22 September 2016
Over a hundred foals were sold by auctioneer Koen Olaerts at the Limburg Foal Auction this afternoon and this evening. The sixteenth edition of the Limburg Foal Auction has been extremely successful, with an average price of 9.100 Euros, a dressage top-seller for 45.000 Euros and a jumping foal for 34.000 Euros.
Today, many breeders turned out satisfied and many buyers were full of enthusiasm during the Limburg Foal Auction at Equestrian Centre de Peelbergen. In a smooth auction, Koen Olaerts auctioned a total of 107 jumping and dressage foals for great prices. Besides a number of expensive top-sellers, a great number of foals was sold for a satisfying price for both the breeders and the buyers, many of these foals were sired by young, promising stallions.
Selector Cor Loeffen was a happy man afterwards. “We have discussed the number of foals quite sometimes, but we can be glad to have chosen for this great number of foals again. Of course, we could also only auction the best fifty foals of today and leave the other fifty out. But then there are also fifty breeders who do not sell their foals”, Cor Loeffen stated afterwards. “In the end, we organize this auction on behalf of the breeders and for us it is of great importance to offer our breeders a podium to sell their product. We are delighted to see Limburg Foal Auction has succeeded in this again this year!”
The top-seller of the auction became the dressage colt Lardeaux (Ferdeaux x Wynton). The exceptional mover stays in The Netherlands for a price of 45.000 Euros. The most expensive showjumping foals almost all ended up in Turkish hands. The Carpe Diem Equestrian Team purchased no less than five foals, including the sales star of the jumping foals Leon Hodieza (Comme il Faut x Nassau) for 34.000 Euros.
