A Long List Of Titles

What does Jakarta has to do with Wels? Jakarta, Indonesia's capital city, is one of the world' greatest megalopolises and a dynamic city of daunting extremes. The Austrian city Wels is a pleasure to stroll through, with a clutch of Renaissance and baroque townhouses hiding inner courtyards and walled gardens. At first glance, there the cities haven't something to do with one another. However, the Austrian National & International Arabian Show proved the opposite, when DA Jakarta, a mare bred and ownedby Cornelia Kolnberger, was one of the most successful horses.

The appearance of the 2012 born mare DA Jakarta resulted in a long list of titles. On national level, DA Jakarta (Lawrence El Gazal x FA Jussdiva) accomplished Gold Champion Senior Mare, Best Mover, and Best Austrian Bred Mare. In addition, on international level, DA Jakarta earned Silver Champion Senior Mare and was named Best in Show with the high score of the whole show (93,00 points). It was an amazing weekend for her breeder and owner Cornelia Kolnberger, who also received National Gold Champion Junior Filly with DA Ariyana, by EKS Alihandro, and National Silver Champion Junior Filly with DA Little Princess, by Lawrence El Gazal. Bronze Champion Junior Filly was given to LR Sicilia, by Dominic M, bred by Las Rosas and owned by Mario Matt Arabians.

The Gold Champion Junior Colt, Shayan De Magnifique (Magic Magnifique x Shanwa by Pryam), bred and owned by NB Arabians, was also named Best Austrian Bred Stallion. Silver was given to Al Perfecto, by RFI Farid, with TM Lamborghini, by Ascot DD, winning Bronze.

Silver Champion Senior Mare, bested only by aforementioned DA Jakarta, was Questurat Al Fawaz, Al Raheeb AA. Al Hambra Arabians celebrated the Bronze Champion Senior Mare with Al Imeila, a daughter of Mahadin who died recently.

Hanaya Arabians, located in Switzerland and a member of the Austrian studbook VVÖ, took home Unanimous Gold Champion Senior Stallion with Straight Egyptian bred Safeer By Sibilla (MG Magic Ghassan x Magic Sibilla), bred by Marinella Abagnale. Silver Champion was given to the Mahadin son Al Fakhir with TM Lancelot, by Eden C, winning Bronze.

There was only one unanimous decision in the international B-Show: Dubai Arabian Horse Stud's D Shallal (FA El Rasheem x D Shahla) achieved Gold Champion Junior Colt. The two-years old colt is no newcomer to the show ring. D Shallal was named 2017 Dubai Gold Champion Yearling Colt and won Silver at the international show in Sharjah earlier this year. Bronze was given to Elshaan, by Marshan, with AJ Radman, by AJ Mardan, winning Silver which was not the only medallist bred and owned by Ajman Stud.

In the Yearling Colt championship, Ajman Stud earned Gold and Bronze with AJ Eazm (AJ Mardan x Ysadora) and Aja El Dorado, by AJ Mardan respectively, while Dubai Arabian Horse Stud's D Bareq, by FA El Rasheem, won Silver.

In the Yearling Filly championship Dubai Arabian Horse Stud was one step ahead with the FA El Rasheem daughter D Nawasi (x D Nawal) accomplishing Gold. This time, Ajman Stud received Silver with another AJ Mardan filly: Aja Deia. Mario Matt's WH Justice filly M.M. Sabea accomplished Bronze.

Hanaya Arabians celebrated another Gold with Nemesis Regalis (SA Faez Simbad x Nashira By Chawy NA), bred by Pietro RE, in the Junior Filly championship. The Kahil Al Shaqab daughter Rahaf Al Zobara won Silver with Priscilla OS, by Poseidon OS, as Bronze Champion Junior Filly.

The AJ Dinar daughter AJ Dinara, out of HS Dancing Queen, received Gold honours in the Senior Mare championship. The eight-years-old is bred by Ajman Stud and proudly owned by Al Saqran Stud. Silver and Bronze were given to DA Jakarta and bold moving Ekstern daughter Psyche Kreuza respectively. Psyche Kreuza was also Best Mover with four times 20 for movement.

Particularly mentioned Safeer By Sibilla took Silver Champion Senior Stallion, bested only by Mountassar Al Zobair, a Khidar son out of Falha Al Shaqab, bred by Al Zobair Stud and proudly owned by Naseem Stud. Ajman Stud ended the show with another Bronze achieved by Antaris OS, by RFI Farid.
