Today, the first edition of the Eye of the Breeder auction was organized. While the young and ridden horses will go under the digital hammer tomorrow, today the breeding stallion Comme d'Api vd Hacienda (by Cumano), a lot of foals and some embryos were auctioned.
Eye Catcher d'Augustijn, a son of Emerald out of Gaga E d'Augustijn, the mare on which Jordy van Massenhove jumps at the highest level, will make the crossing to America.
Comme d'Api, who jumped at the highest level under the saddle of Germany's world number 1 Daniel Deusser, changes hands for 52,000 euros. The stallion will now focus entirely on breeding and will move to the Netherlands for this purpose.
For an embryo of Chacco-Blue out of Carthina Z (by Carthago Z) no less than 52,000 euro was paid. This embryo will face its future in France.
" We are already very happy with the success of the first part of our auction. Again we sold to various countries such as France, the Netherlands, Hungary, USA, Ireland, Sweden, Germany and Norway," says the organization. "We are looking forward to tomorrow when the young and ridden horses will go under the digital hammer", they conclude.
