Top jumping and dressage genetics in Embryo Auction Prinsjesdag

Foal Auction Prinsjesdag is proud to launch the collection of the online embryo auction from February 3 to 7, 2023. Sixteen excellent embryos make up the collection; three in dressage and thirteen in showjumping embryos. A direct For Pleasure embryo out of top mare Evita van 't Roosakker, a Grandorado TN out of the sister of Olympic H5 Quntiol and a Chacco Blue out of the sister of Don VHP Z and HH Carlos Z are some of the highlights in the exclusive collection.

From Friday, February 3 through Tuesday, February 7, the online embryo auction of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag will run and from 8 p.m. on Tuesday the 7th of February, the online auction lots will be closing. This week, the Prinsjesdag team will be present every day at the Prinsjesdag stand at the KWPN Stallion Show and will be happy to inform you about this online auction and its interesting collection!

Glock’s Toto Jr. out of O.Bertje
The embryo auction consists of three dressage and thirteen showjumping embryos. The dressage collection includes, for example, a Glock's Toto Jr. directly out of the famous O.Bertje - dam of Grand Prix dressage horses Tango and Bonzanjo. The other ones are a So Unique embryo combined with the Texel damline and a Hermès out of an interesting daughter of Diamond Hit.

Out of sister of H5 Quintol & out of sister of Don VHP Z
The jumping collection will be enjoyable for many breeding enthusiasts! With embryos by Emerald, Chaccco Blue, Cumano, Cornet Obolensky, For Pleasure and Kashmir van Schuttershof, the big names are represented, but coming stars such as Balou du Reventon, Grandorado TN, Fantomas de Muze, Echo van 't Spieveld and Conthargos also contribute to the collection.
A unique embryo, for example, is the Grandorado TN out of Fin Fleur - she is the sister of Eduardo Menezes' Olympic H5 Quintol and of five more 1.60m showjumpers. Also special is the Chacco Blue out of Ciao Bella van 't Merelsnest - the sister of Don VHP Z who earned more than two million prize money with Harrie Smolders and of HH Carlos Z, who was among the world's most winning horses with McLain Ward.

Directly out of Evita van ‘t Roosakker; directly out of Sterrehof’s Ushi
The For Pleasure direct out of Evita van 't Roosakker is also something unique; Evita is the dam of no less than 14 international showjumpers, including Grand Prix jumpers Jackson, Luigi, Isaac and Melvin van de Bisschop. The Echo van 't Spieveld direct out of Grand Prix mare Sterrehof's Ushi, the Chacco Blue and Cornet Obolensky out of international winner Zizi Donaldson and the Conthargos out of international mare Bluna 28 are also certainly noteworthy.
Furthermore, the collection also includes an Emerald out of the 3/4 sister of Mumbai, a Fantomas de Muze out of a daughter of the legendary Butterfly Flip, a Kashmir van Schuttershof out of a granddaughter of Babbe van 't Roosakker, a Cumano out of the dam of Corlou and granddaughter of Centina, a Balou du Reventon out of Jolly Girl van 't Roosakker - dam of several international showjumpers and daughter of Electra van 't Roosakker, and a Balou du Reventon out of a granddaughter of the world-famous Cordula de Laubry.

Former selector Bert Poppelaars passed away at the age of 71

Last weekend we received the sad news that Bert Poppelaars passed away at the age of 71. Bert has long been a highly valued selector for Foal Auction Prinsjesdag. The team of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag wishes his wife, family and other surviving relatives a lot of strength with this great loss.

Foal Auction Prinsjesdag says goodbye to Fred van Straaten

After 18 years, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag says goodbye to Fred van Straaten as a selection committee member for the jumping breeding direction. The board is very grateful for what Fred has done for the auction in recent years. Fred is a horse man in heart and soul and we are grateful that we have been able to use his knowledge all these years.

Some of the talented horses Fred has selected over the years are: Glamor Girl (by Zirocco Blue VDL) who is currently jumping at 1.60 level with Henrik von Eckermann, Edinburgh (by Vleut) the approved stallion currently under Doron Kuipers 1.55 and not to forget Hernandez TN (by Kannan), also an approved stallion who is currently jumping 1.60m with Kars Bonhof.

