THE AUCTION® REVEALS AN EXCEPTIONAL WINTER COLLECTION OF EUROPE’S EMBLEMATIC BLOODLINES AND TALENTS
“2020 WINTER SALE”-online 10-11 & 12 DECEMBER 2020 www.theauction.online
After Hong Kong and Paris, The Auction® is back and presents an exceptional collection for its “2020 Winter Sale” to be held on-line, from 10 to 12 December. This sale features a unique Winter Collection of Europe’s emblematic bloodlines and talents including young and experienced perfomers, approved stallions, one yearling and exclusive embryos, all with remarkable origins and aptitudes.
This Winter Collection is the result of a rigorous selection process carried out throughout the season by The Auction®; drastic choices made with the aim of offering the market lots that meet the highest standards.
Whether you are an international rider, professional or amateur, junior or young rider with international ambitions, breeder or investor man or woman, breeder or horse dealer, the collection of the 2020 Winter Sale, the fifth edition of The Auction®, has the potential to fulfill all needs and desires.
After a difficult year, marked by the pandemic and the cancellation of most of the international events, it is more than ever time to prepare and build for the future and invest in an exceptional offer of outstanding sport horses and embryos.
On the performance side, the choice could not be more diverse. From the 4YO mare Nina (Numero Uno x Landanel) who concluded her first season in the competition ring as 2020 4YO British Champion in Bolesworth; to the confirmed KWPN 11-YO Grand-Prix level mare Eijkhof Elexia, by CalvaroZ, with many international placements to her record notably a win in 1,45 M class in GCT Chantilly 2019; the 7YO approved stallion Carrement J&F Champblanc who concluded the season with a third place podium at the 7YO Belgian Championships; or the 7YO grey Selle Français mare, Dagada de Grevis, by Cardento x Heartbreaker, who finished 7th in the French Championships in Fontainebleau this year.
Others will be seduced by the spectacular paper of Montego Z, a daughter of the vice-world champion Mylord Carthago and the dam of the legendary Taloubet Z. Other lots of 6, 7-year olds, Gjamaika Song (by Cristallo), 8YO mare Evita, by Diamant x Cash, 10th the 7YO 2019 World Championships in Lannaken, or spectacular grey gelding Avecoli are all ready to set off for the high level: they have the experience and the results.
Amongst the less experienced high potential generation, young approved stallion Casalento PS, by Casalco x Cento, 6-YO Orchidee Van Dorperheide, or Conbalto PS by Conthargos x Baloubet du Rouet, hold all the talent and promise of a bright international career.
Whatever the level and the objective, all are horses ready for high level competition, well in their head with genetics ensuring successful career change in breeding at the end of their sporting career for mares and stallions.
As far as breeding is concerned, but also “betting on the future”, the collection of embryos is particularly precious: a future full sister of World Cup winner Tobago Z, a granddaughter or grandson of a Ratina Z clone with the handsome Emerald for father, a Chacco-Blue, the stallion of the year with an approved stallion’s full sister, a Dominator 2000 Z, a must today etc. A dream that will come true for some on December 12th, when the final (but virtual) hammer blow will fall on the platform www.theauction.online. We will also follow with curiosity the bidding on the only yearling of the collection, Noemie d’Ecaussines, who is making her second appearance at The Auction®… But the first time… she wasn’t born. She was sold for €40,000 as an embryo at Act I of the Hong Kong auction.
