It is the best result recorded for our Agency since its creation 25 years ago and it is probably a world record for an auction organization. They will be six of them, sold by FENCES at three years old, to participate in showjumping competitions for six different countries.

 

Milano de Flore, a grey stallion by Carthago, sold for 95 000 € in 2003 to Edouardo Rosenberg, Argentinian breeder, will participate for Argentina ridden by Alejandro Madorno.

 

Pegase de Talma, a son of Dollar du Mûrier, sold for 34 000 € in 2006, will defend the Chilean colours with Nicolas Imschenetzky.

E-mail Print PDF

WilliMellingerThe 61-year-old Willi Melliger lives with his wife and three children in the Swiss Neuendorf. The legendary show jumper Calvaro is inextricably linked to this former Olympic rider. In 1996 the combination won individual silver during the Olympic Games in Atlanta. But it did not stop there; during the Games in Sydney in 2000 Switzerland won team gold. As if that is not enough, Willi and Calvaro also won four medals at the World Championships. The success even resulted in a book starring Calvaro entitled: 'White Myth'.

 

Willi Melliger: "I have known the Hendrix family for a very long time. We have frequently worked together over the past years. Not just because The Netherlands has acquired a good position in international equestrianism, but also due to the great amount of knowledge the Dutch horsemen and women have. The Hendrix family is a perfect example of this."
