A few days after he performed strongly under the saddle of Christian Ahlmann with 3 clear rounds during the two-star show in Opglabbeek, our stallion Dourkhan Hero Z has now also made himself heard through one of his offspring. During the online auction of Horse Auction Belgium that ended yesterday, the auction topper of the evening was the 3-year-old stallion D'Niro Z, a son of Dourkhan Hero Z and Exploit de Rouland who was bred by Jolien Nulens. D'Niro Z attracted a lot of national and international interest and was eventually sold to a Swiss customer for 34,000 euros.
On Monday evening there was already the Scuderia auction, in which embryos, foals and young horses were sold. The blood of one of our stallions was also present here thanks to the 2-year-old mare Dannina Ice Z, a daughter of D'Aganix 2000 Z and Crown Z who was bred by J. Saaltink and who comes from the same damline as As Cold As Ice Z (Artos Z), the former GP horse of Judy Ann Melchior. Dannina Ice Z was sold for 21,000 euros and found her new owner in Hungary.
