Neumuenster, GER- Seven Premium Trakehner stallions paraded round the Holstenhallen in Neumuenster, but one outshone the rest: Kaiser Milton, by Millennium-Van Deyk. The dark bay sunshine boy, bred by A.J.M. aan de Stegge, The Netherlands and owned by von J.P. Dalsem, The Netherlands, not only moved with special quality, loose and powerful, he also had a good jump and proved on all four days that he has an extraordinary constitution.
His pedigree is exquisite: the dam Kaiser’s Els is a full sister to the highly successful full brothers Kaiserkult TSF (Dorothee Schneider) and Kaiserdom TSF (Katrin Meyer zu Strohen). Breeding manager Lars Gehrmann praised him: “Kaiser Milton was the most noble under the noble. He exudes a brilliancy like no other.” The Klosterhof Medingen secured the Trakehner Champion Stallion 2017 for 320,000 Euros in the following auction.
Sir Picasso, by Distelzar-Pretty Dancer (breeder: Charlotte Vogel, Switzerland, owner: BG Charlotte Vogel and Bernhard Langels, Switzerland), was proclaimed reserve champion by the licensing committee. “He is an important model of a sporty young stallion, always collected, always jumping to attention, a stallion with a lot of potential.” This stallion was not offered for sale. United Affair, by Herbstkoenig-Sixtus (ZG Thoensen, Rantzau, owner: Consortium Cava, Kisdorf), advanced to take the second reserve champion spot. “This stallion won us over with his impressive duel capabilities which is very uncommon,” said Lars Gehrman. United Affair found a new home in Hamburg for 100,000 Euros. The 13 licensed stallions achieved an average price of 64.181,81 Euros. The Chairman of the Trakehner Association, Dr. Norbert Camp, was very happy: “We’ve had a very successful event, achieved good prices and I think the breeders are motivated as they head home and are thinking: Yes, I’m in the right association.”
Mares and Foals
The highly decorated Krishna, by Elfado-Ivernel (breeder and owner: Tasdorf Stud), trotted to the top of the lot. The stylish bay was named Mare of the Year on Saturday and has found a new home in Austria for 60,000 Euros. An average of 26,814.28 Euros was paid for the seven mares. Helia, by Helium (breeder and owner: Juergen Altmiks, Sylt), was the most expensive foal: the dark bay dancer was sold to Austria for 20,000 Euros. Even more expensive was the auctioned embryo from Freiherr von Stein out of Zikade, which was a first at a German Association auction. This precious combination was secured by an Austrian client for 24,000 Euros. Clients from six countries paid an average of 10,718.75 Euros for the foals.
Sidney Bay, by Axis-Kostolany, and Nuno Palma E Santos were at the top of the TSF Dressage Championat Final with 74.350%.
