Darley cuts unproven sire fees by 25 per cent

SHEIKH MOHAMMED'S Darley operation has cut the 2011 stud fees for its unproven sires by at least 25 per cent.

But three of Darley's highflying young stallions have had their fees more than doubled: Dubawi goes from £20,000 to £55,000; Shamardal goes from €20,000 to €50,000; and champion first-season sire elect Iffraaj is rewarded with a fee increase to €15,000 from €6,000.

The Darley 2011 roster features two new retirees: Breeders' Cup Juvenile winner Vale Of York will stand at Kildangan Stud for a fee of €5,000, while Group 1 performer Alexandros joins Haras du Logis in France at a fee of €4,000.

Kheleyf is the only stallion changing location in 2011.  He will move from Kildangan Stud to Dalham Hall.
