01/12/18 Al Galayel achieves his biggest success so far and wins the Australia Plate ...

... he was successfully pinhooked by Stauffenberg Bloodstock


AL GALAYEL by ZOFFANY  won the Australia Plate at Mooenee Valley and his 5th and most important race so far. AL GALAYEL was purchased for a PINHOOKING SYNDICATE by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK at the Tattersalls December Sales and raised at SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN, where he was prepped for Book I of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sales the following year. Consigned there by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK AL GALAYEL was purchased by Charlie Gordon-Watson on behalf of Al Shaqab Racing and put into training with Luca Cumani, for whom he won 2 races at 3 years in England, before he was sold on to Australia. Down there he has now won his 3rd race for M Johnstone and his partners under the guidance of trainer Ciaron Maher and was ridden by Craig Williams.

AL GALAYEL is a typical sample for a successful PINHOOK by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK. Purchased for GNS84.000 as a foal, he was sold on for GNS200.000 as a yearling 10 month later and returned 91% profit for the shareholders in the syndicate.
