Abakahn wins Listed and Calrissian race 21


ABAKAHN bei SHOLOKHOV repeated his victory in the Grand Steeplechase de Craon, a Stakesrace he has won back in 2014. ABAKAHN was bred by Lore Dickerhoff and prepped and sold by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK at the BBAG Autumn Sale through Piere Boulard to Guy Macaire. He cost only €17.000 but has now won more than 10 times his purchase prize.

A colt which has even won more on prizemoney is CALRISSIAN (Efisio-Centaine). Bred by Graf und Grafin Stauffenberg he was sold at the BBAG Yearling Sales for €75.000 and has now won nearly €490.000.  First owned by Provence Hotel Holdings and in training with Lars Kelp in Scandinavia, he was later transferred to Frederik Reuterskjöld, who formed CALRISSIAN to a Champion-Sprinter and Gr.3 winner in Scandinavia. Nowadays he is trained by Frank Foresi for a syndicate in France and still creates a lot of his fun for his owners.
