The alluring Nikson W (Ebony x Blue Hors Zatchmo) realized 28.000 euro and stays in the Netherlands. The most expensive filly was the well-bred Nescafay Texel, a daughter of Ferdinand out of Jazz. She was sold for 17.000 euro.
Noran (Geniaal x Apache) leaves for Thailand, the happy buyers will focus on the sport. Bearing the future in mind, a Canadian rider also bought two foals, amongst them was Neomal van Kairos (Bordeaux x Cabochon). For 17.000 euro, Nash Sollenburg (Foundation x Vivaldi) moves to Dubai. The outstanding mover Nickelson (Vivaldi x Charmeur) relocates to dressage stable in Germany for 12.000 euro.
