Filipowski's Princess Rose Wins Second Kokugyo Prize!


Filipowski's Princess Rose Wins Second Kokugyo Prize!
January 18, 2007

Andrew "Flip" Filipowski's "Princess Rose" Kohaku, daughter of "Rose Queen" made history last year when she became the first American owned koi to win the 80bu Female Kokugyo Prize at the 37th All Japan Show.

After spending another season boarding at Sakai Fish Farms in Hiroshima, she has grown impressively in length but even more so in girth.

Impressed by her development, Flip made the decision to enter her in this year's Show where her current size of 83cm put her into the 85bu size division, one of the most fiercely competitive size divisions in the All Japan Show.

This morning at 11:37am Japan time, Princess Rose again made All Japan Koi Show history by becoming the first ever American owned koi to win consecutive All Japan Kokugyo Prizes when she was awarded 85bu female Kokugyo Prize at the 38th All Japan Koi Show!

Kokugyo means "National Fish" and koi that earn this stature are considered to be National Treasures in Japan.
Bred by Sakai of Hiroshima, this incredible female is the daughter of Rose Queen of the famed Rose bloodline.

Pan Intercorp proudly congratulates Flip on this unprecedented achievement and is grateful to have been given the opportunity to be a part of this historical event.
