This evening November 23rd from 08.00 PM CET, the online auction of The Youngsters Auction 2021 will come to its conclusion. A highly exciting group of promising 3-year-old showjumpers will be auctioned online, after a live presentation with public allowed starting at 03.00 PM on Tuesday 23 November. The stunning talented Thunder van de Zuuthoeve daughter Tesla Z, the incredible wildcard Nou En, the flashy mare Condita, the beautiful Chacoon Blue daughter Nevera Z, Chaplin’s ¾ sister Nacaltha WS – they are just a few examples of the extraordinary collection.
Live presentation with public allowed
Due to the new Covid measures in The Netherlands, the actual auction will take place online and will close on Tuesday 23 November from 08.00PM. The live presentation however will be at Waaij Stud in Eemnes, The Netherlands and public are allowed to attend. The entrance is free and includes drinks & bites for all guests. The presentation will start at 03.00PM until 04.30PM and afterwards there will be time to have a closer look on the horses in the stables and to consult the veterinary team about the veterinary findings of all auction horses. The live presentation will also be available at ClipMyHorse.TV.
Stunning talents Nou En & Tesla Z
One of the absolute highlights of the collection is the recently added wildcard Nou En (Ibolensky x Numero Uno) – this 3.5-year-old gelding is the only horse presented under saddle and shows off incredible talent. “When you see Nou En, you would say he is a 5 or even a 6 year old; he has a fantastic balance, rideability and mindset. His jumping talent speaks for itself”, says Peter van der Waaij on behalf of The Youngsters Auction.
Another super talent is Tesla Z – a daughter of Thunder van de Zuuthoeve out of the full sister of Janika Sprungers’ CSI5* Grand Prix showjumper Aris CMS. “This mare has got all ingredients; she is light, balanced, is a true athlete and was bred out of a damline that produces talent after talent.”
¾ sister of Chaplin & more brilliant genes
Martin Fuchs and Chaplin recently added the World Cup of Lyon to their impressive record and The Youngsters Auction offers his ¾ sister: Nacaltha WS – a daughter of Verdi out of Chaplin’s half-sister. “Nacaltha WS is a typical daughter of Verdi; not the most flashy jumper, but very effective. We are thrilled to see her develop under saddle”, says Jasper van der Waaij – one of the organizers of The Youngsters Auction. Other notable auction horses are Nevera Z – a daughter of Chacoon Blue and half-sister to multiple international showjumpers, Andiamo’s Asca Z – bred out of the sister of CSI5* GP winners Sea Coast Pebbles Z and Aristo Z, Neusje WS – not the prettiest but a serious future talent, Santa Fee – a lovely daughter of Matisse de Mariposa out of the damline of Harrie Smolders’ Dolinn, Jiminez Z – a striking talent with all the scope.
Cian O’Connor & Christophe Zimmermann about The Youngsters Auction references
The 5-year-old Leicester became Norwegian champion with Ada Braaten and is now in the stables of Cian O’Connor. “Leicester is one of the most exciting young horses I have seen for many years! He literally ticks off all the boxes”, says Olympic medalist Cian O’Connor. In the 2020 edition, Christophe Zimmermann and Janne Friederike Meyer-Zimmermann successfully purchased the most popular horses in the auction: Jikke-Cara in partnership with Kent Farrington, and Magnolia WS. “I would buy these horses everyday again, no doubt! Jikke-Cara is a very modern sporthorse; really the horse you are looking for these days. Magnolia is a mare we really believe in. She jumps really good from behind, always with her body upwards and shows a lot of power from the floor”, Christophe Zimmermann tells about his purchases.
