The non-stop online foal auction carrousel continues. At another Westfalian online foal auction, which concluded on 13 July, the filly Valencia (by Vitalis x Krack C) was the best seller.
Thirty foals were offered for sale, 25 of them sold to new owners; the fillies sold best.
Valencia is bred by Carla Bunt-Crum from The Netherlands and is a full sister to the licensed stallion Vaderland. She sold to FK Sporthorses for 24,000 euro and will move to the same yard as Vaderland himself.
Debby (by Dancier Gold x Sir Donnerhall) sold for 17,500 euro.
The most expensive colt was Vegas (by Viva Gold x Dante Weltino), which fetched 15,000 euro.
Three foals will travel to Scandinavia, one to Switzerland. The average price for a foal was 8,200 euro.
The catalog number one (which is often the foal/horse the auction expects to sell best), Antje Heumann's bay colt Eure Lordschaft (by Escamillo x Ampere) did not reach the reserve price, even though the bidding went all the way up to 45,000 euro. He did not sell.
The average price for a foal at this auction was 8,200 euro.
