Following a six-hour auction marathon, around €2.5 million found its way into the wallets of Oldenburg breeders, when Oldenburg friends from all around the world secured their Oldenburg star at the 95th Fall Elite Auction at the Oldenburg Horse Centre in Vechta.
The top price at the 95th Fall Elite Auction was achieved by the ultra-modern, three-year-old Superb (Secret x Welt Hit II x Landadel, bred by Lambertus Schnieder from Molbergen and exhibited by Stevens Sportpferde from Molbergen, Lower Saxony).
