A very diverse collection of horses was knocked down on Tuesday-night 7 March in the Youhorse.auction. The 4-year-old Verdi TN son Ongering claimed the top price of 65,000 euro and fell into Israelian hands.
An unique occasion, as the highly talented stallion exceeded himself here. Ongering (Verdi x Concorde) had also been the auction topper in the January auction of Youhorse.auction. Mario Everse explains: “Ongering had already feaatured as a remarkable horse in the first auction of this year. Unfortunately, the sale flopped. Last minute it was decided to offer him again. And again the bidding was hot, which proves that such quality is always recognized. A great result for the seller.”
Two horses went for exactly 38,000 euro. One of them was the veteran Veyron Lassergut (Hy D’Isigny x Caletto I). The 14-yr-old gelding had already gained experience up to 1.45m level and will continue his career under the Turkish flag. The same amount was realized by Tangelotta (Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve x Zirocco Blue VDL) and she will travel to the Mediteranian region. The 5-yr-old mare is one of the newest acquisitions of a regular Greek buyer.
An Irish buyer appreciated the solid genes of Rihanna van ’t Schuttershof and paid 34,000 euro. The 6-yr-old mare is not only a daughter of Kashmir van ’t Schuttershof, she was also bred out of the damline of this legendary stallion. Closely followed the 12-yr-old Laszlo (Larimar x Calato) who went to Canada for 32,000 euro.
Mario Everse adds: “At the end of the evening there were two horses that suddenly caused a fierce bidding duel. That made it exciting for all concerned until the very last moment. The Tangelo daughter Tangelotta was bought by a Greek buyer who had been successful before at several of our auctions. The 4-yr-old Diacontinus son Diaron was claimed by a buyer from Great Britain.”
The 3-yr-old palomino Phontaine (Tinka’s Boy x Magic Memphis) stays in the Netherlands for 19,000 euro. Same amount was also paid for the 4-yr-old stallion Top Gun (Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve x Lancelot). Top Gun is one of two horses to leave for Slovenia. There were also several sales to the Czech Republic, Rumania, Slovakia, Poland, Italy and Germany. Biggest buyer was again the USA with six purchases.
The auction displayed great variety not only in the buying countries and the offer that varied from broodmare to schoolmaster, but also in the sales prices. The lowest price was 5,000 euro. The collection again provided for every purse.
On Tuesday 4 April the next auction will be held. This edition is focused on free jumping horses and horses under saddle. The selection/video days are 13 and 14 March. “With a satisfied feeling we are looking back to the next round. Coming Monday and Tuesday we hope to compile a fine collection again. Anyone who believes to have something special to offer is invited to enter them via www.youhorse.auction,” Mario Everse concludes.
