New Breeder Nancy Holowesko Scoring Success at USEF/Markel National Young Horse Championships
Monday, August 24, 2009
Holowesko's four-year-old Oldenburg gelding Sabati, by Sandro Hit out of Rosalea, is this year's American-bred award winner for the Four-Year-Old Championships. The gelding placed third in Saturday's Four-Year-Old Championship test with a score of 83.80. His full brother, the Oldenburg gelding Steinway, is competing in the Five-Year-Old Championships and finished up Saturday's Five-Year-Old Championship test in fifth place with a score of 75.00. Both horses are ridden by Ulla Petersen, of Trappe, Maryland.
The winners of the Four-Year-Old Championship were Karen Monks-Reilly and Aesthete, a KWPN gelding, by Trento B out of Unusual, owned by Betsy Spence, of Unionville, Pennsylvania. Their winning score was 86.80. Behind them in second place were the winner's of Friday's Four-Year-Old Warmup class Caroline Roffman and the Hanoverian gelding Bon Chance, by Belissimo M out of Wintersong, with a score of 86.40.
Holowesko said the plan is eventually to sell Sabati, but Steinway will remain with Petersen as the rider. "Steinway is Ulla's favorite horse on the farm, so she gets to keep him and she thinks he has what it takes to make it to Grand Prix," she said. Holowesko has clearly taken to breeding like a fish to water. Bloodlines have become a subject of intense study for her. "I'm fascinated with bloodlines. I study them constantly. I make trips to Europe to study them and I do the breeding on our horses." Clearly, she is on a crusade to make her American-bred horses some of the best in the world and she thinks with Sabati and Steinway "we've got a good start."
