Chyazint, a 6 year old show jumping mare sold for 4 million euros.
As you probably know... FoalR is getting ready to welcoming show jumping and Eventing stallions in 2023! So we had to start talking to you about these disciplines on the blog too... And what better way to start than with the record (!) PSI auction?
Chyazint, the Top Price, is a daughter of Casallco with a dam by Heartbreaker. This respectful and demonstrative mare is 6 years old and has been competing at 1.35m this year under Swedish rider Ebba Johansson before being offered for sale. Frank Auer, a German businessman who made his fortune in the energy sector, spent no less than 4 million euros on the youngster.
Fürstin Aura, Top Price in Dressage
The dressage discipline was also very successful at the PSI auction. The four-year-old Fürstin Aura, who was sold for €1,050,000, is a daughter of Fürst Jazz with a dam by Don Schufro. Sold to Swiss based in Belgium, no doubt we will see her in competition again very soon! These same buyers also bought Front Girl (by Foundation x Fursten-Look) who sold for €850,000 and Top Boy (by Top Gear x Foundation) for €700,000.
There is no doubt that the organisers of this highly reputed auction were more than satisfied with their results!
