Recent days were sign of the 40th edition of Sport horses auction Dronten. The Friday night, completed by Adelinde Cornelissen, Theo van der Vendel and various shows, was spectacular. Many visitors, enthusiastic participants and beautiful sport made it an amazing night!
On Saturday afternoon and evening the auction itself was sceduled. Prior to the auction ‘Stable Brouwer’ presented their stallions “It’s Possible SRK” (v. Berlin) and “Fabregaz” (v. Bordeaux) to the audience. The Stallions showed off their best side. The auction started well. Stable Brouwer offered a cover horse. The money was meant for charity foundation KIKA.
In a beautifully decorated and jam-packed ‘Paardencentrum Dronten’ many breeders and owners received good prices for their horses. In addition to all the interested visitors in Dronten, the auction was also very well followed by Uhorse.tv. From home and abroad, there was great interest in the collection of 27 fine horses. The fantastic jumping Stallion Jackson Hole, son of Emir R, got the most bids. After a lot of interest he switched of owner for Eur 30.000. In addition to Jackson Hole, there was also great interest in the big 4 year old Carre JS Z. This Zangersheide registered descendant of Casimo x Libero H could count on a lot of interest from the public and was repulsed at Eur 26.000. Apache son Impossible JJ (Apache x West point) got many dressage hearts beat faster and left for Eur 20.000 with the new owner.
The upward trend of last year is being held. With an everage price of Eur 12.185 the auction was successful and is expired according to forecast. As a final word from the Auction Commission they want to thank all the sponsors and volunteers who participated on this beautiful auction. We’d like to see you again on the foal auction on Friday, September 1st 2017 in Ermelo.
