Teuflesberg relocated to Journeyman Stud

GRADE 2 winner Teuflesberg will stand at Journeyman Stud in Ocala, Florida, in 2010, after being relocated from Hurricane Hall in Kentucky, which disbanded its stallion operation earlier this year.

The five-year-old son of Johannesburg entered stud last year after winning five of his 21 starts, including the Woody Stephens Breeders' Cup over 7f at three.

Ben Walden, former general manager of Hurricane Hall, said: "Teuflesberg is the ideal fit for Florida. He was a very good two-year-old with a tremendousconstitution.

"His speed and class are unquestionable if you look at what he went on to accomplish as a three-year-old, winning a Grade 2 sprint at Belmont and stretching out around two turns to win the Southwest at Oaklawn.

"I believe in Teuflesberg, and all of the original shareholders are staying in on the horse. After seeing his first crop of babies here in Kentucky it gives you even more confidence in his potential as a sire."

Teuflesberg was bred by Richard Giacopelli out of the Devil's Bag mare St Michele, who hails from the family of high-class US miler Northcote Road. His fee at Journeyman Stud next year has not been announced.
