Hanoverian «Sullivan» top-priced horse (VIDEO)

The collection of the Hanoverian May Auction featured 91 riding horses. Sullivan became best-priced horse, sold at Euro 34,000. Customers paid averagely Euro 11,796.70 for the futurity prospects. 33 horses were sold abroad.

Weltmeyer-genes on the maternal side of the pedigree are always a guarantee for success in the Verden auction ring. And this fact proved was once again confirmed at the May Auction: Sullivan by Soliman de Hus/Weltmeyer (breeder: breeders alliance Rosita and Hans-H. Bley, Hude – exhibitor: Alfred Engelmann, Hoyerhagen) was sold at Euro 34,000 to Hessen after an exciting bidding duel. The licensed stallions Coal Diamond by Christ and the successfully competing Burlington FRH with Charlott-Maria Schürmann descend also from the dam line of Idira. Fels was another high-priced Hanoverian youngster. The bay stallion by Fürstenreich/Rotspon (breeder: Alfred Reimann, Oer-Erkenschwick – exhibitor: Otto Rudolf Fuchs, Meinerzhagen) was the no. 1 of the collection and changed to the Netherlands at Euro 28,000.

Progeny by the Celle state stud stallion Perigueux are always very popular in Verden. Periqueen E.H. by Perigueux/Silvio (breeder and exhibitor: Eberhard Höhn, Balingen) already confirmed her jumping skills with victories and placements achieved in jumper riding horse classes. A committed regular customer from Great Britain purchased the five-year-old mare at Euro 28,000. Another Perigueux-youngster was in the focus of customers’ interest: Euro 26,000 was the price Belgian customers invested in the four-year-old Polo by Perigueux/Calypso II (breeder: Georg Müller, Heeslingen – exhibitor: Hermann Schultheiss, Balingen). Auction manager Jörg-Wilhelm Wegener concluded: “The offspring by Perigueux have many fans in Verden, this is also confirmed by the auction result. And I am particularly happy as we have been able to meet the huge demand from foreign customers.”

58 futurity prospects will stay in Germany, 33 will leave Germany. The US and the Netherlands lead the statistics with each six purchases, followed by Switzerland and Great Britain with each four horses.

Next auction highlight in Verden will be the Hanoverian Summer Auction on July 19, 2014.
