About Me, the full brother of the 1.65 million euro selling stallion About You, has sold for 1.35 million euro at the 2022 Hofauktion Borgmann on 20 August 2022.
Stephan Borgmann, a renowned breeder of Westfalian dressage horses, hosts an auction of home bred, reared and trained dressage horses biennially. This year the sales event took place in a hybrid format with live and online bidding.
In 2020 his then 4-year old stallion About You (by AC/DC x Estobar) caused a sensation when he sold for 1.65 million euro to The Netherlands. This year full brother About Me pulled the same trick. Andreas Helgstrand had to dig deep into his pockets to secure About Me. He had the highest bid at the auction for 1.35 million euro, a price claimed which needs to be paid in full instead of a pre-auction deal.
The collection included 16 young horses, from top talents to also horses for the leisure rider and adult amateur.
The second most expensive horse in the collection was Amore Mio, a 5-year old gelding by Adrenalin x Estobar, which according to Borgmann fetched "around 160,000 euro). He will move to The Netherlands.
Eveline, a 4-year old mare by Estobar NRW x Insterburg, sold for 'around' 110,000 euro. She found a new home in Sweden.
