Please visit the Brazilian website, especially if you have a high speed connection. This year, they have video of the show so it’s like being there! All of the show results can be found on http://abccmm.org.br under XXIII National. There are the many classes for each age level, male, female. There are separate classes for gait and conformation. A champion is named at each level for the combined gait and conformation. In other words, you can have a champion in gait of yearling colts and a champion in conformation of yearling colts. Then they combine the results and obtain the overall yearling champion of the race. They do this for many age groups before all of the champions get judged for “champion of champions” – the champion of the race – for that year. Similar to best in show at Westminster.
Because of the large number of classes, we are only reporting on the Champions of the Race and the Marcha Picada class. The Marcha Picada class was new this year, so it deserves special attention. We thank the Guerra family for their efforts with the ABCCMM to showcase the picada gait at the National Show.
Champion of Champions – Junior Mare (under 3)
Champion: GENEBRA DO CARDEAL (HORIZONTAL DA OGAR x IMPERATRIZ DO GUEGA)
Reserve Champion: ÚNICA KAFÉ (PALHAÇO DE ITUVERAVA x GAROTA KAFE)
Horizontal da Ogar is the son of Almanaque da Ogar. Almanaque is also several generations back in Seamus da Boa Fe, Summerwind. Palhaco also is a descendent of Almanaque da Ogar. Garota Kafe seems to be “open book”, no information on lineage available.

Champion: ORIGINAL DO PASSO FINO (SEIKO L.J. x DESTAQUE HONRA.)
Reserve Champion: EXTRATO DO MINATTO (RUBI L.J. x QUATIARA L.J.)
L.J is a line that seems to be producing many winners in Brazil today. While there are no direct descendents of Rubi L.J.or Seiko L.J. in the U.S. today, there are descendents of Carvao L.J. Carvao L.J. is in the background of many L.J and J.B. horses. The two related animals in the U.S. are a spotted gelding Steio do Berma, and a bay stallion Cabaclo da Piedade. (Summerwind)
Champion of Champions – Adult Stallion

Cabacu also has Paulista de Santa Lucia as a grandsire. He is found in the pedigrees of Jardineira da Boa Fe (Marchwind) and Seamus da Boa Fe (Summerwind). Big names in Lagloria Jandaia are Malibu da Santa Terezinha and Abaiba Gim. Malibu is the leading stallion siring show winners in Brazil. He is the grandsire of Seamus da Boa Fe (Summerwind).

Pupila de Itajoana (Lazy T), Cafundo Monalisa (Premier), La Paz Jivago (Summerwind), Seamus da Boa Fe (Summerwind) and Grahla M.U.G. (Rancho Linda)
Both Cosmica parents have an Abaiba/Providencia influence like Abaiba Gim. We have many representatives of Abaiba Gim blood in the U.S, including Jallaio da Boa Fe (Premier), Ninja da Sao Joaquim (Cielos), Jardineira da Boa Fe (Marchwind) and Jaina do Passo Fino (Cielos).
Champion Picada – Younger Stallion
Champion: NACIONAL DA CALCIOLÂNDIA (HAITY CAXAMBUENSE x GLOBAL DA CALCIOLÂNDIA)

Haity Caxambuese is also the sire of Rubaia da Palmeira, a bay stallion owned by MM Horse Farms. He is very smooth! And he is available for stud or purchase.
Many may recognize the farm Calciolandia as the foundation stock, Verbena, Folha and Alecrim, all of MM Horse Farms originally, were Calciolandia horses. Gas Cardeal was the sire of Global da Calciolandia and he was also the sire of Verbena. Batuque de Miami, (Rancho Linda), Folha de Calciolandia, (Tesouro), American Boy de Miami (Prata) (Marchwind), and Chanel de Miami, (Summerwind) were Verbena foals.
N.L.J is a new farm name to us, but Esquivel N.L.J. is a son of the famous Moleque Tabatinga. Moleque Tabatinga was the sire of Dominio da Joatinga (Brauna Libertas, Lazy T, Brisa Libertas, Summerwind) and Festin Passo Fino (Jaina do Passo Fino, Cielos).
