The black Danish warmblood filly Fellini (by Franklin x Sezuan) became the top selling foal of the 2018 Nordic International Sales which took place on Saturday evening 26 May 2018 during the Equitour Aalborg in Uggerhalne, Denmark.
The 2018 edition beat the previous, inaugural auction with a higher turnover and average sales price as two foals sold over 100,000 euro.
Henrik Hansen was the breeder of the two top selling foals. The price highlight was the black filly Fellini (by Franklin out of Souvenir (by Sezuan x Fassbinder)) which sold for 115,000 euro to a local buyer.
