The 93rd Fall Elite Auction shone the spotlight on vibrant riding horses from famous dam lines who were auctioned for top prices around the globe. Many Olympic stables secured purchases of potential stars from the Oldenburg Horse Center Vechta, where the average price leveled off at over €43,000.

The price peak of this 93rd Fall Elite Auction was the ultra-modern Fürstenerbe (Fürsten-Look x De Niro x Rubinstein I, bred by Heinrich Gerriets from Wilhelmshaven and exhibited by Martin Otten from Steinfeld. The beautiful black gelding was sold to Oldenburg patrons Doris and Max Matti from Switzerland for €126,000. Top dressage rider David Taylor will take his place in the saddle and be responsible for his future training. This black pearl comes from the renowned Grosse Liebe dam line, and is brother to triple European champion Der Erbe OLD (Dimaggio) under the saddle of Jana Schrödter.
The second most expensive horse was the six-year-old grey stallion Borsody (Bordeaux x Sandro Hit xDonnerschwee,) bred by Bernd Huslage Jnr, from Essen and exhibited by Friedbert Schaul from Heilbronn. This ultra-modern eye-catcher from the famous Rudilore dam line was sold to the USA for €107,000. His dam, Rudiflora, is a sister of the licensed Showdancer (Sir Donnerhall I), Intermediaire I in the hands of Lena Waldmann.
The price highlight for the showjumpers was the OS champion mare Con Sugar (Solitair x Check In x Contendro I), bred and exhibited by Franz-Rudolf Sanktjohanser from Löningen. The hammer fell at €86,500 and Con Sugar’s future will be at the Heinrichs Horses stable under the saddle of international rider Tobias Meyer. Her dam, Con Leche (the sister of Savage – 1m45 with Patrick Stühlmeyer) and granddam Con Pleasure, were also celebrated champion mares.
More than half of all the riding horses will inspire Oldenburg friends abroad in the future. These quality horses were sold to Switzerland (five), USA (three), Austria and Spain (two apiece), with one apiece going to Belgium, Great Britain, Indonesia, Italy, Mexico, and Monaco.
The average price of this excellent collection leveled off at around €43,000, with a total turnover of €1,421,000... To read the complete article you need to be a subscriber
