Gone West unchanged
GONE WEST will stand a fee of $85,000 next season, the same figure that he commanded this year.
The 24-year-old son of Mr Prospector, who has been represented by Grade 1 winners Marsh Side and Zaftig this year, covered 63 mares at Mill Ridge Farm in Kentucky in 2008.
Mill Ridge's other stallion, Johar, has had his fee reduced to $10,000 from $12,500. The Breeders' Cup Turf-winning son of Gone West is the sire of eight winners to date from his first crop.
