The 2010 Hanoverian Stallion Licensing in Verden came to a conclusion with 46 licensed stallions and 16 premium stallions, of which ten were dressage colts. After dropping the tradition of proclaiming a licensing champion, the Hanoverian society shot itself in the foot
and now has to rely on the buying the most expensive stallion at auction to generate the publicity to cash in the breedings.
That's exactly what Axel Brockmann did. The director of the Lower Saxon State Stud in Celle acquired the bay Spörcken (by Sir Donnerhall x Lauries Crusador xx x Weltmeyer x Bolero (video top right corner)) for the top knock down price. The elegant bay stallion, who did not even make it to the premium ring, sold for 300,000 euro. This young colt is bred by Benedicte Meyer from Luxembourg and was presented at the licensing by Detlef Ruddat.
The highlights of the 2010 Hanoverian Licensing included four premium stallions. The crowds loved the powerful trotting premium stallion Conen (by Chequille x Landclassic x Grandenstern), which was presented by Johannes Westendarp and I Derichsweile and who sold to a Hamburg based dressage rider for 190,000 euro. The dark bay colt has a super engine from behind but is slightly croupe high.
Another star of the collection was Bonard de Charry (by Brentano II x Donnerhall x Lauries Crusador xx). This liver chestnut stallion impressed in hand with his engaged hind leg and beautiful model. He sold for 120,000 euro to France. Some spectators considered the grey Del Magico (by Dimaggio x Feinbrand x Akzent II) the best mover of the entire licensing. He sold for 200,000 euro to Austria.
A Russian Hanoverian enthusiast acquired six stallions in total, including Wilhelm Klausing's delightful black stallion Don Sergio (by Dancier x Don Frederico x Prestige Pilot). This premium stallion has a mediocre walk but super trot and wonderful conformation. He sold for 220,000 euro to this Russian.
The most expensive show jumping stallion was the Italian owned premium stallion Satisfaction III (by Stakkato x Calypso II). The Russian client acquired him for
The average price for a licensed stallion at auction was 60,523 euro and 50% of them sold abroad. The average price for a non licensed stallion was 20,963 euro.
The most expensive, non licensed stallion was Foundation (by Fidertanz x De Vito) bred by Gerd Pigge. He sold for 95,000 euro to Paul Schockemöhle, Katrinelund and Priess Stutteri.
