Ad Valorem to remain with Darley in Australia

AD VALOREM, who has stood at Coolmore for the last four seasons, will not cover in the northern hemisphere in 2011 and will instead remain in Australia to stand under the Darley banner.

The son of Danzig was originally owned in partnership with Coolmore and Woodlands Stud before the latter was bought in its entirety by Sheikh Mohammed in 2008. He stood this year at Kelvinside Stud at a fee of Aus$11,000 (£6,863, €8,200).

The Middle Park and Queen Anne Stakes winner had his first European two-year-old runners this year, with his highest earner being the Italian-trained Listed winner Samaden. He sired seven winners in Britain and Ireland from a first crop that was conceived at a fee of €15,000. He stood this year for €5,000.
