Arabian Breeders World Cup in Las Vegas (16th -19th April) ended up with a huge success of Polish breeding – the Arabian Breeders Cup went to the Michałów State Stud. Before that two Michałów-bred mares, Emandoria (Gazal Al Shaqab – Emanda/Ecaho) and Embra (Monogramm – Emilda/Pamir), took the Senior Mare Championship and the Reserve Senior Mare Championship.
The Junior Mare Champion title went to the Saudi Layan Al Khalediah (Dakharo – Padrons Amour/Padron), Reserve – to Spanish-bred Abha Palma (Marwan Al Shaqab – Abha Ghazali/El Perfecto). Between the colts the American-bred Stival (Gazal Al Shaqab – Paloma De Jamaal/Soho Carol) was the best beating another American-bred colt El Chall WR (Magnum Chall HVP – Major Love Affair/DS Major Afire). The judges chose the American-bred ML Mostly Padron (Padrons Psyche – HS Mosty/Padron) as Senior Champion Stallion, while Dakharo (Dakar El Jamaal – FOF Kharolina/Padrons Psyche) as Reserve.
The show in Las Vegas is also a great achievement of the handler Greg Gallun, who presented three of the champions: Layan Al Khalediah, Stival and Emandoria.
