15/10/15 Yearling Sales Season finished on a high note

again a session topper for Stauffenberg Bloodstock


For the yearling sales at Goffs and Tattersalls the team at SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN prepped 12 yearlings. 

As usual STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK did not consign at Goffs, but used the long standing partnership with Abbeville & Meadow Court Studs to sell a FILLY by CLODOVIL out of NAMIBIA on behalf of Haras de Saint Pair. She was purchased  for €65.000 by the BBA Ireland and was thus the most expensive yearling by her sire at Goffs or Tattersalls in 2015. 

Seven quality yearlings were consigned by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK at Tattersalls Book I, now seen as the best sale worldwide. It is a terrific sale, if your yearling ticks all the boxes of the very small selective group of buyers. Otherwise there is little chance to sell at all. So finally only four of the seven were sold in the ring. Of the seven five were pinhooked for a syndicate by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK and two were prepped and offered for their breeder, the Haras de Saint Pair. The dearest of the pinhooks was a FILLY by OASIS DREAM out of ANA MARIE. She fetched GNS350.000 and thus made €180.000 more than she cost as a foal. She was bought by Benoit Jeffroy on behalf of Al Shaqab Racing. Al Shaqab Racing is the new owner of a COLT by ZOFFANY out of GLYMPSE as well.  He made GNS200.000 and was purchased by Charlie Gordon-Watson. A FILLY by CASAMENTO out of ASHIRA made GNS200.000 when purchased by John Ferguson on behalf of Godolphin. This prize made her the most expensive yearling sold by her sire so far. Both yearlings returned nice profits for their investors, as the colt made €170.000 and the filly €70.000 more than their respective foal prizes.

STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK consigned four yearlings at Tattersalls Book II, the "real" marketplace and sold all of them. The highest prized was NINGALOO, homebred by Graf und Grafin Stauffenberg at their SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN. NINGALOO is a colt by SIYOUNI out of NOTRE DAME was the top lot on the final day of the sales, when selling for GNS280.000 to Simon Crisford acting on behalf of Sheikh Mohammed Obaid al Maktoum. A COLT by DARK ANGEL out of BUGIE D'AMORE fetched GNS100.000 selling to John Ferguson on behalf of Godolphin. Overall the four yearlings averaged GNS130.000, what was more than the double of the whole sale.
