The Trakehner Totilas sold to Paul Schockemohle

The Web site of the Trakehner Verband reports (October 15, 2010) that the dressage WEG triple-Gold Medal winner TOTILAS (by Gribaldi, out of a Dutch mare) has been sold to Paul Schockemöhle, former German Olympic jumper rider and top horse breeder and dealer, for an undisclosed price that is rumored to be in the double digit million Euro range. It is not clear whether Schockemöhle intends to compete the stallion or use him strictly for breeding.

Schockemöhle had also acquired Totilas' sire Gribaldi earlier this year but lost him when the stallion died unexpectedly due to a torn artery.
