Fred van Straaten: “With this group of fillies you are investing in the future”

Prinsjesdag selector Fred van Straaten is full of expectations for the annual foal auction next Tuesday, September 15 in Ermelo. Foal Auction Prinsjesdag will auction 62 dressage and jumping foals both live and online from 2 pm; show jumping selector Fred van Straaten explains in particular the group of fillies.

“We have selected a nice number of interesting fillies for Foal Auction Prinsjesdag”, begins Fred van Straaten. “With this group of fillies you are investing in the future. As a two- or three-year-old you can already start using these mares for breeding and they can earn back the investment. This way you can immediately get a return on your investment and you can have a good sport horse at a later age.”

Fred van Straaten runs through the twelve fillies one by one:

Pixiedette S (Aganix du Seigneur x Clarimo x Voltaire):
“First of all, we bred the Aganix du Seigneur daughter from the Lupicor line. A striking foal that can perform and has a strong hind leg. A typical Aganix offspring and that is a real stallion to use; it gives attitude and strong sports bodies.”

Amanda-K van Kattenheye Z (Amadeo van 't Vossenhof x Zirocco Blue VDL x Corland):
“Father Amadeo is a young, promising stallion who has shown himself very well in the Belgian stallion competition. The dam of this foal Zoe-K van 't Kattenheye was recently at the top of the Belgian Cycle for five-year-olds under Tim van den Broeck and this is also the stock of Carthago. Definitely interesting!”

Andiamo Fee Z (Andiamo Semilly x I'm Special de Muze x Quasimodo Z):
“A foal with a nice print and a good way of cantering – really electric in his body. She also has a nice blood build with I'm Special de Muze on the mother's side; I'm Special is starting to break through with his offspring. Then Quasimodo Z who has fully proven himself and then from such a strong Dutch stock.”

Chardonnay van Kattenheye Z (Chacfly PS x Nabab de Rêve x Marius Claudius):
“Chacfly can sometimes take over from his sire Chacco Blue, so a daughter of this stallion is certainly interesting. In addition, this foal goes back to the Grand Prix mare Sea Coast Ferly; this Qerly Chin strain provides a lot of security for the future.”

Chic Future RL Z (Cornet Obolensky x Cartano x Galoubet A):
“This Cornet Obolensky foal is well put together; a beautiful foal. She also comes from a good stock. Mother jumped in the sport herself and already gave in an international show jumper and grandmother gave two Grand Prix show jumpers.”

El Paso Z (El Barone 111 Z x Calvaro Z x Capitol I):
“El Barone is a very special stallion; if you see him jumping again recently in Valkenswaard, just after such a busy breeding season. This is a very interesting foal straight out of the top mare Capitola Z, who has produced many good horses over the years.”

Philadelphia V (El Barone 111 Z x Eldorado van de Hexagon TN x Lux Z):
“This dam line has already produced many serious sport horses; the dam and grandmother of this foal both jumped well in sport. The mare Bermuda forms the basis of many international show jumpers. In addition, this is an elegant foal that can walk easily.”

Havanna Z (Halifax van het Kluizebos x Sandro Boy x Chellano Z):
“We have successfully auctioned foals from this line before. This line of Larthago has been amply proven and that is not only because of Larthago itself. Sandro Girl Z, the dam of this foal, also produced a number of excellent sport horses. There is enough to say about this dam line!”

Ulise van 't Merelsnest (Kasanova de la Pomme x Mr. Blue x Voltaire):
“With this filly, the upcoming stallion Kasanova de la Pomme is paired with the top line of the Van Bunder family; the strain of Sapphire and VDL Glasgow van 't Merelsnest. Kasanova de la Pomme is living up to it in sport and breeding – that stallion is really coming.”

Kato vh Gebergte Z (Kazan Z x Numero Uno x Lys de Darmen):
“A very tough foal with a strong body and a super canter. A really special foal from a very special tribe; this Van 't Heike line gives sports on all sides. Sire Kazan Z is still a young stallion, but with his pedigree he does have the potential to become a top stallion.”

On Fire vd Berghoeve Z (O'Neill van 't Eigenlo x Kassander van 't Roosakker x For Pleasure):
“This is perhaps one of the most interesting fillies. If you look at this blood structure with the upcoming breeding stallions O'Neill and Kassander and then proven stallions and mares who have really proven it themselves. Grandmother jumps Grand Prix and great-grandmother is the former World Champion Liscalgot – talking about attitude and hardness. In addition, this foal is extra interesting because of the strong Irish dam line; different blood, but proven.”

Quality of Darena WD Z (Quabri de L'isle x Celano x Farmer):
“Nice gesture from the Dekker family to make this foal available for charity. Immediately a striking foal with his special markings and good way of moving. Sire Quabri de l'Isle is one of the best sport stallions of recent years.”
