Vital Equine and Reel Buddy's stud fees slashed

BEARSTONE Stud has published next year's fees for its stallions.

Last year's 2,000 Guineasrunner-up Vital Equine has had his fee slashed from £6,000 in 2008 to £3,500. Sussex Stakes hero Reel Buddy has also been the subject of a substantial fee decrease, from £3,000 to £1,250.

The stud has announced that Reel Buddy will stand at its National Hunt division, and will be marketed as a dual-purpose stallion.

The fee for Firebreak has been adjusted downwards slightly from £3,500 to £3,000.

Indesatchel's fee has been left unaltered at £3,000, and Mind Games, who stands at YortonFarm, will also stand at the same fee as this year — £1,500.
