Double success for Ekestrian for the December auction and audience record!
For the first time, two catalogs were available on the new Ekestrian platform: www.ekestrian.com.
The Ekestrian house makes good sales at the end of the year with more than half of the lots going abroad.
On the side of the auction without reserve prices dedicated to embryos, foals and broodmares, several bidders from France, the Netherlands and Italy disputed the embryo of Kannan x Hera van't Roosakker. It was finally France who won, for more than 14,900€ (including sales fees).
The broodmare God Saves The Rêve, sister of two 1.60m performers and in foal to the European Champion Quel Homme de Hus, was awarded to another customer from the Netherlands at more than 13,000 € (inc sf). Falanda EB, sister of Grand Prix winner VDL Groep Zidane, in foal to the rare Apardi, full brother of Bacardi VDL, got auctioned over 13,000€ (incl. sf)
Emerald will be well represented in Italy! Indeed, the embryo Emerald x Floortje van Overis, with a dam who won in CSIYH 1.35m-1.40m and daughter of HH Ciske van Overis who ranked in Grand Prix CSI5* 1.60m with Edwina Tops-Alexander, was awarded for 14,900 € HT (incl. sf), as well as the filly Emerald x Foudre de Hus, with a mother sister of Lamm de Fetan winner of the Nations Cup CSIO5* of Aachen, was auctioned over 12,000€ (incl. sf).
On the side of rare straws, the Top Price will remain in France, and this is the legendary Quick Star, whose batch of 2 straws, was awarded more than 4,000€ (incl. sf).
The three straws of Chacco Blue, for a specific OPU/ICSI method use only, have found buyers at varying prices from 2,500 € to 3,200 € (incl. sf).
The rising star of Penelope Leprévost and finalist of the European Championships, Vancouver de Lanlore, elected Horse of the Year 2019 a few days ago, is not left behind, with two lots of 4 straws sold the same evening , with one adjudicated for 1,200 € HT (incl. sf). Nice operation for these buyers, who get this rare semen, which, as a reminder, will not be collected in 2020 because of the Olympic year!
Other very good prices were made for the exceptional lots awarded during these sales.
The Ekestrian team would like to thank all the breeders and customers for their trust and best wishes for the end of the year.
