Hannelinde wins VSN, Hummer second

Today two horses sold at Foal Auction Prinsjesdag dominated the VSN final for 3-year-old dressage horses in Ermelo. Hannelinde TC (Dream Boy x Sunny Boy) took home the VSN-title with an incredible score of 53 points, including a 9.5 for trot! But Hannelinde TC was not the only successful Prinsjesdag-sold horse: Hummer (Charmeur x Daddy Cool) earned fantastic third place with 51.5 points.

Dream Boy-daughter Hannelinde TC was auctioned at Foal Auction Prinsjesdag in 2012 and is closely related to the Grand Prix horses Uiver and Pavarottie. Hannelinde was bred by G.A.E.M. van der Linden from Vlierden and is currently owned by Tim Coomans from Oud-Beijerland. Judges Tineke Bartels, Imke Schellekens and Dana van Lierop gave Hannelinde TC a well-deserved 9.5 for trot and a 9 for canter, the ride ability and overall impression. After riding her guest rider Dana van Lierop gave the Dream Boy daughter also a 9.

Hummer (Charmeur x Daddy Cool) was bred by J. Duivenvoorde from Alkmaar and is a son of the mare Caresia, the half-sister to the KWPN approved stallion Dream Boy – also the sire to winner Hannelinde TC. Hummer is owned by J.J. Schalekamp from Dordrecht and scored 51.5 points in the final of the VSN-competition. For his canter Hummer scored no less than a 9.5 and for his trot and overall impression Hummer received a 9!

Foal Auction Prinsjesdag congratulates the breeders and owners of these talented top horses with this fantastic result! The Power of Performance!
