Fidus trots to the top price
On the last weekend of May, the first foals of the 2019 vintage were auctioned off in the Niedersachsenhalle. In the 70th anniversary year of the Verden Auctions a new concept celebrated its premiere. For the first time foals were offered on one event in spring. The front-runner in the price table was Fidus, who was sold to a breeder from Lower Saxony for 21,000 euros.
The most coveted auction candidate in the Niedersachsenhalle was Fidus by Fürst Belissaro/Dr. Watson (breeder and exhibitor: Petra Mohrmann, Wanna). He impressed the audience already during the presentation with the highest quality of movement and imperturbable uniformity in the appearance. Auctioneer Bernd Hickert knocked the elegant, modern black colt off into the direct neighbourhood of Verden to a breeder from Ritterhude for 21,000 Euros.
Felina by Feinrich/Rousseau (breeder and exhibitor: Michael Niethamer, Weil der Stadt) had earlier left the auction ring with applause. Lively acclaimed, the dark bay trotted into the possession of a highly successful breeder from North Rhine-Westphalia, who has already secured many top talents in young years in the Niedersachsenhalle. The highest price of the foals with a jumping pedigree was achieved by Carius H v. Chacfly PS/Numero Uno (breeder and exhibitor: Hans-Heinrich Hagemann, Pattensen), who will follow Feline for 16.000 Euros. "The three foals have already been the focus of interest at the morning presentation," said auction manager Jörg-Wilhelm Wegener.
An average price of 7,197 Euros had to be invested for the Hanoverian offsprings. 18 foals will leave Germany, five of them to the Netherlands and four to Great Britain. "The lively auction activity shows us that the new concept is well received by our customers," said auction manager Jörg-Wilhelm Wegener. The mood was already positive on the evening before the auction. Home is a feeling – this was the motto of the well-attended Breeders' Evening to which the team of the Training and Sales Centre of the Hannoveraner Verband had invited.
