On the 7th and 8th of September in Michałowice near Cracow for the 4th time the Cracow Arabian Horse Show (ECAHO C-Int.) took place. Many guest exhibitors from abroad and even more local spectators were seen in a Szary Riding Club. Before halter classes, we could also cheer arabian horses under the saddle.
Only a class (without a championship formula) was conducted. The highest score went to KORAB (Pegasus - Karbala), a pretty successful riding horse as well. The second place, thanks to a high move score, was taken by WILTON (El Gazal - Wołogda).

One of the events of the European Al Khalediah Arabian Horse Festival is a special Arabian Day at the Służewiec Racetrack. On August 18th Europa Stakes (2600, G3 PA), Al Khalediah Poland Cup (1600, Listed PA), Białka Stakes (2000, 52 500 PLN) or Sabellina Stakes (2000, 29 750 PLN) were posted.
In the richest (148 750 PLN) race of the day, Europa Stakes, the money was all on SALAM AL KHALEDIAH (Nashwan Al Khalidiah - Quesche du Paon/Akbar). He fulfilled the expectations and, with a great help from the pacemaker SAHM AL KHALEDIAH (Nayef Al Khalidiah - Sabbat Al Khalediah/Tiwaiq), beat the second BANDOLERO (Portmer - Botura/Samsheik) by no less than 7 lengths. Derby-winner DRAGON (Dahess - Djaima/Nonius) lost the third place in last strides to speedy NESMA AL MELS (Akbar - Jelifa Al Mels/Regal de Khan).

Three fillies were in charge in the Al Khalediah Poland Cup sprint. Bookmakers’ favorite last year’s winner, unbeaten in Poland GENERAL LADY (General - Rivale d’Enfer/Dormane) wasn’t able to keep up with the killer pace made by BASALAH AL KHALEDIAH (Nayef Al Khalidiah - Jaleelat Al Khalidiah/Tiwaiq). It was a great opportunity to ANOOD AL KHALEDIAH (Nayef Al Khalidiah - Shaza Al Khalidiah/Khalid El Biwaibiya), who won almost effortlessly. Basalah turned out to be strong enough to defend the second place from General Lady.

Another filly surprised the bidders in Sabelina Stakes. The odds were biggest for last year’s Oaks winner SWEET DREAM (Murhib - Soleil Kossack/Marwan I). Unexpectedly SPECIAL ‘OA’ (Murhib - Sadjella/Djebbel) was powerful enough to pick up a home straight fight with her and beat her by a neck in the finish line.

Despite big competition from abroad (especially Middle East), took no less than 8 medals. Morover, the Best in Show title went to Polish-bred mare EKSPULSJA (Gazal Al Shaqab – Elandra).
There were 16 fillies in the ring. Group A was won by FK GHALYAH (Fayad Alfayyad – Panonia), while group B – by D SHAMKHAH (Fa El Rasheem – FT Shaella). Third places in both groups were takien by Polish horses: EL FARIDA (RFI Farid – Esmeta) bred and owned by A. Najmowicz and GOYA (Wadee Al Shaqab – Giness) bred and owned by W. Bąk. But the championship was completely owned by UAE fillies. It is worth to mention that first two places were taken by full sisters!

Białka and Janów champion colt STAR FARID (RFI Farid – EKS Star of Africa) placed second in the class and then lost the bronze by a small margin of judges’ points.

In group B PROTEKCJA (Ekstern – Pentra) unexpectedly won over renowned ENCARINA (Ascot DD – Enerina). In the class of 3 years old fillies – group B the first place went to PARANTELLA (Kahil Al Shaqab – Palanga), while third – to TACJANA (Ascot DD – Tartina).

In the group A of 4-6 years old mares the first place went to PRUNELLA (Abyad AA – Pradera). In the group B PUSTYNIA KAHILA (Kahil Al Shaqab – Pustynna Malwa) was unexpectedly outtaken by FUTURE (Kahil Al Shaqab – Fortycja), who scored impressive 93,13.
In the first group of 7 years and older mares this year’s national champion WIEŻA MOCY (QR Marc – Wieża Marzeń) was shown, but ultimately placed second behind JV NERINA (Kadar’s Echoo – Niimah). In the group B mentioned before Best in Show prize winner EKSPULSJA (Gazal Al Shaqab – Elandra) was a competition only for herself, winning with the score of 93,75. PSYCHE KREUZA (Ekstern – Pallas Atena), with four „twenties” for movement, placed just behind her.
Ultimately, all of the championhip Top 5 turned out to be Polish-bred:

The class of 4-6 years olds was won by CALATEON (Vitorio TO – Calatea), followed by EMPOWER (WH Justice – Eksterna). The seven years and older class brought us the thrill of current World Senior Champion Stallion performance. EQUATOR (QR Marc – Ekliptyka) didn’t let down the audience and surely, with a margin of 1,5 points, three „20” for type and four „20” for movement, won the class and then (unanimously) the championship.

