Top priced foal Classy Art

For the seventh time, the Hannoveraner Verband announced "Bid Up runs – Sold" for 30 first-class foals. The highest price was achieved by Classy Art, who found a new owner for 16,000 Euros.

The total turnover amounted to 220,000 Euros. On average 7,333 Euros had to be invested for a foal.


The top priced foal is equipped with an exquisite pedigree, which goes back to the foundation mare Algave. Classy Art by Conthargos/Werther (breeder and exhibitor: Vetart GmbH, Dägeling) is a daughter of the performance mare show jumping Wertherröschen. She has not only been successful in sport herself, but is also the dam of the privately owned sire Stakkato Gold. The son of Stakkato was Champion Stallion Jumping at his licensing in Verden, celebrated international top placings with Germany’s Jan Sprehe and was Hannoveraner Stallion of the Year five years ago. His half-sister Classy Art was auctioned off to a customer from Germany for 16,000 Euros.


Nine bidders placed 29 bids for the son of Bon Voyage/Sandro Hit, Belmondo (breeder an exhibitor: Udo Hoppe, Zobbenitz) and made the strong moving dark bay from the dam line of Dallas the best paid dressage offspring. He will travel to Southern Germany, where he has found a new owner for 13,000 Euros.


The interest in the foals of the 7th Verden Online Auction was also very high internationally. About half of the foals will leave Germany: four will grow up in Great Britain, two each in France and Spain. One foal each was sold to customers from Switzerland, the United Arab Emirates, Austria and Ireland.
