Even The Score give
an increase in fees

WITH most stallions having been given fee reductions this year due to the current economic circumstances, it is somewhat surprising to see that a stallion has received a late fee increase but that is precisely what has happened to Even The Score who stands at Millennium Farms.

It was announced on Friday that the fee for the stallion, a son of Unbridled's Song, is to be doubled from $7,500 to $15,000.

"Due to the overwhelming demand for Even the Score, his prominence as a freshman sire, and the fact that his book is essentially full for 2009, we will accept a few more quality mares at the $15,000 fee," said Ro Parra, owner of Millennium Farms.

Last season Even The Score got 14 winners on all three US racing surfaces. He finished up as the sixth leading Kentucky-based first-season sire and currently has a Kentucky Derby hopeful in the shape of Take The Points who finished second to The Pamplemousse in the Grade 3 Sham Stakes in February.

Out of the Rahy mare Ashtabula, Even The Score and won or was placed in 19 of his 29 lifetime starts. He won two Grade 2 races and finished third in the Grade 1 Hollywood Gold Cup.
