The dark bay 3-year old mare Fasine (by Furst Romancier x Sir Donnerhall x Don Schufro) was named champion of the 2012 Oldenburg Elite Mare Show in Rastede, Germany, on 20 July 2012. The title for best show jumping mare went to Con Leche (by Check In x Contendro).
Bred by Paul Schockemöhle, Fasine is the full sister to the 2011 Oldenburg Licensing Champion For Romance, which sold for 750,000 euro at the stallion auction. Fasine is an embryotransfer foal and one of several eggs flushed out of dam Gesina back in 2008. She was placed first in the Brilliant Ring, the champion's ring with the 15 best mare out of 55 mares competing in Rastede that day.
"Fasine is a gorgeous type, has a correct conformation and outstanding basic gaits. Her expression is unbeatable," said Oldenburg breeding director Dr. Wolfgang Schulze-Schleppinghoff.
Paul Wendeln's mare Cindy (by Sir Donnerhall I x Furst Heinrich x Rubinstein) was proclaimed reserve champion, while Holly Simensen's Emperadora (by Sir Donnerhall x Feiner Stern x Figaro) became the bronze medallist.
Danish Lone Boegh Henriksen, who co-owns the Bundeschampion stallion Furstenball, saw her mare Furstin Weihe (by Furst Romancier) place fourth. The mare is an embryotransfer foal out of Weihegold (by Don Schufro x Sandro Hit), a former Rastede Elite Mare Champion. Weihegold's other 3-year old embryotransfer foal Weihcera (by Zack) finished fifth. This mare is still owned by Weihegold's owner Christine Arns-Krogmann.
