The chestnut colt Jestis La Liga became the best selling foal in the 2020 Danish Warmblood Streaming auction hosted at Blue Hors stud on 28 June 2020.
Eighteen dressage bred and four jumper bred foals were sold in this online auction that was streamed online.
The colt Jests La Liga (by Blue Hors Livius x Aljano x Akinos) sold for 37,000 euro to Blue Hors stud.
"It is an exceptional colt that we were determined to ensure at Blue Hors, so we are thrilled that we succeeded," said Blue Hors breeding director Martin Klavsen.
The second most expensive foal was the filly Sevilla Pilekaer (by Vitalis x Apache) which sold for 20,000 euro to Danish Grand Prix rider Nanna Skodborg Merrald.
Harrysmindes Kastello (by Kingston x Dancier) sold to Blue Hors stud for 18,000 euro.
The colt Worres Goldendale (by Glamourdale x Franlin) fetched 16,000 euro , while colt Grevens Fakir (by Blue Hors Farrell x Jazz) sold for 15,000 euro.
The black colt Zackolino (by Zackorado x Hotline) found a new owner for 12,000 euro, while Fauzian (by Franklin x Romanov) sold for 11,000 euro, just like Runehojs Stardust (by St. Schufro x Hotline).
"We have had a considerable number of online bids, including bids from many new bidders from many different countries. It has proven that with this concept we reach more people as the online platform provides access to a wider network of buyers. Therefore, it is not unlikely that a similar concept will be integrated into future auctions. At least we can conclude that this test run was a success," said Ulrik Kristensen, Chairman of the Danish Warmblood Auction Committee.
