Passion for thoroughbreds
and horseman as a vocation

Philipp Graf Stauffenberg is the founder and manager of 
STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK. He has a special bond 
with thoroughbreds and values them as very sensitive, 
incredibly intelligent animals and extremely willing athletes. 

His admiration for thoroughbreds led him to becoming not only a professional in the industry, 
but also a private breeder. Through STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK he provides all aspects of 
thoroughbred breeding and racing services to help his clients to acquire, breed, race and 
sell outstanding thoroughbreds.

He perceives himself as a "developer" of thoroughbred athletes and it fills
him with pride to see “his products” to fulfill their final targets and winning
races around the world. Living in and with the nature, acting on a strong intuition
for the potential of individual horses and the thrill of turning them into
top athletes, make this job a true vocation for him.

He has been active in leading positions at various stud farms since 1985,
founded STAUFFENBERG BLOODSTOCK in 1994 and took on stud farm 
SCHLOSSGUT ITLINGEN in 1999. Together with his wife Marion, he breeds 
and races thoroughbreds under the name Graf and Gräfin Stauffenberg.
