Lookin At Lucky to begin stud career at $35,000

PREAKNESS Stakes hero Lookin At Lucky, also the champion juvenile colt of North America in 2009, will begin his stallion career at Coolmore's Ashford Stud in Kentucky at a fee of $35,000 next year.

Ashford Stud's other new recruit for 2011, triple Grade 2 winner Munnings, will command a fee of $12,500.

The trio of Majestic Warrior, Scat Daddy and Van Nistelrooy have had their fees cut by a third, while Giant's Causeway, who has quickly established himself as an influential sire, grandsire and broodmare sire, has had his stud fee adjusted downwards from $100,000 to $85,000 for 2011.

Anglo-Irish 2,000 Guineas winner Henrythenavigator, whose first crop are foals, has also had his fee cut slightly, going from $40,000 to $35,000 for next year.

Ashford Stud manager Dermot Ryan said: "With two great new sire prospects for 2011 in Lookin At Lucky and Munnings this is a very exciting year for Ashford.

"Our flag bearer Giant's Causeway, who was champion sire in 200,9 is currently lying second, with a shot at retaining his title, while Henrythenavigator led the first crop sires at Keeneland November with a weanling average of $208,000."
