By Adriana van Tilburg

The top horse from this year's Holstein Elite Riding Horse Auction in Neumünster comes from the successful breeding enterprise of the Köhncke family in Badendorf: Unikum (Uriko - Sarese x Contender, Stamm 4539) was sold by auctioneer Dr. Günther Friemel for €142,000 to an international showjumping stable in Peru. The four-year-old bay, from whose dam line the three-time derby winner Collin (Toni Hassmann) comes, will move into his stable with Alonso Valdez Prado. The latter recently rode in the saddle of another former Holsteiner auction horse – Chichester (Casall - Ulina XIV x Cosimo, Stamm 18A2, bred by Andrea Mietz) who represented the flag of his homeland at this year’s World Equestrian Games in Tryon. Unikum will accompany Universal (Untouchable - Biscaya VIII x Ibisco xx, Stamm 1859, bred by Jens Hauschildt). The three-year-old, an interesting broodmare prospect, went under the hammer for €77,000.
Cascadello I, the reserve winner of the Holsteiner licensing of 2011, sired the second most expensive horse of this year's riding horse auction. The five-year old Carlton (out of Ulme IV x Contender, Stamm 318D2, bred by SR Sportpferde) has already been jumping successfully in competitions, including victory in a Bundeschampionat qualificatier, and sold for €115,000. The owner of Cascadello I, Professor Bernd Heicke, bought the youngster, Carlton, for Hannes Ahlmann.
Another horse that cracked the €100,000 mark was Big Hope (Baloubet du Rouet - Urmel VI x Casall, Stamm 104A, bred by Hark Martensen). This four-year-old mare sold to the Ukraine for €102,000...CLICK HERE TO SUBSCRIBE TO BREEDING NEWS
