Gatoucha van 't Roosakker Gatoucha van 't Roosakker

The first part of Luc Henry's Stud Hero Total & Unique Auction has been a success, as the 14-year-old Gatoucha van 't Roosakker (Diamant de Sémilly x Darco) sold for an incredible 570,000 Euro – a record sum for a breeding mare according to the organisers.

Gattoucha van ’t Roosakker is the sister of Electra van ’t Roosakker and aunt of Kaprice van ’t Roosakker, and her grand-dam is the famous Usha van ’t Roosakker.

A statement from the organisers about the sale reads: “Then it is the turn of the incredible mare, Gatoucha van't Roosakker (Diamant de Sémilly x Darco), who made us live so many emotions in one week: found hurt in her box and quickly taken care of by the team of the veterinary clinic in Verona where she was successfully operated on, she never stopped showing positive signs of recovery. The total transparency observed about her state of health has undoubtedly reassured potential buyers, who have had a good fight between Ireland and the Czech Republic. Despite a Belgian attempt at the last moment, it was finally a Czech consortium that acquired the flagship mare of this sale, for a record sum of 570,000 euros!”
