Irrefutably the best of the Polish mares, judged by the quality of her progeny, was Mammona. One of the last daughters of Ofir, Mammona has been honored by being called the foundress of her own family group. Her name in Polish means "treasure" and this magnificent mare, foaled in 1939 (out of Krucica), also produced treasures. She had 18 offspring between 1944 and 1960. Counted among her important sons and daughters are Pomeranets by Priboj (1952), Nomenklatura by Naseem (1954), Monopolia by Priboj (1956), Metropolia by Priboj (1957), Malpia by Priboj (1958) and Magnolia by Arax (1960). Mammona, Taktika, and Taraszcza together represented the best mares at the stud farm.
