For the ninth time, the organizers of the German Jumping and Dressage Derby in Hamburg are making it possible for a hand-picked selection of 12 quality Holsteiner foals to be put on the auction block.

This year’s appointed date is Thursday, May 9 at around 16:30 [CET] when the 12 high-class foals will be publicly presented for the first time around noon.
Their pedigrees read like a Who’s Who of the international showjumping scene – naturally founded on the Holsteiner Verband’s very best damlines. The line-up includes for example as many as three offspring by brilliant team European champion, Zuccero HV (Zirocco Blue) ridden by Sweden’s Rolf-Göran Bengtsson.
One of them, called Sugar, in the morning, is a young filly from successful mare family 730B, a damline which has been successfully bred and maintained by the Ritters family in Krumstedt for generations. It has produced countless top showjumpers, like Olympic winner Marius (Hinrich Romeike) or the stallion Caracho, now successfully being shown by Steve Guerdat (SUI). Holger Wulschner’s 1m60 level jumpers Zuckersüß d’Argilla and Cefalo are very closely related to this auction filly.
Another very interesting lot is a stallion prospect by Ermitage Kalone out of Irassina’s Way (Colman x Concerto II x Lord) from the famous mare family 1916, none other than a half-sister to the licensed Holsteiner Verband stallions, United Way and Million’s Way. And a Corrado I colt carrying Diamant de Semilly, Vigo d’Arsouilles and Quick Star one after the other on the dam’s side is another gem in this year’s collection...
