The 5-year old Dutch warmblood bred Instagram PF became the top selling horse of the 2018 Brightwells Spring Elite Dressage Collection Sale held during the Premier league national dressage show in Addington, Great Britain, on 12 May 2018.
The gelding Instagram PF (by Lord Leatherdale x Goodwill) sold for 31,000£ to Kirstie Mayne for a client.
The second most expensive horse was the 5-year old Dutch mare Izaloe (by Jazz x Rhodium) who fetched an auction price of 28,000£. Alex and her mother Sally Hardwick purchased this horse.
The Hardwicks purchased three horses at this auction. They also got the 3-year old Dimaggio Hit (by Dimaggio x Sandro Hit) for 11,500£ and the 6-year old German bred mare Batista (by Bretton Woods x De Niro), who initially did not meet the reserve but then sold privately to them for 18,000£.
Two horses actually got bids of £40,000 but did not sell as they did not meet the reserve: 6-year-old Herbie (by Westenwind) and the stallion King-Diamond (by Desperado).
The average price for a young sport horse at this auction was 17,833£.
