Janów-bred Pogrom (QR Marc – Pętla/Visbaden), who is standing now at Midwest Training Centre (USA), won today (Sunday) in Scottsdale the title of (unanimous) Champion Stallion and Supreme Champion – which means that he has been chosen the best Arabian horse of the show.
„What a great day at Scottsdale for Poland and Janów Podlaski! When the judges came to Pogrom in the championship line up, hundreds of little Polish flags sprung up from the fans and were waving in the breeze”, told us Jeffrey Wintersteen of the „Arabian Horse World”. „He was very popular with those crowding the stands in Wendell arena. I thought Pogrom showed much
better than in his 4 year old class, my only regret is that he was not allowed to really demonstrate his movement on the end of the lead. But in the end, he is a complete horse, and in my opinion, rewarded for it. He has matured very well, charismatic, well-built, masculine and just beautiful. I had the pleasure to congratulate Director Trela after the class. To our recollection, it was the first Polish stallion to be named Champion Stallion at Scottsdale since El Paso, also from Janów Podlaski”.
Three days ago (Febrary 21st) Pogrom won his class of Scottsdale Arabian Classic for 4 year old stallions, also unanimously. „There were 4 other entrants which he bested rather easily”, reported Jeffrey Wintersteen that day. „He was very well turned out, excellent coat and there
was quite a large crowd on hand to see him. There was a very loud cheer as he entered the arena for the first time. He moved very well for the small showing area and being held on a tight lead by handler David Boggs. His stand up was okay, he seemed quite anxious. Unfortunately, there was a lot of rain and the class could not be held in the usual Wendell arena because of the mud. Inside, it was in one of the tented warmup arenas, so not the best viewing for fans. Director Marek Trela was on hand for the victory celebration”.
