This year's Fences Elite Auction is one to remember... Some highlights!

This year's auction was definitely one for the history books. By definition, each edition that ends belongs to history, but the 2022 Fences Auctions selection will be long remembered. The auction closed with a total turnover of 4.556.000,00 euro. For the first time in the history of the Fences Auctions, the million-euro mark in sales was passed on thursday. 

The show opened on Wednesday. It began with an international auction battle right from the start. Black Jack DK Z (Black Cera DK Z x Clara d'Enfer) was highly wanted and was eventually sold for the stunning prize of 100.000 euro. Shortly after, the son of Cornet Obolensky and Bombe Atomique was sold for 50.000 euro. 23 of the 28 lots offered changed owners for a turnover of 660.000 euro, which was 9% more then the same evening the year before. 

The following day, the real star of the auction presented herself. The mare out of El Barone exceeded the expectations and was sold for a whopping 150.000 euro. The bidding ended on the Internet and Guy Belooussoff was the one winning the battle for Herin Stables. Lots of other horses passed the 50.000 euro mark including Jarjar Binks Troteval (Ogiron des Champs) who auctioned for 90.000 euro, Chanel GPH (Nixon van t Meulenhof), Jaipur Seben (Untouchable 27) and many more. 

Exports represent 41% of the total figure and went to the USA, Switzerland, Belgium, France, Spain and Morocco.
