Results first edition Taunus-Talent Auction

With great pride and great anticipation we were able to present a new project to you: The Taunus-Talent Auction.

The previous months of 2020 have shown how important it is – in addition to our soft spot for tradition – to be innovative and to reinvent yourself again and again.

Despite canceled foal shows, which have been used as a sales platform in recent years, we wanted to offer breeders the opportunity to sell their foals in the best possible way. That is why Oceanside GmbH & Co. KG has launched an online auction under the direction of Matthias Rath.

Twelve selected foals with well-known fathers like Totilas or Destacado FRH came under the virtual hammer.

All twelve foals in the auction are descended from stallions of the Schafhof stud and achieved an average price of around EUR 10,500. Five of the twelve foals were sold to buyers from Switzerland, Brazil, France, Thailand and the Netherlands.

With this result, which is of international interest, we are very satisfied with this result of the first edition of the Taunus-Talent Auction.

Stud director and managing director Matthias Alexander Rath therefore draws a positive conclusion: “Each of the foals has promising facilities and we are very excited to see when and where we will meet these Taunus talents again. We would like to thank the breeders for their trust and wish the successful bidders all the best and we promise those who have not been awarded the foal of their choice that this was not our last auction! ”
