Vechta Auction News

Modern elite foals add an extra element of delight to the collection at the 2017 Oldenburg Autumn Elite Auction which will be held on Saturday, 30 September 2017. At the Oldenburg Horse Center Vechta you’ll find offspring from dressage champions that are combined with mare lines famous for their performance in sport. Don’t miss this opportunity to secure a future star of your own!

With their international pedigrees and extra class sires, these foals are enticing. Super sires such as the EC star Dante Weltino OLD, Vivaldi, his sons Vitalis and Desperado, Ibiza, Fidertanz, Diamond Hit, Fürstenball OLD, Rubin Royal OLD, Sezuan, For Romance I OLD and Bordeaux will be showing off their offspring in Vechta. In Vechta, you have a unique chance to discover one of tomorrow’s Oldenburg sport stars.

A glow of medals surrounds Dante Weltino OLD

Vitus Weltino (by Vitalis - Welt Hit II - Noble Roi xx) is one of many highlights in the collection. Dam Riconessa is a sister of Rihanna, who is the dam of the Grand Prix winning Dante Weltino OLD, and Riwera de Hus OLD, who won Grand Prix Special classes with Jessica Michel for France. The Richonse line is also the origin of the Grand Prix Special champions, Diego OLD ridden by Marion Op de Hipt and Cointreau under Peter Gmoser.

Dante Weltino OLD a second time

In the auction’s second act, the new star of the European Championships sends a magnificent son named Dante Rubin (by Dante Weltino OLD - Rubin Cortes OLD - Romancier). Dante Weltino OLD proved his highest level world class status at the EC in Gothenburg under Therese Nilshagen. The dam line is also known for a successful Grand Prix horse named Has to be Fun, ridden by the Irish rider Yvette Truesdale, a Prix St. Georges winner named Famoso, ridden by Benjamin Werndl, as well as a licensed stallion named Schickerio by Stedinger.

Success is programed with Vitalis

Look at Vapiano (by Vitalis - Don Schufro - Sevillano xx). The great granddam Westminsterin is a sister of the licensed Westminster by Weltmeister. Sire Vitalis sovereignly triumphed in the Nürnberg Burg Pokal Final. The dam’s sire Don Schufro currently basks in the limelight of his famous daughter, Weihegold OLD, who took EC gold under Isabell Werth. This good looking stallion prospect has everything it takes to be just as good as his famous sires.

Champions forever

Take note of Scherbring's Champ (by Sezuan - Diamond Hit - Florencio I). The sire of the Champion of the 1st Vechta Foal Championships is none other than triple World Champion Sezuan. The famous Fackila dam line is also the origin of Fackeltanz OLD, a licensed stallion owned by the Max-Theurer dressage stables, as well as Diamonit I + II, and Patrik Kittel’s EC bronze medal winner, Delaunay.
