As the spring foaling season is in full swing, it automatically means that the foal shows in Germany have started. The first qualifier for the 2012 German Foal Championships took place at Hannes Baumgart's stable Schwartze Hof in Verden on 30 May 2012.
Five fillies and three colts were placed at this show. The winner in the filly division was Jochen Dittmer's 20-day old filly by Benidetto out of a Don Cavallo dam. She outranked Siegfried Pliz' Sir Donnerhall x Rotspon foal, while Stefan Blanken's Foundation x Lancier was third.
In the colt category Johann Martens' Romanov x Wolkentanz I bested the fials, while Lale Eimermacher's Royal Classic x Don Frederico became the runner-up.
The next foal show is on 5 June 2012 at Gestüt Elstertal in Moritzburg, Germany.
