The 2021 KWPN Foal Champion Rosatrichta van de Westen became the best seller of the 2021 Prinsjesdag Foal auction, which held its 29 edition on 21 September 2021.
With a turnover of more than one million euro and an auction top-seller for 44,000 euro, the auction was a success.

"With such an average price and a sales percentage of more than 90 percent, we are proud to be back as an auction," says Foal Auction Prinsjesdag chairman Arjan van der Waaij. "We enjoyed this 29th edition and it was great to be able to organise a live event again. An auction with guests and a wonderful ambiance brings some extra charm for an auction like Foal Auction Prinsjesdag; this is even more motivation for the future," Van der Waaij looks back and ahead.
