Another show that was held over the past weekend (April 30th-May 1st) was the St. Petersburg International Cup (C). The classes were small, to say the least: for example the 9 year old and above stallions class had one contestant, whereas the yearling colts and 9 year old and above mares just two each. The Russian show was graced by a large representation of State Stud horses: BALLENA (Kahil Al Shaqab - Belgica/Gazal Al Shaqab), bred and owned by Janów Podlaski, won the 3 year old fillies class with a rather low score of 88,9, which translated to a silver medal in the junior mares category. The Białka bred and owned MILIAN (Lawrence El Gazal - Mila/Ararat) placed second in the two year old colts class (89,2) and later went on to claim the bronze in the junior stallions category.
The senior mare medals were divided between Janów Podlaski: the gold went to ETIRA (Eden C - Etnologia/Gazal Al Shaqab), winner of the 4-5 year old mares class (90,7), the silver was awarded to ESPARTA (Poganin - Epoka/Pilot), winner of the 6-8 year old mares class (90,9, including a "20" for type), whereas the bronze was secured by BERNADETTA (Ganges - Belgica/Gazal Al Shaqab), second in class (89,6) behind Esparta. The only contestant of the 9 year old and above stallions class, Janów's ALMANZOR (El Nabila B - Alantina/Emigrant), received 91 pts (including two "20s" for movement) and the senior stallion bronze medal. His Białka stablemate, CEFIR (Eryks - Celina/Metropolis NA) won the 4-5 year old stallions class claiming 91,2 pts (including three "20s" for movement) and placed fourth in the finals.
Apart from horses representing Polish colours there were also those previously exported: EL MEGANA (Ganges - Ellanda/Wojsław), bred by Michałów and owned by M. Timin (Russia), placed third in the 4-5 year old mares class and GIRLAN BEY (Pesal - Gracja-Bis/Monogramm), bred by M. Bogajewicz, owned by Reza Alhadadi (Iran), who won the 9 year old and above stallions class with the show's highest score (92,9 pts, including four "20s" for movement) and ultimately the senior stallion gold medal.
