Journeyman Stud's Teuflesberg scored his first U. S. winner on July 8 at Calder when Trinniberg dominated a field of 2-year-old colts to break his maiden by 5 3/4-lengths in a time of :59.24 seconds for the five furlongs.
Bred in Kentucky by JM Stables Inc., Trinniberg made his career debut a winning one with a strong show of speed right from the time the gate sprang open. The dark bay maintained a 1-2 length lead until he hit the top of the stretch, when he pulled away willingly to leave the competition to battle for the minor awards.
Trinniberg earned $16,800 for owner Shivananda Parbhoo, who bought the colt for $21,000 at the OBS 2-year-old sale this past April. Trinniberg is the second winning foal out of Bella Dorato, who was stakes-placed at age two.
Teuflesberg scored his biggest win on the racetrack in the Woody Stephens S. (G2) on Belmont Stakes Day as a 3-year-old. The top sprinter also stretched out his speed to capture the one-mile Southwest S. at Oaklawn earlier that season, defeating Hard Spun and jumping onto the Triple Crown trail. As a 2-year-old, he won the Sugar Bowl S. at Fair Grounds. Teuflesberg retired to stud in 2008 with earnings of $621,981.
By Johannesburg out of the Devil's Bag mare St. Michele, Teuflesberg stands at Brent and Crystal Fernung's Journeyman Stud in Ocala, FL for a fee of $3,500, stands and nurses.
