Price list stallion sale dressage stallions

Münster: 37 stallions were up for sale at the Westphalian Stallion Sale this evening. 25 of these had previously received a positive licensing approval. Among them were the two 1st reserve champions as well as both 2nd reserve champions. The son of Total McLaren/Florenciano with the head number 44 trotted to the phenomenal top price with great performances over both days. The black stallion was worth 700,000 Euros to the Schönweide Stud.

Following the first two licensing days at the Westphalian Horse Center, the Westphalian Stallion Sale for dressage stallions took place. After the licensing decisions had been made, 25 licensed and 12 non licensed stallions were up for sale in the OnLive auction. Among the licensed stallions offered for sale were the first and second reserve winners as well as five premium stallions.

The first reserve winner with the head number 44 caused particular excitement. The son of Total McLaren/Florenciano (breeder: Heinz u. Elisabeth Schulte, Ahaus) convinced the licensing committee at the hands of his exhibitor Stefan Holtwiesche, Gescher, with his sporty appearance and powerful canter. Customers fought an extremely exciting bidding duel in the auction hall and on the phone. It was exciting right to the end. The Gasser family secured the beautiful black stallion at the top price of 700,000 euros. He will now begin his career as a sire at the beautiful Schönweide stud farm.

The second most expensive stallion of the evening will remain in the direct neighborhood of the Westphalian Studbook. The son of Confess Color (breeder: ZG Dr. Nordhausen and Rayber, Suhlendorf; exhibitor: Blue Moon Sporthorses, Kissenbrück) was worth 310,000 euros to the North Rhine-Westphalian state stud in Warendorf. Only shortly before, the bay stallion bred out of a dam by Sir Donnerhall/Rubin-Royal had been named 2nd Reserve Champion of this licensing by the Westphalian licensing commission. He descents from a highly successful dam line. Don Schufro, the bronze medal winner of the 2008 Olympic Games in Hong Kong with the Danish team, is also a representative of this line.

The son of Secret/Christ (breeder: Dirk Hoffmann, Wolfsburg; exhibitor: Heinrich Kühlmann, Rietberg) with the head number 36 also broke the 300,000 euro mark. The impressive chestnut stallion caused a sensation during the licensing days and, together with the top priced horse, became the 1st reserve champion of this licensing. He descents from the dam line of Weltissimo, who was successful at Grand Prix level with Hubertus Schmidt. Thomas Münch hit the auction hammer for the round sum of 300,000 euros. The young stallion with strong movements will move into his stable at the Schockemöhle station in Mühlen.

Of the twelve non licensed stallions offered for sale, head number 17 led the price structure. The beautiful dark bay convinced the audience with his typey appearance. After an exciting bidding duel, the For Romance/Scolari son (breeder and exhibitor: Christoph Delsmann, Nordkirchen) was knocked down to Poland for 60,500 euro.

A total of 17 of the licensed young sires on offer changed hands that evening at an average price of 142,647 euros. Of the non licensed stallions, 83 percent were successfully sold at an average price of 25,200 euros. The Westphalian Studbook realized a total turnover of 2,677,00 Euros with the stallion sale for dressage stallions. A total of 14 of the stallions sold will be based outside of Germany in the future.
