HORSE RACING

 

The Horse Stud has been integrally linked to the breeding of English Thoroughbred horses for years, where horse racing is the natural place of selection.

 

After World War II, the stud was and still continues to be very successful in racing as well as breeding. The proof of this is numerous victories at home and abroad. Horses trained in Widzow won the following classics: 8 times Derby Award, 7 - Ruler Award, Oaks and St. Leger, 6 - Spring Prize, 10 - Great Warsaw Award, 9- Prime Minister's Award, over 150 other non-staged list prizes and dozens of races abroad. Six times the horses were awarded the title of Horse of the Year: Dixieland (1980), Sonora (1982), Szarlatan (1996), Dżajajka (2000), San Luis (2005) and San Moritz (2007). After the war, there were twelve triple crowed horses, from which three of them are still within the Widzow stable: Dipol, Dżajajka and San Moritz.

 

The Dipol stallion (chestnut, 1969, Antiquarian - Dignitary), was a phenomenal horse, for three years number one in the country, won all 6 races that he participated in.

Magnificant stallion San Luis (g., 1999, Dixieland - Santa Monika), was the only one in the history of the Great Warsaw Prize, that took part in it five times and won twice, and took second place twice. Then he competed in races with obstacles and in the 2009 season he won 3 times, and in 2010 once. He was qualified to breed full-blooded and half-blood horses and in 2011 he was at the Janów Podlaski Stud. Unfortunately, the stallion fell down in the spring of 2012, during his stay at the Racot Horse Stud.

 

Black San Moritz (black, 2004, Roulette - Santa Monika), is the half-brother of the prominent San Luis who was running at the age of 2-6 years on distances of 1000-3000 meter in flat races and with obstacles. During the 5 seasons, he started 19 times (10-2-2-0). As a three-year-old, he was unmatched in Służewiec - undefeated in the country, Triple Crowned, winner of the title "Horse of the Year 2007". He set a record for the Służewiec track at a distance of 1000 meter (0'8,48,4).

 

Nevertheless, the greatest breeding achievement of Widzów in the post-war period was the breeding of the best post-war sires, stallion Dixieland (g., 1997, Conor Pas - Nastojna), who was an incredible racehorse. He gave three derbies (Bachus, Sollozzo, Limak), he was the Horse of the Year (1980) and his three offspring (Limak, Zagara, San Luis) were also considered the Horse of the Year.

In every stud he hid, he gave winners in non-group races. Stallions San Luis and Masini, described below, are his last sons. Occasionally used in half-bred horse breeding, Dixieland gave a great mare Banderola (kennel SK Skrzydlów), who won the Half-Derby Derby in Wrocław, and then after several years of training and competitions at WKKW Piotr Piasecki won the Polish WKKW Championship there. Bart was also distinguished in this competition, and in recent years Stawros ridden by Paweł Warszawski.

In 2007 he became the Horse of the Year in the Czech Republic and for 5 years the best sprinter in this country.
