Foal auction Prinsjesdag kicked off his foal auction season today with an online auction; the Comme Il Faut son Comme D RH Z became the top-seller for 22,000 euro. However, the most expensive foal was a showjumping foal, but the dressage foals were particularly popular at the online edition of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag; with an average price of almost 10,000 euro and a top price of 15,000 euro, the dressage foals sold very well.
A Japanese investor, based in Germany, did particularly good business at the May edition of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag; in addition to the Comme Il Faut x Dominator Z colt Comme D RH Z for 22,000 euro, this investor also purchased the Comme Il Faut son Charming Leva WD Z and the Dominator Z son Double Trouble RH Z. The showjumping foals were eventually sold for an average price of almost 9,500 euro.
The dressage foals auctioned particularly well tonight; of the twelve dressage foals, six were sold for 10,000 euro or more. The Dutch buyers hit their stride; the So Perfect daughter Riva-Noeska became the most expensive of the dressage collection for 15,000 euro. The Totilas son Roaring Spring SSS also remains in the Netherlands and was sold for 13,000 euros. Furthermore, the Johnny Depp son Riverdale SQBS went for 12,000 euros, the Fontaine TN son Robinson for 11,000 euros and the For Ferrero son Revano and First Date daughter Ruby VDV for 10,000 euros.
20 of the 22 foals found a new owner through Prinsjesdag Foal Auction; thus the sales percentage is high at this online edition. “We welcomed many new buyers and bidders again on this online edition,” said chairman Arjan van der Waaij. “It is great that we are able to reach a larger and larger buyers audience. In particular with the dressage foals, we think we have made another step in the right direction and we are very much looking forward to the auction days in September.”
