded to 7-years-old POSTAR (Om El Belissimo – Pomerania/Gazal Al Shaqab), bred by Janów Podlaski State Stud.
In section A Białka’s PARILLUS (Ascot DD – Parilla/Enzo) nearly made it to the Top 5, ultimately finishing 6th. In the second section Janów’s ERANTIS (Ascot DD – Eugara/Om El Belissimo) claimed good 4th place, while grey EMAR AVI (Empire – El Medisa/Shanghai EA), bred and owned by Czesław Gołaszewski – Regina Arabians was 7th.
We had only one, but very classy representative of 2-year-olds. EL VALENTINO (Excalibur EA – Etiffani/Justify), bred by Wojciech Parczewski – Best Arabians, claimed the Class Top 5. Michałów’s three years old DASTAN (Equator – Dama Pik/Enzo) performed even better, finishing in the third place.
In the 8-10 year olds class, under the absence of AJA ANGELO there was no competition for Michałów’s EQUATOR (QR Marc – Ekliptyka/Ekstern), who claimed 5x20 for type and 5x20 for movement, winning the class with 1,80 points advantage (93,80 – the highest score of the show!).

In the class of 4- and 5-year-olds Janów’s PITAWAL (Kahil Al Shaqab – Pepita/Ekstern) was placed in the Top 5.
Polish stallions outstood the stake also in the oldest (11+) class, won by Michałów’s LISSAR (Gazal Al Shaqab – Larissa/Eukaliptus), who was followed by 2nd ALBANO (Enzo – Alena/Emigrant), bred by Janów Podlaski State Stud.
