SWB Elite Auction
This year’s Breeders Trophy gets a dressage and a jumping week and SWB’s successful Elit Auction will be held during both weeks. Breeders Trophy and Saab International Grand Prix Dressage will come to Flyinge during week 39 and together with dressage at top level, exciting young horse finals and Charlotte Dujardin’s test ride, the Elite Auction for dressage foals and young dressage talents will be one of the week’s major highlights on Friday 27 September.
Week 40, the Breeders Trophy in jumping starts and new for this year is that the week is also supplemented with open national jumping classes. This as a part of creating an evem more attractive competition for riders and breeders and thus also attracting a larger audience. After a day of nerve-piercing jumping finals, the SWB Elite Auction is held for jumping foals and promising young horses during Saturday evening on October 5. New for this year is that the jumping auction is arranged in association with Swedish Selected Horse Sales.
The SWB Elite Foal Auction was in 2018, as in previous years, well-attended and in addition to the 250 VIP guests in the Big Arena att Flyinge, the stands were well-stocked and the interest to follow the auction via web TV big. A number of equestrian profiles and well-known riders were seen both bid and buy and foals were sold to buyers in Sweden and also in Switzerland and Ireland. The experienced belgian Frederik de Backer was excellent and exemplary fast as auctioneer and Karl-Henrik Heimdahl on his side delivered everything you needed to know about the foals and a little bit more.
When we summarize this year’s Elite Foal Auction we can see that folals and embryos were sold for a total of 419 500 Euro during the evening. Of the 44 on the list, 41 foals and one embryo were sold, divided into 19 jump and 20 dressage foals, and the average price finally landed at 10 738 Euro. Prelude CML (Franklin – Don Primero) became the most expensive foal of the evening and was sold after a intense bidding for 30 000 Euro. The best paid jumping foal was Main Menu (Cornet Obolensky – Nintender), who was sold for 26000 Euro.
