A select group of foals will be auctioned by Frederik De Backer. In addition to quality and performance genes, the selection committee has paid particular attention to correctness. This makes sure it’s safe to buy a foal without having to take a very close look. One of the original objectives of Starsale Auctions is to promote sales in the northern of the Netherlands, and after this auction has also selected foals from the rest of our country for a number of years, the 2020 collection foals are entirely bred in the north. “In that way we went back to the roots, and I think it has given us a very interesting collection of foals”, says Marcel de Boer on behave of the selection committee.
