Online Limburg Foal Auction takes a big step forward

1 October 2022

Two days after the very successful live auction at the Peelbergen Equestrian Centre, forty foals exchanged owners via the online edition of the Limburg Foal Auction. This resulted in a success, because the average price was € 8,600 and with that the auction has made a big step forward. With a price of €20,000, the Emerald van ‘t Ruytershof son Stormchaser V was the best seller.

There was a lot of interest in the carefully selected foals. The biddings for the powerful colt Stormchaser V (s.Emerald van ’t Ruytershof) were mainly coming from Irish and American clients, and the latter have won. A nice amount was also paid for the promising Dark of the Moon (s.Dominator Z), this filly is sold to Great Britain for €19,500. The genetically interesting colt Charlie 707 Z (s.Cornet Obolensky) has acquired Irish owners for €17,000 and the well-bred Warentina van ‘t Goolder (s.Zirocco Blue VDL) is leaving for Canada for €14,500. Other foals have been sold to clients from Hungary, Belgium and Germany, among others. “We have seen around us that online auctioning is a good way to sell foals. This year we have been able to make a big step in terms of results and have achieved an average price of more than 2,000 euros more than last year. There was a lot of interest in the foals and in this way we were able to conclude a wonderful week”, says Paul Hendrix. Last year, the 30 foals in the online auction fetched an average of €6,500, now with 40 foals that has raised to €8,600.
