Sales Activity at Triumph Stables

Triumph Stables has seen a flourish of activity since the beginning of the new year. In the sales department, Jeff Bessey is the new owner of MSV Ringo Starr (Liberation First Star x LCS Mona Lisa), an outstanding 2002 chestnut gelding bred and formerly owned by Van Meter Morgans. Also bred and sold by Van Meter Morgans was MSV McCartney (Stonecroft Masquerade x LCS Mona Lisa) to Blair Settle of Decatur, MI. This 2002 gelding is a three-quarter brother to World Champions Stonecroft Byzantine and Stonecroft Edwardian. Another big Van Meter sale was the spectacular three year old stallion, Cartier (Cedar CreekHarlequin x Schiaparelli). This big bay youngster will be under the direction of new trainer and agent for the buyer, Anne Benson of Kornhugel Farm. The lucky new owner is Gay O. Gove of Topsfield, MA. After all those sales, Margaret Van Meter could not resist purchasing the lovely World Champion Tara's Sienna from the Ost Family of Carmel, IN. Sienna is booked to Aljak's Double Whammy for 2003, in hopes of producing yet another nice Sweepstakes foal by this grand sire. John & Belle Hufferd represented both parties in this sale. With one horse gone, the Ost Family found THB Heaven's Masterpiece (Futurity French Command x Brentwood Alica), was the perfect replacement for daughter Alex. This elegant gelding was purchased from breeders Ted and Debbie Baker of Coatesville, IN. Agent for the Bakers were Jim and Fay Lowry of Lowry Stables, Seymour, IL. John and Belle Hufferd represented the Osts in this purchase. B-L Jubilee Flaire (Noble Flaire x B-L Superfection) has found a new amateur pleasure driving partner with Myllis Csee of Grass Valley, CA. Dan Ramsour of Baccarat Farms represented Ms. Csee, and the Hufferds represented the Ellen & Michael McCook, former owners of this Grand National Champion. Sarava, a snappy 2002 chestnut gelding sired by Aljak's Double Whammy and out of Rose Valley Reflection, has found an admiring new owner in Linda Swink of Maple Park, IL, who purchased him from breeders John & Belle Hufferd. John and Belle were also the breeders and sellers of La Belle of the Ball (Aljak's Double Whammy x Rose Valley Riana), a fancy two year old filly purchased by Larry and Sue Hanson of Ossian, IN. The elegant black 2002 filly, Tanzania (Stonecroft Byzantine x Penncrest Prophecy), was purchased from John and Belle Hufferd by Richard and Jean Withers of Constantine, MI. Eastbound is Raintree Resurrection (FCF Val d'Isere x FCF Dearest Illusion), a handsome bay three year old gelding, recently purchased by Julie Costello of Wilbraham, MA. Cindy Mugnier of Fox Meadow Farm represented Ms. Costello, who purchased "Mac" as a future mount for her 13 yr old son, John. John & Belle Hufferd represented Raintree in this sale.
