Where Quality Comes Together: Foal and Riding Horse Auction on 15 June

The future belongs to the young – this is the motto not only for the state championships and the Verband mare show held at the Holsteiner horse days from 13-16 June 2024 at Elmshorn, but the stage is also set for two auction sales offering foals and young riding horses. Both collections are now online on www.holsteiner.auction.

The foal auction on 15 June is a fixture on the Holsteiner calendar and the Holsteiner breeders have demonstrated their knack for the right breeding decisions yet again with promising youngsters by Million Dollar, Uriko and Zuccero or Cahil, Ermitage Kalone, Keaton and Chaccotage Blue. The auction opens with lot 1, Sakira by Cahil-Cancara, a top-quality filly: Lireu by Legolas (Niklaus Schurtenberger/SUI), Concord by Con Air (Karin Ernsting/GER) and Campbell VDL by Cassini I (Candice King/USA) are just three of her many highly successful show jumping relatives at international level. The sport icons listed in the pedigree of lot 2 read like the scene’s Who is Who: Cheppetta by Chepetto (Kevin Staut/FRA), Deleyn by Larimar (Shane Sweetnam/IRL), Quvee Prestige by Quidam de Revel (Maksymilian Wechta/POL), Calle Cool by Concerto II (Nisse Lüneburg/GER), Pikeur Dylon by Diamant de Semilly (Markus Brinkmann/GER) or Le Cordial by Lyjanero (Andrzej Oplatek/POL) and many more. 

Mount and succeed
The riding horse summer auction is coming back to Elmshorn. “After a break of several years, we have put together a small but select lot of very interesting sport horses”, auction manager Felix Flinzer is pleased to say. Seven youngsters have made it into the collection, and while all of them are ready to compete in the show jumping arena and may start collecting ribbons right away during the ongoing season, some of have been very successfully shown in competition already. Particularly impressive is lot 105, the licensed stallion Dilaro by Dinken-Casall. The stallion comes from the direct damline of Cassini and Clarimo and the sporting merits of this family are not only confirmed by numerous 1.60m level jumping horses, but six-year-old Dilaro has placed at 1.30m level himself already. The first start in competition of lot 104, Miss Dark Air by Cornet Obolensky-Diarado, saw her jump to a placing right away; moreover, her second dam’s produce includes the licensed stallions Quiwi Dream by Quidam de Revel (Hans-Dieter Dreher/GER) and Zinedream by Zinedine (David Will/GER).
