GRADE 2 WINNER BY DA ADIOS, PURE POLISH FILLY EMOSSA BESTS THE FRENCH HORSES
EMOSSA (by Cre Run's DA ADIOS out of Emissa by Ganges) won the category II stakes on the turf for PASB-inscribed 3 year old fillies. The race was sponsored by the Polish Arabian Horse Breeding Society. She won easily by 2 3/4 lengths, covering the 2000 meters in a time of 2.21.3.
Longin Blachut of Poland reports, "She won against the full French- LONG LIVE THE POLES!" Breeder Deb Milhaloff explains, "These progeny of DA ADIOS take a bit to mature. They look so correct and able early on so it is important not to push them too soon. This is great accomplishment for young EMOSSA... and Pure Polish on top of that."
The owners of the filly are Michalow Stud and Emil Zachariev. The filly is trained by E. Zahariev and he too was the jockey.
