With a record price of € 85,000, the extreme dressage talent Nouvelle Feniz Texel (by Glock’s Toto Jr.) turned out to be the absolute top seller of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag. A good average price of € 12,500 was realized at the second day of the auction. Just like the day before, with the show jumping foals, there was a lot of interest from all over Europe for the outstanding collection of foals.
On the 26th edition of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag, the dressage talents proved to be popular. The extraordinary Nouvelle Feniz Texel (Glock’s Toto Jr. x Negro), bred by Willem van der Linde, produced an exciting bidding duel in which family Dantism had the last offer. Their ten-year-old daughter Aaliyah immediately fell for the extremely talented filly , which is sold to them for € 85,000. Also excellent prizes were achieved by Natural Spring SSS (by Totilas, € 56,000), Ninvasion (by Glock’s Toto Jr., € 32,000) and Nox (by Fürst Romancier, € 30,000). “Last year we had a record breaking auction with the dressage foals, which created a challenge to equal it this year. We are very pleased that we have been able to realize such a successful auction again, with almost the same average price. A lot of foals are sold for very good prices including an extreme outlier in terms of price and quality. Every time Nouvelle Feniz Texel showed her amazing talent. And we have seen that dressage foals have to present themselves very good at the auction. Their presentation at the auction day is really the deciding factor for most buyers”, says chairman Arjan van der Waaij at the auction.
A lot of interest
Most foals have new Dutch owners and several future talents have been sold to strong dressage countries as Germany and Denmark. “There was a lot of interest for the foals from all over Europe, we already noticed before the auction. Both the VIP and the tribune were jam-packed, which not only led to good prices but also a lot of atmosphere.” Just like yesteray the online live bidding, which has been introduced by Foal Auction Prinsjesdag in The Netherlands this year, turned out to be successful. “As an organization, we are pleased to be able to once again live up to the high expectations. It will be a great challenge this next year, but that’s how we like it!”
