Second online auction a roaring success
Second online auction a roaring success The first Helgstrand-Schockemöhle online auction was held with great success and after some very promising foal inspections in both Denmark, Germany and the Netherlands, the expectations for the second auction were obviously very high.
Actually, the auction foals were to come online on July 10th at 9:00 am, but due to some technical challenges, people had to be patient. And judging by the visitor history on horse24.com, people had been waiting in excitement, because when the foals finally came online later that day, the visitor numbers increased drastically in no time.
The collection contained 25 foals deriving from the strongest performance lines in the world, including 7 jumpers and 18 dressage foals. The new auction concept was adjusted a bit as the bids were first allowed on Friday, July 17th at 9:00 am, and already from the start, people began to bid. Quickly, some favourites were found among the many buyers who nearly represented the entire world. 24 hours before the end of the auction, Netstutteriet's Fascination by Franklin/Zack (bred by Bo Brink) was at the top, followed by Hesselbjerg’s Zenzation Spring by Springbank II VH/Zack (bred by Majbritt Junker) and with Skovdal’s Jake by Janeiro Platinum/Romanov (bred by Bjarne Skovdal) coming 3rd.
Danish bred foals in the lead – offspring by Franklin price highlight
There was no doubt about the auction's favourite - the expressive and extremely well-moving filly by Franklin, who with Zack as damsire testifies to an extremely strong performance line. The Danish-bred foal, Netstutteriet’s Fascination, was sold for no less than 60,000 euro to Germany. Franklin has at several auctions delivered the most expensive sold foal and his offspring turn out to be promising riding horses just as he himself achieving numerous victories at small tour level with Betina Jæger. The dam Netstutteriet's Nafea Fa Ipoipo is the full sister of Straight Horse Ascenzione, which participated in the prestigious World Breeding Championships for Young Horses with Helen Langehanenberg.
The second most expensive was Hesselbjerg's Zenzation Spring by the Swedish championship winner and Champion Stallion in Danish Warmblood, Springbank II VH with Zack as damsire. The hammer price was as much as 42,000 euros and the expressive and exceptionally well-moving colt remained in Danish hands.
Third most expensive was Danse De La Vie by the two-times World Champion D’avie and with Bretton Woods as damsire. With three impressive gaits and a superb expression, here is perhaps a possible future stallion or at least a promising dressage horse with a top pedigree. Danse De La Vie is bred by De Kempenhoeve Bvba in Belgium and was sold to Denmark for 30,000 euro.

- I am very pleased with the result of the second auction and especially the high average price of 18.300 euro. In addition, I am pleased with the fact that the news about the auction has reached a wide number of people and that we saw buyers from all over the world. Thus, we reach a much wider audience with the online auction than if it was a physical auction, says auction manager Esben Møller.
