The great number of quality horses caused Youhorse.auction to decide that the June auction needed an extra day. The result? More than a million euro in sold horses. Splendid results with an unusual auction topper. For it is the same that was sold one month before and also for the same amount: 66,000 euro for N-Dominantje (Dominator Z x Calvados). This impressive 4-yr-old will go to the USA.
“Occasionally we get buyers who do not pay their dues, like any other auction. That is rotten luck, but in this way we managed to make it alright again”, says Mario Everse, together with Alan Waldman the organizers of Youhorse.auction.
N-Dominantje’s seller is pleased with the result. “When such a horse is put up for auction again, people may not trust it. Why was the horse not paid for? Is there something wrong with it? But I decided to try again. I have a lot of confidence in this horse and in Youhorse.auction and it worked out alright.”
There was a lot of interest in the showjumping horses on Monday 6 and Tuesday 7 June. On day 1 the best-selling horse was Norway VZ (Aganix du Seigneur x Mr.Blue) who went for 34,000 euro, an Olympic rider just missed out, but returned the second day and claimed the 3-yr-old stallion Olivier (Jordan x Vigo d’Arsouilles).
Some of the 3-yr-olds had a lot of fans. Asca-Lady S Z (Asca Z x Carolus II) went to Germany for 45,000 euro, Sorella van de Brouwershoeve (Toulon x Kannan) will be stabled in Belgium for 40,000 euro. Two mares with exceptional showjumping qualities.
The Americans bought a total of eight horses, including the striking 5-yr-old chestnut Mercurius IV S (Zambesi TN) for 32,000 euro. One of the three horses going to Mexico is Phytagoras van ’t Laarhof (Jewel’s Diamant) for 30,000 euro. The buyers were a motley lot, for sales were realized by 23 different countries, even South Africa, Bulgaria, Turkey and Argentina. The 24th edition of Youhorse.auction is planned for 2 to 5 July next, again with youngsters and horses under saddle. The 25th edition from 30 July to 2 August is focused on breeding, with foals and broodmares.
