For the Third Time: Holsteiner Winter-Chance on 12 December

The collection of the 3rd Winter-Chance which is to complete the 2021 Holsteiner auction year on 12 December comprises about 35 horses. Over the last two years, this event has become established as an ideal platform for uncut diamonds to be produced by the new  owners but also horses already started under saddle, some of them with competition results, have made it into the selection.

Like for example lot no 1, Quintheo R by Quintero-Casall: the six-year-old has already been placed in jumping classes to 1.10m and his full brother Theo has already been successful on the international stage with Dirk and Hannes Ahlmann. The direct damline of this big-framed dark bay has produced other top athletes placed to 1.50m. Lot no 5 presents very interesting as well: Allegretta by Adagio de Talma-Calido I shares the second dam with Mark Todd’s five-star-icon Leonidas by Landos who placed seventh in the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. The XL sized grey mare is four-year-old and ready for the 2022 showing season. Lot no 12, Mitchell by Million Dollar-Uriko, is another offer with showing ambitions: the gelding born in 2018 is out of a dam successfully shown to 1.20m level herself whose produce also includes a stallion graded son: Zuccarello by Zuccero, recently licensed at Neumünster, is his half brother. His second dam is also dam to Crunch by Clarimo, a licensed stallion and highly successful jumper to 1.60m classes. 

Sequence of events – auction starts at 2.30pm 
The horses move into the Elmhorn auction stable on 6 December where they undergo their first vet check. From the next day until 11 December they may be tried out anytime according to prior agreement. On the day of the auction on 12 December, the presentation of the younger horses shown at liberty and free jumping starts at 10am. Afterwards the Fritz-Thiedemann-arena belongs to the already backed horses for a presentation under saddle. There will be a last opportunity for trying out the horses at short notice prior to the start of the auction at 2.30pm. The third Holsteiner Winter Chance is currently being planned as a hybrid auction, depending on the applicable state regulations, the auction may be held online. The entire event is livestreamed by ClipMyHorse.tv. For the Holsteiner Winter-Chance the 2G rule applies. The collection including pedigrees, photo and video material can be viewed on holsteiner.auction.
