There was lots of speculation about the reason - including the fact that he has capped hocks (and the underlying cause), concern about too much Sandro Hit influence in Hannover, and political pressure of various sorts (including a fair amount of consternation amongst the Hanoverian PTB about an Oldenburg branded stallion standing at Celle, and being ridden at the BuCha by a uniformed VhW employee, etc.).
It will be very interesting to see what kind of price he brings.
