Jul 20, 2020 · Wendy Scholten · Breeders Auction (July 2020)
If you want to upgrade your breeding stock or claim a young promise for the international showjumping sport in the future, you will have a good time with the fourth edition of Youhorse.auction. On Monday 27 and Tuesday 28 July foals, embryo’s, broodmares and a stallion will be auctioned online. The bidding starts on Saturday 25 July.
The auction’s theme is ‘World’s best breeding’ and that is no exaggeration. Mario Everse and Alan Waldman, themselves breeders of numerous Grand Prix showjumping horses, bring in the best from their own studfarm. The collection is completed by several foals and mares from third parties.
Mario Everse, who earned the WBFSH title of best breeder of the year 2018 because of the performance of top horse Zinius under Harrie Smolders, confirms the theme ‘World’s best breeding’. “We have really great bloodlines and even nine direct products of Big Star, which Alan and I owned before he came under the saddle of Nick Skelton to later become Olympic champion. The foals are looking good as well, it’s not just a good story on paper”, he says.
Selling young horses from their own breeding hardly occurred before, but Everse and Waldman are getting overstocked and now their clients can profit from the situation. They only breed with sport families. Damlines such as Van ’t Roosakker and Qerly Chin de Muze are well represented, but the auction also includes foals and embryo’s out of Grand Prix mares or mares closely related to Grand Prix horses.
Among the embryo’s you can find, for example, a Carambole and an El Barone III out of Danielle G. Waldman’s Grand Prix mare Jativia (Cardento) and a Chacco Blue out of a full sister of Etoulon VDL. There are also foals by top-class sires such as Aganix du Seigneur, Balou du Rouet, Cardento, Catoki, Chin Chin, Comme il Faut, Cornet Obolensky, Diamant de Semilly, Dominator Z, Hardrock Z, Levisto Z, Luidam and Verdi.
All the foals and mares have passed clinical examination. The reports will be made available online. If you want to see the foals in the flesh, you are quite welcome after making an appointment. Arrangements have been made with professional rearers, where clients can have their foal grow up. There is nothing that prevents you to make an investment in a young talent or genetically highly interesting stock.
