Today, Foal Auction Borculo launches the collection of the Elite Foal Auction held on the 23rd and 24th of August. 80 jumper and dressage foals are featured in the collection. Those who are looking for top quality can indulge themselves at Foal Auction Borculo. Browse the entire collection here.
Nol Gerritsen and Wouter Plaizier are responsible for the selection of the dressage foals. The two gentlemen together possess a wealth of experience and the foal inspections showed it pays off. Rose of Turona (s.Las Vegas) was crowned champion of the central inspections. In pursuit was the vice-champion Rain-Beau GS (s.Le Formidable). Mind you, we have more champions for sale. Lagertha LMD, another daughter of Las Vegas, dazzled the jury at the Oldenburg championships where she was elected vice-champion.
Top class colts
The fillies shined at the inspections. The colts gave us goosebumps during the video days. Rocco (s.Fürst Dior) is not only well-bred, he also knows how to move. Those moves, Ruby Tuesday (s.Franziskus) has got them too. Dam Moulin Rouge passed her IBOP test with 9s. Another remarkable colt is Roitaine O, a son of top sire Fontaine TN. It is not so often that a foal excels in all three gaits, but Roitaine O does it. Offspring of the stallions Raven, Jameson RS2, Kjento, Totilas and Secret complete the dressage collection.
Pieter Jan Berkers and Floris van Leuken have acted as our jumper selection committee for years now. They hit the road with one mission in mind: to select foals with an exquisite pedigree, good model and elastic movement mechanism. Offspring of top stallions Halifax van het Kluizebos, Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve, For Pleasure, Chacco Blue and Baloubet du Rouet mark our collection jumper foals. In the end, it all boils down to sport in the pedigree and these foals got that covered.
Headliners in the pedigree
One of the highlights is Ristello M, a full brother to Denis Lynch’s Cristello. The stallion is one of the major players in the current top sport. At the last moment, Aranix Rising Z (s.Aganix du Seigneur) was selected. Dam Lady D van ‘t Roosakker jumps 1.40m herself and is the full sister of Kassander van ‘t Roosakker (Gregory Wathelet) and Kaprice (1.60m under Kent Farrington). This colt is a genetic gem. Grace Chateau Key SR Z (s.Grandorado TN) also has top genes. This filly comes out of the direct damline of Itot du Chateau.
Just like last year, this edition is held online. Organiser Annelou de Man: “Last year the online auction went exceptionally well. This year we would have loved to organise a live event, but the current and unpredictable regulations create too great a risk. We prefer to spend that time on promoting our amazing collection among prospective buyers. We have recorded a lot of (additional) footage, including a unique 180-degree video of the leg positions. Correctness is one of our trademarks. Of course, clients can go visit the foals at home too.”
