Repdigit for „Der Keiler“

The first horse to enter the Verden Auction ring in 2019 set a mark with its price of 88,000 Euros, which should still be valid after 78 horses. With an average price of 15,801 Euro, the Verden Auction had taken a fresh course in January.

With the applause of the numerous visitors in the Niedersachsenhalle, Der Keiler by Don Index/Werther was sold. The breeder and exhibitor of this typey bay is Carl Graf von Hardenberg, Nörten-Hardenberg, who did not miss the chance to give a package of delicacies from his distillery to the buyer. For 88,000 Euros a Belgian top dressage trainer, who has been a regular customer at the Verden Auctions for 25 years, secured the brillant moving dressage talent. Fürst Benno v. Fürst Belissaro/Worldly (breeder: Klaus Kropp, Bermen, exhibitor: Winfried Albers, Neuenkirchen) was number two in the buyer's favour and was auctioned off to Spain by telephone for 75,000 Euro.




Clemens by Coupe d'Or/Drosselklang II (breeder and exhibitor: Gestüt Sprehe GmbH, Löningen) was the best paid show jumper. The bay, who already has victories and placings up to 1,30 m, will move into a box in a Spanish show jumping stable for 29,000 Euro.




"The price structure was solid. The average price was reached without outliers", auction manager Jörg-Wilhelm Wegener said. The audience was very competent and open-minded, was to be heard from all members of the team of the training and sales centre of the Hannoveraner Verband. 34 horses achieved prices of 15,000 Euro and more. The export rate was almost 50 percent, 37 horses will leave Germany, eight found a new owner in Belgium.
