Oasis Dream stud fee increased to £85,000

JUDDMONTE stallion Oasis Dream will stand at a £20,000 higher fee in 2011 after a season in which the son of Green Desert consolidated his standing as one of Europe’s elitesires, with runners such as Approve, Lady Jane Digby, Midday and Tuscan Evening.

The 30 per cent increase to £85,000 from £65,000 is the most significant rise among Juddmonte’s eight UK stallions and Dansili remains unchanged at £65,000, despite being represented this year by runners of the calibre of Harbinger, Proviso and Zoffany.

General manager Philip Mitchell said: "We have always tried to ensure that our fees are areflection of the economic climate within the industry.

"In Dansili and Oasis Dream we have two exceptional sires and remain grateful for the support breeders have given these stallions. There has been an adjustment to the fee ofOasis Dream but breeders should be aware that with both these stallions there will be a strict restriction on numbers."

Mitchell also revealed that, with the exception of Dansili and Oasis Dream, all other Juddmonte stallion nominations would be sold on a live foal basis. "We hope this will be of benefit to breeders and help with their projected cash flow," he said.

Beat Hollow is down by £1,000 to £5,000 next year, Champs Elysees remains at £10,000, Observatory, sire of Twice Over, is up to £5,000 from £4,000, Rail Link is down by £500 to £7,000, Three Valleys stays at £5,000, and Zamindar drops to £12,000 from £15,000.
