First Borculo JST Foal Auction collection announced
When the first edition of the Borculo JST Foal Auction was introduced earlier this year it was already stated that a special collection of exclusively bred jumper foals would be auctioned at this new auction concept. The organization, in the hands of the Elite Foal Auction Borculo, kept its word. On Friday, June 1 six genetically high-valued, athletic top foals will come under the hammer during CSI3* Jumping Schröder Tubbergen (JST). As of today, this special collection can be found on the Foal Auction Borculo website.
All six foals descend from leading sires and dam lines that are infused with sport genes. The word ‘exclusive’ applies directly to the colts of Chacco Blue and Cumano. These two stallions will hardly give offspring anymore while both of them are recognised worldwide as top-class progenitors. Two fillies are also part of our collection. Both their sires performed convincingly at the 2016 Rio Olympics, with the golden Big Star in front and in his wake the phenomenal multiple Grand Prix winner Quabri de l’Isle. Two colts from the highly regarded Diamant de Semilly and Comme Il Faut complete our collection, which on father’s side alone is already fantastic.
Dams and dam lines
Nevertheless the dams and dam lines of our foals make the difference and the picture perfect bottom line. In the pedigree of all of these dams we see several generations filled with internationally qualified show jumpers. A brief look at these top broodmares shows that we have two mothers that each have produced several international jumpers, and one even three 1.60m qualified horses. The other four, mostly young mothers, are in their turn a half-sister or even more closely related to at least three international jumpers and/or approved stallions, with one mare being the three-quarters sister to Sterrehof’s Calimero.
Jan Markink, chairman of the Elite Foal Auction Borculo, is confident about the first edition of this new auction: “All preconditions have been met to make the Borculo JST Foal Auction a success. I would also like to compliment our selection committee. Once again they have succeeded in selecting a high-quality collection of, in this case, early born foals.”
About Borculo JST
The initiative to introduce the Borculo JST Foal Auction in cooperation with the BWG Stables of the Schröder brothers is in line with the objectives of the Elite Foal Auction Borculo. Since 1979, ‘Borculo’ has been a household word within the equestrian world and this is partly due to the fact that the organization has always been progressive and innovative. Foal Auction Borculo is therefore the first on many fronts. Not only the first foal auction of the Netherlands or the first based on the highest average auction price, but also traditionally the first auction of the regular foal auction season. The same goes for this year when we have our main auction on August 29th (jumper foals) and 30th (dressage foals) in Vragender but thanks to the new Borculo JST Foal Auction on the 1st of June we will be kicking off earlier this year in Tubbergen!
Visitors can witness a program full of sport at international level during CSI3 * Jumping Schröder Tubbergen. The presentation of the foals is directly after the 1.50m FEI ranking class and the auction is right after the closing 1.45m class. The entry for this event is free.
