The third collection of the KWPN Online Foal Auction is online. In total, 37 foals, 24 jumping and 13 dressage foals are searching for a new owner. Bids can be made from Friday and bidding will close on Monday 9 September from 8 pm CET. New in this auction is that for the first time an embryo is being auctioned ! The dam is the half-sister of Explosion W (s.Chacco-Blue), the silver medalist of the European Championship in Rotterdam two weeks ago. And none other than Chacco-Blue signs also for the paternity of this foal.
Explosion W jumped the one impressive lap after another during the European Championship in Rotterdam under Ben Maher. With fantastic technique, unlimited scope and a great canter, the pair managed to secure team bronze for Great Britain. On the final day, with only a small difference with the gold medal, they won a wonderful individual silver.
Closely related to Explosion W
Explosion W’s dam, the Baloubet Du Rouet daughter Uarina, jumped under her sports name Untouchable at international 1.55m level ridden by Leon Thijssen. In addition to Explosion W, she also produced the international 1.45m horse Boncetto W (by Concetto Famos). Her daughter Zarina III (s.Heartbreaker) is the dam of the unique embryo that will now be auctioned digitally. This mare already had her son, the stallion Liamant W (by Diamond De Semilly), selected for performance testing at the KWPN Stallion Show this year and finished third in the championship ring. Later this year this stallion was approved for breeding by Zangersheide. Explosion W is very closely related to the embryo in this auction, both are by Chacco-Blue, who had no less than four offspring in the individual finals of the European Championships.
