Tonight, the 26 lots of the ninth Global Dressage Auction went under the digital hammer. The well-moving Timberland (by Frankie Lee) became the most expensive foal at the auction. This foal was sold to a Czech bidder for 18,000 euros.
“We welcomed many new buyers again tonight. Our platform continues to grow, both in the number of lots, in the reach and number of customers. That’s great to see!”, Koos Poppelaars is enthusiastic afterwards. “For example, the two most expensive foals went to a new Czech customer, a foal was sold to Qatar and a new American customer also bought in the auction this evening.”
In addition to the Frankie Lee son Timberland, Toscane by Opoque also goes to the Czech customer, who is very satisfied with his purchases. He says about Timberland: “I am a real dressage enthusiast and see a lot of potential in this foal. My daughter is a dressage rider and she will train these horses in a few years.” Toscane was sold for 12,000 euros.
On average, the sold foals sold for 9,500 euros. The broodmare Daytona THD (by For Romance) was sold for 11,000 euros and the embryo of Glamourdale out of the full sister of Vamos Amigos was sold for 13,000 euros and is going to Germany.
The next auction will be a collection of frozen and implatented embryos and is scheduled for January. Out of the dam of tonight’s auction winner, two frozen embryos are part of that collection: a For Romance and a Dante Weltino.
