The Verden May Auction featured 37 riding horses and 44 foals who attracted great interest from German and foreign customers. The four-year-old Delawarp turned out to be top-priced horse of the day and was sold at Euro 44,000. Euro 20,000 was the highest price paid by Bavarian customers for the foal Flambeau.
Euro 44,000 was the winning bid amount submitted for the shiny Don Index/Laurentiano-son Delawarp (breeder: Christiane Rötter-Voß, Winsen – exhibitor: Karl-Heinz Fischer, Wittorf), the first riding horse after the first group of foals put up for auction. The highest auction sales price of Euro 48,000 was achieved for a horse that was repurchased by its exhibitor.
The Hanoverian show jumpers were as popular with the buyers. A Dutch training stable paid Euro 24,000 for the big-framed, bay Quintano by Quintender/Glenfiddich (breeder and exhibitor: Margret Brauch-Rohe, Hitzacker).
The auction management was satisfied with the result of the Verden May Auction and its sound price structure. There was a huge interest from foreign customers in the collection. 17 horses found new owners abroad. One customer from Belgium purchased even five futurity prospects. Half of the collection (20 horses) was sold at Euro 15,000 and more, five of them at prices of more than Euro 25,000 which resulted in an average auctions sales price of Euro 17,635.
The foals born in 2017 exhibited high quality. Euro 6,620 was averagely paid for the youngsters with 12 of them being sold abroad. Spectators had to wait quite a long time for the most expensive foal to show up in the Niedersachsenhalle. No. 95, the For Romance II/Hohenstein-son Flambeau, born with Alexandra and Wilhelm Siekmann in Emmerthal, was sold at Euro 20,000 to a stallion raiser from Bavaria.
