Westphalia's future in the big show jumping courses

Eldo's Son as most popular jumping foal into promising hands

Münster: 19 foals with a pediree predispositioned for jumping were up for sale this evening in the online auction of the Westfälisches Pferdestammbuch. About 70 percent of them were successfully sold at an average price of 8,327 Euros. With the head number 1, Eldo's Son advanced to the top price of this auction. He will grow up in Olympic hands.

14 bidders had their eyes on the head number 1 of this auction collection. The Eldorado van de Zeshoek son was bred and exhibited by Cord Schwenker from Hille. The dam of this colt is the Verb.Pr.St. Lancley by Lancer III, who is none less than the dam of the Nations Cup winner Chacco's Son. Under the saddle of Maurice Tebbel the stallion jumped to great successes. Twice the pair was part of the winning Nations Cup team in Aachen. No wonder that the successful show jumper and Olympic participant also had his eye on the half-brother of his successful horse. For the hammer price of 17,000 Euros, Eldo's Son changed hands and into ownership of the family Tebbel. In the future, the second most expensive foal of this auction will travel to the USA. The Emerald van het Ruytershof/Cornet Obolensky son (breeder and exhibitor: Andreas Klaaßen, Bocholt) was worth 13,000 Euros to the American customers. Exciter AK's dam is the half-sister to the internationally successful show jumper Alberdina.

The virtual audience did not have to wait long fort he most popular filly of this auction with the head number 2. Chantilly by Cornet Obolensky/Sandro Boy (breeder and exhibitor: Thomas Sagel, Brakel) had the favour of six bidders. They competed with 18 bids to win the filly. The dam Verb.Pr.St. Südafrika already produced several high-priced foals at the Westphalian auction. It is the direct genetic line of Ultima, who celebrated international advanced level victories for Germany with Carsten-Otto Nagel. Chantilly changed hands at the hammer price of 10,000 Euros.

Of the 19 jumping foals offered, 13 changed owners this evening. With a total turnover of 108,250 Euros, the customers invested an average of 8,327 Euros in their future hopes for the show jumping course. The young show jumping prospects were internationally sought after this evening. Five of the sold foals will start a journey abroad in the future.

On 29 July, the next foals with jumping potential will be up for sale in an OnLive Auction as part of the Westfalen Week. Bids can be placed online and live on site. A collection of dressage foals will also be up for sale in an OnLive auction on Saturday, July 30.
