29/04/18 12th and the most valuable win for Moabit, Blacktype for Geraldine ...

... and a good debut for Flintrock in a Maiden known for throwing some Gr.1 winners


The day started with a promising third for FLINTROCK (Sinndar-FOUR ROSES) in a Maiden at Salisbury which has come up with some decent horses like ESTIMATE, HARBOUR LAW, etc on really heavy ground, he really did not appreciate. Bred by Graf and Grafin Stauffenberg at their SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN FLINTROCK was sold by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK at the Tattersalls October Yearling Sales. Purchased by Oliver St Lawrence on behalf of Guy Brook, he is trained by Andrew Balding who thinks he is a better horse.

The next race at Salisbury was the Betfred City Bowl Handicap, the most valuable race on the card. It was won by MOABIT, an other graduate of STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK. Being prepped and sold on behalf of his breeder Gestut am Schlossgarten for only €12.000 at the BBAG Yearling Sales, MOABIT has now won 12 races on the flat and over jumps in France and England and amassed more than €100.000. He is trained by Paul Nicholls for the Owners Group 014 and was ridden by Megan, the daughter of the trainer.

The Italian Guineas were the main races of the day of the meeting at Cappanelle in Roma, but of special interest for the whole team of SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN was the Premio Carlo Chiesa, a Listed Race over 1.200m in which GERALDINE (Royal Applause-GOLDEN WHIP) started the first time in a Blackyped Race for owner Mark Cuscheri, trainer and jockey Antonio Cannella. The multiple winning filly in England and Italy fought hard for the second place, finished 3rd by a head and gained her first blacktyped and that for her dam as well. Bred by Graf and Grafin Stauffenberg GERALDINE was sold for GNS15.000 at the Tattersalls February Sales.
