Excellent collection Prinsjesdag online; top foals with a story
On Tuesday, September 21, they will be auctioned, 78 top foals that the selectors have chosen with care for you. Foal auction Prinsjesdag has a very high standard and the selected foals can therefore be seen as the cream of the crop. Just like last year, Prinsjesdag is fortunate to receive visitors and you can bid live and online.
Selector Fred van Straaten, who is responsible for the jumping foals together with Willem van Hoof: “We were able to select a fantastic collection of foals. As a buyer you are looking for certainty in a foal, you find that in the genetics and the conformation and movements of the foal itself. Once again, we succeeded in finding foals that provide that certainty. By means of ICSI and embryo transfer, genetically better material is becoming available but buying an unborn foal still involves risk. With these foals we have the genetics and we can actually see that they are well put together. We are very happy that we have built such a relationship with top breeders that we can select such foals, which have a story behind them. As an auction, I think we distinguish ourselves by the references we have built up over the years. We have sold a large number of top horses as foals and that says something!”
Dressage selector Cas van der Oord and his colleague Lauw van Vliet were also looking for foals with a story. “For Prinsjesdag you want to select foals from special mare families and we succeeded! Of course there are very interesting colts among them with a view to the stallion selection. However, someone who is looking for something special to start a breeding line with, has the choice of some very special fillies.” One of those fillies is Rosatrichta van de Westen, the national foal champion and daughter of Le Formidable. Revolution daughter Rumor Zenzi comes from the dam of the approved stallion Next Romancier and a lineage full of sport. From another top line, that of Davino and Ub 40 comes Roluciënne by Bordeaux. The beautiful Reya is a daughter of the brand new world champion Kjento from the direct dam line of Painted Black and Premier.
“A fine example besides that is Rosy Murona, out of one of Holland’s best dressage pedigrees who has been combined here with Feinrich. This half-brother of For Romance gave the champion of the elite inspection in Rastede this year and the extraordinary mare Nizelle who finished high at the NMK. As for the colts, it is fantastic that we are allowed to auction the full brother of Nouvelle Feniz Texel. The Franklin out of the dam of Charlotte Fry’s Dark Legend is very interesting as are the sons of Vivino and Mc Laren. This collection has nothing but stand-outs,” said Van der Oord. Of course there is the possibility to contact one of the selectors if you want more information about the foals. They can be reached via our office at +31(0)35-2053035.
The foals will be auctioned on Tuesday, September 21 at the National Equestrian Center in Ermelo.
