The year has started very well for Global Dressage Auction. The absolute top seller of the exclusive embryo auction was the unborn foal by Ellis out of the daughter of Weihegold OLD. For a whopping 62,000 euros, this embryo leaves for Denmark.

“This is really a fantastic start to the auction year of Global Dressage Auction. A year ago we just started this auction platform and we could only dream of such a result. The goal is to make the best dressage genes available and to market them internationally, and we have succeeded once again!”, responds a very satisfied Koos Poppelaars.

It remained exciting for a long time, several bidders from Germany, Denmark, the Netherlands, Colombia and America were aiming for the unborn foal of Ellis out of Aweih (by Apache), the daughter of Weihegold OLD. The final bid of 62,000 euros came from the Danish Lone Bøegh Henriksen, owner of HP Horses. She invested in this very exclusive embryo. “We have already had so much success with this damline. So we are extremely happy with this purchase”, she said.
