Two fillies acquired by Austrian Olympian19-10-2019 - 06:47

HERNING, DENMARK: At the DWB World Cup Foal Auction, 17 Danish Warmblood foals were sold. Austrian Olympian Victoria Max-Theurer purchased the two most expensive foals

A collection of 21 foals – 8 jumping foals and 13 dressage foals – comprised the collection at the 2nd DWB World Cup Foal Auction in Herning which took place on Friday 18 October between 5 and 6 pm. In a crowded auction hall, 17 foals changed ownership for an average price of 9,647 EUR.


The collection of quality foals had been selected on a criteria of very successful dam lines, so that all the foals had an international profile based on strong genetics for performance which also ensured a good flow in the auction.


Most expensive fillies to same buyer


Austrian Olympian Victoria Max-Theurer is competing at the CDI show in Herning where she rides Benaglio in the World Cup Qualifier and Rockability in the CDI3* Grand Prix tour. It was her first time at a Danish foal auction and already at the presentation of the foals in the afternoon she felt quite excited about the quality.


The most sought-after foal at the auction was the very strong mover, Hesselhøj Ebay by Escolar x Hesselhøj Donkey Boy and bred by the rider couple Dorthe and Hans Jørgen Hoeck who have also bred the dam sire, the two-time medal winner from Ermelo, Hesselhøj Donkey Boy. The filly was acquired by Victoria Max-Theurer for 20,000 EUR.


– When I saw her move very energetically at the presentation prier to the auction I knew she had to be mine, Victoria Max-Theurer, said after the auction.


Already last year Gestüt Vorwerk, owned by the Max-Theurer family, purchased a very good filly out of the famous dam line of Blue Hors Zackerey, Fiontini and many other top athletes, and again at the 2019 DWB World Cup Foal Auction the breeders through 50 years, Tove and Ove Møller Nørgaard presented a high quality filly that Victoria Max-Theurer fell for. For a knock-down price of 13,000 EUR she bought the large-framed, expressive and very well-moving Overgaards Vanity by Blue Hors Veneziano x Londonderry out of a mare that is a half-sister to Blue Hors Zackerey and the dam of two licensed stallions.


– We also sold a foal to Victoria’s stable last year, and it makes us very proud when the best riders take an interest in our breeding, said Ove Møller Nørgaard, who came to congratulate Victoria Max-Theurer and her partner Stefan Lehfellner.
