US Triple Crown Breeding Highlights Falling Sire Fees
Following last weekend’s victory by 3YO colt Ruler On Ice (Roman Ruler-Champagne Glow, by Saratoga Six) in the Gr1 Belmont Stakes (12 furlongs) at Belmont Park, “the breeding of this year's US Triple Crown winners provides a clear sign of how much US stallion fees have dropped from unsustainable heights” reported racingpost.com.
- Ruler On Ice is by Roman Ruler (Fusaichi Pegasus-Silvery Swan, by Silver Deputy) who stands at Hill 'n' Dale Farm in Kentucky for US$15,000 - but stood at US$30,000 when Ruler On Ice was conceived in 2007.
- The Gr1 Kentucky Derby (10 furlongs) at Churchill Downs was won by Team Valor International's home-bred colt Animal Kingdom (Leroidesanimaux-Dalicia, by Acatenango) - his sire Leroidesanimaux (Candy Stripes-Dissemble, by Ahonoora) stands at US$12,500 this year at Stonewall Farm in Florida but commanded a fee of US$25,000 when he covered the colt's dam Dalicia.
- And the Gr1 Preakness Stakes (9.5 furlongs) at Pimlico was won by the colt Shackleford (Forestry-Oatsee, Unbridled) - his sire Forestry (Storm Cat-Shared Interest, by Pleasant Colony) stood at US$12,500 this year at Taylor Made in Kentucky, but was advertised at $125,000 in 2007.
