Ronald Rauscher Bloodstock: Success since 1999 ...

The Ronald Rauscher Bloodstock Agency was established in 1999. Valuable practical experience beforehand was gained during an apprenticeship stretching over two years at Gestüt Röttgen in Germany, followed up by a two year stint during the heydays of Windfields Farm in Oshawa, Ont. Canada of Northern Dancer and Nijinsky fame.

Coming back to Europe 1985, Ronald Rauscher was appointed manager of Baronrath Stud Ltd., Co. Kildare, Ireland (Breeders of Star Appeal and Strong Gale).

After five years he decided to go out on his own and established Barnane Stud, Co. Tipperary, Ireland as a successful private farm and home of classic winners.

Returning to Germany in 1998 it was decided to start-up an agency dealing with all aspects of thoroughbred breeding and racing.

During that time, Ronald Rauscher made the initial contact with Gary Tanaka by selling the top older horse Caitano (GB) to him. That was a start of a long lasting and successful business relationship.

Simultaneously the cooperation with Dr. Christoph Berglar was developed at the Union Stud, Eitorf, Germany, which culminated in the breeding and racing successes of Novellist (IRE), Protectionist (GER) and Pastorius (GER). From 2001 onwards it was apparent that Ronald Rauscher was getting more and more business, consigning at the major sales at home and abroad and it didn't take long, before the first ever yearlings consigned from Germany were sold at Park Paddocks Tattersalls, Newmarket.

In 2010 the lease of the Union Stud came to an end and a new chapter was started by purchasing Stonereath Farm (Kentucky) for the Berglar family. Nowadays Peter Berglar is completely in charge of US operations, whereas Ronald Rauscher is managing the European stock of Dr. Christoph Berglar.

With the sale of Lucas Cranach (GER), Mawingo (GER) and Protectionist (GER) to Australian Bloodstock starting in 2011, a new door in the business was opened.

Global contacts and a thorough background knowledge of the industry ensure, that Ronald Rauscher Bloodstock can guarantee further successful service to it's clients, when it comes to selecting the right horses at any given time.
