Teuflesberg (foaled February 3, 2004 in Kentucky) is an American thoroughbred stallion racehorse. He was sired by 2001 United States Champion 2-Yr-Old Colt Johannesburg, out of the Devils Bag mare, St. Michelle. He was a $9,000 Fasig-Tipton October yearling sale.
Trained by Jamie Sanders, Teuflesberg was raced heavily as a two-year old, with 11 starts in 2006, coming in second to Scat Daddy in the Sanford Stakes before finally winning the Sugar Bowl Stakes on Christmas Eve. However, he had a habit of getting in trouble early in his races, especially coming out of the starting gate.
Then in January 2007, as a three year old, he placed third behind Hard Spun in the Lecomte Stakes. Moved to Oaklawn Park in February, he wired the Southwest Stakes, beating Hard Spun, who came in third. He failed to overcome a slow start in the Rebel Stakes, and placed third to Curlin. A tough fourth by two noses and a head was all he got in the Blue Grass Stakes.
He won the seven furlong Grade II Woody Stephens Breeders' Cup Stakes and then placed second in the six furlong Grade II Carry Back Stakes and second in the eight furlong Glow Stakes, ridden by Edgar Prado, his first race on turf.
During the running of the Grade III Phoenix Stakes at Keeneland on October 6, 2007, Teuflesberg suffered medial and lateral sesamoid fractures in his left front leg, effectively ending his racing career. He was taken to Rood and Riddle Equine Clinic in Lexington, where his fetlocks were fused in surgery.
In December 2007, it was announced that a fully-recovered Teuflesberg would stand his initial stud season at Hurricane Hall in Lexington, KY, for a fee of $10,000.
