Two world champions and one vice-world champion have delivered several foals for the exclusive collection of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag for next Tuesday, September 20th. Ermelo traditionally hosts the elite foal auction on the 3rd Tuesday of September; now the 30th edition of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag, founded in 1992.
The selection committees have put together an impressive collection in recent months. Jumping and dressage foals with great models, excellent movements and lots of charisma. And above all, foals with the best genetics; sport damlines, proven genes and young élan. In addition, several foals are closely related to horses that have recently achieved world-class performances.
Take for example Charlotte Fry's world champion Glamourdale; this spectacular black stallion turned the dressage world upside down in Herning by winning two gold medals and causing goose bumps for many dressage enthusiasts. This Tuesday, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag will offer two excellent foals by Glamourdale.
First, Suntresse Texel - a daughter of Glamourdale out of a dam by Glock's Toto Jr x Jazz. This striking filly comes from the well-known breeding farm of Stoeterij van der Linde from De Cocksdorp, Texel. In addition, the colt Star On Firedale MCB; this is a son of the phenomenal Glamourdale paired with Wynton and Ferro. Furthermore, Star On Firedale MCB was bred from the famous lineage of Jazz.
Another medallist from Herning is also represented in the dressage collection: Dinja van Liere's two-time bronze medallist Hermes. His daughter Si Diva Corieta Texel was also bred out of the famous Texel breeding and dances through the arena like royalty. She is remarkably light-footed, charming and has beautiful balance.
Another World Champion...
The second world champion who produced offspring in the dressage collection does not come from the championships in Herning, but from Ermelo. For the second year in a row, the Negro son Kjento won the world title for young dressage horses. Foal Auction Prinsjesdag offers no less than three foals by Kjento: colt Syracuse B (dam’s sire Grand Galaxy Win), colt Stromae T (dam’s sire Charmeur) and filly Sweet Murona (dam’s sire Gock's Toto Jr).
Another World Championships top scorer with Prinsjesdag foals is Las Vegas. This spectacular former Pavo Cup winner fell just short of the podium at the World Championships, but impressed again. His foals Salucy (mv. Metall) and Sylvester de la Vie (mv. Eye Catcher) will be auctioned on Tuesday.
World Cup Silver in Herning
As every year, the jumping collection is packed with performance from proven sport stallions and the world's best damlines. One striking example is the colt by Quel Homme de Hus. Ridden by Jérôme Guery, the Quidam de Revel son Quel Homme de Hus jumped convincingly to individual silver at the World Championships in Herning. However, offspring of Quel Homme de Hus are scarce, but with the impressive colt Quintodecimo SK Z (mv. Chacco Blue), Foal Auction Prinsjesdag managed to capture a son of Quel Homme. Quintodecimo SK Z is bred out of the sister of Hong Kong Grand Prix winner Chablis.
GCT Rome winner Mumbai
Recent successes also came from the grey stallion Mumbai. Ridden by Christian Kukuk, the striking Diamant de Semilly son recently won the Global Champions Tour Grand Prix of Rome. The Gin Flip de Muze colt William Lawson de W&S was bred out of Mumbai's three-quarter sister; in fact, dam Snolle Bolleke JW van de Moerhoeve is a daughter of Diamant de Semilly out of Mumbai's half-sister and Lillie Keenan's full sister Opium JW van de Moerhoeve.
For his part, Eldorado van de Zeshoek TN recently signed on to sire the winner of perhaps the toughest Grand Prix of 2022; the Rolex Grand Slam Grand Prix at Spruce Meadows, Calgary. His daughter Killer Queen VDM jumped with Daniel Deusser to the top prize of 1 million Canadian dollars - over 750,000 euros. Eldorado van de Zeshoek TN also has two offspring in the collection, Sweet Caroline Reuvekamps (mv. For Pleasure) and Sweet Sue Reuvekamps (mv. Chellano Z). The latter is the full sister of reigning Dutch champion Highway TN ridden by Willem Greve.
