Born in 2019 at Michałów Stud, the bay FORGA is the daughter of the marvellous MORION and FORGISSIMA by VITORIO TO. The prodigious pedigree of this three-year-old mare is a mixture of beautiful show champions as well as great racing horses. FORGA’s sire, the above-mentioned MORION, has won many trophies at national and international shows including: All Nations Cup Silver Champion Yearling Colt, Silver World Champion Yearling Colt, Gold World Champion Junior Colt and Polish National Gold Champion Senior Stallion. What is more, MORION consistently passes his type and charisma onto his progeny who take the national and international show rings by storm. FORGISSIMA, a beautiful bay Michałów broodmare, is also the dam of the grey FLORISSIMA (by SAHM EL ARAB), 2019 Polish National Gold Champion Yearling Filly. It is important to remember that tail female FORGA represents the Ukrainka dam line, known for its racing capabilities.

FORGA started her show career at the age of two when she became Bronze Champion Junior Filly at the 2021 Białka Junior Spring Show. In the same year, at the Polish National Show in Janów Podlaski, she won the two-year-old fillies’ class and qualified for the Junior Fillies Championship, where she placed fifth. However, FORGA’s beauty is not her only asset. She is also a harmoniously built mare with correct conformation, which encouraged her breeders to send her to “Partynice”, the racetrack in Wrocław, to be trained by Petro Nakoniechnyi.

On 4th June, during the international exterior race for 3-year-old Arabian horses of II group, FORGA surprised everyone. After the race started, she stayed far behind the other contenders for a long time. However, on the final straight, she outrode the other horses and she won the race with her jockey Natalia Hendzel. Such a wonderful win pleases us even more as it was FORGA’s debut on the racetrack.

We are pleased with FORGA’s achievements at “Partynice” in Wroclaw and we look forward to seeing more of her wins both at the racetrack and in the show ring. FORGA is living proof that, in accordance with the principles of the Polish breeding, an Arabian horse combines the unique beauty with racing abilities.
