Winning 69 races and nearly €1.200.000 in 2018 means again a new record for the graduates of STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK. Most of the races were won outside Germany, 27 and the highest number again in the United Kingdom and Ireland.  And 27 were achieved as well by horses bred by Graf and Grafin Stauffenberg, the name Marion and Philipp are breeding under. The highlight of these was ZAHARA, who became the next classic winner for the Stauffenbergs' in Scandinavia, when she won the Norsk Oaks, like her mother did back in 2012. There was no Groupwinner last year, but the best horse prepped at SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN and consigned by STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK was TRAIS FLUORS. Already a Gr.3 winner at 3 years, he won a Listed in France and finished 3rd in the Prix D'Ispahan, Gr.1. An other Gr.3 winner in the past FEARLESS HUNTER finished twice 2nd in a Gr.3KING ARCHIE was the best 2yo in Czechia, having won both his starts with authority and becoming a local Stakeswinner. 

STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK achieved again very good results with it's yearling consignments, especially at Book II of the Tattersalls October Yearling Sales. With limited numbers and the withdrawal of the standout lot on paper on the day of the sale, as her 2yo brother PERSIAN KING had won the Autumn Stakes, Gr.3 the agency was again one of the leading consignors, having sold two of the Top 10 Lots. Lot 1217 a colt by KINGMAN out of LEGENDE BLEUE was purchased for GNS400.000 by Stephen Hillen and Henri Devin on behalf of Sheikh Mohammed Obaid al Maktoum and Lot 989 a filly by DANSILI out of CAPICHERA fetched GNS360.000 when she was purchased by Anthony Stroud on behalf of Godolphin.

Having pinhooked a colt foal by CAMACHO out of VERERI SENES to a yearling for GNS62.000 to GNS200.000, STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK was very active at the foal sales and bought 7 foals at Arqana, Goffs and Tattersalls between €35.000 and €180.000, respectively GNS160.000 for it's various PINHOOKING SYNDICATES
