Acclamation to remain
at €35,000 in 2013
RATHBARRY Stud in County Cork has left the 2013 fees for its Flat stallions unchanged from this year – meaning its flagship sire Acclamation will once again stand at €35,000.
Acclamation's Group 2-winning son Lilbourne Lad will command a fee of €7,500 in his second season, while Canford Cliffs' sire Tagula stays at €4,000.
A few tweaks have been made to the fees for the Rathbarry jumps stallions based at Glenview Stud, though.
Former champion jumps sire Presenting has been reduced slightly to €10,000 from €12,000, while Robin Des Champs, whose first Irish-conceived crops have been well received at the sales, has had a small increase to €6,000 from €5,000.
Glenview Stud newcomer Sholokhov, whose son Esmondo won a Group 1 hurdle at Auteuil on Sunday, will stand his first season at Glenview at a fee of €5,000. Dubai Destination remains on €2,500.
