€38,000 twice during Zangersheide Online Foal Auction: A collection of 25 foals was offered for sale and once again attracted a great deal of national and international interest. With buyers from the United States to Iraq and prices up to almost €40,000, it was another successful edition.
With a view to a future career in sport for his son Zayed Ali, Iraqi investor Abu Zayed Ali already bought the filly Uzuri 1991 Z during the first Online Foal Auction last month. Delighted with his acquisition, he returned and invested in no fewer than five new foals, becoming the new owner of, for instance, the filly Chacco Lina Jeba Z, a daughter of Chacco Blue and Artos Z who was bred by Jean Bams. Chacco Lina Jeba Z is out of the grey mare Aida Z and is thus a half-sister to the Grand Prix horses Air Borne Z (Air Jordan Z), Cartos Z (Candillo Z and, of course, Zangersheide approved stallion Cosmos BH (Chellano Alpha Z), who finished second last weekend in Williamsburg under the saddle of American Mimi Gochman. Chacco Lina Jeba Z sold for €38,000.
The same amount was also paid for the filly Chakira Van Mander Z. Chakira Van Mander Z, bred by the Lansink family, and is also a daughter of Chacco Blue in combination with Diamant de Semilly. Dam Nara is also the full sister of H&M Miro, the GP horse of Belgium’s Olivier Philippaerts. Chakira Van Mander Z found her new owner in Sweden after a hard-fought bidding duel. The colt Unforgettable Touch Z, attracted the third-highest price. Bred by Harald Gassen, who combined the blood of World Cup winner United Touch S with that of Quattro B, Unforgettable descends from the same dam line as the GP horses Chapter One (Carry Gold), Quattro Queen (Quattro B ), and Naiade d'Elsedam Z (Nabab de Rêve). Iraqi Abu Zayed Ali became the new owner for €33,000.
