We are proud to present the 14 selected embryos that will be auctioned online. Selected from Europe's best dam lines combined with proven and promising stallions. The selectors once again honor our slogan “The Power of Performance”.
Cas van der Oord and Lauw van Vliet, responsible for the dressage embryos, have put together a beautiful collection for you. Cas: “We succeeded in selecting something exclusive. In any case, it is great that we were able to obtain two Indian Rocks. This stallion breaks through with Emmelie Witte-Scholtens and his offspring look very promising. The fact that the embryos come from the mares O. Bertje and Endy O. is the icing on the cake!”
The latter Endy O. is a daughter of Lord Leatherdale and competed at ZZ-Licht level. Endy O. is a daughter of Zendy who was successful at PSG / Inter I level and is therefore one of the many top dressage horses from this line. The other Indian Rock embryo comes out of the famous mare O. Bertje (Contango x Amor). Offspring from this mare are very popular, because everything from the mare seems to be able to exercise. Besides several PSG / Inter I and ZZ-Licht horses, she is the dam of two GP horses, Tango (approved KWPN stallion) and Bonzanjo.
Upcoming talent Total McLaren has an embryo in the auction in combination with Helianthe (Apache x Democraat). “Helianthe is the dam of the KWPN stallion Ladignac, who is doing very well in the sport. Last year, Total McLaren was elected stallion with the most promising offspring in Denmark. We think that in combination with this mare, that can become something very special!” said Van der Oord.
Another stallion dam is Sabine (Havidoff x Wolfgang). In combination with Vivaldi she produced the PSG / Inter I stallion Ferdinand. She also gave three other horses that act at the same level. “The embryo of her descends on her father's side from Glamourdale, who is running very successfully at Grand Prix with Charlotte Fry and seems to be doing very well in terms of inheritance. A very interesting embryo!”
Desperados FRH and Damon Hill
Donnerhall's dressage prowess comes through his grandson Desperados FRH and son Damon Hill. Cas: “Grand Prix stallion Damon Hill is already a somewhat older stallion who, unfortunately, we don't see very often anymore. Here it is used on the half-sister of another Grand Prix stallion, Charmeur from the aforementioned Endy line. A great opportunity to acquire something special!”
An embryo from Desperados FRH, who has been a fixture in the German team for many years, will be up for auction in combination with the Z2 dressage mare Wildfire Ferra (Ferro x Rubinstein I). Van der Oord: “This mare has no fewer than two sisters who perform at GP level. The combination of Donnerhall, Ferro and Rubinstein will make every dressage enthusiast's mouth water. A very attractive embryo!”
For the enthusiast who really can't get enough of Donnerhall, there is a unique opportunity. A straw of frozen semen will be auctioned from this old master! In addition, a straw from Florestan I is offered. Just like Donnerhall, a stallion that never goes out of style. Both straws are free to use for ICSI.
Willem van Hoof and Fred van Straaten, this time with the help of Bob Janssens, managed to collect a very special group of jumping embryos for this auction. With embryos closely related to absolute top mares such as Valentina van 't Heike, Babbe van 't Roosakker, Narcotique de Muze II and Candy, the selectors are very pleased.
Valentina van 't Heike
No fewer than two embryos are closely related to Valentina van 't Heike, the top mare of the brand new national team coach Jos Lansink. Willem van Hoof: “Both embryos come from Numero Uno mares. One of which, Kissable van 't Heike, has been active at 1.40 level and is a half sister of Valentina through her mother. The list of other siblings who jump at a high level is endless. On the father's side, the embryo descends from Glock's London, which is very interesting given his performance and pedigree.” The other embryo from this line comes from a Numero Uno x Darco which goes back to Valentina's mother. “The Darco mare jumped 1.50m and is the dam of toppers such as Fair Light van 't Heike and Evian van 't Heike. Jumping genes galore!” said William.
If For Pleasure x Mr. Blue x Grannus isn't enough to make your mouth water, then it will when we tell you that the Mr. Blue mare (Justine W) is a half sister of the fantastic G & C Arrayan, who is very successful at the highest level. Justine W. now runs 1.35 internationally and seems to be just as talented as her brother. Willem: “Arrayan has proven to be able to perform at the highest level for a long time, that is quality that you really like to see in a mare line. For Pleasure also had the same quality, which makes this embryo very attractive.”
Van 't Roosakker
The selectors have succeeded in selecting no less than two Roosakker scions for you. The embryos of Chacco Blue and Baloubet du Rouet both come from Korona van 't Hoogeinde (Echo van 't Spieveld x Darco x Kannan). Her mother, Geena van 't Roosakker, successfully ran 1.55 and her grandmother is none other than Babbe van 't Roosakker, who was active at 1.60 level. Behind it we see foundation dam Usha van 't Roosakker who is at the basis of all the jumping power from this renowned family (Erco van 't Roosakker, Cella, Emperio van 't Roosakker, Equador van 't Roosakker, George Z, etc.). “This strain needs no introduction, it's unprecedented what talent comes to the surface. That is no coincidence!” said Van Hoof.
Another Chacco Blue embryo will be auctioned in the auction. “This embryo comes from Indiana van HD (Toulon x Nabab de Reve), her dam is the very famous mare Candy. She jumped with Pieter Devos at the highest level. Indiana, successful at 1.45 level, is the dam of Maxwell van HD, who was classified 1.50 at the age of ten,” says van Hoof. Many more top horses come from this line, such as Grand Canyon van HD, Handy van HD and Important de Muze.
Emerald van 't Ruytershof
The now retired giant Emerald van 't Ruytershof can now be found at the top of the rankings as a sire. Our selectors were able to select two unique embryos from him from very interesting mares. “The first embryo comes from the mare G-condita VDH. The grandmother of this embryo produced the 1.60m jumping Ci Ci Senjor ASK, who competed at the highest level under Soren and Karen Möller.”
Emerald's other embryo comes from one of the most famous strains in the world, the Qerly Chin strain. The dam is Baraka de Muze (Goethe x Darco), she is also the dam of Sterrehof's Ushi (successful with the entire Houtzager family at the highest level). Baraka is a daughter of Narcotique de Muze II and that makes her a half sister of Querlybet Hero, Loro Piana Boyante de Muze, Farfelu de la Pomme, Sea Coast Ferly and Giovani de la Pomme. The list with 1.60 descendants from this family is exceptional and that makes this embryo very popular.
