Jacques Verkerk, Selection Committee Chairman: “We’ve put together an interesting and varied collection, selected from more than 500 foals. We have the same number of jumper foals and dressage foals, and we’re sure to hear a lot about them in the future in both disciplines. After all, we look for talent. The collection will undoubtedly meet the expectations buyers have of us: the best foals with outstanding pedigrees, lots of relationships to top horses, and several selected at the beginning of the inspection season for the National Foal Inspection. The total picture has to be right, and that’s certainly the case with this collection.”
