Saturday evening Corbolensky 111 de Bitho Z was crowned the absolute auction topper of Foal Auction 111 during the Kraal International in Zandhoven. This son of Cornet Obolensky out of Elastique 111 Z, by Emerald, was purchased for € 28,000 by the combination Christiaansen/Offel from Belgium/Germany. El Barone 111 Z and Marschal Fields 111 were good for the second highest amount, because El Peppa was sold for € 19,000. Moreover, that was not the only foal of El Barone 111 Z that Mr Manero Enrico takes to Italy. He also bid € 18,000 for Tequila van't Molenveld (sd: Aerobic).
Callgirl STS Z (Conthargos x Quattro B) was sold for € 18,000 too, as well as Thea de Libersart (Cornet Obolensky x I´m Special de Muze), who leaves for Ireland to Dennis Lynch’s stables. The embryo of Chacco-Blue out of the damline of Pieter Devos’ Candy changes owners for € 17,000 and was bought by the duo Patrick de Boeck (Flandria Rent) and Peter Bollen (Cavalor).
Foal Auction 111 could count on a lot of foreign interest. Foals were, for example, sold to Ukraine, Sweden, Germany, USA, France, the Netherlands, UK, Ireland, Spain, Canada and Mexico. The brothers Victor and Harrie Theeuwes look back with great satisfaction at their auction, which already had its fifth edition. “It was a great auction, with good foals and, above all, realistic prices, which keeps things interesting for buyers. Out of the 37 foals offered, 32 were sold! As an extra service for our sellers, we will do our best to arrange a sale after all”, Harrie says. “Interested parties can still contact us.”
Tresor de Brandegem (Malito de Reve x Pommeau du Heup) was slightly injured during transportation and couldn’t participate at the auction. Also Ti Amo Zoetendaele Z (Marschal Fields 111 x Marius Claudius), Chablis Zoetendaele Z (Casall ASK x Chambertin), Talbot de Brandegem (Chacco-Blue x Ready Boy des Forets), Ceyda Cera R Z (Cicero Z van Paemel x Balou du Rouet) and the embryo of Untouchable out of Taltina Z are still looking for a new owner.
