The second sunny, though crisp, day of the Casino Cup Championships in Baden near Vienna brought the Poles another two, after Panicz with his Junior Champion, titles: Senior Reserve Champion Mare and Senior Reserve Champion Stallion.

The 4-6 year old mares class consisted of 11 participants, including the favorite, representing Poland, Primadonna (Padrons Psyche – Pelargonia/Alegro), bred by Stanisław Redestowicz, owned by Tomasz Tarczyński, as well as Janów’s Elwinga (HS Pirandelo – Elekcja/Etogram), representing Austria, as she was purchased at the last Janów Podlaski Sale by Lutetia

Arabians. The class was evaluated by only two judges, because Mrs. Verena Egli, as the breeder of one of the performing mares – L.A. Thea (Psytadel – Tesm/Mashuk), owned by Ruth Wenzel of Switzerland, left the ring. However the fight for first place took place between Primadonna (41 points), but not with the black Elwinga, who received a high score of 40,5 points, but with Espanna Estopa (Espano Estopa – Dezion’s Eiffla/Kruschan Ibn Kantar). The German mare, with an identical score as Primadonna – 41 points – but with one “10” for type and movement, won the class and later also the championships. Numerous Polish spectators, commenting the play-off with vivacity (and also a large part of the public,

who awarded Primadonna with applause for her wonderful trot), inclined to the opinion that the highest score for this feature belonged to the Polish mare, but the judges decided otherwise. And so it was Reinhard Sax who received the champion trophy, while Tomasz Tarczyński – the reserve.

Elwinga placed third in class, before the Egyptian mare Italah Albadeia (Simeon Sharav – Sandos Albadeia/Mohassen Albadeia), bred and owned by Albadeia Stud, and the German MF Helona (JD Chalice – Heloisa/Crusader).

The 4-6 year old stallions class was an interesting face-off to watch. Competing were two Polish horses – Milton (Ecaho – Mina/Monogramm) bred by Małgorzata and Józef Pietrzak, owned by Hanna Landau and Pilin Psyche (Padrons Psyche – Pilina/Eternit), bred by Stanisław Redestowicz and owned by Kielnarowa Stud, two Austrians: Zair boasting a Polish pedigree (Pilot – Zagora/Monogramm) and the host country’s National Champion

Galinka El Sheikh (CH El Brillo – Galinka Rougelais/Pintor), as well as the German Noir Khazar (Madallan Madheen – Khazara/AK Khazar). To the surprise of the public, Galinka did not have such an impressive entrance as during the Wels show in May, where he won the title of Austrian National Champion. He scored 40,67 points – as much as Milton, but the Polish stallion had higher marks for type and movement. And so the handsome grey Galinka had to acknowledge the superiority of the year younger Milton, who won the class. Pilin Psyche with a score of 39,67 was third, Noir Khazar fourth, with Zair closing it off.

Among the six mares which participated in the 7 years old and above mares class were three mares of Polish breeding: the well-known from Janów’s last sale Wróżka (Ganges – Wipera/Fawor), bred by Michałów Stud, representing Lutetia Arabians, her stablemate Elfina (Pamir – Elektroda/Engano), bred by Janów Podlaski and the 21 year old broodmatron Pilina, daughter of the legendary Pilarka/Palas and Eternit, dam of the performing in the previous class Pilin Psyche. The venerable mare from Janów Podlaski (today owned by Tomasz Tarczyński) presented herself with huge dignity, for which she

gathered loud applause. She also received, as the only mare of this show, a “10” for type. However the class was won by the black Wróżka, who trotted so wonderfully before the delighted public, that she was awarded with three “10s” in this category. This gave her a high score of 42 points, while Pilina had 41. Just as much (41) had the Austrian TM Laguna (TM Aikor – Lady Annie/Padron), owned by Ta Merij Arabians, who was classified at third place, while Elfina had to settle for fourth with a score of 40 points. The Top Five was closed off by the also Austrian AAliyah Bey (R Ali Bey – Selimah/Fakir El Kheil), Galinka El Sheik’s stablemate.

The struggles of the 7 years old and above stallions promised to be a repeat from the recent show in Balatonlelle in Hungary, as the same horses were entered. However only DA Caruso (Koronec – Riva/Narew) was able to arrive, as though the owners of other horses foresaw that this time none could stand up to him. The graduate of the Austrian stud Diamond Arabians of Cornelia Kolnberger and owned by Ursula Schlatter (Sunhillstables) without a doubt had his day. He presented himself superbly, receiving two “10s” for type, one for head and neck and one for movement, which gave him a total score of 43 points. And so there were no doubts that he will be chosen Senior Champion Stallion. It seemed obvious that Milton, as the winner of the 4-6 years old stallions class, will place second in the championship. And so – after a short break – happened.

One has to admit that the Casino Cup is becoming more and more of a brand. Not only was the weather good, the public showed up in large numbers, but also the horses – for the most part – were of European quality. Contrary to what we usually witness at Polish shows, the highest marks – 43 points – were garnered by stallions, Senior Champion Stallion DA Caruso and Junior Champion Stallion Panicz. But also the mares proved their quality, including the Polish bred Pilina, Primadonna or the flying above ground Wróżka. The organizer of the show, Peter Urszovics, was very pleased with the numerous entries of Polish

bred horses. “This show has truly become international”, he told polskiearaby.pl. “Perhaps even some Austrian breeders are a bit shocked that so many horses of such quality come here. Today, to even be able to fight for the top spots, you need to have a very good horse.” Asked if he is not surprised by the loss of the Austrian National Champion Stallion in a clash with a Polish horse (at home!) Peter Urszovics said: “Galinka El Sheikh is a wonderful horse. This time he was presented by his owner and not by Frank Spoenle, who so greatly led him to victory in Wels. Perhaps that made him lose some points. But his rival is also a superb horse, so I think that the owner is happy with second place in class.”
