Foal Auction Prinsjesdag kicked off its foal auction season today with an online auction; the Comme Il Faut son Comme D RH Z became the auction topper for 22,000 euros. This made the most expensive foal a jumping foal, but the dressage foals were particularly popular at the online edition of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag; with an average price of almost 10,000 euros and a top price of 15,000 euros, the dressage foals sold well across the board.
A Japanese investor, based in Germany, did very well at the May edition of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag; In addition to the Comme Il Faut x Dominator Z foal Comme D RH Z for 22,000 euros, this investor also purchased the Comme Il Faut son Charming Leva WD Z and the Dominator Z son Double Trouble RH Z. The jumping foals were eventually sold for an average price of almost 9,500 euros.
The dressage foals were extra popular tonight; of the twelve dressage foals, six were sold for 10,000 euros or more. The Dutch buyers struck a chord; the So Perfect daughter Riva-Noeska became the most expensive of the dressage collection for 15,000 euros. The Totilas son Roaring Spring SSS also remains in the Netherlands and yielded 13,000 euros. Furthermore, the Johnny Depp son Riverdale SQBS went for 12,000 euros, the Fontaine TN son Robinson for 11,000 euros and the For Ferrero son Revano and First Date daughter Ruby VDV for 10,000 euros.
20 of the 22 foals found a new owner through Foal Auction Prinsjesdag; therefore the sales percentage is high on this online edition. “We were able to welcome many new buyers and bidders to this online edition,” said chairman Arjan van der Waaij. “It is great that we are able to reach a larger buyer audience. We think we have taken another step in the right direction, especially with the dressage foals and we are really looking forward to the auction days in September.”
