A well bred Białka beauty in the prime of her life, MELONIA descends from a legendary heritage of athletic accomplishment and esteemed Arabian type. Only thrice out of the money in 20 starts over two seasons, MELONIA is the daughter of Polish Racehorse of the Year BATYSKAF – winner of the Polish Derby & Criterium, who later sold for the record sum of $450k to the Turkish Jockey Club. Proving that beauty and brawn can indeed manifest themselves in one complete package, BATYSKAF was also named Polish National Champion Stallion/Best in Show, besting some of the best stallions of his peer group. His talent on the turf has been inherited by Produce & Criterium winner FIOŁEK, Produce, Figaro, Kurozwęki, Druid & Comet Stakes winner MAJOR, and Sasanka Stakes winner RIAD BATYSKAFA, whereas his show ring prowess is best exemplified in Rogoredo (Italy) Junior Champion FORDA & Warsaw Summer Show Reserve Senior Champion PLAGIAT. Considerable quality and elegance are the gifts of MELONIA’s lovely dam META, a daughter of Polish National & European Reserve Champion PARTNER. Tail female, MELONIA descends through the legendary beauty MASKOTA from the dam family of Sahara, one of the three original “Pearls of the Desert” imported to Poland in 1851 by Count Dzieduszycki, who collectively now form the foundation for all modern Polish breeding.
