JUDDMONTE ANNOUNCES 2014 FEES

Juddmonte Farms is pleased to announce the 2014 nomination fees for its stallions.

BATED BREATH  -  £8,000 SLF
CACIQUE  -  £12,000 SLF (limited book)
CHAMPS ELYSEES  -  £5,000 SLF
DANSILI  -  £95,000 SLF (limited book)
FRANKEL  -  £125,000 SLF
OASIS DREAM  -  £85,000 SLF
RAIL LINK  -  £5,000 SLF
 
With the exception of two stallions, the fees, including those for dual world champion FRANKEL, remain unaltered. Juddmonte’s two flagship stallions, DANSILI and OASIS DREAM, see a rise to £95,000 and £85,000 respectively.

General Manager Philip Mitchell commented: “We have seen some very buoyant sales at the top end of the market and this is very definitely where DANSILI belongs, which he again demonstrated this year by siring six individual Group 1 winners of 10 Group 1 races. 

OASIS DREAM is a leading sire of two-year-olds and was once again the leading British-based sire by yearling average at Tattersalls Book 1 – with an average of over 415,000gns for 11 horses sold.

“We were delighted with FRANKEL's first season at stud and his fee continues to reflect his status as a world champion racehorse. 

The fees for BATED BREATH, CACIQUE, CHAMPS ELYSEES and RAIL LINK remain unchanged.

“Track record breaking sprinter BATED BREATH proved very popular with breeders in his first season this year, and was oversubscribed.

CHAMPS ELYSEES has got off to an excellent start with his first two-year-olds, with 12 individual winners including Listed winner and Gr.2 placed Avenue Gabriel – a fact noticed at the sales, where he had yearlings sell for 170,000gns, 105,000gns and €90,000 this autumn.

RAIL LINK was responsible for seven blacktype performers in 2013, including a Gr.3 winner and a Gr.1 runner-up, as well as some highly rated two-year-old winners, and his yearlings have averaged almost £35,000 this year.

“We are also pleased to announce that CACIQUE is back on the main roster for 2014, when he will cover a limited book of 50 mares. Careful management protocol in the last two seasons has resulted in a significant improvement to his fertility.”
