The 3-year old licensed and performance tested breeding stallion Saltimbanco produced the highest price at the 2004 Autumn Elite Auction in Munster, Germany. Selling for 160,000 euro to The Netherlands, Saltimbanco is yet another Sandro Hit offspring moving to the "lower country" to introduce new German blood to the Dutch breeders.

Saltimbanco (Sandro Hit x Werther) was bred by Jochen Brinkmann from Emsdetten and presented by Wilhelm Otte and Jörg Habenicht from Castrop-Reuxel.

The second highest knock down price was also achieved by a Sandro Hit offspring. Samt und Seide, a three year old dark bay mare by Sandro Hit x Donnerhall, was presented by Mathieu Beckmann from Wettringen and sold for 95,000 euro. The 3-year old bay stallion Leo Minor (Lexus x Fruhlingsrausch) was good for 88,000 euro.

Best selling dressage pony was the Bundeschampionate participant Doubtless, a 3-year old grey stallion by FS Don't Worry x Niklas. For 30,000 euro, this pony has been sold to a new owner.
