It is no longer a secret that the KWPN Select Sale is able to scout quality at an early stage. Many former KWPN Select Sale stallions reach the very highest level in the sport, and not without exception combined with a career as an approved stallion. At Jumping Amsterdam, the KWPN Select Sale advertised in the best possible way: approved stallions running off with prizes.

The best example is the approved Blue Hors Zack. He was sold as a three-year-old for the record sum of 430,000 euros, making him the all-time auction topper of the KWPN Select Sale. The stallion has been competing at the very highest level for years and played an important role in winning team gold at the World Championships in Herning last summer.

Blue Hors Zack comes to 's-Hertogenbosch
This weekend he showed that at the age of 19 he is still in top form and can still compete at world level. In the strong field of the World Cup Freestyle at Jumping Amsterdam, his rider Nanna Skodborg-Merrald broke her PR score with the stallion. The result of 85.220% earned a stunning third place, behind Dinja van Liere and Isabell Werth. "Blue Hors Zack is just great, he is so fit and wants nothing but to do his best. I would have been happy with a top seven ranking beforehand, given the incredibly strong field of competitors. But Zack continues to amaze me", was her reaction afterwards. Blue Hors Zack is attending the KWPN Stallion Show this week.

Dream Boy and Mister Maserati
GLOCK's Dream Boy was also sold as a three-year-old via the KWPN Select Sale and it was good to see the 15-year-old stallion back in the competition ring under Hans Peter Minderhoud. With a technically strong freestyle and a fine image, the stallion ran one of his better tests. The result was 81.970% and sixth place.
The five-year-old Galleria's Mister Maserati impressed under Diederik van Silfhout in the final of the Subli Cup. After the KWPN Select Sale, Van Silfhout took charge of training the stallion, which resulted in victory at Jumping Amsterdam last weekend.
