The Sunday classes at Białka were not as numerous as those on Saturday. Only 5 horses – of purely private breeding – were entered in the three year old colts class (III). The winner – Boreas by Metropolis NA, bred and owned by Wojciech Kowalik, had a huge point advantage over the remaining contenders. He was definitely much better prepared than his rivals and with a total score of 90,33 outdistanced the other colts in the Top Three: Enalej by Emigrant, owned by Beata Dzikowska (88,67) and Miły Pan by Piaff, bred and owned by Michał Bogajewicz (87,33).

Eleven two year old fillies presented themselves in the A series of class V. The Top Five consisted of three State Stud fillies and two privately bred ones. Yet another Janów-bred daughter of Altona (beside Atma, the victor of class IVA) was the winner – Alabama by Gazal Al Shaqab, who achieved a wonderful result of 91,33. Behind her placed Michałów’s Esidona by Galba (89,67), followed by Białka’s Cirilla by Ekstern (89,33). Closing off the best five spots were the daughters of Psytadel: Elfera, bred and owned by Lech Błaszczyk and Zingara, bred and owned by Katarzyna Dolińska.

In series B we witnessed 8 horses. This class decisively belonged to Michałów (three horses in the Top Four!) and it rained the first “20s” of the day. A “20” each for type and head & neck went to Janów’s Wołogda by Ekstern, who achieved a total score of 91 points. This allowed her to secure the second spot. The lead was taken away from her by the Michałów bred Galba daughter Golteria, who performed last and was evaluated at 91,33, with one “20” for movement. Third was Pentra by Poganin (89), fourth – Lanckorona, also by Poganin, who achieved the same score (including a “20” for movement), however a point less for type.

The competition in the three year old fillies class, which gathered 5 horses, was carried out between Białka and Chrcynno Stud. Both presented beautiful mares: Hermiona by Metropolis NA and Herlina by Ekstern (both from Białka) and Gaja Selene by Emigrant and Echo Afrodyta by Piaff (Chrcynno Stud). Herlina and Gaja Selene earned the same total score – 91 points, but Herlina had a point more for movement and with that she seized the top spot, before two fillies bred by Alicja Poszepczyńska of Chrcynno. It was the first class of the show won by the hosts, who right after invited the spectators to a special demonstration. They presented five mares from the family of the mare Pentoza (1978-2008), who spent 27 years in Białka and wrote herself down in the history of the stud as one of its greatest broodmatrons. Perforacja (dam of Pesal), Perfirka, Pelgrima and Perolia certified Pentoza’s achievements, which will be further commemorated with a special symbolic boulder at the stud.

There was no surprise when it came to choosing the Junior Champion Stallion: the title went to Michałów’s Kabsztad, the wielder of the highest score among colts. The reserve was awarded to Boreas, which came with some astonishment, as he was evaluated below Albano (91), Embellon and Agar (90,67 each) in the class competitions. However the fact that a private bred horse made it so far is nothing but joyful news.

The filly championships turned out to be a great success for Janów Podlaski Stud – as much as four fillies made it into the Top Five! The arena welcomed three Enzo daughters, two Gazals, two Galbas, three Eksterns, one Al Maraam and one (privately bred by Chrcynno Stud) Emigrant filly. Both the Champion and Reserve Champion titles went to Janów, the former was awarded, as expected, to Palabra, while the latter to Passionaria, Pianissima’s full sister. The third spot was secured by Perespa, which meant that the top three positions belonged to representatives of the Szamrajówka family. Espinilla from Michałów wedged into the Janów group, placing fourth before Alabama.

When it came to choosing the Best in Show the judges’ votes were divided: two for Kabsztad, two for Palabra. The victory was decided by higher marks for type – and Palabra secured her victory for Janów.

The final accent of the show were the special awards handed out to the highest scored private bred horses. They went to: Melody of Małgorzata and Józef Pietrzak, Elfera of Lech Błaszczyk, Gaja Selene of the Poszepczyński family, Eragon of Jan Głowacki, Panicz of Monika Luft and Boreas of Wojciech Kowalik. It’s just a shame that despite a few improvements in the event and huge hospitality, the organizers displayed a lack of imagination (or will) and the awards were handed out to a completely deserted audience. Perhaps it was justly deemed, that the true conclusion of the event was the choosing of Best

in Show. However the beautiful, sunny weather which the spectators enjoyed during the entire two days more than made up the lacks in the organization. There was no doubt about the high quality of the show – there were only some complaints about harsh judging. Indeed, the judges – Katrina Murray (UK), Cristina Valdes y Colon de Carvajal (Spain), Christine Jamar-Demeersseman (Belgium) and Cristina Wale (Sweden) – did not give away the highest marks too lightly, there were even some very low scores – even a “14” for legs. Apart from Boreas, who competed solely against the private ones, no private bred horse gained first place in his class.
