Salam Al Khalediah wins again, Derby odds lowering for Hamal

Ofir Stakes for 4+ years old ended like nearly everybody expected. From start to finisz the race was led by a favorite, 7 years old SALAM AL KHALEDIAH. Janów Stakes determined the new great pretender to this year’s Derby win.

Ridden by Szczepan Mazur SALAM AL KHALEDIAH (Nashwan Al Khalidiah – Quesche du Paon/Akbar) controlled the pace all along, winning very easily by 3.5 lengths. The winner belongs to AKF Poland and he is trained by Maciej Kacprzyk. The colt was followed by last year Derby winner DRAGON (Dahess – Djaima/Nonius), bred and owned by Mr. Zbigniew Górski. There was a struggle for a third place between the experienced Janów’s BANDOLERO (Portmer – Botura/Samsheik) and the only one 4-year-old in the field, Austrian-bred TABARAK’S ELVIRA (Tabarak – Elea/Dormane). The colt won by no more than a nose.

The second of Sunday’s big races, Janów Stakes, had more thrilling course and determined a new favorite for this year’s Derby. In the field of eleven, all eyes were turned to the recent Kabaret Stakes winner, WIELKI DAKRIS (Mared Al Sahra – Wielka Damira/Ontario HF). However, after lots of trouble in the distance, in the final straight he had overlarge margin to the leaders. Great finish was shown by HAMAL (Jaafer ASF – HN Mira/Marvin El Samawi), Martin Srnec in the saddle, who won easily. ALNNAJM (Mared Al Sahra – Arwima/Wachlarz) bred and owned  by Mr. Zbigniew Górski, Hamal’s stable mate AL NAIRA (Marvin El Samawi – Al Risha/Manganello), MUSAB (Asraa Min Albarq – Muna/Nougatin) and recovering Wielki Dakris competed for the second place. Alnnajm placed by a nose before Wielki Dakris, followed by Al Naira and Musab. Janów Stakes was a prove that the in the case of the best 4-year-olds anything is possible.

Congratulations to all involved in the success, with a special shoutout to our members – AKF Poland and Mr. Zbigniew Górski.

Polish highlights in Menton

Despite the pandemics, organizers succeeded to conduct one of the most popular shows of the year - Menton Mediterranean and Arab Countries Arabian Horse Championship. Polish exhibitors were absent in France, but many Polish-bred stars appeared in the ring. WILDONA after a spectacular win in the class was chosen Reserve Senior Champion Mare.

Michałów’s WILDONA (Shanghai EA – Wilda/Gazal Al Shaqab), currently on lease to Al Sheikh Stud has been showered with excellent scores, receiving a stunning number of 11 twenties, including unanymous „20” for type. In the championship she was surpassed by only 6 years old Mozn Albidayer, later chosen Best Female in Show.

In the class of 7 years and older mares we watched Janów-bred trio: owned by Nina Suskievicova  PILAROSA (Al Adeed Al Shaqab – Pilar/Fawor) and BINDUGA (Kahil Al Shaqab – Bigamia/Ekstern), placed second and fifth, followed by Irina Stigler’s ESPARTA (Poganin – Epoka/Pohaniec), placed sixth.
ATIUS O (Shahim Al Nakeeb – Atia oOne/Johann El Jamaal), brought to Europe by Mr. Czesław Gołaszewski and presented by Paweł Kozikowski, won the oldest stallions class, receiving – as usual – all five „20” for movement. He returns from the show with Senior Stallions Bronze Medal.

Congratulations to all involved – and see you next year.

Big surprise in Kabaret Stakes, no surprise in Bandos Stakes

Last weekend another two stakes were ran at Służewiec Racetrack: Kabaret Stakes for 4-year-olds and Bandos Stakes for 4+-year-olds. The first one brought rather unexpected results with a win of Wielki Dakris. In the latter one Shadwan Al Khalediah added yet another win to his impressive record of 11:10-1-0. 

In the numerous field of 12 of Kabaret Stakes (2200 m) three foreign-bred horses had the lowest odd, that is: Moscow Derby winner SEIFUL MULIUK (RU), the best 3-year-old of 2019 TABARAK'S ELVIRA (AT) and consistent GATSBY DE BOZOULS (FR). Unexpectedly bookmakers' favorites were surpassed by Polish-bred WIELKI DAKRIS (Mared Al Sahra - Wielka Damira/Ontario HF), who, ridden by champion jockey Szczepan Mazur, won by a 1/2 lenghts to Seiful Muliuk. The grey colt is bred and owned by Mr. Krzysztof Zakolski, and trained by Adam Wyrzyk. This success made him one of the great pretenders to this year's Derby.

Sunday's Bandos Stakes (2200 m) went completely according to bookmakers' odds. SHADWAN AL KHALEDIAH (Nashwan Al Khalidiah - Quesche du Paon/Akbar), again with Szczepanem Mazur in the saddle won very easily, leaving in the field last year's Derby winner DRAGON, stablemate ANOOD AL KHALEDIAH and Janów's BANDOLERO. AKF Poland's 8 years old stallion is trained by Maciej Kacprzyk.

Comet Prize: continuing superiority of Salam Al Khalediah

Bookmakers' favorite, SALAM AL KHALEDIAH, noted an easy win in the first stakes of 2020, Comet Prize (26 250 PLN, 2000 m), confirming his name of the best older racing Arabian in Poland. 

In the interesting field of 8 (last year's derby winner DRAGON bred and owned by Z. Górski was withdrawn) the eyes of the spectators was turned to: 7-years-old SALAM AL KHALEDIAH, one of the AKF Poland Stables leading stars, strong and consistent BANDOLERO bred and owned by Janów Podlaski State Stud, and to the best 3-years-old of 2019, TABARAK’S ELVIRA bred and owned by E. Chat. Debuting on the turf, Moscow Derby winner SEIFUL MULUK bred and owned by R.O. Hahalev was a riddle for many.

Despite the highest weight in the field (63 kg, turf condition good) SALAM AL KHALEDIAH met the role of the favorite and under S. Mazur noted an easy win, leading from the start, with good finishing time of 2’20”4. He was followed by BANDOLERO, ridden by his trainer S. Vasyutov. SEIFUL MULUK won the third place, passing Salam's stable companion ANOOD AL KHALEDIAH by a neck.

The only 2020 Derby potential contender,  HAMAL, was 7, losing more than 20 lengths to the winner.
