During the last weekend, in the B show championship in Ströhen organized traditionally on the premises of the stud and zoological gardens of the Ismer family, only a couple of horses from Poland were presented. One of the comers from our country, the Israeli-bred AA Assal by Laheeb (out of Asia/MH Weston), leased by Wojciech Kowalik, received as much as 93,3 points from the judges, after which he reached for the highest honor and became Senior Champion Stallion, besting a grandson of Ali Jamaal and Sanadik El Shaklan – the stallion Om El Bahreyn (CG Balih El Jamaal – Om El Benedict). The second arrival from Poland, Etnodrons Psyche (Padrons Psyche – Etnografia/Aloes), Polish bred (by Stanisław Redestowicz) and owned (by Paweł Redestowicz), was also awarded with a high score (90,6) and placed second in his class, behind the soon-to-be champion.
Presented in the yearling fillies class was Arista (Psytadel – Afrodyta by Ararat), owned by Mr. and Mrs. Rybczyński, as well as Al Kahima (Gaspar – Alfa by Eukaliptus), owned by Grzegorz Paw. Both fillies scored 88,33 points. The class was won by the strongly linebred to Magnum Psyche filly Anna Nicole NWA by WH Justice out of a Magnum Psyche daughter.
A much better result than that of the yearling fillies was delivered by the 2 year old Espiria (Psytadel – Ekspiacja/Emigrant), owned by Lech Błaszczyk. The filly with a score of 91,3 points took second place in class (behind Om El Enigma by Al Lahab) and on Sunday participated in the championships. Last year, at the same event, she was fourth in class.
Also shown in Ströhen was Pieta (Gazal Al Shaqab – Pilar/Fawor), sold last year at the Janów Sale to Mrs. Shirley Watts for the record price of 300 thousand euro. She placed second in her class, achieving a very high score of 93 points. However she was beaten by Arrowen-Bint-Eternity by Eternity Ibn Navarrone-D with a score of 93,6, that was chosen Senior Champion Mare later on.
