We briefly review the champion foals, supplemented with expert comments from the jury, starting with Vinson van het Beukenhof, bred by Liesbeth Molenberghs, who was victorious in the category for male dressage foals. Jury member Jef Govaerts stated about this son of Dream Boy out of Funny Dark (Fidertanz - Dream of North x De Niro): “A foal with a well-developed upper part and a good general impression. He can trot very strongly. Vinson was the most complete foal in terms of conformation and movements.”
Vitali van de Kempenhoeve (Farrell), bred by studfarm De Kempenhoeve won the series for female dressage foals. “Vitali scored the highest in all criteria. She can move very light-footed and can also gallop very well,” Govaerts said.
