Holstein Elite Foal Auction: Collection with World Champion relatives

The World Championships in Herning ended only a few days ago, and the Holstein Elite Foal Auction on August 20th is waiting in the wings. 74 highly interesting young talents have found their way into the collection, among them candidates with World Champion bloodlines.

In the collection of show jumping foals, customers have the choice between foals that have prominent and proven stallions for sires and foals that are descended from sires that are still at the beginning of their breeding careers. There are offspring of Clarimo, Casall, Diarado, Tangelo van de Zuuthoeve, Mylord Carthago, Cornet Obolensky and Vingino as well as foals of United Way, Crack, Forlee, Keaton, Chinchero, For Treasure or the former Holstein Champion Stallion Vigado. This Vigado colt (catalogue number 40) has a Diarado-Carry-Alcatraz dam. And now it gets interesting: The Alcatraz mare is the granddam of the newly crowned Vice World Champion Quel Homme de Hus (Jerome Guery/BEL). Another interesting offer is catalogue number 4, a daughter of Cascadello I-Carry from Holsteiner mare family 890. On the one hand, she is the full sister of the premium stallion Caruso Bello, who moved to Italy in 2017 via the elite auction in Neumünster and secured the bronze medal at the Young Horse Championships there last year, and on the other hand, this auction foal took part in the State Foal Championships in Bad Segeberg last Sunday with very good success. Catalogue number 62, Unbelievable by Uriko-Colman-Concerto II, comes from the 1916 line. The granddam of this stallion prospect is none other than Thomas Kleis' Derby winner Carassina, who is already the dam of the approved Uriko son United Way.

Besides Holstein's core competence - the show jumpers - there will also be a small but fine dressage lot. Well-known sires such as Vaderland, Escolar, Fidano (2) and De Chirico provide typey and strong-moving young talents for the arena.

The 74 offers will make their first public presentation on 20 August at 12:30 p.m., before the auction starts at 4 p.m. In addition, there will be an interesting and convivial social programme: The breeding district chairmen invite all guests to a champagne reception at the Elmshorn outdoor stadium at 12:00 p.m. and the stallion stable opens its gates for visitors between the presentation and the start of the auction. Afterwards the day will end with music at the cocktail bar.

You will find all information as well as the videos at www.holsteiner.auction. If you have any questions about the auction or the collection, please contact Roland Metz at +49 171 436 4651 or by e-mail rmetz@holsteiner-verband.de.
