Paco Boy's New Zealand shuttle fee set

PACO BOY'S fee for his shuttle season at Waikato Stud in New Zealand has been announced at NZ$12,500 (£5,943/€7,054). The son of Desert Style covers his first mares at Highclere Stud off a fee of £8,500.

The winner of eleven races at two to five, Paco Boy won over distances of 6f to 1m, though there was much debate over whether he truly stayed a mile following five straight wins over 7f and two defeats over 1m in his three-year-old season.

The following year, with trainer Richard Hannon and jockey Richard Hughes adamant that 1m held no fears, Paco Boy took the Group 2 Bet365 Mile at Sandown, and two starts later the Group 1 Queen Anne Stakes at Royal Ascot.

He was mostly kept to a mile thereafter, adding a second Bet365 Mile and a Lockinge Stakes win to his impressive cv.
