“Without Limits” – Top-priced horse Senza Limiti sold at the highest price of Euro 150,000

Sensa Limiti by Stakkato - Don Juan: Top Seller at April 2012 Elite Auction

65 Hanoverian riding horses were sold at the 126th Elite Auction in Verden. The amazingly
jumping Stakkato/Don Juan-son Senza Limiti (breeder and exhibitor: Il Chirone di Bruna de Paolis,
San-Vito/Italy) achieved with Euro 150,000 the highest price of the day. The average auction sales
price was Euro 29,123. The statistics show that the 28 horses that will leave Germany contributed
to approx. half of the total turnover. “The development abroad is positive and justifies our
marketing measures”, breeding manager Dr. Werner Schade said.
Bernfried Erdmann purchased the stallion Senza Limiti. He is running his breeding and training stable with
a lot of passion. Top-priced horse for the dressage arena became the Don Frederico/White Star-daughter
Donna Felicia (breeder: Wolfgang Lohmann, Sandbostel-Mintenburg, exhibitor: Doris Hoffmann, Rhade).
Customers from Austria paid Euro 130,000 for the state premium candidate. Established buyer countries
like Great Britain and France purchased each four young Hanoverian horses. Just like American customers,
emphasizing the positive purchasing trend in the US to be recognized again. Four futurity prospects will
travel to China and three to the Russian Federation.
Averagely Euro 6,800 was paid for the 43 sold foals with almost a balance between home and foreign
sales. Following a thrilling bidder’s duel, auctioneer Friedrich-Wilhelm Isernhagen sold the
Fidertanz/Friedensfürst-foal Fifty-Fifty (breeder: Kai Baumgartner, Wulkau) at the highest bid of Euro
33,000 to a Lower Saxonian stallion raiser.

The Gala Evening Show of the Elite Auction provided quite a couple of highlights. Isabell Werth said
goodbye to her World Champion and Olympic horse Satchmo in front of Hanoverian breeders and friends
from all over the world. The audience thanked the Sao Paulo/Legat-son, bred by Albert Kampen, Halle,
with standing ovations. His career started at the Verden Stallion Sales in 1996. 

Privately owned stallion Desperados by De Niro/Wolkenstein II (breeder: Herbert Schütt, Hemmoor) was honoured with the 
Grande-Prize to the great applause of the audience. Besides, he will start at future competitions with the
abbreviation of the Hanoverian Supporters Club FRH. The eleven-year-old does not only count among the
best young German Grand Prix-horses under Christina Sprehe, he also established an excellent reputation
as breeding stallion. It is a tradition that the most successful auction exhibitor of the last 10 years is
honoured at the Spring Auction. This year, Klaus Michaelis from Basdahl was awarded the Hans Joachim
Köhler-Prize.
