Fynch Hatton was named the champion of the 2019 Oldenburg Saddle Licensing in Vechta, Germany, on 5 April 2019.
Fourteen young stallions were presented to the Oldenburg licensing committee and five received a positive verdict.
The beautiful Fynch Hatton (by Formel Eins x Sir Donnerhall x Weltmeyer) was named the champion Stallion of the eighth Oldenburg Saddle Licensing. The 3-year old colt is bred by Bernhard Ilting-Reuke from Borken, Germany. The dam of the Champion Stallion also produced the licensed stallions First Choice (by Fidertanz) as well as Fürst Magic (by Fürstenball OLD), successful in advanced level dressage tests under Dorothee Schneider.
"We have seen a wonderful stallion here. From the test rider Beatrice Buchwald he got the highest mark 10.0. His look and his sovereignty are an example par excellence – a pearl for breeding, "described Oldenburg's breeding director Dr. Wolfgang Schulze-Schleppinghoff the champion.
At the auction following the licensing on 6 April 2019, Fynch Hatton became the price highlight, selling for 260,000 euro to Andreas Helgstrand in Denmark.
The Reserve Champion title went to the 3-year old What’s Up (by Weltmeyer x Sir Donnerhall I - Rohdiamant), bred by Stutteri Uno from Denmark. He sold for 88,000 euro to Germany
The third ranked premium stallion was the 3-year old Bon Akzent (by Bon Coeur x Akribori - Akzent II), bred by Volkhard Folkers from Wanderland, Germany and owned by Blue Hors stud. He sold for 85,000 euro to a German customer.
