1.60 always scores
Yesterday the HorseDeals online auction ended. As always, the March Deals collection included frozen straws from a large number of top-performing stallions, as well as some embryos from exceptional 1.60 combinations... and performance genes always sell!
There was a lot of interest in the frozen embryo of Heartbreaker out of Candy, the Nabab de Reve-daughter who was a multiple GP-winner under Pieter Devos. The embryo goes to France.
An already implanted embryo from the combination Scuderia 1918 Tobago Z x Andrea (Marome NW) was available. Andrea competed at 1.60m level under Gert Jan Bruggink; her foal will be born in Belgium. The expected foal of Chacfly out of Prima Donna van 't Roosakker will go to Ireland. This embryo fetched the top price of €16.000.
There was a lot of international interest for the straws with several new customers from Germany, Poland and Russia. New in the offer was Nixon van het Meulenhof whose straw went up to a price of € 2025; Uricas vd Kattevennen was also in great demand and was sold at € 1625. At the dressage stallions it was Total US again that was in high demand and the highest bid of 2425 Euros came from Germany. After the original straw of Chacco Blue for 30.000 Euro, the top prices were for Conthargos (4800), For Pleasure (3625) and Kashmir van Schuttershof (3550).
