01/09/17 Stauffenberg Bloodstock a leading consignor at the BBAG Yearling Sales again


The most important sale in Germany is the BBAG Yearling Sale which takes place on the Friday before the Grosser Preis von Baden-Baden during the "Grosse Rennwoche" at Iffezheim close to Baden-Baden since a few years. 252 yearlings were catalogued of which 180 were sold. They averaged €43.719 (GBP40.234). 

STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK ended as 3rd leading consignor after having sold 9 of 11 yearlings offered for different owners with an average of €60.333 (GBP55.524), considerable higher than the average of the sale. The most expensive of these was Lot 195 a colt by KODIAC which was purchased for €200.000 (GBP184.060) by the Hong Kong Jockey Club. Underbidders were Peter & Ross Doyle. Overall everybody was more or less pleased as there was a lack of some important buyers especially at the higher end. However all yearlings sold by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK were purchased by foreign buyers, not a single one will enter training in Germany. They were sold to England, France, Hong Kong, Sweden, Switzerland and Czechia.
