It’s an « Explosion W » of Top Prices for the Ekestrian Elite auction of embryos!

04 November 2019

Several fierce battles took place on the Ekestrian platform that had been revamped for the occasion: www.ekestrian.com/en !

With 73% of the lots sold abroad, an average price of almost € 20,000 (sales fees included) for embryos and a general average price of € 16,700 (sf. incl), Ekestrian had a great autumn auction and is delighted for its partner breeders and clients.

There were indeed late bids on Wednesday night... the frozen embryo For Pleasure x Diamant de Sémilly with Emerald's full sister goes to Russia for € 18,000 (sf. incl). The foal to be born, Chacco Blue x For Pleasure with a mother ranked in CSI3 * 1m45 is awarded to another Russian client for over € 21,000 (sf. incl) and the good 3 year old jumping mare by Contendro x Baloubet du Rouet on the mareline of Ubiana d’Albain closed after 10pm at price of more than € 12,500 (sf. incl).

The top price, a very promising embryo by Cornet Obolensky out of a daughter of Usha Van't Roosakker, Goya, was sold for more than € 29,000 (sf. incl) and takes the direction of a top breeder in Italy!

The exception was at the rendezvous as buyers were able to fight on the exceptional frozen embryos of the auction: ¾ brother of Explosion W with Chacco Blue, vice European champion in Rotterdam with Ben Maher, adjudicated for € 22,000 (sf. Incl) goes to a very lucky breeder in Ireland, and also the unique brother / sister of Ilex VP, by Marcus Ehning’s star stallion, Comme il Faut, was sold for more than € 18,000 (sf. incl) to Spain.

Exceptional raid for the Stud Manciais where the two broodmares, one of the line of the famous Tarioso Manciais performing in CSI5 * with Katie Dinan and Pius Schwizer and Staloubet Manciais performing in 1m60 were both sold during the first day of auction!

Other very good prices were realized for the other incredible lots awarded during this auction.
