What a start during the first KWPN Online Foal Auction of 2021. With five foals who sold for at least €6,000 and 11 who were sold to foreign buyers, this auction was a successful first edition. Especially the dressage foals were very popular.
The foreign interest present earlier this year during the KWPN online auction for three- and four-year-olds was similarly enthusiastic for this foal auction. When bidding opened last Friday, there was already global interest in 20 of the foals, and in the last hours several foreign buyers made their move.
The auction toppers were the Vaderland son Reggae, and Romeo Angulo Sambecano, a colt from the first crop of the stallion Lord Romantic. They both sold for €8,500 following tough bidding duels between buyers from the Netherlands, Germany, the United States, Belgium, Ukraine, and Sweden. Finally, it was the American's who won the battle.
Last year the Grand Prix stallion Hardrock Z became available for breeding, and from his first generation his son Ricard H.M. was sold for €8,000 to Belgium.
The next selection and video day will take place on Saturday, July 17.
