On August 31 the Breen Equestrian Elite Auction saw Z7 Porsche attract international bidding enthusiasm before finally changing hands to a UK customer for £230,000, just under $265,000.
A 2015 chestnut stallion by Emerald van't Ruytershof x Cancara, Z7 Porsche has already shown his Grand Prix potential after winning the CSI-YH1* final in Abu Dhabi. He was sold with an entry to this year's Horse of the Year Show after placing second in the Foxhunter at Hickstead. Likewise, his resumé includes multiple top-five placings in both national and international seven-year-old classes. He also won this same age-group final at Northcote's Young Horse Show.
Z7 Porsche shares his bloodline with world-class showjumpers, including Kasper vh Hellehof (1m70), Imerald van't Voorhof (1m65), Igor (1m65), and Jaguar van de Berghoeve (1m65) a.o.
Two other horses sold for over $100,000: the seven-year-olds Cinderella Z II (Comfilo Plus Z) for £130,000, and BE Golden (Golden Hawk) for £145,000.
