German Breeder Buys Historic US Stonereath Farm
In the US, prominent German owner-breeder Dr Christoph Berglar "has bought the historic Kentucky stud Stonereath Farm" reported racingpost.com. The most famous resident of Stonereath (a 100-acre facility near Lexington owned by Darrell & Lendy Brown since 1962) was 1982 Kentucky broodmare-of-the-year Best In Show, who was buried there after her death in 1990. Berglar "will continue to keep mares at Gestut Schlenderhan in Germany, but plans to migrate part of his breeding operation to Stonereath". His son Peter "will take over management of the Kentucky stud & Ronald Rauscher will act as adviser". The 1st European mares are expected to arrive in September & Berglar explained: "First of all our mares currently based in France will be transported. But of course some will remain in Schlenderhan. However, we also plan to buy broodmares & foals in America."
