At the Equestrian Center De Peelbergen, the 18th edition of the Limburg Foal Auction takes place today, where more than 100 foals are auctioned. A great moment to put one of the striking references in the picture as Horse of the Year. Cas 2 (s.Indoctro) was born in 2007 by breeder Th. Taks from Blitterswijck (NL), who offered him a few months later for sale at the Limburg Foal Auction. There the young jumping talent was discovered by Mr. Tiernan Gill, who just received together with the breeder a beautiful photo of this LVV ambassador.

Great record
Cas 2 started his international sporst career in 2014 under the saddle of Cameron Hanley. Exactly two years later, the Indoctro son made his 1.60m debut with this Irish rider. In the 4* Grand Prix of Liverpool, Cas 2 was able to finish with only one down. A year later, he was purchased by the Copernicus Stables, and Audrey Coulter became the new rider. After a while Harrie Smolders took over. With this rider Cas subsequently won the 1.60m Accumulator at CSI3* Birmingham, the 1.50/ 1.55m class at CSIO5* Rome and the 2* Grand Prix at Lanaken.
