Ganges – brave and beautiful
Today, April 6th, an extraordinary horse celebrates his 29th birthday, the last living son of MONOGRAMM in Poland – GANGES.
A continuer of the Kuhailan Haifi d.b. sire line, he combines the best traits of the Polish Arabian with his exemplary charisma and refined looks.
Ganges’ dam, Garonna by Fanatyk, is a fantastic example of an Arabian race horse. During her two years at the track she raced 18 times and won four times, including the Oaks Stakes in 1989.
The show and racing record of Ganges is surely known by all enthusiasts of Michałów horses. This stallion marked his presence on the show arenas in Poland (1995, 1996 – Polish National Junior Reserve Champion, 2001 – Polish National Senior Champion Stallion), Europe (2000 – International Senior Show Champion, Blommeröd, 2001 – All Nations Cup Senior Reserve Champion Stallion, Aachen) and the USA (2002 – Champion Stallion, Columbus, OH, 2003 – US National Reserve Champion, Albuquerque, NM).
Ganges was successful at the racetrack, winning three times, including the Koheilan I St.
He passed his predispositions onto his get, out of which the best proved to be the colt Don Carlos (out of Decyzja by Pamir), who won the Derby in 2005 in 3’32,00”.
The offsping of Ganges are not just race horses, but also endurance and sports-oriented (Wandea – a winner in show jumping and pleasure classes).
At his maternal stud Ganges sired wonderful mares, such as Diaspora, Drzewica, Emissa, Wieża Wiatrów, Wieża Elfów, Wróżka, Złota Księga, Doris Day, Cheroja, Wieża Orientu, Foggara.
Whereas the use of Ganges at Janów Podlaski Stud gave such mares as Bernadetta, Pia out of Pianissima, Eulerta, Perla and Alhasa.
No wonder that breeders refer to Ganges’ daughters as true pearls!
Currently Ganges is enjoying his well deserved retirement and is leading a peaceful equine life.
Happy birthday, Ganges!
