Oasis Dream stud fee more than doubled

JUDDMONTE has published the 2010 stud fees for its European stallion roster at Banstead Manor Stud in Newmarket.

Oasis Dream, who enjoyed a phenomenal run of form this year with his representatives including Prix duMoulin hero Aqlaam, Nassau Stakes winner Midday and Prix Morny scorer Arcano, has had his fee increased by 116 per cent from £30,000 to £65,000.

Dansili, whose headline acts this season have been top-class milers Zacinto and Delegator, will also stand at £65,000 - the same as in 2009.

The fees for Zamindar, best known as the sire of exceptional racemare Zarkava, and Three Valleys, who stood his second season this year, have also been left unchanged.

Rail Link, Beat Hollow and Observatory have all received fee reductions.

Last month's Canadian International winner Champs Elysees, a brother to Dansili, is a new recruit to the Banstead Manor Stud roster and will stand at £10,000.

Sub-fertile Cacique, another Group 1-winning brother to Champs Elysees who stood his first season at Banstead Manor Stud in 2007, has been removed from the Juddmonte roster but will be used privately.

Juddmonte general manager Philip Mitchell said: "In line with the current economic climate we recognise that this is not an easy time for breeders. We have therefore either held or reduced all our fees with the exception of Oasis Dream.

"With over 100 individual winners and 19 stakes winners including three Group 1 winners this year Oasis Dream has been described as 'the undoubted sire sensation of 2009'.

"We now believe he deserves his position as a pre-eminent stallion in Europe alongside champion sire Dansili."
