Still looking for the right stallion, at the right price, for the 2014 breeding season? The Rheinland Pfalz-Saar International’s annual Stallion Service Auction opened Feb 28th and closes Saturday, March 15th. The quality and variety of stallions on offer has never been better, with starting bids for Warmbloods at $500 and Ponies at $250. We have an interesting mix of trendy young stallions, and well-proven stars - 46 total, with several 'choice-of' lots, expanding the selection to 57 stallions in all! The auction is user friendly and easy to navigate, with full pedigrees, photos, information and videos, along with links to the stallion owners’ websites. American-based stallions take the forefront, with big-name stars such as Fox Fire Farm’s Dolany (Donnerhall x Cor de la Bryere), new to the USA for 2014, and Hilltop Farm’s choice of Bugatti, Contucci, Royal Prince or Qredit (winner of the 2012 70-day stallion test). Horses Unlimited presents a breeding dynasty with father/son Grand Prix stallions Pik L and Pikko Del Cerro HU. Dreamscape Farm’s Florestan son Freestyle is sire of the 2013 stallion test champion, and breeding values soar from Lagoheidor, full brother to Oldenburg Sire of the Year Landor S.
The RPSI Stallion Service auction features an unequaled lineup of German Riding Pony stallions too, including high-score 2013 pony test champion Fox Creek’s Diamond King by Dance Star AT, 2011 pony test winner Highlife’s Burberry by Bodyguard (who is also offered!), and eventing star Belafonte d’Avalon by Hilkens Black Delight.
The auction brings a great selection of Jumper, Hunter and Event stallions too, like Intermediate level Hanoverian eventer San City (San Remo x Bolero), Grand Prix jumper Imothep by Indoctro, Marabet Farm’s Bliss MF, and Rising Star Farm’s Darco son Valentino Z.
New for 2014, the RPSI is introducing frozen semen from the new South German/RPSI Semen Bank – offering previously unavailable genetics for North American breeders. The 2011 Holsteiner licensing sensation Cascadello I (Casall x Clearway), who sold for 600,000 Euro, is available, as well as the 2013 Dressage Bundeschampion of the 3 y.o. stallions Fürst Fohlenhof (Fidertanz x Mephistopheles). Scopy and stylish Darco son and international jumper Damarco (Darco x Raphael) and the elegant young Hanoverian Lordanos son Lavagon are also available through this new program. Another international offering, bringing the powerhouse combination of Sandro Hit x Donnerhall, is Superior Equine Sires’ Sir Donnerhall II.
The auction also features a foal futurity, with cash prizes and awards for top-scoring foals from Stallion Service Auction breedings presented to the RPSI for registration, as well as recognition for their sires.
