For over 40 years, the annual Polish auction has set the standard of the Arabian horse market worldwide. Always the source of equine excellence from beginning to end, the Pride of Poland has featured many of the most accomplished and influential mares and stallions from the Polish breeding program.
Established show stars headlining Pride of Poland have always been a highlight. World Champion KWESTURA not only set the all-time record high-selling price, but also went on to win another World Champion title for her elated new owner Ajman Stud (United Arab Emirates). Best in Show Champion ETNOLOGIA won championships across Europe in 2013 for proud new owner Halsdon Arabians (United Kingdom), including All Nations Cup Silver Champion in an all-Polish mare championship line-up.
Proven broodmares, who have perpetually been the foundation of success for the Polish breeding program, are a source of good fortune generously shared each August with the world’s established and aspiring breeders. Meritorious matrons who have recently gone on to find breeding success for their delighted new owners include aristocrat dam PILAR for Al Shaqab Stud (Qatar), ANDALUZJA and PANIKA for Athbah Stud (Kingdom of Saudi Arabia), as well as FALLADA and WIAŹMA for Knocke Arabians (Belgium).
The discovery of hidden gems from amongst the Pride of Poland collection has dramatically shaped the destiny of many programs worldwide. Not only is this true in the main auction, but especially so in the former Silent, Selection, and now Summer Sale. Former sagacious purchases include international champion and superlative performance sire KORDELAS for Toskhara Arabians (USA), Brazilian National Champion and influential sire DĘBOWIEC for Haras Meia Lua (Brazil), and versatile show horse supreme GEORGETOWN for Azrek Arabians (South Africa).
Expect the 2014 collection to exceed the exacting standards that have come to define the Pride of Poland. From established broodmares to potential superstars in the making, there is most definitely a horse for everyone: the horse that could not only chart a new course of success and achievement, but create the future.
