Running over four days during the French National Young Horse Championships in Fontainebleau, only three lots were needed on the first evening to launch a very good start to the FENCES Auctions – and quality ensured that the pace was maintained throughout.

On the first evening, the very good overall impression was reflected in the figures: sales of €860,000 instead of €676,000 in 2022; 23 of the 28 lots changed owners, including nine for export at a price of €273,000.
The top price for three-year-olds went to the exceptional jumper Kuroo d’Aunou (Untouchable 27), who joins the stables of the Haras du Fougeray et du Reverdy, which was also very active with the purchase of the promising Kasall du Bidou (Casall) and Keep Well (Contendro). On the foal side, René Lopez didn’t want to leave the project of raising Crack Blue d’Altenbach (Chacco Blue) – a full brother to his crack Kheros van't Hoogeinde – to anyone else.
With 25 out of 30 horses changing hands, the second evening saw a very active market, with French buyers accounting for 80% of sales, and plentiful internet bidding.
The evening’s top price for three-year-olds went to the impressive Konisha des Forêts, a daughter of Dominator, who gave a veritable recital to raise the bids to €60,000. It was closely followed by Promiss ES by Comme il faut, who sold to Belgium for €58,000; and Armani vh Beeckhoff (Amadeo), selling to a new French owner for €58,000.
A top price of €34,000 for foals was achieved by Chacco-Blue daughter Narcotique Blue, and Nirvana du Ponant (Conthargos), a sister of Dubaï du Cèdre.
The general impression that emerged after two days was that the very demanding market is giving better average prices than in 2022 for exceptional subjects, but less generous than last year for subjects that were a little disappointing in their presentation...
