The second PS Online Young Stallion Auction will offer 18 youthful stallions for sale to buyers around the world. The youngsters’ sires include top mounts like Cornet Obolensky, Vivaldi, De Niro and Totilas, providing superstar potential in show jumping and dressage. Bidding on the young stallions, some of whom have already been accepted for licensing, will continue until October 7. For a video preview of the auction, see below.  

Last year, PS’s inaugural young stallion auction sparked a huge demand for the eight budding mounts on offer, and this year Paul Schockemöhle’s team widened its search to identify 18 special stallions. The team used performance blood as its criteria in selecting for this second auction, which is exemplified by Cornet Obolensky, who appears four times in the auction candidates’ pedigrees. Cornet – whose sire Clinton was one of the most successful show jumping stallions in the world and dam sire Heartbreaker was also successful in international competitions – was a champion at the highest level with Germany’s Marco Kutscher.

On the dressage side, Vivaldi, a sire of licensed stallions and numerous champion mares worldwide, is the sire of three stallions in this latest collection. De Niro – who won the German Dressage Derby and led the ranking of the best dressage sires in the world for five years – is also represented in this selection of stallions, as a sire and grand-sire. As is Totilas, a three-time world champion who has also set breeding records, including as sire of the most expensive foal sold to date, Total Recall, auctioned for €200,000.
