ANKUM, Germany, Dec. 6, 2015–Fasine, the six-year-old Oldenburg state premium mare, was sold for €1.3/US$1.4 million as the highest priced dressage horse at the 36th annual Performance Sales International auction.

Sired by Fürst Romancier out of a Sir Donnerhall I mare, Fasine was the 2015 German six-year-old champion and goes to a stud farm in the Munich area where she will continue to be trained and competed by Norwegian rider Isabel Bache. The horse was bred by PSI’s Paul Schockemöhle.

Fürst Romancieer was highly placed as a five-year-old at the World Young Horse Championships and the Bundeschampionate. Sir Donnerhall, the damsire, was by Sandro Hit, and won at the Bundeschampionate in 2006, and was second in the World Championships for five-year-olds.

Another highlight of the dressage collection was the sale to a French buyer of Sean Connery, a chestnut stallion and son of Sir Donnerhall I for €850,000/US$925,000. The horse will be stabled in Luxembourg while being developed for championships.

Overall, dressage horses averaged €316,739/US$333,739 for total revenue of €7.285/US$7.930 million. Jumpers brought an average of €420,400/US$457,630 for a total of €10.51/US$11.44 million.

The six-year-old gray mare Stalognia attained the highest price for jumpers, €1.7/US$1.85 million sold to a French buyer.
