Trigon Auctions matches foals with clients, closing the season in style
Last Wednesday Trigon Auctions closed its final foal auction of the year. The team around Stal Tops, VDL Stud and Frederik De Backer presented 17 foals in the September edition, with buyers from around the global securing 13 foals.
“Our goal is to present quality foals to our clients” — Janko van de Lageweg
Janko van de Lageweg: “Our goal is to present quality foals to our clients, not the other way around. The clearance rate is important to us as we serve breeder and buyer and we want to make the right match. We’ve really succeeded in that in the very competitive market of today. So it’s a big thanks and congratulations to all buyers and breeders.”
“The succesrate in sales of our auction is unseen” — Stal Tops
Stal Tops: “We can only stand by Janko’s words. We receive a very specific demand from existing clients that all partners have acquired over our careers and with the medium of online auctions a new group of clients have entered our circle. Some are very outspoken about their desires and wishes, others are very silent and bid at the very last seconds. But they know the can expect to buy a correct, selected and vetted foal. The succesrate in sales of our auction is unseen and reflects the right selection and the attention we have for our clients.”
“The foal season may have come to an end but Trigon Auctions continues” — Frederik De Backer
Frederik De Backer: “The season has been very intense with many events outside the auction but the team has brought together a strong group of foals that was well-appreciated by our buyers. The future now brings a series of auctions for 3 year old horses that we have selected over the last few months so the foal season may have come to an end — but Trigon Auctions continues.”
