After two embryo auctions in the Arabian Emirates and Norway and two live foal auctions, Flanders Foal Auction will hold its ‘Grand finale’ on Saturday-night 12 September. In this last auction of this year 38 showjumping foals are auctioned.
Like for the previous, successful edition, Travers Horse Facility will be the auction location, situated close to Equestrian Centre De Peelbergen in Kronenberg, Limburg. “We were very warmly welcomed there last time and we had a splendid auction”, say Luk Van Puymbroeck and Gerald Lenaerts. Travers Horse Facility does not directly profile itself as an event location, but is a big fan of the local horse sport and therefore makes its accommodation once more available for the foal auction. Clipmyhorse.tv will be there again, as well, for the livestreaming for people staying at home.
Six by Chacco Blue
The collection of showjumping foals again makes your mouth water. Chacco Blue fans get six opportunities to claim one of his offspring. Emerald is represented by five foals and Conthargos by four. Baloubet du Rouet and Cornet Obolensky each have two foals in the race.
“We would have liked to offer less foals, but at the end we were offered such fantastic foals from breeders that normally would not sell or put their foals up for auction. We have, I believe, an unique collection again with foals out of great damlines.”
Excellent sport lines
The foals raise high expectations. Take, for example, the very athletic Crack Devil Z (Chacco Blue x Shindler de Muze), grandson of the reputable broodmare Fragance de Chalus (dam of Mylord Carthago and Bamako de Muze), Honduras Z (Heartbreaker x Corrado) out of the well-developed 1.50m level showjumping mare Costa Rica and half-sister to the 1.60m GP horse Chesall Zimequest ridden by Simon Delestre, or the Emerald son Emirates van Overis, full brother of the 8-yr-old 1.50m level placed Mandato who, so says his rider Christian Ahlmann, can jump next year’s Aachen Grand Prix.
One of the Chacco Blues is out of the dam of the 1.60m Grand Prix stallion Halifax. Selected are also an Emerald out of the half-sister of Gerco Schröder’s former champion stallion Berlin, a Casall out of the same dam as the Olympic showjumping horse Grand Cru van de Rozenberg and a Hickstead out of the 1.60m Grand Prix mare Ciske van Overis Z. Also the lines from Larthago, Casall, Baloubet du Rouet, Chellano Z and Plot Blue are represented.
Centa de Muze
Special is that three foals are directly or from the offspring of the Belgian super mare Centa de Muze (Cento), dam of two 1.60m, two 1.50m and two 1.45m level showjumping horses. Centa de Muze herself produced auction foal Don Julio T40 Z (Diamant de Semilly). She is grandam of Cergy LVP Z (Cornet Obolensky x Darco) out of the internationally already very successful 6-yr-old Ola Kala de Regor and she is the great-grandam of Blues Z (Bamako de Muze x Cornet Obolensky), whose 6-yr-old grandam Ohaj de Regor is internationally successful in young horse classes.
