Bonds offspring once again on top for 21,000 Euros

23 foals sold for an average of 7,837 Euros

Münster: The Westphalian Stud Book auctioned 23 foals this evening for an average price of 7,837 Euros. Future hopes for the dressage ring and show jumping course were among the auction candidates. The most expensive offer was for the second time a descendant of Bond. Bondadoso was worth 21,000 Euros to his new owners.

A fortnight ago, a daughter of Bonds was the top-priced horse at the Westphalian Online Auction. This evening, it was a colt that particularly convinced the customers in Westphalia. The son of Bonds/Fidertanz (breeder: Elisa Mora and Michael Menke, Steinhagen; exhibitor: Luis Mora, Karlsruhe) was born with a top dressage pedigree. He descents from the dam line of Franziskus, who is very successful under the saddle of Ingrid Klimke. Bondadoso changed hands for 21,000 Euros. Another dressage foal cracked the 10,000 Euro mark. The son of Dancier Gold/Sir Donnerhall I (breeder: Ludger Wigger-Pieper, Telgte; exhibitor: Max Wigger-Pieper, Telgte) is the full brother of Debby, who was already successfully sold at a Westphalian online auction last year. Don Diego aroused the desires of several bidding parties, who fought for the winning bid until the very end. In the end, the young stallion was knocked down to Denmark for 14,500 Euros.

The most popular jumping offer was a daughter of Cornado I, who was successful with Marcus Ehning. The likeable filly entered the Westphalian auction stage with the head number 25. The successes on the dam's side also raise hope for a glorious future for Cornado's Chianti (breeder and exhibitor: Astrid Jerzmann-Fritzsche). Her dam, the performance mare Landy by Lissabon, was successful in international jumping competitions up to 1.40 m under the saddle of the breeder's daughter. This filly was sold at the hammer price of 8,750 Euros. After twelve bids from nine bidders, the foal with the head number 15 changed hands. The son of Conthargo, Casito (breeder and exhibitor: Dietmar Schmidt, Hövelhof) was sold for 8,500 Euros. His dam Ducati by Diamant De Semilly is a half-sister to two internationally successful show jumpers.

Of the 32 foals offered, 73 percent changed owners that evening. In total, the Westphalian Stud Book generated a turnover of 180,250 Euros. Of the foals sold, four will start their journey abroad in autumn.

Those who were not successful this evening can already secure another Westphalian young talent in a fortnight. The collection of the next online auction with 35 dressage and jumping foals as well as three ponies can already be viewed online with photos and videos. Bids can be submitted from 23 to 27 June at
