A Sandro Hit x Donnerhall x Classiker offspring (stallion name Sieger Hit) was proclaimed Champion of the 2007 Oldenburg Stallion Licensing in Vechta, Germany, on Saturday November 24, 2007.
The same pedigee combination (Sandro Hit x Donnerhall) also produced the licensing champion of the Hanoverian society in Verden last month.
The bay Oldenburger branded champion is bred by Georg Sieverding and sold at auction for 340,000 euro to the Danish Jens-Peter Aggesen. The champion will stand at stud at Gestut WM of Eckhard Wahlers in Reessum, Germany.
The reserve champion of the licensing was a Sir Donnerhall x Rubinstein offspring, bred by Marion Menck and owned by Paul Schockemohle's Gestut Lewitz. The third placed stallion in the premium ring was Fackeltanz, a delightful Florencio x Feinbrand x Thymian xx son owned by Sissy Max-Theurer from Austria. She purchased the colt at the Vechta Foal Auction two years ago.
The fourth ranked stallion was a Quando Quando son out of the State Premium Mare Rosemount Dunedoo (Donnerhall x Rubinstein). The liver chestnut is bred by Australian dressage team rider Kristy Oatley-Nist and owned by Gestut Lewitz. The judges placed Sternenfänger fifth. This chestnut Sir Donnerhall x Figaro x Harlekin son is also a former auction foal which sold to Sissy Max-Theurer two years ago.
Eleven stallions made it into the premium ring and 39 of the 58 presented stallion were licensed. At the auction of licensed and non licensed stallions after the licensing, four dressage stallions sold for more than 100,000 euro, the price highlight being the champion stallion.
The second most expensive horse was the black stallion by Sandro Hit x De Niro x Pik Bube, who sold for 180,000 euro to Nordrhine Westfalia. The price of 100,000 euro was paid for the bay Don Primaire x Larno x Zortin offspring (sold to The Netherlands) and for the chestnut Sir Donnerhall x Don Gregory x Picasso son (to Germany).
