Bologna, April 18, 2021 – At the Verden auction online, 105 bids were placed until the son of Secret/Don Crusador, Sympatico (breeder: Dr. Elke Standeker, Stübing/AUT, exhibitor: Carsten Johansen, Bastad/SWE), found a new owner in Hesse for 105,000 Euros.

From the first day on, the black three-year-old out of the dam line of Anitschke was the most popular horse in the collection and impressed at each of his presentations with auction rider Heiko Klausing.

He is accompanied on his journey by Totilas Erbin by Top Gear/Benetton Dream (breeder and exhibitor: Harald Wildhagen, Wennigsen), who found her way to the same stable for 75,000 Euros. The gorgeous liver chestnut mare was presented by Jacob Schenk during the auction time.

On the showjumping side…

Chumany by Cornets Iberio/Stanley (breeder: Antonius Schulze-Averdiek, Rosendahl, exhibitor: Schulze-Averdiek Sportpferde, Rosendahl) flew to top price of the jumping horses. The five-year old, ridden by Roman Duchac, is at the beginning of a promising career and was sold for 65,500 Euros to a customer from Lower Saxony, who has already successfully brought numerous young horses into international sport.

Three other horses cleared the 50,000 Euro hurdle. Two of them were masterfully presented by rider Heiko Klausing. Sir Arthur Carrus by San Amour/Davignon II (breeder and exhibitor: Helena and Jukka Niiranen MTY, Ypäjä/FIN) found a new owner in France for 73,500 Euros.

Fantastica by For Romance/Franziskus (breeder: Berthold Schoemaker, Emlichheim, exhibitor: Gisela Kappelhoff, Beckum) was sold to Austria for 56,000 Euros. In Austria, Baronderry by Baron/Londonderry (breeder and exhibitor: Jan Crome-Sperling, Lutter a. Bbg.) will also be trained further. The knock down price for the chestnut, masterfully ridden by Sascha Böhnke, was 67,500 Euros.

Buyers from all over Europe and North America appreciated the high-class offer. 36 horses will stay in Germany, 31 have a further journey ahead of them.

The average price of 25,634 Euros meant an increase of over 3,000 Euros compared to the previous year. The largest contingent was bought by customers from the USA (eight horses) followed by France and Spain (four horses each).