The board of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag thanks Fred for his years of dedication.

Mowgli VOD son outlier with € 55,000 during well-attended Prinsjesdag auction

“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.

Collection Foal Auction Prinsjesdag: World Championship medalists fully represented

For the elite auction on Tuesday 20 September, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag has once again put together a spectacular collection. Almost eighty foals in the dressage and jumping direction will be auctioned by auctioneer Koen Olaerts on the third Tuesday of September in Ermelo. The medalists of the past world championships in Herning are fully represented in both breeding directions.

Perhaps the most striking horse of the world championships in Herning was the impressive dressage stallion Glamourdale. Under the British Charlotte Fry, Glamourdale made the hearts of horse lovers beat faster and won two gold medals and a silver team medal in Herning. Lauw van Vliet and Cas van der Oord, dressage selection committee, registered two descendants of Glamourdale for the auction collection on Tuesday 20 September. The filly Suntresse Texel is a Glamourdale daughter from the famous Texel breeding farm and the colt Star On Firedale MCB is a Glamourdale son from the Jazz family.

Glamourdale & Hermes

Glamourdale is not the only top dressage champion from Herning with representatives in the dressage collection; the selection committee also added a descendant of Hermes to the collection. Under Dinja van Liere, Hermes was important in Herning for the Olympic qualification of the Dutch team and he won a well-deserved bronze medal in both the Grand Prix Special and the Freestyle. Special Diva Texel is a filly by Hermes and a striking foal in the collection of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag.

Another world champion who is amply represented is Kjento – last year the convincing world champion for six-year-old dressage horses in Verden. This Negro son seems to have a similar career in prospect as Glamourdale and has already sired three Prinsjesdag foals: Stromae T (ds. Charmeur), Sweet Murona (ds. Glock's Toto Jr) and Syracuse B (ds. .Grand Galaxy Win).

Daughter of Quel Homme de Hus

Fred van Straaten, Willem van Hoof and new committee member Bob Janssens put together a very high-quality show jumping collection. An exclusive foal, for example, is Quintodecimo SK Z. This filly from a performance dam line is a daughter of Quel Homme de Hus. Ridden by Jérôme Guery, the spectacular Quidam de Revel son Quel Homme de Hus won the silver medal in Herning, after not making a single jumping error in five rounds and thus only having to tolerate King Edward. Quel Homme de Hus does not have many offspring, which is why the filly Quintodecimo SK Z is a unique opportunity; especially since she is bred out of a daughter of Chacco Blue and a sister of Grand Prix winner Chablis.

Foals for sport and breeding

Other notable fillies include Shamrock VDS – a daughter of the Nations Cup star Grandorado TN out of the same dam as Defender Z, or Balou's Girl W – a daughter of Balou du Reventon out of a daughter of Electra van 't Roosakker. Also special is Sweet Sue Reuvekamps – the full sister of reigning Dutch champion Highway TN; or Wonder VD, an Emerald daughter from the Van 't Roosakker family. Also colts with potential for sport and breeding are part of the show jumping collection; think, for example, of Uricas van 't Gebergte Z from the direct line of Emerald, William Lawson de W&S – closely related to Mumbai and Opium JW van de Moerhoeve, or El Niño GZ – an Emerald son out of the sister of five-star winner Glamor Girl.

Successful Prinsjesdag auction during CSI Ommen

A fresh, beautiful summer evening during CSI Ommen was the setting for a successful auction of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag. Eight foals and four sport horses, selected by Hendrik Jan Schuttert, were auctioned by auctioneer Koen Olaerts. With a well-filled VIP grandstand and a lot of public interest, both the foals and the horses went over the board like hot cakes.

The most expensive foal was the interestingly bred Samoa W (Scuderia 1918 Tobago Z x Denzel van 't Meulenhof), for € 32,000 he found a new owner in Jan Bakker from Zwolle. The big, strong colt comes from a full sister of the great talent of Jos Verlooy; Nixon van't Meulenhof. The unusual filly Wonder Girl 3 (Aganix du Seigneur x Chacoon Blue) changed hands for € 24,000. The foals were sold for an average price of € 17,375.

