Full House in Münster-Handorf

OnLive Auction of jumping foals a true success

Münster: 31 foals predispositioned for jumping were for sale at the OnLive auction this evening. At an average price of 10,600 Euros, 25 of the auction candidates changed hands in front of a full house. The top price was achieved by Chacco's Star by Chacco-Blue with the head number 100 and a hammer price of 43,000 Euros.

During the Westphalia Week, the dressage arena in Münster-Handorf became the auction venue for the OnLive Auction for foals predispositioned for jumping. 31 auction candidates with the finest pedigrees were up for sale. The young prospects were in great demand. In front of a full audience, 19 foals changed hands with the live knockdown by auctioneer Thomas Münch. Six were knocked down online to customers in front of their screens at home.

The auction collection started with a very special offer with the head number 100. As an embryo out of an OPU-ICSI mating, Chacco's Star already changed hands at a Westphalian auction. The world sire Chacco-Blue is the sire of this healthy colt (breeder: Commercium Helsen, Belgium; exhibitor: Ringo Rösch, Wiershop). His genetic mother is the Heartbreaker-daughter Indra van den Bisschop. She descents from the direct performance line of Jade van den Bisschop, who was successful in CSI5* competitions. At the top price of 43,000 Euros, the young colt changed hands and became the property of loyal Westphalian customers.

Campino was worth 19,500 Euros to customers in the USA. The son of Conthargos/Diarado (breeder and exhibitor: Karl Cramer, Coesfeld) paraded with the head number 103. His dam, the Verb.Pr.St. Diva Royal, is a half sister to the advanced level successful Codigio.

The most sought-after filly this evening was head number 102. Comlesta V (breeder and exhibitor: Hermann Vogt, Drensteinfurt) descents from the direct family of the internationally successful Classic Man V, who is highly successful under the saddle of Christoph Kläsener. At 12,000 Euros the virtual hammer fell in favour of a bidder online.

In total, the 25 foals sold turned over 265,000 Euros. Nine cracked the 10,000 euro mark. "With an average price of 10,600 Euros in total for the foals sold, we are highly satisfied. I am pleased that this OnLive Auction has been so well received by our customers and friends and I am in very good spirits for the second part tomorrow afternoon," said auctioneer Thomas Münch. Starting at 4 pm tomorrow afternoon, around 80 dressage foals will be up for sale at the Westphalian Horse Centre. Bids for this second part of the auction can also be placed live and online.
