Escamillo triumphs with his offspring
Dressage foal auction at the Westphalian Studbook
Münster: The foal auction season is coming to a close. In an online auction, the Westphalian Studbook once again offered top foals for sale. The lot contained 26 foals with pedigrees predispositioned for dressage. At an average price of 6,893 euros, 21 of the foals on offer changed hands. The most popular offer of the evening was a daughter of Escamillo/Secret. After 53 bids from 16 bidders, the virtual hammer fell at 33,000 euros.
Eminenz is the significant name of the most popular foal of this auction. This filly has a riding horse pedigree par excellence. She is a daughter of the popular sire Escamillo, who has already shone several times with his offspring in riding horse auctions. She was bred by Erika Oetzel, Viersen, out of the Secret daughter Simply Black. Secret himself was Bundeschampion of six-year-old riding horses and shines with his offspring on the riding and dressage horse arenas of the country. The 53rd bid was the winning bid for the black mare. Eminenz was worth 33,000 euros to her new owners this evening.
The most popular colt of this auction lot will begin his career in Great Britain. Emotion (breeder and exhibitor: Noortje-Radstaake, Netherlands) is a son of Escaneno, who finished his sport test with an outstanding final score of 9.09. Escaneno is also a son of the former Vice World Champion of young dressage horses Escamillo. The dam of this colt is the Capri Sonne Jr. daughter Capri Tanz. She comes from the dam line of the licensed and highly successful sport stallions Welt Hit I to IV. Emotion was worth 9,250 Euros to his new owners.
For the one but last time this year, the Westphalian Studbook offered foals for sale in an online auction. This lot contained 26 offspring predispositioned for dressage. At an average price of 6,893 euros, 81 percent of these changed hands. The Westphalian Studbook thus achieved a total turnover of 144,750 euros. Eight of the foals sold were knocked down to customers outside of Germany.