For the first time, some talented young sport horses were sold in Ommen. And not without success, because the four horses found a new home for an average price of € 71,250. The most expensive was Mister Rossi (Zapatero VDL x Douglas) for € 85,000. The beautiful stallion Luciano (Grand Slam VDL x Karandasj) went to a new address for € 80,000. Hendrik Jan Schuttert: “I am most satisfied with the fact that the horses go to top addresses. To good riders and amazons, there is a good chance that we will hear from them again!”

The chairman of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag Arjan van der Waaij was also very satisfied with the result: “It was a fantastic evening with excellent results. You can see that good foals with an interesting pedigree generate a lot of interest. It was a great collaboration with Hendrik Jan Schuttert, it certainly leaves you wanting more!”

Foal Auction Prinsjesdag launches spectacular collection for CSI Ommen

Scoop: talented sport horses from Schuttert in Prinsjesdag auction for the first time

With a spectacular collection of jumping foals and riding horses, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag is aiming for a strong comeback at CSI Ommen after two years of absence due to the corona pandemic. This fantastic event of the Schuttert family has built up an enormous reputation and international recognition and Foal Auction Prinsjesdag is proud to be able to organize an auction for the third time at this three-star competition. This year, in addition to eight excellent jumping foals, there are also four extremely talented sport horses, carefully selected by co-organizer Hendrik-Jan Schuttert.

The Schuttert family and Foal Auction Prinsjesdag have had an excellent relationship for years and with this edition at CSI Ommen, the collaboration goes one step further. Hendrik-Jan Schuttert offers four very talented show jumpers in the auction on Saturday evening 9 July. In addition to the jumping horses, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag has selected an exclusive collection of jumping foals.

The foal collection consists of eight interesting jumping foals descending from the best stallions from the leading tribes. Take for example Elton BN Z – a colt by Emerald from the famous lineage of Fair Light, Epleaser and Valentina van 't Heike. Or Waldemar van den Berg, a son of top talent Ermitage Kalone from the Van 't Roosakker family. Another eye-catcher is without a doubt Samoa W – son of Rolex Grand Prix winner Tobago Z out of the sister of Nixon van 't Meulenhof, Emerald, Ilusionata van 't Meulenhof and many more. The Aganix du Seigneur daughter Wonder Girl 3 Leien is also a breeder's dream; she is a filly from the famous line of Qerly Chin.

Four show jumpers were selected by Schuttert Sporthorses for the auction at CSI Ommen. Three talented five-year-olds and one very promising six-year-old complete the collection. The five-year-old Morrison OA (Apardi x Carrera VDL) was purchased as a foal by the Schuttert family at Foal Auction Prinsjesdag and has now developed into an extremely talented show jumper with impulsion, caution and reflexes. The five-year-old Diamant de Semilly daughter Marabel W is in turn a very modern showjumper with a lot of potential for the big sport; the Zapatero VDL son Mister Rossi is the most experienced five-year-old in the collection and stands out for his rideability, enormous scope and attitude. The six-year-old stallion Luciano is perhaps the most promising talent; this son of Grand Slam VDL has all the ingredients to become an international talent.

Exclusive jumping foals and jumping horses in Foal Auction Prinsjesdag at CSI Ommen

After two years of absence due to the corona pandemic, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag is returning this year with an auction during CSI Ommen on Saturday 9 July. Nine excellent showjumping foals and a number of showjumpers selected by Schuttert Sporthorses will be auctioned at the Driehoekhoeve in Ommen. The auction collection will be online on 20 June and bidding can be done live and online on Saturday 9 July.

“Prinsjesdag Foal Auction and CSI Ommen are a good match and that has also been shown in previous editions”

says competition organizer Hendrik-Jan Schuttert. “CSI Ommen stands for top sport, but many of our customers are also present at the competition every year. Prinsjesdag provides a small group of very exclusive foals and we think that a number of high-quality show jumpers will also fit well with this. We go for quality over quantity; we want to add about three or four very talented riding horses to the auction”, Schuttert looks ahead.

The foals will arrive at CSI Ommen on Friday 8 July and will be presented to the public on Friday and Saturday. “This gives all those present plenty of time to view the foals and also to visit them in the stable. The riding horses can be tried by customers during CSI Ommen and interested parties can also make an appointment prior to CSI Ommen to test these show jumpers.”
