Last years sale topper Dougie Douglas is now in the capable hands of USA rider Katie Dinan. Here’s what she had to say about her Goresbridge Supreme Sale Of Showjumpers Graduate and more to ‘World Of Showjumping’:
Katie Dinan; “Dougie Douglas has been everything we hoped for and more”
Goresbridge Supreme Sale of Showjumpers Ireland 15 November 2016
Goresbridge welcomes everyone to the third edition of the Supreme Sale of Showjumpers Ireland to be held 15 November at Barnadown Gorey Co. Wexford // Amber Springs Hotel & Spa Gorey Co. Wexford. Last year’s auction saw the Irish Sport Horse Dougie Douglas (Ard Vdl Douglas x High Roller) set a new Irish record for public auction by selling for €1.4 million and has since performed successfully with America’s Katie Dinan.
“Last year we purchased Dougie Douglas from the Goresbridge auction, and he has been everything we hoped for and more this year. I think the auction this year has a great range of both promising youngsters and already seasoned competitors. I would highly recommend the auction to those looking for a great new horse.”
Standing out this year is lot 112, one of the country’s top 6 year-olds, Killossery Kaiden that secured the gold medal for the 6-year-old horses under the saddle of Gerard O’Neill during the 2016 FEI World Breeding Jumping Championships in Lanaken. The Irish bred gelding by Lux Z x Cruising bred by F. and L. Glynn – produced the sole clear round in the jump-off.
