A very lucrative four-star CSI in Schleswig-Holstein – a chance not only the world’s top elite jumping riders won’t miss, but also where some of the most interesting representatives of the 2022 Holsteiner foal crop are to be put to auction. We are talking about the CSI Hof Waterkant, at Janne Friederike Meyer-Zimmermann and her husband Christoph’s place, where a high-class collection is to be auctioned on Friday, 5 August.
And this is really something. The pedigrees contain not only much sought-after sires like Emerald van het Ruytershof, Dominator Z, Clarimo or Cornet Obolensky but also the mare families are top of the range with regard to own and relative performance. Lot no 10 for example, a colt foal called Exklusive, is by Emerald out of a Quidam de Revel-Corrado I dam. The produce of his second dam also includes Cees by Cesano II (Philip Koch/GER), Quadros by Quidam de Revel (Wim Janssen/NED) and Crack up Christian (Lars Kesten/NED), all of them successful up to 1.60m level. And what’s more, her direct dam line has also produced VDL Cardento by Capitol I (Peter Eriksson/SWE), second in the Athens Olympics, as well as VDL Cartello by Cartani, who is currently dominating the international show grounds with Darragh Kenny (IRL). Le Blue Diamond van’t Ruytershof, successfully shown in the Global Tour by Olivier Philippaerts (BEL) sends lot No 11, a filly out of a Connor dam, who has already produced the licensed stallion Heat by Halifax van het Kluizebos and is directly related to 1.60m show jumper Lacrimoso by Landjunge. Younger sires like Crack by Cornet Obolensky and Chinchero by Chopin VA are also being represented by progeny. A colt by Chinchero, lot no 6, called Chin Derby, for example is out of the same dam as Cassandra Orschel’s Derby winner, Dacara E.
The auction on Friday, 5 August, is expected begin at 9.00pm, following a 1.50m class and followed by the summer party. The horse show for the entire family with kids’ entertainment area, shopping mile and live music provides a worthy background for the 14 Holsteiner auction foals.
