On Tuesday, September 21, our next auction will take place. Last time our selectors have been on the road to select the pearls among the foals. And they succeeded! The selection is complete and we are very pleased with how it looks.
Dressage selector Lauw van Vliet: “I have been following the Prinsjesdag Auction for years, even before I became a selector, and I dare say that this is the best selection we have ever had. A fantastic group of foals with a few real standouts. It strikes me that there are a number of young stallions who breed above average, we were able to select several foals from them.” Van Vliet knows another reason why the average quality is high: “My colleague selector Cas van der Oord is such a fanatic, has so many contacts via social media, therefore knows exactly what is being born and so we are often the first on the spot to view the foal. That works great!”
Willem van Hoof is responsible for the jumping foals together with Fred van Straaten. Willem: “We have a strong collection overall . In the jumpingfoals the sport in the damline is a very important criterion. We have foals with mothers and/or grandmothers who have performed well in the sport and from pedigrees that are full of achievements. Of course, it remains important that the model, foundation and movements are correct. In that respect we have very complete foals.” Van Hoof indicates to have made a nice mix of proven and young stallions: “Of course you do not get out from under the Chacco Blue’s and Cornet Obolensky’s, we have again selected very good foals from them. At least as interesting are the young stallions like Mumbai, O’Neil van het Eigenloo and Uricas van de Kattevennen. From those stallions we have also seen great foals.”
We are eager to be able to present this phenomenal selection to you and hope for a day as wonderful as the 2020 edition.
