At the last minute, the selection committee secured a very exclusive foal for the auction. It is rare that a foal with absolute top genes is for sale. Aranix Rising Z is such an exception. His dam is Lady D van ‘t Roosakker. As her name may suggests, a direct offspring of the renowned Roosakker line. One of the best mares in the world is at the basis of this lineage: Usha van ‘t Roosakker. Ridden by Caroline Poels-Devos, Lady D van ‘t Roosakker jumps at 1.40m level.
She is the full sister of Grégory Wathelet’s Kassander van ‘t Roosakker. The expectations of this approved stallion are sky-high. Another full brother is Kaprice. He is the 1.60m horse of Kent Farrington and already claimed two Grands Prix. The dam of these three top horses is Electra van ‘t Roosakker, that jumped at the highest level with Janika Sprunger. This colt is sired by Aganix du Seigneur, the stallion that first earned his stripes in the arena and is now gaining praise for his extraordinary offspring.
Pieter Jan Berkers: “We are more than happy that we have been able to add Aranix Rising Z as a wildcard. It is a foal that ticks all the boxes. He is developing well, and he has a mouthwatering pedigree.”
Experts know this is an exceptional addition. So, it comes as no surprise that there is already significant international interest in this appealing colt. He will be auctioned online at Foal Auction Borculo on August 24.
