Westfalen: Advanced Horse Auction Cancelled

The Westfalian breeding society launched a new project to hold a mini auction of advanced level trained horses in partnership with Team Balkenhol. This auction ended up being cancelled and became an open sales. 

Six horses were offered for sale: Amando's Hope (by All at Once x Scandic), Lasogga S (by Lord Loxley x Grosso Z), Quentin vZ (by Quaterback x Latimer), Silverline (by Sunday x Ehrenmann), Garant Dree Boeken (by Grey Flanell x Werther) and Random B (by Rock Forever x Don Gregory). The starting price was 100,000 euro for each horse. 

“We have found that the time factor plays a crucial role in the sale of further trained horses. A fixed auction date makes it more difficult for everyone involved to achieve successful marketing. For this reason, we would now like to offer the horses for free sale,” says auction and marketing manager Thomas Münch, explaining the decision.
