Yesterday evening in Vilhelmsborg, Aarhus in Denmark, bidders in the arena as well as online were attracted by the high quality of the foal collection, purchasing 43 dressage and jumping foals for an average price of €18,674 – establishing a new price record at Danish Warmblood’s foal auctions.

Head of DWB auction committee Ulrik Kristensen was thrilled: "Danish sport horses have achieved great popularity abroad which is the reason for the massive international attention the auction foals received. We have had online bidders from many countries, and 21% of the sold foals were sold to internet buyers. We experienced a great flow between the arena and the internet, and the concept of hybrid auctions is an indisputable success."

The three most sought-after auction foals were dressage fillies. Helgstrand Dressage placed the final bid of €72,000 on Slangerups Josefine (Jovian x Scolari) whose dam is also the dam of the licensed stallion Flottenheimer.

The filly Fallopia (Blue Hors Zack x Bretton Woods) carries Olympic bloodlines not only through her sire but also through her dam line which she shares with Don Schufro. This filly, bred by Blue Hors, was purchased for €64,000 by the owners of the mare Heiline’s Danciera, who placed seventh in the Olympic Freestyle.

Midnights Florentina (Knock-Out x Fürstenball) is a filly that exudes Grand Prix quality, and she received many bids from abroad and was eventually purchased for a knock-down price of €47,000 to an internet bidder.

Dressage foals by Blue Hors Monte Carlo TC, Secret, Vitalis and Jameson all sold for over €30,000 to buyers in Denmark as well as abroad.

The price highlight among the jumping foals, the colt Checkmate AS (Chacfly PS x Bøgegårdens Lansini) sold for €18,500 to Frandsbjerg Horses who bought no fewer than seven foals at this auction.
