Michałów State Stud has informed that today, after a long illness, the mare EL DORADA has passed away at the age of 18. The best daughter of Polish National Champion and World Champion Mare Emigrantka and World Champion Stallion Sanadik El Shaklan remains one the most famous and most decorated mares of Michałów Stud. At the age of two she claimed the titles of Junior Spring Show Champion Mare, Blommeröd International Junior Champion Mare, Polish National Junior Champion Mare and European Junior Champion Mare. As a senior she enlarged this collection with such accolades as Polish National Senior Champion Mare, All Nations Cup Senior Champion Mare, European Senior Champion Mare and World Senior Reserve Champion Mare. El Dorada also conquered America as Scottsdale Senior Reserve Champion Mare and US National Senior Champion Mare. As a 14 year old she again took the podium at all three of the European Triple Crown shows, gaining the silver medals of the All Nations Cup and European Championships, as well as the bronze at the World Championships. A year later the judges awarded her with the Silver Senior Champion Mare title at the prestigious Prince Sultan bin Abdulaziz International Arabian Horse Festival in Saudi Arabia. In 2015 during the Menton show two of El Dorada's sons, EL PALACIO VO (US) and WAJEEH ATHBAH (IT) received the Best Head awards in their classes, while El Dorada herself was awarded with the Best Dam of the Show title.
Most notable among El Dorada's produce is EL PALACIO VO (US) by Al Lahab. This multi champion from the Middle East and World Junior Bronze Champion Stallion is currently a valued sire, the father of this year's World Junior Bronze Champion Mare BINT HAZY AL KHALEDIAH (SA).
