Eight embryos and eight broodmares were sold during the recent Westfalian online auction. Among the embryos was an unborn offspring of Chacco-Blue, who was expecially popular. Bred out of a successful dam, the embryo was sold to Mexico for €18,500.

In future, the expected foal will enjoy the Mexican sun with his/her new owner.

The Cornet Obolensky x Lancer II daughter Cornetina (bred by Zhaskiv Equestrian Sports School LLC, in the Ukraine; exhibited by Dr. Michael Rüping, Breitenburg) descends from the mare line of Giljandro van den Bosrand (2006/BWP Orlando x Clinton), who was successful at CSI5* level under the Czech flag with Anna Kelnerova. Cornetina is in foal to Chacoon Blue and was worth €15,500 to her new owners from Germany... To read the complete article you need to be a subscriber
