01/09 Fait Accompli one of the highlights at the BBAG

FAIT ACCOMPLI (Bering-Fantastic Flame) bred by Graf und Grafin Stauffenberg and raised at their Schlossgut Itlingen, was one of the "most talked" horses at the BBAG Yearling Sale. This is a huge compliment to the staff at the stud, who showed the filly in the best possible condition.

The EBN wrote:
Rudiger Alles bidding on behalf of Gestut Hofgut Mappan, paid €
240,000 for Lot 148, a filly by Bering named Fait Accompli. Bidding opened up at €80,000 and Alles had to outbid Martillo’s owners Gestut Hony-Hof to secure the full-sister to the Hong Kong Gr.2 winner Bahamian Dancer. The filly, a lovely individual who was racy and oozed quality, has been bought as a racing and breeding prospect. Her half-sister by Oasis Dream, named Fairfield Flame, was bought for €230,000 at Goffs November Foal Sale in 2005.
Their dam
Fantastic Flame
(Generous) comes from the top-class Ballymacoll family of Pilsudski and Fine Motion. Vendor Philipp von Stauffenberg said, “We really liked this filly. The mare has an Oasis Dream filly at foot and we had originally planned to retain this filly and sell the foal. But she unfortunately fractured a sesamoid and chances are she won’t race and certainly won’t be fit for sale at auction, thus the change of plan”.
