Price statistics 62. Online-Auction foals dressage talents

Münster: The online foal auctions at the Westphalian Studbook got off to a successful start. In the lot of 21 dressage foals, 86 percent found a new owner. Sons of Skyline to B and Benicio danced to the double price peak of 19,500 euros. For the most expensive pony foal, customers invested 6,750 euros.

At the Westphalian Studbook, the first online foal auction of the year came to an end this evening. 21 "Dressage Talents" were up for sale here, including six pony foals. A total of 18 of the offered foals could be successfully sold this evening.

Right at the start of the auction, a son of Skyline to B danced his way into the hearts of the customers. His dam is none other than Verb.Pr.St. Envy by Ehrenstolz, who already showed an outstanding price leader at the Westphalian Foal Auction in 2017 with Schlaumeier, who sold for 100,000 euros. Sound of Silence also comes from the breeding of Rebekka Brak, Verl. He changed to Swedish ownership for 19,500 euros. Also achieving the top price of 19,500 euros was a son of Benicio/Zoom. Head number 10 Be my Love (breeder: ZG Hilgemann, Ladbergen; exhibitor: Stefan Hilgemann, Ladbergen) convinced another customer from Sweden and will thus start his career in Scandinavia in a few years.

Together with Sound of Silence, the head number 3 Fürstin (breeder and exhibitor: Philipp Borkenfeld, Olfen) will make the journey to Sweden. Fanegro, a young stallion from the Beckmann station, convinced here with a representative of his first vintage. With a hammer price of 15,000 Euros, the black mare became the most expensive filly. She was bred out of the Verb.Pr.St. Melanie FB by Millenium. She descents from the same mare line as Sole Mio, who was once sold at the top price of 195,000 euros at a Westphalian riding horse auction and was highly successful under the saddle of Fabienne Müller-Lütkemeier.

13 of the 15 riding horse foals offered for sale found a new owner this evening at an average price of 10,904 euros.

Of the six pony foals offered, five changed hands at an average price of 5,300 euros. The most expensive offer was head number 13, a son of the champion stallion of the Westphalian Small Horse Licensing 2021. Gummibär by Gold Garant/Domingo (breeder: Gabi Neumann, Soest; exhibitor: Lina König, Soest), changed to Spanish ownership for 6,750 Euros.

Already in one week the next foals will be for sale at the Westphalian Studbook. The lot of the young talents for dressage arena and jumping course are already available for viewing online. Bids can be submitted from May 18 to 22.
