From the 24th till the 27th September, online bids can be made for the sixth foal auction on the KWPN Auctions platform. The collection includes 21 dressage and 15 show jumping foals, descending from stallions such as Cornet Obolensky, Pegase van ‘t Ruytershof, Eldorado van de Zeshoek, Ferguson, Chippendale, Dream Boy and no less than four foals by World Champion Kjento.

First-class damlines are represented within this collection. Several foals are bred from dams or half-sisters of international sport horses. During the photo and video days, all foals were assessed by the KWPN inspector and a veterinarian. This means that all the foals are selected on health and correctness, which makes sure they have a promising future.

Dressage talents
From the damline of the great ‘discovery’ at CHIO Aachen, the outstanding Hermès under Dinja van Liere, originates the Mephistoff DC foal Rebel. His dam Eveline is a half-sister of the international Grand Prix horse Bonheur de la Vie (by Bordeaux) and this line leads back to the granddam of the KWPN approved stallion Hermès and his also approved half-brother Johnny Cash (by Bon Bravour). We see more Grand Prix genes in the pedigree of the filly Ramona. This Magic Boy daughter was bred out of a half-sister of the international Grand Prix horse Gibson (by Jazz) ridden by Pia Fortmuller. With the World Championship in Verden still fresh in our minds, it is always interesting to look for foals sired by the World Champion Kjento. His son Royal Dance B comes from a dam who performed at ZZ-Licht/fourth level herself. The Kjento filly Romance was bred out of a half-sister of the international Grand Prix horse Zanzibar (by Rousseau) and has the same granddam as the Grand Prix stallion and top progenitor Apache (by UB40). The Kjento son Reafun also comes from a good family, from which René Franssen has bred a number of prominent sport horses. Granddam Binette is a half-sister of Leslie Morse’s international Grand Prix horse Kingston (by Voltaire). A promising foal from WK Verden competitor Johnny Depp is also up for auction. This Romano Boy JS comes from the damline of Small Tour horses such as Gadget (by Ziësto) and Alonso (by Sandreo). And what about the Franziskus filly Riona van Kairos, who was bred out of a half-sister of the international Grand Prix horse Fallatijn (by Vivaldi) ridden by Laura Tomlinson.

Jumping foals
This collection also offers many interesting foals for lovers of jumping horses. For example, Roscoe J.E. (by Chopano Z) was bred out of a half-sister of the Grand Prix stallion Carbani (by Carolus II) with which Ali Rahmati performed. Royal Livano (by Inaico VDL) comes out of a half-sister of the Grand Prix horses Fantast (by Indoctro) and the stallion Unaniem (by Numero Uno), and Riva T (by Kensington) was bred out of the direct damline of the former top horse of Timothy Hendrix, the Cantos son Very Nice. Riavanta van ‘t Kattenbos (by Opium JW van de Moerhoeve) has the same granddam as the Grand Prix horses Dyranta van het Rhen (by Kashmir van Schuttershof) and RR Bellerose (by Kashmir van Schuttershof). In addition, three foals are bred out of mares which have jumped at least 1.30m level themselves, such as the Pegase van ‘t Ruytershof son Rockstar whose dam jumped at 1.35m level and is an international eventer, and the dam of the Cornet Obolensky son Rivelino is an international 1.35m level performer.
