An A-listed race for 4 year old and older horses over 1,600 m with a purse of 59,500 PLN (around 15 thousand euro) for the Al Khalediah Poland Cup will be held at the Warsaw Służewiec track on Sunday, August 20th.

Let’s recall that last year the race was held during the Arabian Racing Day (August 21st). This time the weather was not favorable and the horses raced in a slight drizzle. Victorious was the French 4-year-old Cakouet de Bozouls (Dahess – Udjidor de Bozouls/Dormane), bred by Saint Faust, owned by Krzysztof Goździalski (Falborek Arabians), who purchased the horse at the Arqana auction in Saint-Cloud in October of 2014. The horse was trained by Maciej Jodłowski and was ridden by Szczepan Mazur. Before he was imported to Poland, Cakouet de Bozouls raced eight times in France. He won upon his debut and it was the first victory for a Polish-owned horse since 50 years at a French track. He was also second twice and third twice, winning a total of 31,450 euro. During the Al Khalediah Poland Cup Cakouet de Bozouls improved the track record of Vly Kossack from 2013 by 1.9 seconds with a result of 1’46,6″.

The fight for second spot took place between the Swedish Gazello (Nougatin – Gordaia/Damask), bred by J. Eng and owned by C. Olsen Agri ltd., trained by Bogdan Strójwąs, and Res. Derby Winner 2015 Mufid (Akbars – Mukata Fata/KA Czubuthan), bred and owned by Janusz Ryżkowski and trained by Krzysztof Ziemiański. Gazello won by half a length.
