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. 

Philipp turned his lifelong love for horses into a profession and 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.
