The first auction evening of the Zangersheide Quality Auction during the FEI WBFSH Jumping World Breeding Championship for Young Horses was a great success.
Three lots stood out head and shoulders above the other well-sold foals, which together had an average price of 34,166 euros. The highest knock-down price was for History JT Z, a superb colt by Heartbreaker out of a Carthago Z mare. The full brother of Olympic stallion Hardrock Z sold for 86,000 euro to South Africa.
The other best sold foals leave for Germany and the United Kingdom. Brillante di Villagna Z (by Balou de Reventon x Carthago Z), a half-brother of Emerald, had a hammer price of 76,000 euros. And the son of Daniel Bluman's Olympic mare Sancha LS, Cosa Nostra SA Z (by Chacco Blue x Chin Chin) was sold for 74 000 euros.
With these top prices the average price of the colts came to 37,545 euro and the fillies were good for an average of 28,857 euro. The lots sold tonight have found new owners from all over the world. As far away as the United States of America and closer to home with four foals staying in Belgium and others leaving for the Netherlands, France, Italy, Hungary, Norway, Denmark and Poland.
