Due to the lifted restrictions by the government regarding the coronavirus, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag sees an opportunity to organize a live auction in September. This auction will take place on Tuesday the 15th of September – whether the jumping and dressage auction will be spread over two days, will be announced later. “With this live auction we hope to conclude a successful auction season in the famous Prinsjesdag style,” explains chairman Arjan van der Waaij.
After the successful online edition in June, the team of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag is currently focusing on the upcoming online auction on Tuesday 21 July. Another online auction is planned for Tuesday 18 August – after that, Foal Auction Prinsjesdag aims for a live physical auction in September.
“Regarding the quality of the foals and the possibilities for the buyers, everything remains the same – both online and for the live auction we aim for the highest possible and also during the live auction, online bidding will be possible”, Arjan van der Waaij looks ahead . “For both the breeders and the customers of Foal Auction Prinsjesdag, we hope that the live auction can take place in September, but of course this depends on government regulations and recommendations from the National Institute for Public Health and Environment.”
Although Foal Auction Prinsjesdag has a tradition of live auctions, the online auctions are most likely there to stay. “We believe 100% in online auctions and in recent weeks we have seen the successes of this format both with us and at other auctions. Regarding the live auction, we will also focus more than before on the online customer base – this way we hope to attract an international customer base for both the online and the so-called hybrid auctions, ”concludes Arjan van der Waaij.
