30/08 fantastic results for STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK at the BBAG Yearling Sale
yearlings have been sold to England, France, Germany, Ireland, Japan and USA
The BBAG Yearling Sale at Baden-Baden is always the highlight of the german sales calendar. The german runners abroad - in 2013 especially NOVELLIST
- promoted the german bred thoroughbred and the ones available for sale at the BBAG extremely well. As STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK
had sold this years Derby winner LUCKY SPEED
at the BBAG Yearling Sale, that was the right promotion for this years consignment as well. However, the quality of the horses on offer is essential, the yearlings have to show up in prime condition and last, but not least, there have to be buyers willing to spend the right sort of money.
For STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK
all these factors came right together and resulted in their best BBAG sale ever. 12 yearlings mainly from Germany, but France, Ireland and the UK were presented by quite an international team - Heike Senftleben (GER), Patrick Firth (GB), David Ryan (IRE), Michael Grange (GB), Kathrin Guenther (IRE/GER), Lena Douglas (IRE), Justin Cassidy (IRE), Zuzanna Lupa (F/POL) and Alexandra, Marion and Philipp.

and sold to Narvick International on behalf of Katsumi Yoshida/Japan. Lot 34 FRIEDRICHSPALAST
was bought by Pierre Boulard Bloodstock on behalf of Willie Mullins/Ireland whereas Lot 40 LYNX
stays in germany, having been sold to Stall Nizza. The same applies for Lot 55 NESSAYA
and Lot 99 NN
(Bright Snow) which have been bought by HFBT Racing Agency on behalf of Stall Salzburg and Dr. Oschmann respectively. Lot 124 MOABIT
