On Tuesday 15 September, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag will auction the filly Quality of Darena WD Z in benefit of research into the treatment of melanoma cancer. A share of the proceeds of this Quabri de l’Isle filly will be donated to this research. Quality of Darena WD Z has been made available by the Dekker family from Benningbroek, The Netherlands.
“This spring, our loyal board member Willem Dekker passed away after his battle against melanoma cancer,” says Foal Auction Prinsjesdag chairman Arjan van der Waaij. “In consultation with the Dekker family, the board of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag has decided to devote this year’s charity to research into the treatment of this disease.”
Willem Dekker’s wife Anja and daughters Mariëlle and Yvette decided to make their filly Quality of Darena WD Z available and to donate a share of the proceeds to research into the treatment of melanoma cancer.
Quality of Darena WD Z is a filly by top stallion Quabri de l’Isle out of the Celano daughter Darena. With her excellent pedigree and damline full of sporthorses, Quality of Darena WD Z endorses the motto of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag: “the Power of Performance”. Dam Darena produced the jumping talents Incredible WD and Happy Feet WD and is closely related to Grand Prix showjumpers such as Twister, Osina and Evander HS.
Foal Auction Prinsjesdag takes place on Tuesday 15 September at the KNHS Centre in Ermelo. Due to the corona restrictions, the auction will be organized outdoors this year and therefore the auction will take place during the day. In addition, there is the possibility to bid online. The auction starts at 2:00 PM CEST.
