Million Euro Investments at the 36th P.S.I. Auction

Ankum – Stalognia and Fasine were the best-priced horses of the 36th P.S.I. Auction on December 6 in Ankum. Paul Schockemöhle and Ullrich Kasselmann compiled another outstanding and exquisite collection of show jumping and dressage horses, and they were finally highly satisfied with their two top horses and a total revenue of Euro 17,795,000.

The 6-year old grey mare Stalognia by Stakkatol x Chacco-Blue was top-priced horse of the auction, and with 1.7 million Euro at the same time most expensive jumper of this 2015 P.S.I. collection. A customer from France paid this outstanding price for the daughter of the successful Chalanda, sold at the 2012 P.S.I. Auction. Paul Schockemöhle confirmed this decision: “Stalognia is maybe the best horse I have ever bred.”

Many had anticipated before that she would be very expensive, as the top-priced horse of the 36th dressage collection delights and fascinates many horse enthusiasts. She was nominated best Oldenburg mare at the age of three, became the best German dressage horse at the age of six: state premium mare Fasine. She won the 2015 Federal Championships of six-year-old horses with the sensational final score of 9.3 with Paul Schockemöhle’s rider, the Norwegian Isabel Freese (formerly Bache), and she is at the same time the pride of her breeder Paul Schockemöhle. And particularly excellent news were announced directly after the bid of 1.3 million Euro was accepted: Isabell Freese will continue to ride Fasine who is now owned by a stud in Beyern.

The third most expensive horse of the collection, sold at Euro 900,000, will stay in Germany. The Chacco-Blue-daughter Chacco’s Girl, catalogue no. 50, out of a Baloubet du Rouet-dam, already won medium level tests.

Another highlight of the dressage collection is the chestnut stallion Sean Connery. The son by Sir Donnerhall I combines best dressage blood, reason enough for his future owner from France to invest Euro 850,000. He will be prepared in Luxembourg for future championships.

The jumpers were sold at Euro 10,510,000 in total with an average auction sales price of Euro 420,400. The dressage horses were sold at averagely Euro 316,739 and a total revenue of Euro 7,285,000.

The 36th P.S.I. Auction was again confirmation to follow the right path, knows Ullrich Kasselmann. He was aware that there were still things to improve. Schockemöhle and Kasselmann will continue to support and foster the breeding business to maintain the basis for the P.S.I. auctions. “Besides, Paul and I have decided to fertilize the tournament scene with new ideas – be ready for amazing novelties,” Kasselmann and his partner will keep on surprising.
