STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK one of the leading consignors

79.jpgGermany's most important throughbred sale is the BBAG September Sale at Iffezheim near Baden-Baden. Held during the "Grosse Woche", the most important race meeting in Germany, this sale is the cradle of many top horses including DANEDREAM. The chance to buy a filly like DANEDREAM attracted even more international buyers than ever to Baden-Baden.
STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK had a final consignment of 11 yearlings at the sale. There were some worries beforehand, as it consisted out of only 3 colts and 8 fillies and there were alone 4 yearlings by SHIROCCO, who had 20 overall in the whole sale. However STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK sold the most expensive one, as FOR ME out of FLY ME TO THE MOON was sold for €80.000 to Highflyer Bloodstock.
