He currently works at the Topoľčianky National Stud in the position of "head of horse breeding and trainer of racehorses".

Selection commission for horse breeding MP and RV SR on 13. - 14.10. 2021 carried out Autumn evaluation of breeding of horses in NŽ "Topoľčianky" š.p. 7 Lipizzaner stallions, 44 Lipizzaner breeding mares, 7 Shagya-Arabian stallions, 34 Shagya-Arabian mares, 7 Hucul horse stallions, 26 Hucul horse mares, 1 stallion in breeding of Slovak warmblood, 4 English thoroughbred mares, 2 breeding stallions of the Arabian thoroughbred breed, 2 mares of the Arabian thoroughbred breed, young horses of all breeds up to 3 years, 38 horses in training, 35 sport horses and 5 racehorses owned by NŽ "Topoľčianky" š.p.

The commission positively assessed the readiness of all facilities and horses for the autumn evaluation. All breeding facilities and the surrounding environment were well prepared. The Commission positively assesses the good fitness and health status of horses and hoof trimming, the hoof shoeing and overall appearance of the horses shown, as well as the condition of reproductive performance in all herds, given the introduction of nationwide insemination in the 2021 season (76% fertility).

The Commission positively assessed the zoological measures taken with regard to the herpes virus, internal parasites, disinfection and remediation of stables and pastures for horses, as well as the renovation of the breeding facility Breziny.

The Commission recommends the usage of breeding stallion Siglavy Bagdady VIII in the next breeding season due to his advanced age and the rarity of the line in the herd of Shagya-Arabian mares, as far as possible in view of his age and state of health.

The Commission positively assesses the cooperation with the Marbach State Stud Farm in securing top stallions for the Slovak warm-blooded herd at the National Stud Farm and for private horse breeding.

Employees of NŽ “Topoľčianky“ š.p. ensured the run of the autumn evaluation at a high level. The Commission highlights the correct dressing and professional presentation of the horses, as well as the complete breeding records submitted. During the Autumn evaluation, stallions and young mares were pre-selected for breeding training.

The selection committee appreciates the long-term breeding work in preserving valuable genetic material in the 100-year history of horse breeding, dignified celebrations associated with the international breeding championship of 4 horse breeds with 160 horses from 11 European countries, ending with a gala program.

During the evaluation, there were horses suggested for sale and castration.
