KWPN Select Sale known
After three successful editions, the KWPN Select Sale has earned
a fixed place in the programme of the KWPN stallion approvals in
Den Bosch. On Saturday 7 February 23 stallions will come under auctioneer
Hans Sinnige's hammer. The group of three-year-old stallions that
have been selected for the auction are extremely interesting for
both sport and breeding. The selection committee of the KWPN Select
Sale is extremely satisfied with the quality of the stallions that,
after the first viewing, were up for offer at
the selection days. All horses have been chosen for breeding, type,
movement and free jumping. Above all, the horses have undergone
X-rays and veterinary clinical examinations.

the stallions are presented in the catalogue, which will come out
in the first week of January. Images of each stallion have been
recorded and can be seen on the presentation DVD. The quality in
general is excellent and there are a number of outstanding examples:
one of the horses that was very much admired at the first viewing
in Ermelo is U2. This son of Sunny Boy out of Fastrona 'keur preferent'
(sire Aktion) is owned by Gerrit en Leontien ter Hamsel of Enter.
UB40 too (Olivi x Michelangelo) of family Van Os has made a big
impression at Ermelo and at the selection days of the auction at
olivi x michelangelo
of the eye-catchers among the show jumping horses is Up to Date
(sire Stakkato). With his carefulness and unlimited power this chestnut
stallion can look forward to a career as an international show jumper.

Tull en 't Waal. Heartbreaker has two offspring in the auction:
Wil Schellekens's USA Today (dam's sire Capitol I) and Unique le
Sursaut (dam's sire Oula Owl xx) of Stal le Sursaut of Heerle. Unique
le Sursaut is a full brother of the
licensed stallion Sibon W who in 2002 was sold at the KWPN Select
Sale. The successful combination of the 'preferent' stallions Voltaire
and Nimmerdor bring to this auction Umberto,extremely complete show

jumpers Kannan and Gyltaire.
