Whitsbury Manor Stud announces stallion fees

WHITSBURY Manor Stud in Hampshire has announced its fees for the 2012 breeding season, with two stallions having their fees reduced.

Avonbridge, sire of Tuesday's Group 3 Prix de Seine-et-Oise winner Iver Bridge Lad, has had his fee reduced from £3,500 to £3,000.

Gimcrack Stakes winner Showcasing, who retired to Whistbury this year, has had his fee reduced by 10 per cent and will stand at £4,500.

Compton Place, sire of this year's star sprinter Deacon Blues, will remain at £6,000 and Sakhee's Secret, whose first two-year-0lds race in 2012, will stay at £5,500.

Whistbury Manor Stud manager Charlie Oakshott said: "We have set our fees to try and help commercial breeders in what are still difficult times and also taken the decision to offer new terms of no foal, free return to try and soften any unfortunate blow."
