LEADING US sire Malibu Moon has been rewarded with a fee increase from $40,000 to$60,000 for 2011, after a good year with his runners.

The Spendthrift Farm-based son of A. P. Indy is sire of three individual Grade 1 winners in 2010: Ruffian Handicap winner Malibu Prayer, Coaching Clubs American Oaks and Mother Goose Stakes winner Devil May Care, and Ogden Phipps Handicap and Beldame Stakes winner Life At Ten.

"Malibu Moon has proven himself to be a top sire with each year being better than the one before," said Spendthrift Farm owner B. Wayne Hughes.

"We thought he earned a bump this year and wanted to put him at a price that breeders would feel is still good value."
