The bay colt Dynamic Heart became the best selling foal of the live auction Andreas Helgstrand and Paul Schockemöhle held on 4 June 2022 during the Danish Dressage Championships hosted at Helgstrand's yard in Uggerhalne, Denmark.
Previously known as Nordic International Sales, the auction was now called the "Schockemöhle/Helgstrand Exclusive Live Foal Auction".
The auction literally turned out to be a "home show" as Helgstrand and his business associates bought the most expensive horses for themselves. No online bidding was offered, only over the phone or live at the event.
Dynamic Heart (by Dynamic Dream x Zack x Michellino), bred by Lena and Rasmus Dalsgaard, was the best seller in the lot, fetching 90,000 euro (675,000 DKK). He was bought by Andreas Helgstrand.
Also the second most expensive foal was purchased by a business partner of Helgstrand, Søren Grønborg, who co-owns stallion Revolution along with numerous other young stallions and youngsters such as Knock-Out, Revolution Nobel, and Ghandi SS. Brix So Special (by So Perfect x Furstenball x Welt Hit II) sold for 65,000 euro to Søren Grønborg.
Brix So Special is bred by Ditte Brix Frandsen and Flemming Andersen, who also sold a second foal in this auction. Brix Rafiniro (by Revolution x Franklin x De Niro) fetched 28,000 euro.
The most expensive filly was HP Vivienne, who is by Vitalis and out of German Mare Champion Be My Beauty Queen (by Bonds x San Amour). She is bred by Lone Boegh Henriksen who had three foals in this auction. Vivienne sold for 34,000 euro to a Danish buyer. HP Vittoriio (by Vitalis x De Niro) fetched 20,000 euro.
