PRESIDENT OF THE BOARD OF TOTALIZATOR SPORTOWY
CHAIRMAN OF THE HONORARY COMMITTEE

Dear Sir or Madam,

For many years the Służewiec Racecourse has been the venue hosting the most important and interesting national and international equestrian events. Warsaw attracts the best riders from all over the world. Obviously, the main reason for that are the races held here, but there is another exceptional event waiting for us this July – the Longines EEF Series Nations Cup Final, which takes place during the Warsaw Jumping CSIO4* competition. This sports festival is organized by Totalizator Sportowy. It is worth noting that the prize pool is over PLN 1,900,000. Such an amount guarantees that the best world-class riders will be interested in the event, which, in turn, promises a very interesting competition!

To conclude, I would like to emphasize that the fact that the Longines EEF Series Nations Cup Final is held in Poland should be a source of pride and joy for all horse sports enthusiasts in our country. May there be as many such events as possible!

I hope you can all experience #GreatMoments during the WARSAW JUMPING CSIO4* LONGINES EEF Series!

A few splendidly emotional days ahead of us! I am so glad to know that Warsaw is soon to become the arena for the Nations Cup rivalry within the EEF Longines Show Jumping Series. It has been genuinely great news to every fan of the sport.

In the Cup, the Grand Prix, and numerous other competitions, we will be offered a rare opportunity of watching top European riders – along with our national team as the host. Let me believe that for each of them the competition at Służewiec becomes a dream-come-true event.

Warsaw Jumping certainly makes an extraordinary episode. What makes us additionally satisfied is the involvement of state companies – Totalizator Sportowy being the Organiser, along with PKN Orlen, PKO Bank Polski and KGHM to have been listed as partners and sponsors. According to reliable expert estimation, Polish state companies subsidise the development of national sport with over 200 million PLN, which makes me feel – as the Minister of State Assets – particularly proud.

Let me wish all the best to each and every participant of this prestigious competition. And many unforgettable moments for the spectators!

MAŁGORZATA GOŚNIOWSKA-KOLA
ACTING GENERAL DIRECTOR OF THE NATIONAL CENTER FOR AGRICULTURAL SUPPORT

Ladies and gentlemen,

It is with great pleasure that I accepted the invitation to participate in the Honorary Committee of the Warsaw Jumping CSIO 4 * competition, which will take place at the Służewiec Horse Race Track in Warsaw.

I represent an institution supervising 38 plant and animal breeding companies of particular importance for the national economy. Among them, there are 20 companies that breed 9 of the most important horse breeds in Polish breeding.
KOWR companies play a leading role in creating and disseminating biological progress in Polish agriculture, which is currently considered the most important factor influencing the increase in agricultural efficiency from the point of view of increasing the quantity as well as the quality of agricultural products. KOWR companies have valuable genetic material of plants and farm animals at their disposal. It is the basis for the achieved biological progress, which is available for domestic agriculture in the form of new plant varieties and subsequent generations of farm animals.

The event in Służewiec undoubtedly unites riders, horse lovers and the audience.
The attractiveness of the sports program of the competition will be guaranteed by seven interesting international competitions, and the highlight will be the Longines EEF Series final – the Final of the European Nations Cup. I am convinced that it will bring together the best riders from Europe and ensure sports competition for victory. One of the elements of Warsaw Jumping CSIO 4 * will be the equestrian equipment fair, which will be a great attraction for horse and equestrian enthusiasts.

I wish all riders success in sports, and the audience a lot of emotions during the equestrian competitions and great fun.
