Our August der Starke son, Augustin, won 40,400 Euros this year in prizes and took an excellent eighth place. In total he has meanwhile won 114,148 Euros. That's really a fantastic result for this twelve-year old stallion bred by my mother.

But our newcomer, Blind Date by Breitling W, who we call Beate, took a very respectable 14th place with the 21,700 Euros she won this year.
I only took over this mare from the Wittig family last spring and for that short time I am very pleased with our achievements, most recently first and top placings in Oldenburg and Stuttgart.
