11/10/17 a fantastic result and high emotions at Tattersalls Book II
consigned two yearlings at Book II of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sales after one yearling had to be withdrawn - however the result was fantastic. Overall the average of the sale was GNS78.339 and the highest ever. The two yearlings offered by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK
averaged GNS265.000 and this says something about the quality offered.
First in the ring came Lot 817 SAILING
, a filly by LOPE DE VEGA
. She was prepped at SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN
and offered on behalf of her breeders Gestut Gorlsdorf she was purchased for GNS230.000 by Juddmonte Farms, a rare purchaser at the yearling sales. She was purchased for racing with the idea to add her to the phenomenal broodmare band.
With Lot 1249 entered FABRIANO
the ring. This colt by SINNDAR
out of FOUR ROSES
was bred by Graf and Grafin Stauffenberg, whose second dam FRAULEIN TOBIN
is the foundation mare of the couple. He was purchased for GNS300.000 by Roger Varian on behalf of Sheikh Mohammed Obaid al Maktoum and thus became the second yearling from STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK
purchased by these connections in 2017 and the most expensive yearling by SINNDAR
ever sold at public auction. It was an emotional moment not only for his breeders and Heike Senftleben, who is taking care of the young stock at SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN
since 10 years could not shed a tear either.
