For the final for the Virbac Trophy of the Gelder foals, six colts and four fillies entered the arena. They were well-matched. The jury was comprised of Marloes van der Velden, Reijer van Woudenberg and Wim Versteeg.
The champion of the fillies was Robinetty II (s.Henkie), bred and owned by Ria Hekkert of Wijhe. This foal has a remarkable walk, light-footed trot, a powerful canter and a lovely posture. Her dam is the preliminary keur mare Zusinetty (s.Sam R.). Her competitor was the champion of the colts, Royal Air. Another complete foal this son of Alexandro P. He comes out of the keur mare Lione Air (s.Edmundo). The well-developed bay is bred and owned by P. Brand of Ridderkerk. In the exciting final both showed themselves one more time. The jury, cheered on by the audience, elected Robinetty II as the overall champion.
