Former auction horses from Vechta conquer the stallion market
As the most expensive young stallion in the dressage sector, the Reserve Champion by Millennium/Trak. - Rubin-Royal - De Niro - Rubinstein I, bred by Heinrich Vahle, Friesoythe, and exhibited by Albert Sprehe from Essen triumphed. The movement king is the brother of the Oldenburg Champion Stallion 2014 Morricone I and will be stationed by Dr. Axel Brockmann at the Landgestüt Celle.
The Vechta auctions are the springboard for many successful horses of the auction. So also for the following young stallions, who changed their owners for top prices: The second price peak in the dressage lot became a movement artist by For Romance I - Fidertanz - Wolkentanz II, bred by Bernhard Gerdes from Lindern, and exhibited by IVM Horse GmbH, Warendorf. This impressive stallion was discovered as a foal in Vechta and knocked down on the stallion market for 170,000 Euro to a dressage stable in Latvia. Also at the Vechta Foal Auction and now at the Oldenburger Licensing stage shined an impressive chestnut stallion by Floriscount - De Niro - Matcho AA, bred by Virginia Urbath, Hamburg, and exhibited by Clemens-August Graf von Merveldt, Vechta, who will enrich the Nordrhein-Westfälisches Landgestüt for 135,000 Euro. Further peaks of the price ranking changed hands to international jumping stables. The jumping stallions by Aganix du Seigneur Z - Hickstead - Numero Uno, bred by Hartwig Schoof, Hedwigenkoog, and exhibited by Gestüt Eichenhain GmbH, Blender, achieved 125,000 Euro, and a son of Casino Berlin - Conthargos - Silvio I, bred by Horst Schlüsselburg, Stuhr, exhibited by Johannes Westendarp, Wallenhorst, was knocked down for 100,000 Euro to the stallion stable of Johannes Heinrichs from Heinsberg in North Rhine Westphalia.
"This year's licensing lot has shown that our foal auctions offer particularly high quality. We are happy when we see former Vechta auction horses at the big Oldenburg licensing stage again. A special thanks goes to our Oldenburg breeders, who have made their rarities available for our auction. And again this year, renowned stallion stations have secured their young Oldenburg offsprings for a great future," says auctioneer Fabian Kühl.
A total of 10 out of 20 dressage stallions of the Verband der Züchter des Oldenburger Pferdes (OL) will in future enjoy Oldenburg friends abroad.
