At the Foal Auction Prinsjesdag on the 17th of September, our selector Willem van Hoof and rider Harrie Smolders offer a covering of their outstanding Emerald van ‘t Ruytershof son Escape Z as an opening auction item. The proceeds from this cover will go entirely to the charity, Support Casper.
The striking Emerald van ‘t Ruytershof son Escape Z is a half-brother of the valuable Grand Prix sport and breeding stallion Untouchable (by Hors La Loi II). Both stallions were bred by Willem van Hoof out of the elite sport-spr prestatie mare Promesse (s.Heartbreaker). The now seven-year-old Escape Z was already extremely successful in the young horses classes in England under the saddle of co-owner Danielle Ryder and is now ridden by top rider Harrie Smolders. Smolders has been the co-owner of the top talent since last year and with that Escape Z has a promising future ahead of them. Last month the duo was already in the spotlight at the Stephex Masters in Brussels, where they were clear all days and became sixth in the 1.40m/1.45m YH Grand Prix.
On the day of the show jumping bred foals, the 17th of September, this cover made available by Willem van Hoof and Harrie Smolders, will be auctioned at Foal Auction Prinsjesdag in Ermelo.
