Celebrating with a summer party, Oldenburger hosted their 7th Special Edition auction comprising sport horses and elite foals that were in hot demand with customers from around the globe. The collection included sporty stars from outstanding dam lines that have been maintained by pioneering Oldenburg stables. The reward: €15,000 average price for foals.
The price highlight was reserved for a future star of New Zealand, the elite foal Fynn the Great (Fynch Hatton x Florenz x Bordeaux), who will travel down under for €47,000. Bred by Andreas Kamphaus from Lohne, this strong-moving stallion prospect’s granddam Raskya has already sired three elite auction foals in Vechta – Florieux and Floribeaux, both by Florenz, as well as Viteaux by Vitalis – and is the sister of the Intermediaire I-winning Salisbury Hill (Serano Gold with Catharina Brüser).
The OS stallion Chesterfield (Chacoon Blue x Cascadello I x Heraldik xx, bred by Günther Fielmann, Schierensee) also achieved a price highlight for jumping foals. For €23,500, a German showjumping stable secured this youngster from a family that is used to success. Dam Festel was the 2016 champion mare in Holstein and is sister to the 1m40 successful Viktoria (Cristo with Gerd Geyer), and the CCI4* Olympian Vitali (Contender) under the saddle of New Zealand’s Tim Price. Also from the 3317 line, the licensed Dominator Z, successful at 1m60 with Christian Ahlmann.
In total, 34 foals were sold at auction generating a total turnover of €573,500, with an average levelling off at €15,000. Sixteen of these future young stars will be moving abroad to bring joy to their owners in Sweden (three), Belgium (two), Austria (two), Colombia (two), the USA (two), and one each to Denmark, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Spain, and Hungary...
