Highlight Sales: Top foals and sports horses

On 9 July, the second edition of the Holsteiner Highlight Sales will take place in Hörup as part of the Johannsen family's Springflut Festival. 12 foals and seven riding horses of selected quality and with interesting pedigrees as well as a very special embryo by Cornet Obolensky out of the full sister to Million Dollar make up the collection that, like last year, a handful of renowned Holsteiner breeders have selected together with the marketing director of the Holsteiner Verband, Roland Metz. And the lot reads like the silverware of international show jumping breeding. On the one hand, the foals descend from internationally successful sires such as Caretino, Dominator Z, Clarimo, Diamant de Semilly or Eldorado v/d Zeshoek and on the other hand from up-and-coming young stallions such as the reigning Bundeschampion Crack, Diablue PS or Cardentos.

Most of the riding horses are four-year olds, all of them are ready for competition, but most of them have not been shown in public yet. The Diarado-Quidam de Revel-daughter Layla Sofia, who only a few weeks ago made her first promising appearance in a novice class show jumping competition, is an exception. Just like Heroika HaS, who with Baloubet du Rouet-Casall-Chin Chin in Stamm 104A is not only interesting as a broodmare, but has also already gained experience in the show jumping ring up to 1.30 metres. The seven-year-old already produced several foals in her breeder's stable before the sport. And also a licensed stallion is in the lot, he descends from the shooting star Million Dollar and has a Casall mare for a mother. The other riding horses have Million Dollar, Clarksville, Comme il Faut and Diamant de Semilly as sires.
