West Coast Cup & Belgian National Championship Show August 1 & 2, 2015 Ten Bogaerdelaan, Koksijde, Belgium by Jeff Wallace with Theresa Cardamone
ach event held during the long show season is stamped with its own special flavor. The West Coast Cup in Belgium is the delicious effort of Koenraad Detailleur and his amazing family. Every one of them was fully involved in some way in a most ambitious and ongoing family undertaking. They take the utmost pride in making sure that every attendee has an amazing experience. The cavalcade of nations represented by the horses chosen as champions was a potent illustration of the globalization of the Arabian industry. They were bred or owned by farms located in Belgium, Dubai, Germany, Great Britain, the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Switzerland, the United States, and more! Hanaya Stud, in an impressive showing, swept the straight Egyptian junior championships with Hanaya Farfoura and Hanaya Karam, both sired by Nayla Hayekâ€™s impressive young stallion Kenz Al Baydaa. Hayekâ€™s faith in him and his abilities to cross favorably with the Hanaya mares is being justly rewarded. Not to be outdone, Wasfeyya El Gabry added to the Hanaya harvest by reaping first place honors in a very tough straight

Egyptian senior mare class. She is a gorgeous gem of a mare, by the elegant Jamil Al Rayyan and out of the Salaa El Dine daughter, DHS Waseemah. Gold Junior Champion Colt Cadance PA was a sensation in elite shows rings of America the last few years, bringing home the 2013 Arabian National Breeder Finals Junior Champion Colt and the 2014 United States National Champion Two-Year Old Colt titles and he shows no sign of slowing down based on this performance. Bred by Pegasus Arabians, in the U.S., with double-Versace close up in his pedigree, Cadance PA is a real scene-stealer in the arena for his owner Al Saqran Stud, Kuwait. The Gold Junior Champion Filly was a really beautiful direct daughter of El Palacio VO, the effervescent Bint Hazy Al Khalediah. El Palacio VO is by the prolific sire of champions Al Lahab, a Laheeb son bred in Israel by Ariela Arabians and is out of the incredible El Dorada, the Polish sensation who earned Polish, European, All Nations Cup and U. S. National Champion honors among many others. Hazy is bred and owned by Al Khalediah Stables in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
West Coast Cup
The West Coast Show senior male and female championships went to Aja Justafire and D Reem, respectively. Aja Justafire was bred in Great Britain by Mr. & Mrs. Hickford, and is owned by the Asayel Stud of Kuwait. With two doses of Padrons Psyche and *El Shaklan in his pedigree, he is loaded with Arabian type. Gold Senior Champion Mare D Reem also boasts lots of type on both sides of her pedigree, with double-*Padron through her sire Ajman Moniscione and *Morafic through her dam, Kastilia M.A.F. As a result, she has a very extreme head that adds to her reputation as a crowd favorite. Volume 46, No. 3 | Halter 115

he Belgian National Championship Show on Saturday, was a testament to a very special mare that had no fewer than four full siblings finish with championships! If your name was Madonna or Marc, you had nothing to worry about in Belgium. FS Magnum’s Madonna is a black daughter of Magnum Psyche out of a Bey Shah daughter who has been a goldmine for owner/breeders Mr. & Mrs. Gheysens of Knocke Arabians. At this show alone, her QR Marc daughters Magnola KA and Mimosa KA won the Belgian National Silver and Bronze Championships for Junior Fillies, while their full brother Marius Madonna KA brought home the Bronze Championship for Junior Colts. The fourth full sibling, the gleaming and grand Magnums Tulip was the Belgian National Silver Champion Mare. By the way, Knocke Arabians swept the Junior Filly Championship, winning it with another QR Marc daughter, Nadira KA who is out of CN Neville. Wins for Knocke Arabians didn’t stop there, with stallions Newton KA and Emerson KA earning the Gold and Silver National Championships. Gold Champion Senior Stallion Newton KA is a full brother to Gold Champion Junior Filly Nadira KA. Kudos to Knocke Arabians on an incredible achievement!

and owned by M/M James Swaenepoel, he is a correct and elegant son of WA Justice out of Euphoria who is also homebred by the Swaenepoel’s and was the 2012 Belgian National Senior Champion Mare. Azerbeidjan is a full brother in blood to World Silver Champion Mare FM Gloriaa, as they are out of full sisters and daughters of Psytadel. A tribute to his breeder, Azerbeidjan shows all the signs of being a major presence in the breed for many years to come. The silver champion in the class was Shagran Athbah, bred and owned by Athbah Stud and a son of one of Europe’s most popular emerging sires, EKS Alihandro. The Belgian National Champion Mare is the incredible beauty, Nesj El Markhisa. Handled to perfection by Tom Oben, she is the essence of balanced style and substance. Markhisa represents the perfect blend of Kuhailan and Saklawi I bloodlines, performance and beauty. Her sire, Marwan Al Shaqab was the perfect cross for her dam, Nesj El Khisaya, herself a daughter of Khidar. Her superior quality and fine show attitude make it a certainty that she will be earning more accolades in the future. By the time the final class was held, the hard work of the Detailleur family and everyone who contributed, resulted in a parade of satisfied horsemen, heading for home with nothing but the fondest of memories. Until next year!
