Anniversary edition tastes like more

Foal Auction Prinsjesdag has been proving its great value for 25 years. That was reason for several anniversary promotions in 2017 and as icing on the cake, records were broken at the 25th edition of the foal auction. The intensive efforts to put together top collections and to get the right buyers to the auction were optimally rewarded.

Top prices

Among the jumping foals, two fillies with a top price of €48,000 took the crown. The Nixon van 't Meulenhof daughter Rosie van het Netehof was sold to Iran, while Riante VDB (by Cicero Z) came into the hands of the Schuttert family. Jumping foals were also sold to countries such as America, France, Canada, Estonia and Germany. More than ever it became clear that pure quality and sky-high expectations, or 'power through performance', are being paid for. In 2017, the magical one-million-euro barrier was broken for the first time for jumping foals.

Another party

A day later, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag again turned into a party. With an average of €12,725, the dressage foals scored excellent in width, and this also turned out to be a new record. Movement wonder Marilyn-Dine (by Daily Diamond) was a fantastic outlier with a price of €70,000 and is looking forward to her future at RS2 Dressage. Also striking was the high percentage of new buyers who showed that they had found their way to Foal Auction Prinsjesdag in 2017.
It is certain that the 26th edition will again be a highlight. In connection with the World Equestrian Games in Tryon, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag is deviating from the tradition of organizing its auction on the third Tuesday of September. On September 11 and 12, the jumping foals will be presented on the first day and the dressage foals on the second day at the National Equestrian Center in Ermelo.
