The clients of the 33rd Sale, which took place on August 11th, 2002, were served a big surprise. At the last moment a new offer was announced, not mentioned in the catalogue. Offered as Lot “0” was… a yearling! It was the freshly crowned Junior Spring Show Champion and Best in Show from Białka, the dark bay Wieża Wiatrów 2001 (Ganges – Wiaźma/Arbil), bred by Michałów. After a fierce bidding her price reached 220 thousand euro and the buyer came from Saudi Arabia. Among the mares gracing the catalogue an impressive price was also given for the beautifully coloured brown mare Elfina 1994 (Pamir – Elektroda/Engano), bred by Janów Podlaski Stud, who joined the collection of Mrs. Watts for 120 thousand euro. Out of the four stallions offered at the main sale only one reached his reserve price: Ekwipunek, bay 1995 (Eukaliptus – Equitana/Aloes), bred by Janów Podlaski Stud, sold to the US. In total 30 mares and 1 stallion were sold from the Pride of Poland Sale for 1.126 million dollars.

It was the last auction when transactions were made in US dollars, because although Poland fully joined the European Union only in 2004, the catalogue prices in 2003 were already given in euro. Starting from 2002 the job of auctioneer was handed over to Todd Watt from the well-known Tattersalls auction house, supported by Scott Benjamin.
