“The Power of Performance” is the motto of Prinsjesdag and this was not denied during the auction on Tuesday evening, September 20. Chairman Arjan van der Waaij: “The auction got off to a slow start, but after the break the international buyers were able to appreciate the fantastic foals well. The auction was well attended by an international buyers audience, both physically and online. A hybrid auction remains an attractive way to market foals.”
Canadians were in the market for the interestingly bred Sir Mowgli SVN Van 't Studutch (Mowgli VOD x Diamond Hit) bred by Stal Studutch and Stal Van Nobelen. They had no less than € 55,000 left for the full brother of the GP dressage horse Hot Hit, who recently won the GP in Saumur.
The second money was paid for Vainqueur's son, Supérieur. His grandmother Fantasie is at the origin of several sport horses. He found a new owner for € 44,000 in a well-known international stallion breeder.
The most expensive jumping foal was Balou's Girl W (Balou du Reventon x Kashmir van 't Schuttershof) out of the famous Roosakker mare line. She found a new owner for € 38,000.
The half-brother of the KWPN approved Defender Z, Shamrock VDS (Grandorado x Padinus) raised € 26,000.
The average of the dressage foals was €13,756. The average for the jumping foals was €13,128.
