Elite Foal Auction
During this year’s Breeders Trophy, SWB’s popular and well-visited Elite Foal Auction returns. Over the years, the arrangements have been refined and developed into a successful and internationally viable auction that attracts both a large audience at Flyinge and also buyers from all corners of the world. The average price has been high and many are the future diamonds that has been sold during the auction over the years and have since shown their forefathers on young horse tests and in comptetition. Last year, Belgian Frederik de Backer took over as auctioneer and he will also return to this year’s auction.
In mid-August, SWB’s selection team Anderas Jönsson and Johan Ifverson will once again get out on the roads to select a high-ranking palette of top quality jumping- and dressage foals that will then be sold in October. With them, they have a photographer and film team and as soon as the foal collection is presented, the foals will be marketed with photos and films in a variety of channels, both in Sweden and internationally.
The Elite Foal auction will be held in the evening on Friday October 5. All foals are pre-shown earlier in the day.
Exact dates and locations for selection will be published shortly.
