A broodmare in the prime of her life, APOLONIA is a daughter of the late EKSTERN, who became a legend already during his lifetime. Affectionately dubbed "the King of the Ring", EKSTERN remains an undefeated show champion with nine prestigious titles to his name, among them Polish National Junior & Senior Champion Stallion, 2000 European Triple Crown winner as All Nations Cup, European & World Senior Champion Stallion, Mercedes Diamond Cup Champion and a WAHO Trophy honoree for an outstanding individual of Arabian breeding. But more importantly EKSTERN is a producer of champions and even more - of champion producing broodmares. As a daughter of EKSTERN, APOLONIA belongs to the elite group of his female get such as EKLIPTYKA (dam of World Platinum Champion Stallion EQUATOR, Polish National Bronze Champion Mare EL BELLISSIMA), WIEŻA MARZEŃ (dam of World, US National and Polish National Champion Mare WIEŻA MOCY), MESALINA (dam of World and Polish National Champion Stallion MORION), PUSTYNNA MALWA (dam of World and Polish National Champion Mare PUSTYNIA KAHILA), ERIGONE (dam of European Champion Mare EFORA KL) and CALATEA (dam of All-Polish Championships male gold medallists CALATORIO and CALATEON).

Tail-female APOLONIA is a direct descendant of the important OFIRKA through her daughter ADIS ABEBA, who gave root to the small “A” line in Michałów. Although scarce in numbers, the family is high in quality. The first show accolade awarded to its member was the title of Polish National Reserve Champion, earned by ADIS ABEBA’s granddaughter ARTEMIDA. Abounding in femininity, class and length of neck, ARTEMIDA produced UK Harrogate Reserve Champion ARETA and the good broodmare ARTERIA, a consistent source of beauty and athleticism. ARTERIA’s best offspring include multi stakes winner ARLET, chief sire at the Royal Moroccan Stables and her successor in the breeding barn - the exceptionally producing ARMENIA. Dam of 14 foals, ARMENIA’s progeny roster includes Falborek Reserve Champion (of Private Breeding) ARGUS, Lesieniec St. winner ARUMBA, Junior Spring Show class Top Three finalists ARLEKIN, ARPAD & ARAD and the dangerously charming ANAKONDA, dam of ARGOLIDA (second in class at the Junior Spring Show as a two year old).

The mare can be picked up upon the weaning of the foal - date to be agreed with the Seller. 2023 foal born on 03.05.2023
