Münster: The collection of the 1st Westphalian Online Auction for foals predispositioned for jumping was met with great interest by the customers. At an average price of 13,854 Euros, 12 youngsters fort he show jumping course were sold. With a knock-down price of 30,500 Euros the head number 5 Take on me was the most popular foal.  

The Westfälisches Pferdestammbuch e.V. is currently focusing on online marketing. The first of five online foal auctions this year ended on Monday evening. 15 jumping foals with international pedigrees were for sale in the lot of this online auction. The most sought-after offer was the Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve/Eldorado van de Zeshoek son Take on me (breeder: Frank Timmreck, Hohenberg-Krusemark Schwarzholz). In an exciting bidding duel the bidding period for the colt with head number five was extended again and again. At 8 pm the colt was sold for 30,500 Euros to Germany. The bay, who descents from the direct dam line of Django Unchained T, who is successfully competing with Simone Blum, was sold to an international show jumping stable in Baden-Württemberg. The second most expensive colt in the collection was head number 6 Cornet Blue (breeder: Heiko Oltmans, Westerstede). The name of the dark bay stallion refers to his famous parents. The Cornet Obolensky/Chacco-Blue son was sold to Russia for 22,000 Euros.

With a knock-down price of 30,000 Euros, the most coveted of two fillies was in no way inferior to the colts. The Dominator Z/Cornet Obolensky daughter Diva Dominator with head number four (breeder: Bernd Kröger Dinklage) descents from a dam line that is already sport proven. The grey will remain in Germany in the future. She was sold to a jumping stable in Lower Saxony.

Three of the 15 foals offered could not meet the price hoped for by their breeders. On average the customers invested 13,854 Euros in the 12 foals sold. The total turnover amounts to 166,250 Euros. Three foals were purchased by customers from abroad. They will be travelling to Austria, Russia and Italy in autumn. "We are highly satisfied with the outcome of this first online auction for foals predispositioned for jumping.  The customers' interest was already great in the run-up to the auction. The result shows the great popularity of the Westphalian foals. We are also very pleased about the many  bidders from abroad," auction and marketing manager Thomas Münch is very happy with the result and thanks not only the buyers but especially the breeders for the trust they have placed in the Westfälisches Pferdestammbuch.
