Teuflesberg sold, will stand at Hurricane Hall

EmailGrade 2 winner Teuflesberg, who is recovering from a sesamoid injury he sustained in the Grade 3 Phoenix Stakes on Oct. 6, has been sold for an undisclosed sum and will stand stud at Hurricane Hall. The 3-year-old Johannesburg colt will start his stud career in 2008 at $10,000.

Hurricane Hall president Ben Walden Jr. said the partnership that raced Teuflesberg - trainer Jamie Sanders, her fiance Donnie Kelly, and partners Jeff Singer and Gary Logsdon - sold the colt outright to a new partnership group that includes Hurricane Hall.

"They sold the entire horse, but they do own some breeding rights, and they have expressed an interest in breeding to the horse," Walden said.

Teuflesberg won the 2006 Sugar Bowl Stakes and finished second in the Sanford at 2 before stamping himself a Kentucky Derby contender with a win in this year's Southwest Stakes, thirds in the Lecomte and Rebel stakes, and a fourth in the Blue Grass Stakes. After pressing the pace early, Teuflesberg finished 17th in the Derby. He came back to win Belmont's Grade 2 Woody Stephens Stakes. Teuflesberg also finished second in the Grade 2 Carry Back and Saratoga's Glow Stakes and was fourth in the Grade 1 King's Bishop.

Teuflesberg is being hand walked at Victory Haven Farm near Lexington and was expected at Hurricane Hall within the week, Walden said.
