Orgia Fata (Chndaka – HF Olympia) confirmed that she is a worthy successor of her ancestors. The pupil of Longin Błachut repeated the success of her great-granddam Orla, who won the Criterium Stakes twice in 1965 and 1966. As we mentioned previously, Orgia Fata’s granddam – Orgia – also noted a win in this race in 1975. In the history of this race only two fillies won it twice: Dywersja (in 1928 and 1929) and the mentioned Orla. Now this elite group is joined by the athletic filly trained by Dorota Kałuba – Orgia Fata.
After the withdrawal of Ghazallah the startline saw seven horses. The race was led by Natea and Engamoon. Behind them were: Elpas, New Man, Wadi Nur, Orgia Fata and Chazala. Prior to coming into the last turn Natea began to weaken and Engamoon took the lead. On the bend Natea was overtaken by the rest of the horses. The final straight was led out by the finishing New Man and Orgia Fata and Chazala set off in his footsteps. Elpas and Engamoon weakened and fell behind. About 200 m before the post Orgia Fata took the lead, while Wadi Nur began his finish, going wide. The colt attacked the filly on the final meters – but lost by a head in a fight.
The owner of the winning filly, Longin Błachut, told polskiearaby.pl:
„Due to work duties I couldn’t personally see this fascinating race. But Orgia Fata raised the standard extremely high for my humble breeding program. I’m positive that the races will take place in the years to come. I hope that with some luck the young horses from my stud, such as Sasanka Fata (Sam Tiki – HF Sequoia by Origan), Mukta Fata (KA Czubuthan – Minerva by Santhos) and Orczata Fata (Aragonne HF – HF Olympia by Monarch AH), half-sister to the Triple-Crown winner, will have a chance to follow her footsteps and demonstrate valor and their will to fight just like true Arabian battle horses.”
