Famous lines Usha van 't Roosakker and Van 't Merelsnest represented in Prinsjesdag collection

The selection committee of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag also traveled across town and country this year to select the best foals for the show jumping and dressage auction on Tuesday 13 and Wednesday 14 September. Even foals from the famous and sought-after lines of Usha van 't Roosakker and McLain Ward's Olympian Sapphire or the Van 't Merelsnest breeding are again part of the show jumping collection this year.

The colts come from the line of the world famous mare Usha van 't Roosakker this year Quantum of the Bishop (Untouched x Elvis ter Putte) and Quando van den Bishop (Harley VDL x Stakkato).

Quantum van den Bisschop is one of the few descendants of the recently deceased Untouched, who belonged to one of the greatest jumping talents in the world under Ben Maher at the age of nine. In addition, Quantum was bred out of the young, promising mare Mevita van den Bisschop, the half-sister of the international show jumping talents Josephine van den Bisschop (Alberto Zorzi), Isaac van den Bisschop (Hansueli Sprunger) and Jackson van den Bisschop (Sabrina van Rijswijk). Great-granddam Evita van 't Roosakker is a direct daughter of Usha van 't Roosakker and is therefore the full sister of Emperio van 't Roosakker (Alexandra Crown) and Equador van 't Roosakker (Frédéric David) and the half-sister of the famous Cella ( Ben Maher) and the promising young stallion George Z.
Via the mare Mandy van den Bisschop, Quando van den Bisschop goes directly back to Josephine van den Bisschop, who already jumps at international level at the age of seven under Alberto Zorzi – stable rider of Jan Tops. The great-granddam of Quando van den Bisschop is Evita van 't Roosakker, the Nabab de Rêve daughter from Usha van 't Roosakker.

The colts Qionno van 't Merelsnest (Kannan x Nabab de Rêve) and Quizano van 't Merelsnest (Diamant de Semilly x Kannan) represent this year the famous strain of Sapphire (McLain Ward) and Glasgow van 't Merelsnest (Jur Vrieling).

Qionno van 't Merelsnest descends from the talented mare Latina van 't Merelsnest who goes back to Wendelina van 't Merelsnest via Indi Blue-W van 't Merelsnest. This mare jumped at international 1.50m level herself, is the full sister of McLain Wards Sapphire and produced Glasgow van 't Merelsnest and Edjaz van 't Merelsnest (Ward De Bie) among others.
Quizano van 't Merelsnest has a pedigree to dream of with Diamant de Semilly, Kannan, Mr. Blue, Lord Z and Darco consecutively. Ultimately, Quizano's pedigree also goes back to the line of the two-time gold Olympian Sapphire.