The judges were pretty busy, as 116 horses were entried, and 103 of them appeared in the show ring. This year, for the first time ever, there were also yearlings among them.
On Friday we started with male classes. The first group of yearling colts was taken by storm by RFI Farid sons, bred and owned by W. Parczewski – the first place was claimed by current Białka yearling champion STAR FARID (out of EKS Star Africa/Marwan Al Shaqab) and second by WOLARE (out of Wieża Marii/El Omari). The other group was won by Michałów’s POINTER (Sahm El Arab – Palanga/Ekstern).
Janów’s ERANTIS (Ascot DD – Eugara/Om El Belissimo) and Białka’s BELMARI (El Omari – Bint Ermina/Kabsztad) received even scores (90,67) in the two years old colts class and ultimately Erantis won the first place by type.
Bred and owned by J. Ryżkowski AMES JR (Psytadel – Altara/Gazal Al Shaqab), returning from racing training, received the highest score among three year olds, overtaking CHAOS URIEL (Psyche Keret – Chaos Persefona/Poganin) bred and owned by K. Poszepczyński – Chrcynno Pałac Stud.
Janów Podlaski State Stud outstood the competition in the stallions classes - PITAWAL (Kahil Al Shaqab – Pepita/Ekstern) was first among 4-6 year olds, while POMIAN (Gazal Al Shaqab – Pilar/Fawor) won the 7+ year olds class.
Pomian then confirmed his value as a sire – next day the first class of yearling fillies was won by his daughter APLIA (od Anima/Ekstern), who slightly overtook her studmate BASILIA. Both fillies are bred and owned by Janów Podlaski State Stud. In the second group of yearling fillies the first place went, by the other hand, to Michałów State Stud. The highest score was obtained by their FLORISSIMA (Sahm El Arab – Forgissima/Vitorio TO). AMIRATA (EKS Alihandro – Alhasa/Ganges) from Janów Podlaski finished second.
There were also two groups of two years old fillies. In the first one, without any surprise, the highest score was received by Białka Junior Champion Filly ENCARINA (Ascot DD – Eneria/QR Marc) bred and owned by Janów Podlaski State Stud, while in the second – by Michałów’s EL BELISSIMA (Ascot DD – Ekliptyka/Ekstern). Just behind them placed PAPROTNIA (Elgast – Paeksa/Ekstern) bred and owned by L. Błaszczyk and PROTEKCJA (Ekstern – Pentra/Poganin) bred and owned by Michałów State Stud. It is worth to mention that both that El Belissima and Protekcja received even, very high scores (93,33).
ESPAJA (Aja Justified – Espanera/Kabsztad) bred and owned by P. Podgórny turned out to be the best among ten three years old fillies. Michałów’s PARANTELLA (Kahil Al Shaqab – Palanga/Ekstern) won the second place by type to KALIFORNIA (Kahil Al Shaqab – Karbona/Ekstern), bred and owned by K. Goździalski – Falborek Arabians.
The first group of 4-6 years old fillies was conquered by Michałów’s ZIGI ZARA (Shanghai EA – Zigi Zana/QR Marc), who overtook Janów’s ATAKAMA (Empire – Atma/Ekstern). In the other one the first two places went to Kahil Al Shaqab’s daughters – Janów’s PROMETIDA (out of Panonia/Eukaliptus) and FUTURE (out of Fortycja/Pegasus), bred and owned by A. Wójtowicz.
Coming next, Michałów’s mares won both groups of 7-10 year olds: EMANDORISSA (Abha Qatar – Emanda/Ecaho) and, returning to Polish showrings, WIEŻA MOCY (QR Marc – Wieża Marzeń/Ekstern). Second places and championship qualifications went to Janów’s PATERNA (Eden C – Pinga/Gazal Al Shaqab) and EUZONA (Om El Belissimo – Euzetia/Etogram).
On the other hand, the first two places in 11 years and older mares went to private owners: bred and owned by Falborek Arabians EKSTERNA (Ekstern – Emanta/Pamir) claimed first, while ELLISEINA (Ekstern – Ellissara/Laheeb) bred by Michałów State Stud and owned by Al Khalediah Poland – second place.

After the medal ceremonies there was nothing left but to choose the „Best in Show” and give all of the special prizes. Janów’s ENCARINA was chosen as „the best of the best”. Moreover, basing on classes’ scores, three horses claimed special prizes in four categories:
· Highest Score Mare – EL BELISSIMA
· Best Head – PROTEKCJA
· Best Mover – EL BELISSIMA
· Best in Show of Private Breeding – EKSTERNA
WAHO Challenge Trophy awarded to an Outstanding Representative of Polish Arabian Horse Breeding went to Janów’s PĘTLA – the dam of well-renowned stallion POGROM. BIGAMIA was chosen the Best Racehorse of the National Show. The prize for the best trainer went to Kamil Biernat, Gerald Kurtz was chosen the best handler, and Michałów State Stud claimed the best breeder award.
We would like to congratulate all of the successful breeders and owners, and particularly the members of our Association. What a great show it was!
This time the stallions, not the mares reached for championships medals. 3 years old EL VALENTINO bred by W. Parczewski, representing Al Shaqran Stud received 3rd place in Junior Colts Championship, while bred by M. Kondrasiuk and owned by Halsdon Arabians CALATEON got the same bronze medal in Senior Stallions Championship.
Despite winning 10+ years old mares class (91,42 points), bred by Michałów Stud and owned by Nina Suskevicova – Suweco Stud EMIRIONA finished the championship with no more than a special best movement prize. In the Senior Mares Championship we had also other Polish contenders, such as EBORA (the same breeder and owner as EMIRIONA); NAMIRAH KA, bred by Klarenbeek Arabians and owned by A. Janas-Naze; Hennesy Arabians’ Pepesza’s daughter H PEPA H owned by C. Gołaszewski; and HULINA bred by Białka Stud and owned by A. Janas-Naze-Blacklady Arabians.
Interesting performance was delivered by the only gelding in the show, 10 years old half-brother of Platinium World Champion Emandoria, EL EMANDO (by QR Marc). He received 91,33 points, including 3 x 20 for trot.
Another classes’ Top 5 contenders from Poland were as follows: yearling filly EFORA KL (QR Marc – Erigone) bred and owned by M. Rzepka – Klikowa Stud, 2 years old colt PIRENO bred and owned by P. Redestowicz, and 8 years old mare ENERINA, bred by S. Sławiński and owned by A. Janas-Naze – Blacklady Arabians.
Big congratulations to all the breeders and owners!
